Cominotto (Maltese: Kemmunett), sometimes referred to as Cominetto, is an uninhabited Mediterranean island off the northern coast of Malta.[1][2] Measuring only 0.25 square kilometres (0.10 sq mi) in area it is the largest uninhabited island of Malta, Cominotto lies 100 metres (328 feet) to the north-west of Comino.

Between Comino and Cominotto lie the transparent, cyan waters of the Blue Lagoon (Maltese: Bejn il-Kmiemen, literally "Between the Cominos"). Frequented by large numbers of tourists and tour boats daily, the Blue Lagoon makes it popular with divers and snorkelers.[3]
