Sliema is a major tourism spot on the northeastern coast of the beautiful island of Malta. Visitors here will find an abundance of relaxing holiday activities available, as well as restaurants, shopping and nightlife. In recent years the town has experienced significant growth, with modern villas and apartments abounding as well as one of Malta’s best hotels.
Visitors can therefore enjoy fine shopping and dining as part of their stay here. There is also plentiful opportunity for relaxing beach activities such as an idyllic cruse, or water sports such as snorkeling and diving.
Another draw-card for those interested in architecture and history is the Stella Maris Church, otherwise known as the Mother Parish Church of Tas-Selima, which dates from 1878. Initially approved for construction under the condition that it was dedicated to the apostle Paul, locals pushed to have it dedicated to their adopted patroness ‘Our Lady Star of the Sea,’ and so it was.
