Sliema was originally used as a summer residence during the British Occupancy, with several Victorian houses running all around the coastline. Sliema developed into a residential area and later into probably the best commercial area in Malta. Nowadays, it is hard to spot any of the remaining Victorian houses, since they have mostly disappeared, to be replaced by up-market, high-rise residential apartments.
Sliema is popular with the locals for its wide array of café's and restaurants that are frequented for business or social meetings, and for the shopping of well-known brands. This locality offers the possibility to sit in the sun under palm-trees admiring a beautiful view of Valletta and Manoel island lying across Marsamxett Harbour. The walk along the Sliema Promenade all the way to St. Julian’s is also very popular as it offers open sea-views all the way. In Sliema you can also take a swim in the deep, crystal clear waters at one of its rocky beaches.
