your idea of a perfect holiday destination is a tranquil hidden
paradise, then Comino tours are a must to take. Comino is a little
island, only 2 square kilometers in area, found between the islands
of Malta and Gozo. Comino can be reached from Cirkewwa in the
north-western part of Malta or from Mgarr in Gozo, where you can
take a ferry that goes to Comino.
Most visitors take Comino tours to mainly to visit the Blue Lagoon
which is a magnificent lagoon found at the northwest part of the
island. Its clear azure blue water is an unmatched site to see.
Comino tours are best done early in the morning since it usually
gets swamped with people later towards the day.
Another special site to see in Comino tours is the Crystal Lagoon
with its emerald green waters. It is almost as beautiful as the Blue
Lagoon, but since it is surrounded by cliffs, there is very little
chance to swim in this body of water. Still, many tourists visit it
to enjoy it stunning view.
Found less than a hundred meters from Comino is the island of
Cominotto. If you would like to escape the crowd in Comino, you can
hire a boat or even swim towards the island from the Blue Lagoon.
Comino tours are perfect to have with water sports. You can go
diving or snorkeling on its beautiful waters. You can arrange a
diving trip which will provide for both accommodation and will take
you to the spectacular diving sites.
Comino only has a few structures, the main site to see of which is
the Santa Maria Tower. It stands on top of the hill and can easily
be recognized even from afar. This tower was once a leprosy colony
building, but now serves as a home for the 4 inhabitants of the
island. A visit to this tower is a must in Comino tours. Aside from
the tower, Comino has a police station and a hotel with a number of
small bungalows where visitors can stay in. The island also has a
number of caves which were once used by pirates as a stronghold for
their attacks on luxury boars crossing from Gozo and Malta.
There are only about two or three cars in Comino, and these belong
to the hotel and the locals. There is a shuttle minivan that takes
you from the bungalows to the hotel itself. If you would like to get
around, you can rent a mountain bike (rented out by the hotel).
Biking around Comino is a pleasant experience but the rent may not
be all that cheap. Otherwise, Comino tours can be done by walking
and hiking the entire island for an hour or two.
The Comino Hotel is a medium sized hotel which is actually very
decent to stay in. Staying in this hotel in Comino tours will give
tourists the chance to explore the Blue Lagoon early on before the
crowds start to claim it towards the day. The bungalows, although
secluded, gives anyone who stay there the tranquility that can not
be found elsewhere in the Maltese islands.
Comino tours are a must for its very spectacular farmhouses, for its
remoteness, nature reserve, and spectacular views.
