Comino Blue Lagoon
Comino Blue Lagoon’s sparkling turquoise waters have always been a haven for travellers of all ages.
Where is the Blue Lagoon?
The Blue Lagoon is a golden-sand beach on the island of Comino. Comino, (Kemmuna in Maltese), is the third-largest island of the Maltese archipelago. It is found between the two main islands of Malta and Gozo. As you leave Malta and approach Gozo, you will notice an increasingly larger island off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
- First off, let’s list the things you’ll need to pack and prepare before going to Comino’s blue lagoon.
- Get that sun but make sure to pack sunscreen! There are no trees in Blue Lagoon so you’ll definitely get that vacation tan you’ve always wanted.
- Get cash with you, this island has no ATMs so prepare cold cash.
- There are food stalls in the Blue Lagoon so you don’t need to worry about getting hungry. But you can bring snacks for travel just in case.
- If you plan to walk, have some tight shoes or at least sandals and make sure you’re ready for all types of terrain wet and dry.
- There are good public toilettes and showers, so you don’t have to worry about relieving yourself in some bush.
- There are lifeguards, so make sure to follow rules. Sometimes, currents can be quite strong, and the lifeguards will allow swimming only next to the shore
- Take a boat trip with Supreme Power Boats Malta from the island of Malta and Gozo to reach the Blue Lagoon.
Now that we’ve already covered what to bring and prepare before going there, the question is how do you actually get to this off-grid heaven?
How to get to the Blue Lagoon
The best way to get to the Blue Lagoon is to take a Supreme Power Boat Trip from Sliema to Comino.
Once you step onto Comino, every beach is pretty much accessible on foot. Once you arrive at the Blue Lagoon, you can go on Comino, where you can get to Santa Marija Beach or the Crystal beach within minutes on foot.
When to visit the Blue Lagoon
Summer is most definitely peak season for Blue Lagoon for obvious reasons. The refreshing cool waters and caves of the island are the ultimate way to beat the summer heat. Dive and swim in these incredible waters. You can book online for an amazing Boat Trip to Comino and the Blue Lagoon.
Between June and September are peak summer months. This time the Lagoon will attract thousands of tourists. Also, the Blue Lagoon is possibly the most significant, most popular touristic spot of all the Maltese islands. You may have to prepare to squeeze in with fellow Sunkissed tourists if you visit the island in these months.
If you are a traveller who does not like the crowds, you should visit Blue Lagoon either right before the peak season, March-May, or right after, between the end of October and November.
The water can be still relatively warm even in December and get colder in January. On a sunny winter day, the temperature here is about 20 degrees. There are even those that still swim in the dazzling sapphire ocean even during winter.
Let’s say you booked early for a summer vacation in Blue Lagoon, what should you expect once you get there?
- At peak season, it’s pretty crowded between 10 am and 4 pm. Because there are only a few small patches of sand, the early birds would snatch the sweet spots and you may not be able to squeeze in the good spots if you come in late.
- With the number of people flocking there during peak hours, there will be noise.
- There are other (rocky areas) where you can leave your stuff while you dive in, but the safest option is to leave the items on the boat since it will be well-taken care of by Supreme Power Boats officials.
