, the third largest Island in the Maltese Archipelago.
There are still some inhabitants on Comino, the last I heard was that the population
stood at 2. Many years ago a village community with plenty inhabitants thrived,
but nowadays the Kemmunians are dying out! I would be the first one to move there if it were possible,
no cars, no roads, just sea, sun and nature. The Island is around 3kmē, the most promininet
structure being the Comino Hotel, a four star hotel, open between April and October.
It offers normal hotel rooms plus bungalows on the other side of the Island.
There is also a Police Station, with two policemen on duty, and a church where mass is held
every Sunday morning.
There is lots to explore on the Islands, I have tried to walk
the coast of Comino in one day and I didn't manage. You'll find a recently restored
tower at the center of the Island, built by the Knights of Malta in the early sixteen hundreds.
There is also a watch tower on the southern coast, probably built at the same era. You will also
find remains of the village including a cemetary and a bakery.
Last but not least, go to Comino for the beaches scattered around the Island. The most popular two
are Blue Lagoon
Santa Marija Bay
. You can get a ferry to Comino
from Cirkewwa, or get day trips from Bugibba. Comino lies between Malta & Gozo and it will
take you about 30 minutes to get there by boat.
