    Electricity & Plugs in Malta

    by globetrott Written Dec 2, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Electricity in Malta has 220 Volt, but the plug might be different from the one that you use in your homecountry and so it will be the best to take an adaptor-plug with you, because even the big hotels obviously dont have a single plug in the rooms for the ordinary plugs of Europe.
    Charging your batteries etc. will only be possible when you have the right adaptor like in my photo

    Need a Lilo?

    by joanj Written Nov 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As there are no beaches to speak of in Sliema, the locals (and hardy visitors) sunbathe on the rocks below the promenade.

    If I were you I would take a lilo or something to cushion the hardness of the rock. There are small ladders that you can climb from some of the rocks into the sea.

    Beware there are no lifeguards, so do ask the locals regarding the depth etc of the water.

    Be vigilant and aware.

    We walked to the sea front at Sliema when everyone seemed to go mental shouting and beeping horns people got on top of cars and danced, I didn't know what was going on so I asked and England had just won a game in the world cup.
    It made me feel proud to be English to see the Maltese people backing England so much.

    wonderful moment

    Kinnie is the soft drink of choice here – or it should be, don’t buy the Coca-Cola company’s rival Krest – and sitting on the seawall with Valletta behind you is as good a place to drink it as any!
    Kinnie is made from “bitter oranges and herbs” to quote the label, but I’d never have guessed it as it doesn’t really taste of oranges. It is quite unique though and very refreshing.

    Enjoying A Kinnie, Sliema

    Walking on Sliema Promenade (Front)

    by Elly01 Written Dec 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking on the Sliema Promenade (Front as the locals call it) is a custom especially when the summer months are approaching it seems that everyone gets their feet on the front to walk up and down in order to keep fit! It's a very pleasant and nice walk as it is along the seaside and commences from St.Julians and ends in Gzira which is a nice stretch of good continous walking. One drawback is that you meet so many people that its hard to walk at times especially those people who like jogging !
