Almost all of the Maltese bays have been certified with having a high quality of seawater during last year.
A report published by the European Environment Agency shows that Malta achieved second place in the list of the most good places for swimming with good water quality.
The report refers to the seawater samples gathered last year with which the quality of water was calculated. In Malta, the Environmental Health Directorate each week gathers samples from 87 sites which are good for swimming around the Maltese islands.
According to the European agency report, Malta has good quality seawater in 86 of the 87 sites. Luxembourg topped the list of European classification.
