Sliema Malta

One of the many churches you'll find in Sliema

During my two weeks in Malta I stayed in the charming neighborhood of Sliema. It was a perfect location to get out and see the rest of the island via the extensive, albeit slow, bus system.

Its best asset is its promenade, which was recently developed and winds like a ribbon around the twisting inlets of Malta’s coast. Every day the promenade is filled with locals, kids, pets, and runners who are soaking up the sun and the sea air. The promenade is dotted with ancient towers, sculptures, cafes, a myriad of benches, and playgrounds.

Opposite the promenade are modern hotels and condos which seem rather cold and lifeless, but the real estate is prime and considering Malta is a vacation destination for many Europeans, the high rises make sense. However, it doesn’t take but a few blocks to get beyond the perimeter of high rises and back into the real, local neighborhoods of Sliema which is where I was most happy with my camera. The architecture, house names,  and little bars kept me entertained for hours as I would walk around the winding streets with my camera.
