Malta

Waterfront Promenade: Valletta-Sliema-St. Julian’s

Creative Commons: FrankBothe

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.
