This compact guide presents the results of applying the innovative BARE (Bathing Area Registration and Evaluation) technique to a total of 25 beaches in Ragusa (South-East Sicily) and the Maltese Islands, and was published as part of Project MaSpi, an 18-month EU-funded pilot project that was implemented within the INTERREG IIIA Italia-Malta Programme.

The project team surveyed a broad selection of beach types, from resorts to remote beaches, resulting in a guidebook that caters to the whole spectrum of different beach users - from families with young children who might be looking for an easily accessible beach with a wide choice of facilities to nature lovers who are prepared to hike considerable distances to reach an isolated beach with few or no facilities but enjoying serene and unspoilt surroundings. The descriptions of each beach and its surrounding area include details of the safety features, water quality, and the recreational, sanitary and catering facilities present. A summary of the BARE quality ratings, based on the five basic parameters of safety, water quality, facilities, scenery and cleanliness, is also provided for all the beaches featured.

Copies of this book are available from the Institute free of charge; please contact us for an estimate of overseas postage and packing.
