It is great news to read that Malta has the second best bathing waters in the EU. We always comment on how lucky we are out here having such beautifully blue and clean sea. Having said that in the middle of August, after weeks of a very still sea with little current, the clarity is certainly not at its best, but that cannot be helped. I would hate to go swimming off the crowded sandy beaches in the middle of summer. Nevertheless, it only needs a day of strong wind and the day after there is a noticeable difference in the clarity of the water.
