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, The Blue Lagoon, which is only a 20 minute walk away.  Even though Santa Maria Bay is not as beautiful and breathtaking as the Lagoon, it is a better option for the bathers looking for some relaxation.

Santa Maria Bay has shallow, clear waters and is set just next to Comino’s cute little police station to keep control the boats around Comino. It is mostly the locals coming with boats or guests from the Comino Hotel, as the 20 min walk from The Blue Lagoon can be exhausting in the summer heat. Santa Maria Bay might have some dead algae on the shore due to the currents, other than that, the beach is clean with bins around.

Another advantage Santa Maria Bay has over The Blue Lagoon are the lifeguards guarding over the bathers and the children. Santa Maria Bay is close to the Comino Hotel and the facilities at Santa Maria Bay are limited to the Comino Hotel.

Getting to Santa Maria Bay:

Santa Maria bay is about a 20min walk away from the Blue Lagoon, as The Blue Lagoon is the drop off point of the ferries that operate daily between Malta and Comino.

Catch a bus heading to Cirkewwa and ask the driver to drop you at the stop for the Comino ferry that departs from Marfa. Once you get off the bus, you have a 2 min walk to the pier, which is right opposite the Riviera hotel. Once there, take a small water taxi for €10 return. You can also take one of the small ferries just by the Gozo ferries, then stop at the last bus stop. Larger tourist vessels depart from Sliema Strand and Bugibba and go directly to the Blue Lagoon. You could also rent a boat if you would like to explore all Comino and not just the bay.
