As you make plans to head to Malta, and while putting a detailed itinerary together that will ensure you get the best possible experience of the island in the most pleasant and economical way possible, you are likely to come across St Julian’s among the top places of interests to visit, explore, and indulge in.
Indeed, this beautiful and bustling locality ranks among the most popular places for international visitors in Malta on Tripadvisor, and it’s not that difficult to see why.
The most obvious reasons for St Julian’s ongoing success as a tourist location lies in its ability to provide to the various leisure needs of various visitors. In other words, no matter where you come from or with which age group you associate yourself, chances are you’ll find something to enjoy – and at a regular pace, too! – in and around the St Julian’s locality.
You will most likely have seen Google and indeed Tripadvisor shots of the beautiful St Julian’s promenade walk. This is indeed the most readily available thing to enjoy about the locality, and it is indeed beautiful to behold and experience. A stretch that is dotted by plenty of amenities along the way – from bars and restaurants, to a shopping mall – it also notable as a transit destination to a number of interesting nearby places.
Having covered the stretch from the bustling central hub of St Julian’s – marked by McDonald’s and the ‘LOVE’ monument chief of all – and all along the bay, you would do well to catch your breath at the Balluta pjazza. Ringed with Judas trees and boasting a number of kiosks and cafes, it also makes for a wonderful breakfast spot thanks to a bona fide French patisserie situated just at its corner. It is framed by a can’t-miss-them block of beautiful art nouveau-style residences – the Balluta Buildings – which remain one of the most notable architectural structures on this part of the island.
To proceed to the nearby town of Sliema – one of Malta’s most popular and appealing shopping-and-sea locations – you can either turn the street up from the patisserie – making for a shorter if not all that picturesque walk past the location’s equivalent of an ‘old town’ – or proceed past the nearby Neo-Gothic church to continue your waterfront walk before reaching Sliema centre.
The ease of this walk also highlights another key feature of St Julian’s – aside from the rich restaurant selection and bustling nightlife, which you’ve doubtless heard about already – which is the fact that the location provides easy access to the rest of the island.
Apart from excellent bus connections from St Julian’s itself – with the nightlife hub of Paceville also making way for the most well-organised selection of nighttime buses on the islands during the weekend – the ease with which you can arrive to Sliema means that the island is pretty much at your fingertips.
After all, Sliema is just another short bus ride, or even shorter boat ride, to Valletta… Malta’s capital city, and a UNESCO world heritage site that should be seen by everyone at least once…
