Photographer's Note

View along the promenade at Sliema, looking toward St Julian's.

Sliema is a town located on the northeast coast of Malta. It is a tourist centre for shopping, restaurants and café life. The town is also a major commercial and residential area and houses several quality hotels. Tas-Sliema, which means 'peace, comfort', was once a quiet fishing village on the peninsula across Marsamxett Harbour from Valletta. Now Sliema and the coastline up to neighbouring St. Julian's constitutes Malta's main coastal resort; as a result, Sliema has been ringed with modern apartment blocks and become engorged with traffic in recent decades causing protest from local residents.
