The newly-installed sandy beach at Balluta Bay suffered extensive damage during last night’s heavy rainfall.

Video footage shows water gushing out of storm drains and onto the beach and large amounts of sand carried away into the sea. In fact, the beach now has wide gaps where the sand once stood.

The 20-metre beach was replenished with sand this summer and opened to the public last month as part of a government project to restore old beaches. However, concerns over the beach’s longevity arose only a few days after its opening, with several people warning a thunderstorm had eaten away large tracts of sand.

Back then, the Tourism Ministry played down concerns and said the beach was simply forming its natural slope.
