According to Maltese Islands Weather only St. Thomas Bay, Ħofriet, Marsaxlokk, Pretty Bay, Wied iż-Żurrieq, Għar Lapsi, Golden Bay, Anchor Bay, Paradise Bay, Ħondoq ir-Rummien, Mġarr ix-Xini, Xlendi and Dwejra’s Inland Sea are safe to swim in.

Whereas Malta Islands Weather are advising to avoid Marfa, Ramla l-Bir, Little Armier, Armier Bay, Mellieħa, Imġiebaħ, Mistra Bay, St. Paul's Bay, Qawra, Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq, St. George's Bay, Sliema, Rinella Bay, Marsaskala, Fomm ir-Riħ, Ġnejna Bay, Għajn Tuffieħa, Wied il-Għasri, Xwejni Bay, Qbajjar, Marsalforn, Ramla l-Ħamra, San Blas Bay, Daħlet Qorrot and Dwejra.
