Ranked Second in Europe for Best Beaches in Malta

Beaches | 0 min read |

A report by the European Environment Agency talks about ‘excellent’ quality in almost all of Malta’s Beaches.

Not only has Malta got the best-looking beaches but 86 out of 87 beaches were given the top ‘excellent’ ranking in a recent report issued by the European Environment Agency report. The one beach that did not rank as excellent, ranked one level below and is still above the minimum quality requirements.

In 2018, Malta’s beaches received a 98.9% excellent rating and this had been unchanged for over three years. This makes Malta the second highest in Europe when it comes to excellent quality beaches, only behind Cyprus.
