Sliema is a busy town located on a peninsula with views of Valletta and Floriana on one side and the open sea on the other. It is located fairly centrally on the Eastern side of Malta. It is a great place to shop, enjoy the cafe culture and eat out. There are many hotels and apartments to let for those who like to be self-catering. It is also the place to catch the ferry to Valletta, buses to many places and also boat trips round the harbours and round the island. It is within walking distance of St Julians and Paceville where you find the best nightlife of the island, more restaurants and other places of entertainment. You will find examples of some of the traditional Maltese townhouses and terraced houses if you take a stroll through the town. Many of these are unfortunately being redeveloped as apartments, but there are areas which are still unspoilt and worthy of a visit. Sliema is a perfect place from which to explore St Julians, the Marina in Msida and to take a bus trip to Valletta.
