2 Bay Cruise
Our experienced Captain will choose the best 2 bays the island has to offer, depending on weather conditions*, from the following options:
- The clear azure waters of the Blue Lagoon,
- The stunning cliffs that surround the Crystal Lagoon,
- The tranquil Santa Maria Bay and
- il-Ġebla Tal-Ħalfa, a beautiful rock pinnacle surrounded by crystal clear water, situated off the southern coast of Gozo.
Drinks and snacks are available to purchase onboard from our mini bar, and don’t forget your swimming costumes as there will be time to take a dip in the warm, clear waters of Comino.
Lying in the shadow of one of the Maltese islands’ famous 17th Century Wignacourt towers, the Crystal Lagoon is the lesser known of Comino’s two lagoons.Shafts of light appear to come from its seabed, hence its name. It is surrounded on all sides by high cliffs which provide great shelter for boats.
You’ll get day-trippers coming in and out of the lagoon at the height of summer, but the most part its quiet.
The Origin of the name Tal-Halfa is a matter of conjecture. The word ‘halfa’ means ‘oath’ or ‘vow’ in Maltese. A local legend links with the name of the islet with Dragut, a famous pirate warrior and Ottoman admiral, who swore to seek revenge on his brother’s death on the island of Gozo.
According to this legend, Dragut’s brother was killed in Gozo while raiding the island in 1544.
Santa Maria Bay
Santa Maria Bay in Comino has shallow, clear waters ideal with less people. Santa Maria Bay is located in Comino and this small, sandy beach is a quieter option than its popular neighbour.
You can also notice the old Police Station that have been there for many years, yet there is only one family living in Comino island.
The Blue Lagoon is an attractive location with wonderful turquoise blue sea located at Comino, a grand getaway during your holiday in Malta. Close to some beach areas, families with young children can swim and wade safely as the sea is shallow. The treasure of the crystal clear waters of the Blue Lagoon attracts many tourists especially during the summer months. One cannot miss an opportunity to visit while in Malta.
