What’s the first image that springs to mind when you think of Malta? For most, it’s the idyllic beaches.
The island’s glittering coasts are a summer staple for locals and tourists alike – and of course, there are some stereotypes that come with the territory.
Here are seven people you’re bound to see hitting up any Maltese beach.
1. The Kid Wrestler
When the summer sun is out, mothers with their kids will be planted on Malta’s beaches.
They’re absolutely easy to spot, trodding down with 1,000 bags of goodies and a few feral kids eager for sandcastles and ice cream.
These are true summer heroes: mothers, wrestling screaming kids in and out of their swimsuits, and giving in to an ice cream or three to keep them quiet for at least five minutes of peace.
Amid the wrestling chaos (mothers should all audition for WWE), is the arduous task of slapping on a good dollop of sunscreen. Using a wet skin spray will save these super mummies time before another dip in the sea. Just spray and go!
2. The Insta Baes
The influencer: the ever-important 21st-century figure of any local hot spot.
In between the 200-picture photoshoot they should think about their money-making skin and invest in some luxuriously velvet sunscreen.
This brand’s velvet range uses technology that makes you feel like the sunscreen is a second skin and can also come in tints for a perfect complexion. Fabulous!
3. The Seasoned Surfer
Ok – Malta isn’t exactly Byron Bay, but its coasts do see a regular crowd of surfers riding some gnarly waves in winter and summer.
These beach hotties are usually the first and last out of the water (perfect for lazy spectators looking for aquatic eye candy). And though they’re constantly perched in the water doesn’t mean they shouldn’t protect themselves – and an invisible sunscreen spray will do just that.
4. The Anti-Sunscreener
“I’m Maltese, I don’t need sunscreen, my skin is used to the sun,” said every sunburnt person at the beach ever.
You know about anti-vaxxers, but let me get you acquainted with the anti-sunscreener.
Tourists and locals alike: this breed of human is found on all beaches and are (ironically) spotted through their lobster-red skin. But news flash – we all need sunscreen to keep burns at bay, baby! So, if your skin is on show (and that goes for bald heads too), pour on that anti-sun goodness.
5. The Eco Warrior
These people are a relatively new group to hit the beach. You know them, that eco-friendly friend or aunt who seems like they’ve got it all figured out. Food? Vegan. Clothes? Ethically sourced. Plastic straws? Blasphemy. Hell, even their beach towel is made from recycled fabrics.
Lucky for them, Frezyderm’s range is entirely vegan, so they can still keep the skin damage at bay whilst protecting the environment. It’s a win-win!
6. The Golden Girls
No Maltese beach is complete without its very own Nanna edition of Golden Girls. Adorned in swimsuits straight out of a 1960’s magazine, these ladies are having the time of their lives: playing bridge, laughing and gossiping about you and everyone you know.
Ok, sunscreen wasn’t as fashionable in their days, but these nannas know that crispy skin should be kept for timpana and pastizzi, not flesh. Keep doing you girls!
7. The PDA Pair
Everyone hates them and wants to be them at the same time. That couple at the beach that everyone can’t stop looking at (except the wrestling mother and photo-hungry influencer of course), because they’re literally can’t keep their hands off of each other.
Public displays of affection in the sun don’t mean you shouldn’t protect each other, and with Frezyderm’s waterproof feature, you can rub up against each other without the risk of it rubbing off with sweat – sexy AF.
