Getting Around Sliema
It’s easy to find Sliema from wherever you are. It is situated around an hour from the airport by car and about 20 minutes away from Valletta. Ferries also go from Sliema to Valletta and back every 30 minutes and this is certainly a nice way to travel to Valletta in the summertime. Buses to Sliema also regularly leave the bus terminal in Valletta. As Valletta is very much the bus hub , if you are travelling from other areas of the island it is likely that you will have to head into Valletta before getting another bus out to Sliema from there.
