Hidden in a small inlet, situated between the island of Comino and Cominetto, the Blue Lagoon is one of the most photogenic attractions in the Mediterranean. White sand and blue clear waters make up this beautiful lagoon, an image not to be missed.
Just a boat ride away from Malta or Gozo, boats head to Comino to get to this wonderful lagoon. Comino is the smallest island in the Maltese archipelago, just one square mile in size with only 4 permanent residents and totally car-free. Comino has one hotel surrounded by 3 sandy beeches. The Comino coastline has many small creeks and sea caves and of course the picturesque Blue Lagoon.
The Blue Lagoon is a wonderful natural lagoon featured in many scenes in films including Helen of Troy and the Count of Monte Cristo. The crystal clear waters are sheltered and the seabed is covered in sand emitting a beautiful turquoise colour when reflected in the sun light. The Blue Lagoon is considered to be one of the safest swimming zones even for young swimmers. It is visited by many local and visitor swimmers and divers, and especially popular for snorkeling due to its variety of marine life.
The Blue Lagoon is a popular destination for many boats and yachts. Many boat trips and cruises are organised for many visitors on a daily basis, especially during the long summer periods.
