Around the Island with Claire Bonello
Here are Claire’s suggestions for great family outings.
Sightseeing: ‘One of my favourite places is the Chinese Garden in Santa Lucija. The children are fascinated by the set-up and the Oriental décor and there’s a lovely lawn to play on. The garden is closed off to traffic and children can be monitored at all times making it safe.’
Eating Out: ‘A very convenient place to grab a pizza or good salad is Amigos in Sliema. Besides serving excellent food, the atmosphere is laid-back and casual making it kid-friendly.’
Days Out: ‘The recently-opened Ta Qali Adventure Park makes a great day out as there are loads of different swings, climbing frames and water features to keep my children occupied
