My husband and I are looking at spending a week in Malta in late September.
I have read the reviews and it seems Mellieha has the beaches but very little to do, St Julians is like Faliraki and Sliema is more upmarket but with no beach.
Ideally I would like a hotel right on the beach or a 2 min walk away but with stuff to do in the evenings. Not interested in nightclubs just chilling out on a good sandy beach with plenty of time to enjoy the culture. Want plenty of shops, restaurants and bars open in the evening. Want to stay in a quiet location but with the life nearby.
Is there anywhere in Malta that fits the bill?
Great sandy beach
great hotel on or very near beach (not in the thick of the action but not in the sticks)
Bars, shops, evening activities nearby
