Santa Maria Bay
Marine Approach Chart
Very good holding ground for anchoring. No stern to or along side moorings, ideal for swimming, either at the inner sandy beach or in the outer crystal clear deep water. Good hotel facilities, accessible by tender but pre booking with Comino Hotel necessary. Police station and toilets available on land while the area amongst the trees is popular for camping. A small church a few metres away from the beach is dedicated to the Return of Our Lady from Egypt. This was built in the early sixteen hundreds but has been restored many times since then. Mass is celebrated on Saturdays at 6.00pm and 7.15pm and on Sundays at 8.30am.
