Travel tip: the Blue La­goon

Spotlight - - NEWS & VIEWS -

Sum­mer may be leav­ing main­land Europe, but Malta’s sea­side is still sunny and hot. The fa­mous Blue La­goon off the tiny is­land of Comino — between Malta and Gozo — is a mag­net for those who fol­low the warm weather, and Septem­ber is a fine, some­what less busy time to visit this place of great beauty.

For the Knights of Malta, Comino was a place for hunt­ing wild pigs and guard­ing St Mary’s Tower. The com­pact 17th­cen­tury fortress re­mains an ar­chi­tec­tural high­light, easy to spot for vis­i­tors who sail there to ex­pe­ri­ence the ex­quis­ite, crys­tal-clear bay edged by cliffs. Some of these rocks run down to the the Blue La­goon — pro­vid­ing easy ac­cess for swim­ming or sim­ply a pretty place to sit and take in the shin­ing won­der of the sea.
