With miles of stunning coastline anyone booking a holiday to Malta will have the opportunity to enjoy a number of beautiful sandy beaches and secluded bays. Malta is famous for its year round weather and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean.

Sliema itself doesn’t have any sandy beaches, in fact there is no Sliema beach Malta. The shoreline spanning from the local area all the way round to St Julians has quite a rocky shore. This doesn’t stop locals from grabbing a towel and lounging by the water. Along the way there are several areas of large flat rock slabs that are ideal for those who prefer a no frills option to get working on their tan.

If you are really in the mood for spending a day at the beach and want to enjoy a great sandy beach, there are two beaches near Sliema Malta we recommend that are just a short car or bus away.
