Blue Lagoon (A gem in the Mediterranean sea) – Ferry Trips

Comino – Blue Lagoon  Situated between Malta and Gozo, the smaller island of Comino is a paradise for snorkelers, divers, windsurfers and ramblers. Only 3.5 square kilometers, Comino is car-free and apart from one hotel, is virtually uninhabited. The island’s main attraction is the Blue Lagoon. In summer, this sheltered inlet of shimmering aquamarine water over white sand is very popular with day-trippers. Comino is also worth a visit in winter, and is ideal for walkers and photographers. With no urban areas or cars on the island, one can easily smell the scent of wild thyme and other herbs. Comino was inhabited in the Roman period, but did not have much significance until the Knights arrived. It then had a dual role: hunting grounds and a staging post in the defence of the Maltese Islands against the Ottoman Turks. The island had proved a useful base for pirates operating in the central Mediterranean and, though stark and barren today, it was home to wild boar and hares when the Knights arrived in 1530. The Grandmasters went to great lengths to ensure that their game on Comino was protected: anyone found breaking the embargo on hunting could expect to serve three years rowing on a galley. After WWII, Comino remained a backwater until its fortunes revived with tourism in the mid-1960s. (Reference – http://www.visitmalta.com/en/island-of-comino)

Best Beaches in Malta

Information from: https://blog.shortletsmalta.com/2017/05/08/6-beaches-in-malta-youll-fall-in-love-with/ 6 Beaches in Malta you’ll fall in love with Summer in Malta is synonymous with long, lazy days at the beach, golden tans, and that amazing feeling you get when you push your toes into the cool, shade-drenched sand. Whether you’re hitting the Maltese Islands for a few days, a couple of weeks, or even months, here are a few of the best beaches in Malta to help you unwind this summer! Grab your beach bag. 1.   The Blue Lagoon Known the world over for its crystal-clear water and idyllic setting in Comino, Lagoon is an absolute must-see during your time here. To enjoy Comino and Blue Lagoon properly, you’ll need to spend at least one full morning or afternoon there, if not the whole day! 2.   Golden Bay Nestled between two sides of unmistakably Maltese terrain, you’ll find Golden Bay – the very first beach in Malta to get the coveted Blue Flag status. It’s perfect for families, and has all the amenities you’ll need for a very comfortable day at the beach. If you’ve got the time, stay and watch the sun set! 3.   Għajn Tuffieħa Just around the corner from Golden Bay, you’ll find its equally-attractive sibling – Għajn Tuffieħa. It’s an incredibly popular beach, and can get a little busy at times, but the sweeping, panoramic views are so beautiful, it’ll be worth it. 4.   St. Peter’s Pool If you’re feeling a little adventurous and don’t mind heading off the beaten track, then look no further than St. Peter’s Pool. This rocky bay is generally quiet, and not too far from the charming fishing village of Marsaxlokk – why not stop there for a delicious meal before heading back home? 5.   Mellieħa Bay Known to locals as Għadira, this is the island’s largest sandy beach and has quite a long stretch of shallow surf – perfect if you’re travelling with children. Għadira is generally quite busy, but it’s easy to get to and is Blue Flag certified too. There are bus stops really close by, and you’ll even find a few great options if you want a bite to eat during the day. 6.   Paradise Bay This aptly-named bay is tucked away near Ċirkewwa, cradled by white cliffs and perfectly-positioned to give you some great views of Gozo and Comino. Popular with families and snorkelers in particular, this beach offers you the chance to kick back, relax, and get to know the (underwater) locals better. BONUS: Ramla L-Ħamra Your Maltese adventure is incomplete without a visit to Gozo. Ramla L-Ħamra (The Red Sandy Beach) is a beautiful stretch of deep golden sand on the northern side of the island. Look to the eastern part of the hillside, and you’ll find a pathway that’ll take you to Calypso Cave, the same one Homer talks about in his famous work, The Odyssey!
