Lantern Point Comino
At the most southwestern point of Comino there is a dive site named Lantern Point (Lighthouse Reef or the Chimney). Divers here can explore some huge boulders, caves, tunnels and a reef wall. This location offers enough action for experienced divers as well as for novice divers who may prefer to stay near the wall and at the shallower parts of this dive site.
