Sliema is one of Malta's main coastal resort towns and a heartland for shopping, entertainment and café life. The long stretch of rocky coastline that goes from Qui-si-Sana to St. Julian's is thronged with sunbathers during the peak summer months.
Steps and handrails placed every so often allow easy access to the water. There are plenty of flat rocks to spread a towel on. The sea here is deep and generally clean, clear and safe to swim. It is also excellent for snorkelling. Some hotels along the front, especially at the St. Julian's end, provide beach concessions equipped with pools, water sports and lido areas for nightlife. The favourite beach areas are the Tigné area, Qui si-Sana, Għar id-Dud, the Exiles and Fond Għadir. Some are well-known lidos or beach clubs with public access.
In peak summer the Sliema beaches become a very sociable, lively place to be by mid-afternoon. The promenade is excellent for long, striding walks in winter, slow strolls on summer evenings and for watching the spectacular waves during freak autumn storms. You will find plenty of snack bars and restaurants on the coast road and kiosks near the shoreline.
The position of the hotel in relation to the neighbouring localities of Sliema and St. Julians is perfect for all reasons. Whether you are looking to explore Malta by bus or you prefer to enjoy a cruise along the coast, the Hotel is perfectly situated to take advantage of this. Only five minutes from this hotel, you can find the bus terminus of Sliema and the main harbour for pleasure cruising. The nightlife resort of St. Julians is a short distance along the coast and can be reached easily by bus or by walking along the seafront. An hourly ferry crosses from the centre of Sliema to Valletta on the opposite side of the harbour.
