The Legend of Comino
The Maltese Islands
Book Online

Comino is a small island which rises from the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, in the Maltese archipelago between the larger islands of Malta and Gozo.

Although the island’s land mass is only 3 square kilometres, Comino presents an extraordinary bounty of natural treasures and historical sites.

It remains an unspoilt jewel, secluded from the two main islands. It is a Nature Reserve, allowing visitors to enjoy its rugged beauty to the full.

The land rises to a maximum height of 80 metres above sea level, sloping down to relatively flat areas in the North-Eastern part of the island.

There are small sandy beaches dotted about the island, and numerous little coves and rocky inlets which allow for a refreshing swim in the crystal clear water.

Most of all, the lack of motor traffic means continuously fresh air, which invigorates you from the first moment you arrive on the island to the time you eventually leave.

On clear nights the stars appear as brilliant dots in the sky, a perfect backdrop to the fantastic views all around you.
