From Valletta to Sliema

Monday 31 Aug 2020

Whether you are a local and also if you are a tourist, you will definitely enjoy what Valletta and Sliema have to offer. Valletta, the capital city of Malta is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, holding over three hundred and twenty monuments and boasting a rich historical landscape. It is also a UNESCO world heritage site!

Sliema, on the other hand, is a leader when it comes to the most visited locations in Malta. Both locations are quite close to each other, and they also offer the opportunity for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

If you are on holiday or else have the time to treat yourself, you should definitely visit both Valletta and Sliema. Following a few hours in Valletta, you should definitely make your way to one of Malta’s main shopping locations, Sliema. There are different ways how you can make your way to Sliema from Valletta.

We suggest the ferry!

Steering away from the usual means of transport, including both cars and buses, the ferry offers a different travel experience, one which you will definitely enjoy. You will get to appreciate the beautiful sea which separates Sliema and Valletta, under the brimming Maltese sunshine.

So how do you get to the ferry?

Once you are in Valletta, you can make your way to the Marsamxett Harbour kiosk. That is the only place where you can catch the ferry to Sliema. You will then need to line up, so that you may pay the fare and board.

Once that is out of the way, you can enjoy your fifteen-minute trip as you gaze at the clear blue sea and indulge in the beautiful surroundings.

Once you arrive at Sliema you will have plenty to do! There are various shops where you can browse new clothes, gadgets, beauty products, and practically most retail items you can think of. Whilst there, it would be a pity to miss out on a short walk across the promenade where you can experience the Sliema bustle and outstanding sea view. Just spending a few minutes looking at the picturesque Sliema sea view is enough to clear your head.

The beauty of Sliema revolves around the fact that you can enjoy it at any time of the day that you visit. Staying in Sliema during the evening means that you have ample choice to select a good restaurant for a delightful meal or a couple of drinks from one of the bars.

The activities you can undertake in Sliema are endless and visiting it via the ferry only adds to the pleasant experience.
