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.
