Find the best Comino Island Malta photos right here, but before we start here is an introduction about this tiny island.

Seeing Comino Island from the ferry that crosses the channel between Malta and Gozo is hard to imagine. There are cliffs, caves, three small sandy beaches, a nature reserve, and a natural cliff coast that make this a great place to go swimming, snorkeling, diving, or just hiking. With a size of only 3.5 square kilometers and only two residents, Comino is a car-free island.

The Blue Lagoon Malta is the island's main attraction.

The Maltese archipelago is a great Mediterranean holiday destination.

The Island of Gozo From Blue Lagoon Comino Malta

From the lagoon, Gozo is closer to Comino than Comino is to Malta. The shoreline can also be seen from this point.

A boat operator operates between the three main islands all year round, depending on the weather conditions, and the trip is very easy and short.

Crystal Lagoon Malta

Crystal Lagoon is more exclusive than other lagoons. Due to the surrounding high cliffs, it is only accessible by boat. It is one of Malta's most beautiful lagoons. The turquoise water is pristine and crystal clear which makes snorkeling truly enjoyable.

This beautiful Crystal Lagoon was the location for the filming of the Count of Monte Cristo in 2002.
