The small island of Comino with an area of 3.5 km2 (1.35 mi2) and less than 10 inhabitants is the third and smallest island of the Maltese group.

While the island was inhabited by farmers during the Roman Times, its population has dwindled over the ages to today's less than 10.

There are several very attractive anchorages in Comino.
