The Dome of the Grand Master's Palace looks better from a distance than up front. The waterfront is shabby and run down in parts. If you catch the ferry from Sliema to Valletta the journey takes about 10 minutes but beware of queuing for over half an hour, then waiting on board, then crossing and waiting again to disembark.

If you are tired of visiting museums / cathedrals / exhibitions, this is exactly what you need.....to walk along the seashore breathing fresh air, to admire the beauty of Malta and white yachts and ships floating....lots of shops and cafes along the promenade

The colour of the stone walls and the atmosphere gave one a sense of sailing back in... More

Once the ships have left, the view does not really impress. Strong smell of drains and the eateries look pretty samey. Nice for a drink.

The water front in Malta is gorgeous. Very clean, flat, safe, loads of luxury yachts. Lovely blue calm water.

Wow we loved it here. We stayed at the Excelsior Grand Hotel and the view was superb. Its a busy harbour always with something going bye. We liked the town and all the open air cafes and restaurants. Do a walk, we did about 7 miles and it was excellent. The Lift is also really good, with a trip over... More
