On our third day in Malta, we headed to Debbie’s Cafe for breakfast. Keen to try some of the different foods on offer, my partner opted for the French Toast with syrup, compote and cream and I had the fluffy pancakes with syrup and fruit compote.
As usual the food was fresh, delicious and filling!
Bellies full, we booked a taxi to the nearby ferry port Cirkewwa. Cirkewwa has boats and ferries running to Malta’s two smaller, sister islands Gozo and Comino. We booked return tickets to the smallest island Comino.
The small boats to Comino run frequently in the summer, but it’s worth checking online or picking up a leaflet to make sure on times.
After a fairly short boat ride, we arrived on the island. Comino is most famous for it’s crystal clear, turquoise coloured water, known as the Blue Lagoon. The island is virtually uninhabited, with only four permanent residents and it has food and drink stalls, sunbeds and basic facilities for visitors.
We paid for two sunbeds and got the best seats in the house! We sat on the thin stretch of sand, next to the beautifully clear water.
We ventured in to the Blue Lagoon, where the water’s so mesmerising and blue, we could have happily swam all day.

I sunbathed and drank a Pina Colada cocktail out of a pineapple to cool off.

We boarded the boat back to the Maltese mainland and headed straight for the tourist attraction, Popeye Village. Popeye Village is a film set where the Popeye film starring Robin William’s was made. You can go inside the film set, swim in sea, sunbathe, play golf and much more.
We only visited briefly this time, mainly to go to the on-site Silversmiths, who makes amazing jewellery.
Here’s a few photos from our visit this time.

We headed back to our hotel to freshen up and it was only then that I could see how much I’d caught the sun! Needless to say, sunburnt feet are pretty painful.
After getting showered and changed, we headed to the restaurant Tosca on our street. We ate at Tosca last year and was impressed by the fresh and flavoursome food. I was just as impressed this time.
To start with, I had the broccoli and potato soup with crusty bread. It may not look that appetizing, but Tosca do the best soups. My partner had a big bowl of tasty calamari.
For mains I had the delicious funghi pizza, whilst my partner had an asparagus and pancetta pasta dish.
After a long day, we headed back to our hotel to relax, ready for day four.
