Abstract: Maltese beaches on a Sunday afternoon are not renowned for their languor. Rather, they are associated with overcrowded conditions, cacophony and encroachments of all sorts. As has been documented in this column over the years, each year more nails are driven into the coffin, with more beaches being taken over by boisterous hordes who have no grasp of what constitutes good neighbourliness. Last Sunday, a visit to Ramla l-─Žamra for a peaceful swim was frustrated by throbbing music at decibels unacceptable to anyone in their right mind, let alone to young children. The noise pollution was spilling onto the beach from the nearby kiosks, courtesy of the umpteenth party. In this case it was the Sunscape Festival 2015, which was held at the beach over three full days. The music played on till 2am the following morning.
