This still enshrines part of old Malta, the new hotel (which was a shell when we were last there, does not spoil it. Pity about the air conditioning units on the walls of one old building. The square itself has not change with its outside café and the upside-down LOVE sculpture on the waterfront. Well worth a visit

Balluta is the nicest place to visit in Sliema. Surrounded by History, Hotels and Culture is the top spot in the Area.

What can one say? Stunning! The imposing church and the wonderful sea below it, nice promenade to walk around on and numerous restaurants to eat. A bit trafficky due to the cars, but otherwise it's a great outing and a nice walk between Sliema and St. Julian's .

A small square looking out at the bay surrounded by great restaurants, a genuine French patisserie, an amazing high-end Italian shoe boutique, and Le meridien hotel and Myoka Spa. Can't go wrong.

If you are walking from Exile Bay to Spinola Bay then it's a great place to walk by. I think it would be wonderful to sit on the sunny day.
