She’s back and ready to serve up some of the Maltese Islands’ most scenic views! Back in January, local organisation Ambjent Malta announced that the area known as Tal-Ful on Malta’s little sister and Natura 2000 site would become a fully-fledged campsite by mid-2019. And boy, did they deliver!

A camping ban was issued a few months back for rehabilitation works to begin in the area, which included cleaning and floor levelling, installation of containers for disposal waste and indigenous tree planting. The works were projected to be completed ahead of summer including a regeneration and restoration project near the popular Santa Marija Bay.

Chairman of Ambjent Malta Conrad Borg Manche explained that previously unregulated camping was causing damage to the little sister isle. “Random camping in Comino used to contribute to extensive damage to the environment,” Manche told MaltaToday.

The Chairman also said that following the rehab works, a new designated camping area can be found close to Santa Marija Bay. He also disclosed that “thousands of new trees were planted” in the new area.

Camping in Comino

1 To camp on the Natura 2000 site, campers need to file an application through the Environment Resources Authority (ERA) to be granted permission to pitch their tents there.

2 Campers are asked to make use of the waste disposal system on the island in order to protect the environment.

3 Most importantly, stay safe, respect surroundings, and have a blast at Comino’s new campsite!
