Abstract: Together with two Sicilian partners, the Regional Province of Ragusa and CoP AI, a consortium dedicated to the promotion of the lblean area, ICoD carried out a range of activities aimed at identifying an appropriate beach management strategy for the sustainable use of beaches in both Sicily and Malta. Key among these activities was an extensive programme of fieldwork. during which an innovative system for beach quality evaluation and management. the BARE technique developed by Dr Anton Mlcallef, ICoD, University of Malta and Prof Allan T Willlams, University of Wales was applied at selected bathing areas in both locations. This publication presents the results of applying the BARE (Bathing Area Registration and Evaluation) technique to 25 beaches in total - 19 In Sicily and 6 In the Maltese Islands. By Including examples from a wide range of different types of beach, from resorts to remote beaches, this book Is intended to serve as a guide for the whole spectrum of different beach users, ranging from families with young children who might be looking for an easily accessible beach having a range 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.
