MALTA ~ Gozo & Comino ~

... Wonderful views of probably the most beautiful Mediterranean islands Malta, Gozo and Comino... both of the islands culture and history go back hand in hand with Malta... these islands are famous for their diving sites, unspoiled beaches, pre-historic landmarks, and scenic beauty... Thanks a lot Chris!!【ツ】

Malta is comprised of an archipelago of 6 islands situated south of Sicily and east of Tunisia. North of the mainland lies Comino and north of that Gozo. It gained independence from the UK in 1964.

Just 20 kilometres and 20 minutes ferry ride from mainland Malta’s port of Cirkewwa, Gozo remains an unspoilt land of farmers and fishermen. After the island of Malta itself, it is the second-largest island in the archipelago.

Comino was named after the plentiful cumin (flowering plant) that grows on the island. The entire island is classified as a wildlife sanctuary nowadays.
