Urban Sliema is located just a few minutes’ drive from the Capital City of the island, Valletta. This central location and the coastline up to neighbouring St Julians constitutes Malta’s main coastal resort. This town is surrounded by tranquil and traditional Maltese town houses.

Sliema is renowned as being a centre for shopping, restaurants and cafe life. It is also a major commercial and residential area. Sliema, which means `peace’, was once a quiet fishing town on the peninsula across the Grand Harbour from Valletta. The town began to develop rapidly in the early 20th century as a summer resort for wealthier Valletta residents. Their elegant villas and town houses line the quiet inland streets.

The Sliema promenade offers on one side stunning views across to Valletta and on the other, open sea views. There are plenty of benches making it an ideal social meeting place for locals and tourists alike during the warm summer evenings.
