The Island of Malta region
Malta has for sure earned a reputation more as a great holiday destination. The terrific Mediterranean climate, considerable amounts of sunshine even during the winter months and the clear, warm sea are just some of the things that lend it to this market. Add to the wonderful climate the lovely beaches, dramatic coastal scenery and variety of watersports and leisure activities, and it becomes clear why Malta is so popular with the package holidaymaker.
Malta is by no means only a place for the beach lover however. In fact, stick only to the sea and sand and you'd miss out on Malta's true highlights. Its amazing and ancient past is evident all around you the minute you step off the beaches. Man's comprehensive temple-building spree left the Ggantiji temples on Gozo, the oldest freestanding structures on earth and the labyrinthine Hypogeum containing 3600-year-old bones amongst others. A few days off the beaches will give you time to explore the bustling street of Valletta, the charm walled capital Mdina, the many attractive stone-built towns and the wonderful villages that demonstrate the quieter side of Mediterranean life.
Malta has a lot to offer, so whether its sea and sand, or history that you're after, you'll find it more than satisfies.
Sliema and the coastline up to neighbouring St Julian's constitutes Malta's main coastal resort. It is a centre for shopping, restaurants and caf'e life. Sliema is pronounced "sleeyma" and sometimes mistakenly pronounced "selima" by tourists.
Sliema is also a major commercial and residential area and houses several of Malta's most recent Shopping Malls, full of shops, restaurants, banks, supermarkets, Internet cafes, and day cruise boats.The road continues north to St. Julians and Paceville and southward towards the Strand Gzira, Ta Xbiex , Msida and Valletta. Sliema, coming from the word Sliem ,meaning 'peace', was once a fishing town on the peninsula across Grand Harbour from Valletta. The town began to develop rapidly in the early 20th century as a summer resort for wealthier Valletta residents. Their elegant villas and town houses line the quiet, inland streets. The Sliema promontory offers on one side stunning views across to Valletta and on the other, open sea views. The promenade, which runs for several kilometers from Gzira just south of Sliema to St Julian's, is ideal for walker and joggers. There are plenty of seats along the promenade and on summer evenings the seafront becomes a sociable meeting place for locals. The coastline has two tower fortifications: a De Redin watch tower built in the 17th century; the other was built by the British in neo-gothic style in the 1880s
The bus stop is just down the road from the apartment and the ferry boats are only about 15 minutes walk away. The Paceville area boasts a number of night clubs, cinemas and shopping malls. For those having young children, the Sliema promenade has a number of gardens and playgrounds were the children can spend some time playing.
