Its central location is also favoured by a very good network of connections, to discover the rest of the Island.
St. Julian’s is now a major residential and tourist centre, and home to some of Malta’s newest hotels.
It is now an extension of Sliema although it started life as a small fishing village around Spinola and Balluta Bays. St. Julian’s merges with Paceville, Malta’s main nightlife centre where there are clubs, casinos and numerous restaurants, cafes and bars.
The Portomaso Marina is situated north of the Grand Harbour and comprises of 3 basins;
The North Basin is used for smaller craft and water sports operations.
South Basin accommodates up to 45 sailing boats to a maximum length of 16m.
The West Basin accommodates up to 60 motor cruisers to a maximum length of 16m.
Picturesque Spinola Bay is still used by fishermen whose traditional boats are housed just below the restaurants. The bay is particularly attractive at night and as a venue for open-air dining. The elegant Spinola Palace, built in 1658 by an Italian knight, Giovanni Spinola, is the landmark historic building on the bay.
Bay Street Shopping Complex
Bay Street Shopping Complex offers you a great mix of high street brands, quality independent shops, restaurants, services and family entertainment. It is open 10am until 10pm 7 days a week, so there really is no other shopping and leisure destination that can keep you entertained every day!
Located in the heart of Malta’s premier tourist destination, St. George’s Bay, its unique blend of indoor & outdoor shopping, dining and leisure is complemented with a regular events & entertainment programme creating a lively atmosphere for families and shoppers all year round.
St. George's Bay
A recent major improvement on the previous tiny patch of sand that used to be St. George’s Bay, this beach is now larger and is today possibly one of the most popular beaches in this part of the island.
Facilities are available and the beach is surrounded by restaurants, bars and cafes, less than a minute’s walk from the Hotel.
Tas-Sliema and the coastline up to neighbouring St. Julian’s constitutes Malta’s main coastal resort.
It is a centre for shopping, restaurants and cafe’ life. Tas-Sliema, which means `peace’, was once a quiet fishing town on the peninsula across 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 Tas-Sliema promontory offers on one side stunning views across to Valletta and on the other, open sea views. The promenade, which runs for several kilometres from Gżira just south of Tas-Sliema to St. Julian’s, is ideal for joggers or for those wishing to go on a leisurely walk. There are plenty of seats along the promenade and on summer evenings the seafront becomes a meeting place for locals and visitors.
Valletta, The Fortress City, Citta’ Umilissima – “A city built by gentlemen for gentlemen”. These are some of the names given to Malta’s capital city: a living, working city, the administrative and commercial heart of the Islands.
Valletta is named after its founder, the respected Grand Master of the Order of St. John, Jean Parisot de la Valette. The magnificent fortress city grew on the arid rock of Mount Sceberras peninsula, which rises steeply from two deep harbours, Marsamxett and Grand Harbour.
Valletta with its impressive bastions, forts and cathedral, magnificent churches and palaces was completed in the astonishingly short time of 15 years after the first stone was laid in 1565 after the great siege of Malta.
Valletta has many titles, all recalling its rich historical past. It is the “modern” city built by the Knights of St John; a masterpiece of the Baroque; a European Art City and a World Heritage City. Today, it is one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world.
