Three Bedroom Penthouse on the Eighth Floor
Gzira means "island" in Maltese and this small town is named after Manoel Island, which lies just next to it. From its seafront, there are views of the walled capital city of Valletta, which are illuminated at night. Gzira is also known for the yacht marina and is popular with people working in Sliema who would rather not pay the high prices there for housing.
Please note that the image above is of the area, not of this apartment or its views.

Gżira is an urban locality between Sliema and Msida on the western side of Marsamxett Harbour. It has a seafront promenade with views over Manoel Island to Valletta.
Gżira strand provides the only landward access to Manoel Island. This small island lies in Marsamxett Harbour between Sliema Creek and Lazzaretto Creek. At its tip can be found Fort Manoel, built in 1726 by Grand Master Manoel de Vilhena. The fort was badly damaged in World War II but has recently been restored as part of the development of the Manoel Island and nearby Tigne' as a residential and commercial area.
Gżira shops include numerous yacht brokers and chandlers which serve the nearby Ta' Xbiex and Msida Marinas. It is walking distance to St Julian's and Sliema, and as such has recently attracted a number of young professionals who work in those towns. There has been a great deal of development in Gżira in recent years, with many of the old terraced houses being converted to apartment blocks or offices. Properties are generally priced above average.
