On the east coast of Malta, there’s scenic waterfront running between the capital of Valletta and Paceville. The route is a combination of sidewalk and dedicated seafront promenade, winding its way for nearly 13 km through Sliema, Pieta, Gazira, and St. Julian’s. Use our map as a guideline and generally follow the water around a series of bays and marinas. There are buses along the way — one could easily do this run one-way and bus back.
Starting at the ferry terminal in Valetta, head north. Some landmarks along the way:
2.5 km Gnien Il Park
4.7- 5.7 km Sliema Ferry and Pjazza Tigné (cool pedestrian bridge)
7.7 km Exiles Beach, Sliema. Wind around St. Julian’s Bay
9.5 km Love Monument
12.7 km Westin Dragonara/Casino
Add-On: More than 5 km of additional paths along the Valletta waterfront and a route through the Old City on our ‘runseeing’ tour.
- Up to 12.7 km (7.9 miles)
- Any point along promenade. South end is Valetta ferry terminal; North end is Dragonara Casono in Paceville. Spinola Bay is also a good starting point
- There are ferry terminals and bus stops along the way
