Another great bay to swim in which is clear and safe, lots of places nearby to eat and drink as well, looks good at night if you are in to photography

The square is located in Balluta Bay. The bay itself is quite spectacular, surrounded with typical Maltese buildings, a beautiful church (Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel) and a step leading down to the sea. The square behind that is fine, but not comparable to the sights around it.

If you are goin to St. Julian's after Sliema you just cross this bay that is quite interesting. Nice view over the bay and if you got the sunset you will experience a nice view.

Walk to this square from St Julians or Sliema, stop for a drink and a snack under the trees in the square at the Electric Lobster Project (mini burgers recommended), marvel at the iconic but slightly neglected Balluta Building, enjoy the view of the bay, the church and the usual chaotic car parking activities in the side road.

Peaceful, picturesque and full of genuine restaurants. Great views of Balluta Bay and a multitude of different people strolling by.

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 .

Lovely place to sit in the evening to people watch or with a glass of wine during the afternoon. Good selection of restaurants and coffee shops

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.
