Malta Swimming Zones

Swimming Holiday, Climate Of Malta, Beach And Sun,
Gozo Swimming, Fun In Malta

Updated 15th July 2019

Malta swimming zones have been created to safeguard swimmers and to ensure that you are able to enjoy your swim in a safe enclosed area free of any type of motorized watercraft.

Swimming zones are demarcated around mid June and are valid up to end September every year. This list will help you know where they are, thus enabling you to enjoy your holiday safely.

In certain bays for the safety of swimmers, nets and buoys are marked so speedboats and large boats cannot enter the bay within that line, ensuring that swimmers enjoy a relaxing memorable day.

Currently there are 611 cases, 485 recoveries and 7 deaths in Malta
