Situated between Malta and Gozo, the smaller island of Comino is a paradise for snorkelers, divers, windsurfers and ramblers, and of course, holidaymakers. At just 3.5 square kilometres, Comino is car-free and apart from one hotel, is virtually uninhabited. As a result of this, the whole island is a complete picture of paradise. The island's main attraction is the Blue Lagoon. In summer, this sheltered inlet of glistening blue water over white sand is very popular with day-trippers. A trip here isn’t complete without it.

Comino is also worth a visit in winter, and is ideal for walkers and photographers alike. With no urban areas or cars on the island, you can easily smell the scent of wild thyme and other herbs. Named after the plentiful cumin that grows on the island, Comino is thick with wild herbs and flowers, and the entire island is classified as a wildlife sanctuary nowadays. There are parts of the island that are more like a rocky wilderness with jagged cliffs, two small sandy beaches, coves, creeks and a coastline dotted with deep caves. It’s an adventurer’s paradise. The island offers a complete change of pace from the neighbouring islands of Malta and Gozo and is a great place to go for a peaceful, relaxing holiday in 2020.

As the undisputed number one attraction of the island, Blue Lagoon is a source of much interest from travellers all over the world. The waters are crystal-clear, although you wouldn’t know it as they reflect the clear blue sky perfectly to give you an azure dream laid out in front of you. With pure white sand on the bottom of the sea, it’s a lovely environment to swim in no matter your age. The lagoon is warm and shallow and there are a number of tourist boats all around, which just shows you how popular it is year-round.

For history buffs visiting there is Saint Mary’s Tower, a large bastioned watchtower which was built all the way back in 1618. This prominent landmark can be seen from both Malta and Gozo, as well as from ferries travelling between them. Originally built to defend the island from surrounding forces, the site is now a major tourist attraction is open to view it in all its splendour on most days. A big draw within the site is the musketry gallery and it has even been the site of some major Hollywood movies like The Count of Monte Cristo in 2002.  For other attractions there are a number of active happenings on offer, but more on those later.

Beaches

Beaches

The Blue Lagoon is one of the best beaches in Malta, and it is a huge plus point for all tourists in Comino. The long and narrow bay is surrounded by rocks and its waters are of a nice depth, while being incredibly inviting temperature-wise. This makes it the ideal place for swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving or simply relaxing on the beach. If you have children, they can play safely in the warm shallow lagoon while the family enjoys the Maltese sun. Another fun day on the sands consists of practicing one of the many water sports on offer inside the lagoon, and there is even water-skiing in the deeper waters nearby. Visited by tourist boats the whole day long, the Blue Lagoon is relatively empty at night. Like St. Mary’s tower before it, Blue Lagoon is also a favoured location for filming, with such productions as the mini-series Helen of Troy and the film Swept Away being filmed here.
