With the temperature outside feeling like a scorching 36°C, everyone on the Maltese islands is craving a refreshing jump in the sea after a week’s worth of work. 

Local weather page Maltese Islands Weather took to social media to inform its readers of the best bays around Malta and Gozo to visit today, Friday 29th July. 

This helps avoid the heartbreaking moment of getting to a bay and it being too wavy to swim, or worse yet, finding it infested with jellies!
