WhichBeach was an idea born out of necessity. In my youth I remember how some of us had the uncanny ability to check the weather report in the paper and then know which beaches would be ideal to go to that day. I never figured out how to do that, so years later I was lucky enough to partner with the talented Glenn Grech and André Schembri, and together we created an automated solution to this problem.
The core feature of the website is the beach scoring. We use weather APIs to automatically update the website every hour to give an accurate prediction of the conditions at every beach. Over time we expanded the website to allow all of Malta’s beaches to be better searched and explored, and to include more information per beach.
