The Blue Lagoon from Comino

Ain’t it pretty? I took this photo from the super small island of Comino here on Malta. What you see in the picture is the tiny islet of Cominotto (“little Comino”), which features a cool and fairly scary cave. One can swim the 100 meters across there (which I did), but a fair warning for potential currents and jellyfish is needed. On my way to Cominotto I had no problems. On the way back though the currents dragged me away quite a bit. Then at one point I could reach the sea floor with my feet, took a breath, then saw a jellyfish right next to me!

I had a good swim here after camping on this tiny island. Unfortunately it gets extremely busy in the afternoon with tourists. So if you’re going here, I really recommend camping out the night before to be extra early. This is one of the “calm” pictures I took before a whole fleet arrived. About thirty people per five minutes hit the beach. Good thing I came early!
