Malta Swimming Zones

be on the lookout for swimming safety

Date Last Updated: 2nd August 2020

They have created Malta swimming zones 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.


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