Whether you’re in an office blasting that air conditioning or at home trying to find the coolest spot in the building, there’s nothing like a dip in the sea to cool you off. 

With the sea temperature currently sitting at 24°C to 25°C, getting a quick dip might just be the best way to get through this weekend’s heat wave.

Luckily, the Maltese Islands Weather page has taken the initiative to list down the best beaches to visit today.
