72 Hours in Malta, Gozo & Comino

Malta truly an underrated gem of the Mediterranean. Its ancient city holds so much history, with a heavy presence of prehistoric Neolithic culture marked by Megalithic structures, which date back to 3600 BC.

Much of the architecture is very reminiscent of Rome, which comes as no surprise as Malta remained part of the Roman Empire until the early 6th century AD.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, the food in Malta is outstanding. We enjoyed a variety of seafood dishes, including this phenomenal lobster pasta dish.

Gozo Island

If you choose to venture outside of Malta, I highly recommend taking the ferry over to Gozo. There is quite a lot to do on the island, and because we didn’t want to rely on taxis or busses, we rented a 4-wheeler.

This is a great way to see the island at your own pace, and it was also a blast.

We visited the ancient aqueducts, Fungus Rock, and Ġgantija Temple all via quad.

At over 5,500 years old, Ġgantija (pronounced “Gigantess”) is the oldest free standing structure in the world that still stands. That’s right, it is even older than the Great Pyramids of Egypt AND Stonehenge!

The temple is thought to have been build for the goddess of fertility, as many fertility artifacts were discovered here.

If you’re a fan of history and archeology, I highly recommend visiting the temple and its museum. The museum holds some incredible artifacts that once belonged to the temple.

Comino Island

Blue Lagoon, Camino, Malta

Comino Island is well known for its Blue Lagoon. The water was incredibly blue and clear, and perfect for swimming. It does get pretty busy, and the island is small, so I’d recommend arriving early to avoid the crowds. We took the ferry over from Malta and it was quick and easy.
