Attractions in Sliema
Stella Maris Church: The oldest parish church you’ll see on Sliema holidays, Stella Maris was built in 1878 for the growing Christian population of the town. Its pretty bell towers and terracotta coloured walls make the exterior very inviting, whilst inside the altar is adorned with ornate statues and works of art.
Holy Trinity Church: It’s slightly strange to see such an English-style church on your Sliema holidays. Made of Victorian Gothic stone, this Anglican church looks as if it could easily fit in an English country village!
Activities in Sliema
Royal Malta Golf Course: This lush green golf course is an enchanting oasis in the middle of the dusky plains just 2km south from Sliema holidays. The club has a long and illustrious history dating back to 1888 when it was used as a social establishment for British servicemen based in Malta. Today the golf course opens its doors so that everybody on Sliema holidays can enjoy the well-tended greens and tree-lined fairways.
Manoel Island: Adjoined to Sliema by a bridge, this little island has a number of interesting little sights to visit. Although the entire island is not open to the public (as it’s undergoing an extensive renovation project) you can still visit the 18th century Fort Manoel, the Polverista (an ammunition building), a chapel and a solider barracks. It certainly makes for an interesting excursion on your Sliema holidays!
Splash and Fun Water Park: Around 5km along the coast from Sliema, this fun and colourful water park has a number of exciting attractions. Rides range from the thrilling Black Hole and Sidewinder to the more sedate Lazy River and Family Slides. It’s certainly a great way to spend an enjoyable day on your Sliema holidays.
Beaches in Sliema
Ferro Bay: Whilst you won’t come across any sandy beaches on Sliema holidays, there are a good number of public lidos on the north side of the peninsula. Ferro Bay is the most popular of these lidos, and you can choose to rent sun beds to relax on the smooth concrete platforms by the sea.
Mellieha Bay: Considered by many to be the best beach in Malta, this golden sandy stretch is around 18km from Sliema holidays. It’s well worth travelling here to enjoy the emerald sea line and the huge selection of water sports. It’s easy to understand why this is Malta’s most popular beach!
Golden Bay: Around 18km from Sliema, on the north western coast of Malta, you’ll find another gorgeous golden beach. This one is surrounded by rocky cliffs and lush green countryside, making it even more appealing.

TemptAsian Restaurant: In very sleek, modern surroundings with plush, vibrant coloured seats and sparkling clean tables, this restaurant is certainly the epitome of elegant dining on Sliema holidays. As you may have guessed from the name, this restaurant specialises in Asian cuisine, including prawns with ginger, chicken tempura and fresh sushi.
L’Artist: In a complete contrast, L’Artist may not have the stunning modern decor of TemptAsian, but it certainly offers some beautiful cuisine to savour on your Sliema holidays. There are some very creative dishes on offer here too, such as strawberry and mushroom soup and prawns in wine and brandy.
Mint: This charming, colourful cafe has a fantastic choice of sandwiches, cakes and breakfast food. Some of the more decadent selections really do have to be seen to be believed! Specifically, we’re thinking of the mountainous chocolate brownie, banana toffee cake, and huge strawberry milkshakes.
