Cresting the northeastern coast of Malta, Sliema is an attractive seaside town and a favourite retreat for visitors staying in Malta.
Reachable from the Radisson Blu Resort, Malta St. Julian's, by foot or local transport along the promenade, guests can view the majestic walled city of Valletta from Sliema and Ta’Xbiex. Spend a day in the town’s seafront public garden for a true taste of Malta and the Mediterranean.
After a day spent exploring Sliema and Tigne, relax and enjoy the hotel's attractive surroundings. Savour an al fresco dinner overlooking the Mediterranean at the Edge Restaurant in the summer months or indulge in exquisite cocktails on the scenic terrace at the Bridge Bar. Then, turn in for a restful night in one of the superior rooms and suites this five-star Malta accommodation has to offer.
Explore the history and folklore of Sliema and its surroundings
Sliema offers visitors an excellent day out exploring its history and folklore. Visit the stunning fortification of Fort Manoel commanding the entrance to Marsamxett Harbour; it stands as a monument to Malta's 18th century military architecture. This Ta’Xbeix centrepiece also served as a location for the television series Game of Thrones.
Delve into a little local folklore by visiting the beautiful parish church of Gzira, known locally as 'tal-Ġebla or 'of the stone.' Legend holds that drunken sailors threw stones at a portrait of the Madonna, breaking the glass but leaving the portrait untouched. Remnants of the broken glass and the portrait of the Madonna can still be viewed at the parish church.
