Sun's Out! Malta Officially Offers 3rd Best Water Quality For Swimming In Europe 🏖☀️

Exams are coming to an end (unless you're an A-level student 👀), and yet another warm Maltese summer is on the horizon. For those among you who have already had your first swim of the year, and for those who haven't braved the cold water yet, you'll be relieved to find out that Malta officially offers some of the best water quality in the EU.

Malta boasts a brilliant 97.7% score, placing it 3rd in the European Union for bathing water quality according to the European Environment Agency's report. Falling just behind Austria (98.5%) and Cyprus (99.1%), our little island is one of the leaders when it comes to swimming in clean, safe waters 🤩

A total of 21,981 bathing waters were reported across the European Union in 2019, with the most being found in Italy (5,535) and the least being found in land-locked Luxembourg (17). Malta offers 87 sites of bathing water.
