After some strong winds and sea currents, Malta’s beaches are looking completely safe to swim in for today and the upcoming weekend.

The local weather page, ‘Maltese Islands Weather’ has deemed that 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, St. Thomas Bay, Ġnejna Bay, Golden Bay, Paradise Bay, Wied il-Għasri, Xwejni Bay, Qbajjar, Marsalforn, Ramla l-Ħamra, San Blas Bay, Daħlet Qorrot, Xlendi and Dwejra’s Inland Sea are all safe to swim at.

However, even though the majority of the beaches are perfect for a quick refreshing dip, there are still some that have unfortunately been marked as unsafe.

The unsafe beaches are Ħofriet, Marsaxlokk, Pretty Bay, Wied iż-Żurrieq, Għar Lapsi, Fomm ir-Riħ, Għajn Tuffieħa, Anchor Bay, Ħondoq ir-Rummien, Mġarr ix-Xini and Dwejra.
