Thinking of making the week out of this, might stay up around Għadira Bay and kick back early in the week, do a bit of sightseeing and holiday craic then just taxi in to paceville the night before and on game day, only 30 minutes in a taxi probably cost feck all.

Was having a look today, maybe thinking of Sliema. Quick ferry across to Valletta, and down the road from St Julian's, if I wanted to me some of the lads for a late drink.
Haven't really decided yet, but might go for an apartment.

Gutted I'll have to miss this. On holiday for fortnight from Nov 20, but booked week in Spain (out on the Tues) to coincide with World Cup, so I could watch games in some heat. Malta my first away in 1999, and have been back since. Great spot, small and compact. Valetta well worth a day trip to.

That didn't take long! LOL

Booked myself there, on the edge of Sliema/St Julian's.  Definitely going Valletta for a day, and probably will head to Gozo too.  Loads of history and the like to see.  The missus says the scuba diving is great around there, if that's your thing.

Remember to stick your wallet in your shoes when snorkeling  , pickpockets will never look there

Valletta is a nice spot, up market little square/peninsula with lots of restaurants etc. 
The ferry from Sliema to Valletta is nice also. 

The air raid shelter in Mellieha at the other end of the island is a good visit also, based on WWII. Some nice views from the sea view cafe beside it. 

A lovely sunny island! Heavily populated with multi story apartments. Enjoy everyone who goes!

Lascaris War Rooms in Valetta is a must.

What's everyone thinking accomodation wise in St Julians? Looks like a great selection at the prices

Plenty of options eitherside of Paceville, last time I stayed in the BeHotel which was great this time I've booked something on the other side of Paceville. Look on maps for stuff near to the long haul pub and you won't be far wrong.
 

time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

I’ve never been to Malta before but I’ve got that BeHotel booked for this trip. Seems central enough so can’t be too bad I suppose.
