BIKING ON COMINO IS AN EXPERIENCE not to be missed. Perched between Malta and Gozo, it’s the third largest island of the archipelago.
Only 3.5km squared, gravel roads and untouched paths, this island is the perfect choice if you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. Whether you’re interested in a day trip or overnight camping, Comino is the ideal place for the more rugged adventurer.
The ferries to Comino are frequent. If you’ve rented a bike from Eco Sports, you can take it with you to explore the island. Head to the Comino Ferries kiosk next to the Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal. Don’t take the Gozo Channel! The Comino Ferry kiosk down the road in Marsa will most likely send you directly here as well if you’re taking a bicycle with you.
Cycling on Comino is pretty fun. One can explore the scenery and not be concerned with any traffic whatsoever. The paths are rugged and gravelly so we suggest using one of our MTB’s or Electric MTB’S. Constant dips in the translucent waters are a must. Take some of our snorkel gear or SUP’s with you and you’ll be pleasantly surprised with your experience. There are many amazing spots to swim in but the best is by far Blue Lagoon. Granted, it gets excessively crowded here in the summer months, so get there early and enjoy the peace and quiet before the packs of party animals arrive.
Don’t forget to check what time the last ferry ride comes and make sure you leave enough time to catch the one that allows bikes!
