Luqa: City Hotels and Accommodation
Malta is a small and densely populated island, actively promoting tourism and containing a large number of notable hotels. Many of the most desirable hotels line the island's beautiful coastline, overlooking the surrounding Mediterranean Sea and glorious stretches of sand, particularly in the Golden Bay area. Accommodation is most plentiful around Malta's main resorts as follows.
Valletta lies on the northern side of Malta and is an important city with many historic attractions. Hotels in Valletta are often situated close to the Grand Harbour and the Marsamxett Harbour, which lie either side of the peninsula. Regularly attracting more than one million visitors each year, this part of Malta is always busy and hotels often become fully booked.
By far the largest resort on the whole of Malta, the town of Sliema is situated close to Valletta and enjoys an equally appealing coastal setting. Accommodation both in and around Sliema is within easy reach of the shoreline and marinas, with numerous high-rise, glass-fronted hotels and other buildings dominating the skyline and the main waterfront area.
St. Julians is situated next to Sliema and is a former fishing village. Many hotels are centred around the charming Spinola Bay, which is known throughout Malta for its historic arched boathouses and nearby 17th-century palace.
