Stroll along the path to Sliema or enjoy eating al-fresco in one of the many restaurants, including Hotel Juliani’s own seafront café Boat trips and hop-on hop-off buses are available from the bay making it a great central location for other trips and exploring the area. Don’t miss this beautiful bay at night, when the whole seafront comes alive. This is really a great place to be at the centre of it all. Hotel Juliani residents can enjoy the bay from their rooftop pool, giving unrivalled views across the area.
