Whether you’re buying souveniers, gifts, or a little something for you, every holiday needs some shopping time! Here we take our pick of Malta’s best shopping streets – and they’re all very easy to get to!
Republic Street, Valletta
This is the capital’s main shopping road and it runs from the main bus terminus and new Parliament building all the way down to the city ring road. The main section is home to a variety international high street fashion, cosmetics and homeware shops.
Merchants’ Street, Valletta
This completely pedestrianised street is also a good option for fashion items and accessories. While there, look out for Camilleri’s sweet shop, one of the oldest confectionery stores on the island.
Sta Lucia Street, Valletta
Running at a 90-degree angle along both Republic and Merchants Street, this alley is home to a cluster of quality jewellery stores at one end, and Valletta’s largest shopping complex, the Embassy, further along it.
Bisazza Street, Sliema
Recently pedestriansed, this road is lined with numerous international brands from Italy and the UK. It is also the entrance way to the Plaza, which is Malta’s oldest mall.
Tigne Road, Sliema
This road leads towards The Point, the island’s largest shopping centre. Stop by here for a range of high-end and designer brands, as well as the chance to discover a few locals ones too. It’s also home to Costa Coffee, one of Malta’s best coffee shops (according to us!)
Malta’s little sister island also had some good shopping options. The main road leading up to Victoria is home to the Arkadia shopping mall, as well as the daily It-Tokk market, which is an excellent spot for buying souvenirs.
If you’re looking for a centrally-located hotel Malta, the Radisson Blu Resort, St. Julian’s is a great option that’s well-connected to all these shopping streets and many more places worth visiting around the Islands!
