What To Do In Comino

The Comino Only tour, has a four (4) hour straight visit to the island of Comino.

How did we spend our 4 hours on Comino?

When we embarked on Comino, we first started walking around discovering the island and taking photographs. When we went, Blue Lagoon was full of people, so we did not swim there. We found another place to swim, so we walked to the Comino hotel where it was much quieter and had a pleasant swim. After that we had lunch at the Comino hotel and relaxed for some time.

What are the other alternatives?

You can switch between staying on the boat and going on the island whenever you want.

So lets say you want to go on the tour during a quiet season (Around October to March).

  • Comino will not be as busy as the prime season.
  • Blue lagoon will not be packed with people so it is the perfect place to have a swim.
  • It will be easy to find a sunbed at Blue Lagoon depending on the weather. Late months they are not available.
  • The weather will not be that hot so you can hike around the island, walk up to the Santa Maria tower and admire the beautiful views.
  • If you feel that Blue Lagoon is a little busy and prefer to swim elsewhere, you can walk to Santa Maria Sandy Beach or the Comino Hotel where there is an area safe to swim. They are both 15 minutes away from the disembarking point and they are not usually crowded. You can also rent sun-beds.

Now lets say you want to go during the high season (Around April to September).

  • Blue Lagoon will be crowded during peak summer months with tourists and Maltese, so finding a place to swim will be difficult.
  • The weather will be hot, so exploring the island will be tough.
  • Walking around Blue Lagoon will be even more crowded than normal.
  • The island will look more beautiful as there will be a lot of activity.
  • With a 15-minute walk you to the Comino hotel and a further 10-minute walk to arrive at the Santa Maria Beach. You can enjoy a swim at the small quiet bay beside the hotel. You can also go to the reception area and enjoy a snack in an air-conditioned environment.
  • If you love exploring and hiking, you must visit the Santa Maria tower and the view surrounding it. Be aware that it will be very hot so take a hat, plenty of water, sunblock and comfortable shoes.

Lets say that you would rather stay on the boat than explore the island. The boat offers various facilities such as:

  1. Swim, snorkel and enjoying the comforts of the boat.
  2. Sunbathing on comfortable soft mattresses.
  3. Inside the air-conditioned seating area there is a snack bar. A comfort not found on the island.

In this way, you can enjoy the surrounding unusual relaxing environment.

Trip Route to Blue Lagoon Cruise

The Sea Adventure Excursions takes on passengers at 08:30. It leaves at 10:00, so to get good seats you need to arrive early.

Departure times are normally at 10:30 but changes to 10:00 during peak time and also when the clocks changes to winter time.

After leaving Bugibba jetty, it sails along the coast with St. Paul’s islands on the right side. It is said that Saint Paul shipwrecked on these islands on his way to Rome in 60 A.D.

It continues sailing along the coast up to the far end tip of Mellieha passing close to the cave of the film ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ filmed in Malta in 2002.

The captain visits other interesting caves along the way, Smugglers, Coral and Santa Maria. It is an experience getting so close inside them. It is a moment where the captain steers the catamaran inside as much as possible.

In the meantime, many tourists and locals come out on the deck to take photos. Visiting the caves always evokes a lot of emotions.

Sailing further up midway of Malta and Comino, we pass by the Knights of Malta coastal battery known as the ‘Battery of Saint Mary’ and further up the imposing St. Mary’s tower. They are both on Comino Island.

The catamaran will then stop at the Crystal Lagoon for one hour. Many consider the visit of one hour to the Crystal Lagoon as the highlight of the trip. Surrounding the Crystal Lagoon is high rock faces, and the cave is very extraordinary.

Then again, it sails straight to the Blue Lagoon mooring at a very comfortable point for disembarking. From here your four-hour stay begins.

After a while, the sea adventure excursions sail to Mgarr harbour in Gozo, just a 15 minutes trip one way. This part of the trip was for those people who booked the Comino & Gozo Tour or booked the ticket for Gozo on the boat.

Then the boat returns to the Blue Lagoon and remains there till 16:00. At 16:00 it leaves again to Mgarr harbour to collect the passengers and sails back to Bugibba arriving at 17:15.
