Wonderful walk

It's a very nice walk to take! It connects saint Julians and Sliema. You relax walking next to the sea and see all of these beautiful buildings. It shows the modern side of Malta.

Absolute perfect place to be in Malta. Very central. With lots of fantastic restaurants and bars... Close to sliema and paceville. Take a trip on the oki-ko-ki to comino and Gozo with Tony Muscat..you will not be disappointed. The hop on/off buses are fab way of seeing the island also

It is the happening part of Malta -It is the bay in the middle of St Julian's, Paceville and Sliema, this area is where the nightclubs, bars and restaurants are everywhere. You can swim in the bay, it is very protected or just walk around, tour stops and the Scooter rental ( Medsun) is located here. If you are renting... More
