Sliema

— 9 nights
Situated on Malta's northeastern coastline, Sliema features a well-developed waterfront, the favorite stomping ground of the nation's wealthy upper class.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Parish Church of Jesus of Nazareth and Saint Patrick's Church. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Spas and Souvenirs That Don't Suck. Step out of Sliema with an excursion to San Gakbu in Victoria--about 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at Independence gardens, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, pause for some serene contemplation at Knisja tal-Madonna ta' Pompei, and get to know the fascinating history of Vittoriosa Waterfront - Birgu Waterfront.

For where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Sliema online driving holiday planner.
