5 Ways to Train by Yourself in Sliema
1. Go for a run on the promenade
The long stretch of seafront in Sliema is just perfect for an early morning run or jog. This nearly 10 KM promenade stretches from the town of Gzira on one side, down to St. Julians on the other end. The pavement is wide and the sea views can be spectacular.
2. Make use of the free gyms
Along this stretch known as The Strand there are several free, outdoor gyms, with features like pull-up bars and cycling machines. For those who want a more versatile workout, these are just what you need, and completely free to use.
3. Go swimming
The sea and beaches around Sliema are an attraction themselves. Swimming is a whole-body workout and can be a great idea for recovery. The infinite sea views in this area are stunning as well. The beaches are mostly rocky. The bathing season in Malta is between May and October, with the sea and outdoor conditions just right for swimming. Access to the sea is very easy thanks to multiple bathing ladders.
4. Explore Sliema
Sliema is a vibrant town and in many senses the tourist hub of the islands. There is so much to see around these traditional streets, lined with colourful Maltese balconies, historical residences and public buildings, churches and chapels… These make the Sliema streets a perfect spot for a power walk – another way to boost your workout!

5. Make use of the hotel's facilities
All the hotels that we offer in our packages have indoor pools that are free for guests. These are all decent sizes and are a fun, relaxing way to get some laps in. The 1926 Hotel & SPA and Preluna hotels also have their own gym facilities which are well equipped and conveniently located in the hotel buildings.
