Sliema, St Julian's and Paceville are adjacent to each other on the eastern coast of Malta, around 4 miles (7km) from Valletta. Together they comprise the fashionable residential areas, main coastal resort towns, top hotels, best shops and nightlife. However, there are no notable cultural attractions!

There is a delightful coastline walk from Sliema (Tower Road - IT-Torri) through to St Julian's leading to Paceville.

Sliema is a fashionable residential area popular with the Maltese, and also a popular place for tourists with many hotels, restaurants, cafes and shops. It has two waterfronts, one facing out to the Mediterranean Sea, and Marsamxett Harbour overlooking Valletta and Manoel Island, where you can take many Harbour cruises, and also hourly Sliema/Valletta Ferry from around 9am to 5pm, which takes around 5 minutes, but can be unreliable off season! There are no sandy beaches in Sliema, but there are some rocky beaches and lidos.

St Julian's used to be a sleepy fishing village, but is now a very popular resort centred around Spinola Bay.

Paceville is said to be the nightlife capital of Malta, although this is not noticeable until the evening. During the day the main attraction is the Bay Street entertainment complex. There is a small sandy beach at St George's Bay. Paceville is more suited to the young!!
