Wild Camping on Comino

Two weeks ago, I organized a couchsurfing event for Wild Camping in Comino.

The plan was to have no plan, just to explore the small island and sleep somewhere.

Luckily I found at least two people who wanted to join me 🙂

We took a boat from Sliema and went along the east coast to Gozo and from there to Comino.

After walking around for a while we found an old hotel on the other side of the island. First we planned to set up our camp here.

But then we´ve seen a beautiful Beach and wanted to camp there 😉

So we went there and actually found an official wild camping area . They even had some stone bbqs, a toilet and a shower nearby.

After taking a swim and laying in the sun for a couple of hours, we continued to explore the island a little bit more:

The rest of the day we collected wood for our bbq night. The tent neighbors gave us some of their wood as well and at the end we had a quite big campfire for a couple of hours.

I prepared a Smoked Tuna Patagonia Style as an appetizer and to light up the fire. After that we had some soup and finished with spicy bbq chicken and Feta Cheese a la Anna.

What a meal! 🙂

 

On the next day we went back to the Blue Lagoon on the other side of the island.

From there we took the boat back to Sliema.
