Comino – The East Side

Comino – The East Side

Sounds like Comino was a huge island and I’m trying to describe a region, but that’s not even close. In fact, there’s nothing here in terms of buildings. However, nobody seems to be interested on the East side of Comino. Mainly because the Blue Lagoon (the most attractive place for toutists) is on the West side of the island.

But if you like peace and want to snorkel or dive or simply see a very nice landscape with a very high cliff like the one on the picture then you have to come to the East Side of Comino. Trust me – chances are you will come across wild rabbits – and I’m not joking.

Virgin in Malta

Virgin in Malta

I remember now, it was a cold and very humid day of winter. The weather forecast said it was going to be foggy and rainy. Instead it was just cloudy and very windy. First time I was in that part of the island and surprised by this virgin who seems to be overlooking at every single boat that crosses her sight.

Stormy day it was, perfect of dramatic scenaries and there it was. A cross attached to a random stone in the shore. I just thought who and how did the person managed to put it there… and most importantly why?

Regardless when you come Comino is beautiful, although I would avoid coming here during summer but that’s up to you. I was lucky enough to stay in Comino overnight twice. The fact that it is a tiny island makes it easy to run from west to east and viceversa and see and amazing sunset or sunrise in COmino. It definetely worths it.

Valetta at Night

Valetta at Night


I wish I could have visited Valetta on its heyday. Nowadays Valetta is a nice place, it’s the Capital City after all but it’s dirty and everything and everyone seems to die after 19:30. However, if you wander a bit in the evenings you can see beautiful places like this one overlooking the biggest Dome in Valetta and a landmark from wherever you look at it.
