Sliema is one of the most touristic hotspots all year round but, in summer, it adds swimming and sunbathing to its long list of entertainment on offer. The sea here is beautiful, normally safe to swim in all year round unless it's extremely windy.
The beaches here are very close to all amenities making it ideal for a quick dip after a morning of shopping or lunch in one of Siema’s cafes and restaurants. The coastline in this area is mostly rocky and stretches from the area known as Qui-si-Sana all the way to St. Julian's. The beaches here are easily accessible. Steps and handrails have been installed so make reaching the beaches easier.
