A boat trip to Comino

With an area of just 3.5 square kilometres, Comino can easily be overlooked.

We strongly recommend a visit to this small but charming island which is just a short boat ride away from Malta or Gozo. Although the island is largely uninhabited, in summer it’s one of the busiest hotspots as people flock to Comino to swim in the crystal clear waters of the Blue Lagoon. The island’s most prominent building is St Mary’s tower, which dates back to 1618 and was built by Grand Master de Wignacourt. The tower doubled as the Chateau d’If in the film The Count of Monte Cristo.
