    We took a half day kayaking trip from Mgarr Harbour in Gozo to Comino with Rugged Coast Adventures. It was fantastic and I would highly recommend it. You get to see so much more than if you're sat at the Blue Lagoon or whizzing past on a speed boat. We went into some of the caves, which would be inaccessable unless you're a very good swimmer, or a diver.
    We stopped for a while on Cominotto, the smaller island opposite the Blue Lagoon. It was deserted and meant we could go snorkelling and swimming in peace, without worrying about getting hit by a boat either! Just keep an eye out for jellyfish, they're quite small and seem to get washed closer to the shore as the boats come and go in the Lagoon.
    Our guide was great and didn't rush us, even though I was lagging behind on the way back!
    Even if you've never been kayaking before, give this a go - relaxing, amazing, brilliant fun!

    Equipment: Good high factor waterproof sun tan lotion, something to swin in, a long sleeved t-shirt if you burn easily, maybe a hat, shoes you don't mind getting wet.

    The clear waters around Comino, its interesting seascape, underwater caves and grottoes and a profusion of marine life attracts scuba divers. The submerged coastline of this island is dotted with dark and eerie caves which abound with living marine creatures.
    The Mediterranean Sea around Malta and Gozo temperatures average around 23ºC in summer and drop down to around 13ºC to 15ºC in December to March. Dry suits are advisable in the winter, where as a 5mm wetsuit will be more than enough from late spring to early autumn. Medicals are no long needed for certified divers as Malta now works on a self certification system similar to the PADI one.

    Cominotto is only 100m away from Comino Island and the crystal clear waters of the Blue Lagoon tempt everyone to swim up to its shores.

    Although its shore looks like a rocky sponge, on a small spot, where someone also put some umbrellas, you can walk.

    In case you are not an experienced swimmer don't try this!

    Hiking on Comino Island

    The Blue Lagoon from Comino's shore

    The best way to understand the beauty of Comino Island is walking along the coast.

    The island has far more to offer than the Blue Lagoon, and a day spent around can offer plenty of natural surprises: wild rabbits, rats, snakes, beetles, ants and other animals can be admired here.

    The path around Comino's coast is 9km long and it takes around half of a day.

    Equipment: Good and comfortable shoes (no sandals/slippers), hat, sun protection lotion, water.
