The town of Sliema is located on the northeast coast of the main island of Malta, between the peninsula of St. Julian’s and the town of Gzira. With almost fifteen thousand inhabitants, it is one of the most densely populated residential areas of Malta, and the town where most foreign expatriates reside. Even though Tas-Sliema, as it is originally called, is together with St. Julian’s one of the most touristic places in Malta, the bulk of the offered lodging consists of hotel rooms -- there is a limited number of hostels in Sliema.
Sliema, as compared to St. Julian’s, is a classier tourist destination. You do not need to worry much for the location of your Sliema hostel; distances in Malta are quite small. Personnel are great, as with everywhere here -- residents of Malta are amazingly helpful, polite, and friendly in general, so do not hesitate to ask for whatever info and help you need.
Considering that it is mainly a residential area, the town offers a large variety of restaurants with all kinds of cuisine -- you will be able to try some quality local dishes including rabbit and fish meals. A good selection of bars, pubs, and clubs is also available. The majority of those facilities are located in the promenade along the seafront -- The Strand -- which is ideal for evening strolls. From here, you will also get some beautiful views over the floodlit bastions of Valletta. The flat-rocked beaches are great for aquatic sports and for sunbathing as well.
But where Sliema stands out is the shopping -- it constitutes the largest and most modern shopping district of Malta and along its streets you will find all local and international favorite brands as well as a variety of famous designer labels.
You will arrive here by bus through Valletta. Keep in mind though that the appropriate bus lines serve both Sliema and St. Julian’s, which are Malta’s most popular destinations. Thus, during the summer months buses are particularly crowded during the peak hours.
