Malta is three islands – Malta, Gozo and Comino – which make up the archepelago. The nicest of the three, if you're not crazy about hyper-development, is Comino. This almost completely undeveloped island is the smallest and, at last count, has three inhabitants and one hotel. Which sounds just about perfect to me.

In winter, both the ferries and the local buses cost a very reasonable €1.50 per trip. Hang on to your bus ticket though, because it's good for two hours, meaning you can hop on a second or even third bus within that timeframe without paying more.
