Sightseeing, Music, Concerts, Nightlife & More The Mellieha area where we’re located boasts a combination of scenic and peaceful private seclusion, and is simultaneously not more than 30 minutes away from the major touristic landmarks of Malta. You will always find something going on here: from big-name artist concerts to traditional festivities. Music concerts by world-class artists: The musical scene here is interesting and diverse. Malta is fast developing in to a world class music destination, hosting the Isle of MTV annual concert with names ranging from Lady Gaga to Snoop Dogg, and events such as the Malta Jazz Festival where some of the biggest names from the genre converge in a superb setting by the harbour. Local village events & festas. Each summer, several local councils organise cultural events that often focus on a particular theme that relate to the particular village. Each parish also celebrates its own saint, with colourful religious processions, local brass bands touring the streets, and impressive displays of fireworks. Sightseeing. Malta is positively packed with history. Within a few square kilometers, you can journey thousands of years: from prehistoric times at the Ghar Dalam cave to the age of British colonialism at the War Museum. In between, discover amazing iconography and architecture instituted by the cultures that have left their impression on these islands over the centuries: from the Roman remains near Rabat to the Grand Master’s Palace in the baroque capital city, Valletta. Tour the beaches. In between sightseeing trips, enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean, with plenty of opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, scuba-diving and water-sports around the island. Malta and Gozo boast both sandy and rocky beaches all around the long coastline, which means you will always have a different experience. Nightlife. Whether you’re up for a pint at the pub or a night of letting loose on the dance floor, you will not be disappointed. International DJ artists frequently grace the islands, drawing thousands of party goers to the the larger clubs. Paceville, the nightlife district, offers everything from bar to share a drink with friends, a variety of restaurants for dining, as well as several nightclubs. Sailing. Summer sees the sea around the islands sparkle with life. Comino, especially, offers a magnificent sailing experience where you can always find a cozy inlet where to lower your anchor and while the day away snorkelling, diving and having fun. If you’re new to this activity, we recommend simply hiring an experienced captain before going out. Rock Climbing. For those looking for exhilaration, the coastline offers several cliffs to scale while the landscape features picturesque valleys with solid limestone sides. Rock climbing can be experienced throughout the whole year due to mild temperatures. The various climbing areas are reached easily, never being further than 30 minutes away from the Resort. Cinema & Shopping The urban centres of St. Julians and Sliema as well as Bugibba offer a myriad of diversions for the whole family and are ideal trips for an afternoon. Catching a late morning movie at one of the highly modern cinemas in the area can be followed by simply strolling down the seafront with an ice cream (or a hot chocolate in winter) while taking in the sights. You will also find large shopping centres across these areas where you can acquire reknowned brands. Walking. We’re situated in Malta’s northern region, which is characterised by swathes of countryside and cultivated land. There are several trails to follow and on which to throw a picnic, including the Victoria Lines, the small woodland known as Buskett, or the footpaths in the Majjistral Heritage Park. Even if you don’t feel like venturing out, being so close to both extensive countryside and Malta’s biggest and most popular sandy beach, staying at Seabank definitely offers a variety of attractions, entertainment, and enjoyable casual dining experiences.
