9 beautiful beaches in Malta – Lonely Planet

The beaches in Malta tend to be dramatic, rocky and sea-sculpted, with fewer soft and sandy curves of Mediterranean coastline than you might expect. Despite this, the Maltese make the most of every swimming spot, and on these compact islands, water sports abound, and you’re never far from the sea.

With crystalline waters, historic wrecks, and interesting underwater formations, Malta is also Europe’s best diving destination, but even snorkeling from the island nation’s coastline offers a remarkable insight into an underwater world.

Whether you’re keen on splashing around in the waves, spending an afternoon relaxing on the sand, or enjoying a leisurely lunch of local seafood, here are the beaches to head to in Malta, and its smaller sister islands of Gozo and Comino.

Relaxing of COVID-19 rules in Malta

From Monday 11th April, the Covid-19 requirements upon entering Malta, are as follows:

A negative PCR test or rapid test valid to enter into Malta – According to the notice both the Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) and the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test will be accepted, although the latter can be done earlier. For RATs, the test has to be performed “not more than 24 hours prior to arrival in Malta”. Those opting for the PCR test, which in some countries is pricier and the result takes longer to come out, can do the test up to 72 hours before arriving in Malta. Guidelines published by the public health authorities explaining the legal notice state that the RAT tests must be ones that are included on a special list by the European Council. The result must also be in English, the authorities note. If unavailable in English, an English translation certified by the laboratory or a medical doctor is to be presented. RAT tests are not accepted unless on the EU digital COVID certificate format. Results from self-testing are not accepted. The passenger locator form, used for contact tracing purposes, will still be needed.

A recovery certificate permits entry to Malta – According to the legal notice, a certificate of recovery is accepted for 180 days after a person first tested positive for COVID-19.

Quarantine free – Individuals travelling from Red Countries who have recovered from COVID-19 within the past 180 days, or those who can present a negative PCR test (no older than 72 hours), will be allowed to enter the country quarantine-free.

David Cachia elected as new president of Malta Triathlon Federation

Davide Cachia has taken over at the helm of the Malta Triathlon Federation (MTF). He was elected as the new federation president following an Extraordinary General Meeting held earlier this month.

A successful entrepreneur working in the tourism industry, Cachia is also triathlete who has years of local and international competitive experience across all distances,  from Sprint to Ironman.

Cachia takes on the federation’s top spot after two challenging years that changed how sports was managed, perceived, and practiced mainly due to the implemented COVID-19 measures that saw the annual calendar of events drastically reduced.

Nevertheless, he still believes that there is a lot of untapped potential and the federation will be working closely with the rest of the seven affiliated clubs to work on a holistic development plan which aims to cater for the different segments that make up the sport.

“I believe sport to be a great outlet for people and that the clubs will continue to perpetuate the ideals of friendly sporting clubs – group of people of all ages who want to have fun, socialise and grow together as a team/club whilst enjoying the sport of triathlon,” Cachia said.

“The Malta Triathlon Federation would like to make a number of positive changes in the coming months,” he added, noting that the MTF is run entirely through volunteer support.

The federation, continued Cachia, is still committed to its vision of ensuring that all the various elements that make up the local triathlon community are giving the attention they deserve. This will span across the elite segment, youth athletes, and the rest of the dedicated athletes who never fail to be at the starting line of local races.

As the international triathlon circuit starts to open up, the federation hopes that local triathletes will once again be representing Malta and delivering the kind of results Maltese representatives have produced in the past.

Cachia emphasised that international participation is key for Maltese athletes to improve on their performances.

Academies are the future of the sport and Cachia pledged the federation’s support towards the consolidation of youth development programmes by providing as much support as is possible to create a long-term plan for the sport.

Colours of Malta client, JAFRA, donates 100 trees, shrubs to local school

While on an incentive trip to Malta, international skincare and beauty products company JAFRA Cosmetics chose a Ħamrun school to donate and plant 100 indigenous trees and shrubs propagated from local seeds, as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility strategy.

The tree-planting activity took place at the Guardian Angel Secondary Education Resource Centre on October 15.

During her speech, head of school Darlene Borg said that “these new shrubs and trees will be an asset for the school, whose environment is unique compared to the mainstream ones”.

The school, which forms part of St Ġorġ Preca College, hosts about 80 students with severe learning difficulties. Borg also mentioned that “apart from the environmental benefits, engaging in such social experiences is highly beneficial for the students, who are able to spend time with people outside of the school organisation”.

At the end of the activity, the students presented a commemorative plaque to JAFRA’s general director and the director of sales, together with clay tokens handmade by the students themselves, to every participant.

JAFRA was hosted by Colours of Malta, a local destination management company, while the coordination of the rural CSR activity was entrusted to social enterprise Merill Rural Network.

NGOs ACT and MaYA Foundation offered their expertise throughout the event.
