Dangerous swimming in Sliema

 Went for a swim yesterday in Sliema and everything was calm as usual, even though Sunday’s and Public Holidays are probably the worst day to go to the beach since it’s packed… Later on we went further out towards Exiles and found some big waves and currents and was a bit surprised people was still out in the water.

Around all those rocky stones it looked very dangerous to swim, and it only took around a minute before a big wave washed four people off one of the rocks and into some shallow water with a lot of rocks. Obviously one girl came up with her leg all red and was in great pain.

I guess it could be much worse and it happened more than once that people died around these cliffs while taking a quick swim. Maybe there should be some further warning systems? Or should we just trust people to actually think before?
