so much to do... beach, party, eat and drink... go to Paradise exiles in sliema for food and good night life ;)
First of all I think you should get an overall picture of Malta. Many foreigners reside in Sliema or St.Julians and since these are particulary hectic areas with lots of shops and cafe's they ignore the rest of the Island.

Now to answer your question. In the evening you should go to Paceville which is the entertainment centre of Malta. It's about 30minutes walk from Sliema.

Places of interest around Malta include:

Valletta (Administrative and Retail centre)
St.John's cathedral in Valletta.

Hagar Qim Temples, Mnajdra Temples,

Go to some local feast. They are all very similar with lots of fireworks.

Gozo - our sister island. I`m sure you can get lots of information on where to go there.

Comino - Small island ad natural reserve (yet there is a hotel there).
Since July is a hot month you should visit our top beaches:
1. Ghadire, Mellieha
2. Golden Bay
3. Ramlea, Gozo
4. Pretty Bay, Birzebbugia

Places of interest:
1. Temples of Hagar Qim, Mnajdra, Hypogium
2. Valletta, the capital city
3. Grandmasters Palace, in Valletta
4. Mdina, the silent city
5. Gozo, another island
6. Comino
7. Blue Lagoon
8. Blue Grotto

Restaurant in and around Sliema:
Mamma Mia, Ta Xbiex
McDonalds, Plaza, Sliema
Il-Meril, Sliema
De Giorgio, Sliema
TGI Friday's
Ta' Kolina, Sliema
Grenadier Grill, Sliema
Plough an Anchor, St. Julian
Vino Veritas restaurant
Pizza Express
Quayside Restaurant
Times Square Restaurant
La Stampa Restaurant
Italiannis Restaurant
Mariannas Tex Mex
Ponte Vecchio Restaurant

GOING OUT IN THE EVENINGS:
1. Pubs around the coast
2. Paceville for bowling, discos, pubs, cinema
3. Valletta, restaurants, cinema, theatre
Much depends on your age and interests. If you are young, you are in the heart of the most exciting part of Malta. Sliema is full of people, restaurants and cafes. Along the coast (a 40 minute walk or catch the regular buses) you have St. Julians (lots of restaurants and bars) and Paceville (the centre of nightlife). If you are in your 20's, you will have fun in Paceville, but a lot of (very) young people go there at the weekend. For beaches, your nearest is St. Georges Bay, just past Paceville. The sand is not natural sand and it is full of young students in July, which may be what you want. Further afield, try Mellieha Bay (biggest beach and very crowded), Golden Bay, Paradise Bay and Armier Bay, all in the north. In the south, Pretty Bay in Birzebugia is much less crowded with nice soft sand. The view is not very nice as there is a container port nearby, but the water looks like you are in Barbados.
For restaurants it depends on your price range. Cheapest are the fast food places (the usual Pizza Hut, McDonalds etc). Reasonable prices can be found at La Cuccagna in Sliema (best pizza in Malta) and The Avenue/Valentinos in Paceville. For a truly excellent meal that won't break the bank try Tal Kazin in St. Julians Bay (near Paceville). It's in the old band club. For days out, try Gozo and Comino. An open-top bus tour is good and there are lots of cruises around the harbour. If you are in to sub-aqua, there are lots of diving schools around. Enjoy your stay. It will be HOT in July.
Well if its for the evenings if you walk along the fantastic promanade you will be spoilt for choice as regards restaurants.You can choose either of the 3 waterpolo clubs restaurants,Peppis,surfside the tower or go to one of the many other more posh restaurants situated in various side streets of Sliema or at the ferries.You can even walk accross the promanade to St.Julians and Paceville,the center of the night life which is also packed with restaurants and bars,and after dinner have a great time in one of the clubs there.
But do not neglect the historic sites in Malta and off course a trip to the sister island of GOZO.

Well,
What to see, Malta is really beautiful island and Sliema is the way of many buses road, so you can go everywhere from there. In Sliema, there is the Balluta bay with the church, until Spinola bay.. There is a nice promenade, lighted with several restaurants or pubs. From the center of Sliema you can see Valetta, and go there by bus or with the boat.. which will make you land from down to valetta not far from Lower Baraka Garden. From Valetta there is the Buses's Terminal and Departure, to go in the south or in the north!
South >
Bus n°39 Zurrieq - Blue grotto, you can go on foot (by the promenade) or by bus (same but in the opposite side or bus n°94) to the temple (Hagar Qim, Mnajdra).
Bus n°27 Marsaxlokk - Sunday Market, note to go the morning, to find fresh fish. Otherwise the market is activ all day, and there is some restaurant with sea food around. You can visit the church.
West >
Bus n°80 Mdina, the old city.. There is a café "Fontanella", its a bit expensive but their cake are very delicious.
North >
Bus n°53, 57 Mosta, Old church which you have to visit! Its very big and so beautiful with lots of emotion inside.
You have to discover Valetta

Where to eat, in St Julians there is the cheapest restaurant i know for the food quality, its call "The Avenue". In St julians you have "Paparazzi" for good food.
In sliema, there is Vecchia Napoli and Frescos, very good and good price, in the center there is this maltese restaurant "Tal-Kris" with nice choice of wine.
In the 3 cities, there is many nice restaurants with nice choice of wine and cheese.

To go out, there is Paceville.. near St julians, its the district where everyone goes. You can also find in Valetta Waterfront nice atmosphere to eat and go out after.
In Sliema close to the sea, you have Exile and Surfside.

Hope to have answer to your request,
See you
what kind of things do you like? Are you looking for cheap and cheerful or can you afford the best :-) ?
The Maltese Islands are not very large, which makes getting around relatively trouble-free.

The public bus service on Malta and Gozo is a good way to get around as buses serve the major tourist areas, go practically everywhere and are cheap and efficient. The cost of a bus route ranges from €0.35 to €0.58 and the longest bus journey takes about fifty minutes; the average ride is between twenty and thirty minutes

Renting a car is a good option if you want to get to the farther reaches of the island. All the road signs are in English and driving is on the left.

Major and local car hires are located on Malta and Gozo with daily rates of €16 - €28. International and national driving licenses are acceptable. A number of internationally based car hiring firms as well as local garages also offer the services of chauffeur-driven cars.

Renting scooters, motorbikes or mountain bicycles is an option, but travel this way can be somewhat limited as not all roads are two-wheel vehicle friendly.

The white taxi service can pick up passengers from anywhere, except bus-stops. Taxi services from the Malta International Airport and the Seaport Terminal to all localities in Malta are based on a fixed tariff. For more information on taxi rates click here.

A regular ferry service links Malta to Gozo, taking about 20 minutes each way. A sea plane service links Grand Harbour in Valletta to Mgarr Harbour in Gozo. There are also regular boat services between each island and Comino.

A water taxi service using traditional Maltese 'dghajsa' boats is also available in Grand Harbour.

Sliema is full of exciting restuarants to eat out. Most of your problems have been solved by other replies .. so i simply wish to hope you the best ever holiday .. July is gonna be a hot one so drink alot of water and use high sun protection :)
Hi,

I am pleased to hear you chose Malta as your Holiday destination. Sliema is in the heart of a touristic area.

In sliema you will find all the following;

Swimming: The whole stretch from Sliema to St. Julians( Rocky Beach)

Shopping: Malta's best shops selling designer wear are located in the centre of Sliema.

Sliema Ferry: Do catch a Harbour cruise, the price is €16.00 per person for a 2 hour cruise around Malta's Harbour visiting 10 creeks. Also from the Sliema front you will find a Hop on Hop Off bus which will take you either to the North or to the South of Malta. (Tickets for the above are available with a discount when booking through .

Dining: I would suggest Cuccagna fo pizza & pasta, Ta' Kolina together with Ta' Kris for Local food. Dal Capo & Mimi for fine dining.

Coffee Shops: Giorgio or Cara's

Nightlife: Best is you go to the next village Paceville(The heart of clubs & bars)

Cruises: Do spare one day and catch a boat from the Sliema ferries to take you to the Blue Lagoon (All details are found on )

I hope the above is to your satisfaction, should you be interested in any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me on .

Regards,

James
