Malta Swimming Zones

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

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.

For 2015 one additional area has been added. This is Delimara St. Peter's Pool. The areas reserved for swimmers will be indicated by coloured marker buoys and ropes.

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.

Malta swimming zones are very easily visible at these beaches so be on the lookout. Your safety is important and swim safely during your holiday in Malta.

The information provided here has been released by Transport Malta last 26th June.
