Welcome to Sliema and St. Julian's

Sliema and St Julian's are Malta's most modern and most built up areas and where most tourists stay. It is where one will find the most hotels, rental apartments, restaurants, bars, shops and clubs.

Sliema is a vibrant town where most businesses use English as the main language. All amenities are within walking distance. A large number of foreign families have moved to Sliema recently giving the town a cosmopolitan vibe.

Sliema and St Julian's form a near continuous town spread over two adjacent peninsulas with St Julian's to the north (about 20 minutes walk) and Valetta and a third peninsula to the south (about 20 minutes drive).

Malta is a very Catholic country and its people are some of the friendliest and most embracing of tourists in Europe. It is important to note though that certain behavior is strongly frowned upon (such as excessive drunken raucous behavior) and other behavior is illegal (such as topless sunbathing) despite this town being a common tourist area.

Street names in Malta are written first in Maltese, then in English. it becomes helpful to learn both since some people only use one or the other when giving directions and some maps only give the Maltese (on the assumption that the reader will be able to translate).

Sliems's main disadvantage is parking! There just isnt enough. This means you can spend 20 minutes looking for parking particularly at night.
