Kemmuna (Comino) and its islets, a highly protected area of a bit less than 3km² form part of the municipality of Għajnsielem Gozo. Historically a preferred hideaway by corsairs, Comino is now a haven for birds and tranquillity — hunting is not allowed, nor are vehicles other than those used by the resident population or by hotel staff.
Currently the main island has a permanent population of four people
and a seasonal hotel operates from San Niklaw Bay. The short walking route described here is a circular one which starts and ends at Bejn il-Kmiemen (Blue Lagoon) in an anticlockwise direction. The trail follows the main pathways but can easily be extended by going off the beaten track to explore the island in more detail especially along the wild cliffs on the east side.
The Blue Lagoon is the most popular site among day trippers — it can get quite crowded on sunny days as early as May but otherwise few people venture along the coast or into the heart of Comino.
