Shopping in Comino Island - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

Comino If you want to bring back home from Gozo something edible, pay your attention to the local honey and cheese. Honey here is more of a traditional souvenir, although, they use a unique technology to pick it. The thing is, the Maltese do not put hives, picking honey in clay pots, which are usually located in caves. The cheese is quite interesting too, and not only for its peculiar taste. They sell it in small, even tiny, 100 grams bricks. It is usually made from cow’s milk, but you can also find the one, made from goat’s milk. If you want to buy some cheese in a nice package, go to a souvenir shop. If you care about the taste, buy it in a local supermarket: it costs much less there but looks like a usual food product.

You can also buy alcohol as a souvenir. The liquor, made from the cactus fruit will definitely impress your friends and relatives with its distinctive taste. You can buy it on the island and in the airport on your way back home. But the first variant is preferable if you want to save your money. If you want to buy something healthy, try carob tree syrup, it’s called Gulepp Tal-Harrub in Maltese. The locals use it as a medicine when they catch a cold.
Sea salt is also a popular souvenir. They have been extracting it from the mines for centuries. The salt doesn’t cost much, though no chemical impurities contamination is guaranteed. It will also remind you of the journey for a long time. You can buy olive oil as well. The Maltese have their own secrets of the oil producing, thanks to which it has sweetness in its taste. If you don’t know how to preserve a certain product, safely ask a shop assistant. You can try to find out a couple of recipes with the ingredient you are buying. The Maltese are not greedy and usually share their culinary finds with the tourists. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Small copies of national symbols are popular here as well. You can easily buy yourself a Knight of Malta in any souvenir shop. It will be small though. Luzzu boats are also for sale. Previously, the locals used them to travel between the islands. By the way, one of the last remained luzzus is in Gozo’s port. Little yellow buses are quite popular here. The main municipalities on Malta and Gozo are connected by the bus lines. Though, you won’t see the original one – yellow buses were replaced with new models.
Comino Take a look at jewelry shops. Golden jewelry is one of the trademarks of Malta. There are also places to buy it on Gozo. When buying jewelry, remember, that within reasonable limits bargaining is appropriate here. The tourists also like to buy the goods, made from the Maltese glass. The glass-blowing handicraft is developing here since the beginning of time. That is why the people from Gozo reached greater heights in it. Vases, tableware, kids’ toys – there is nothing impossible for the local craftsmen and it all looks amazing. Another national craft, popular among the Maltese, is tatting. The Maltese lace has no equal in the whole world. It was used in Queen Victoria’s gowns for a reason. Note, that even a small lace tissue won’t be cheap, but, on the other side, every item is unique.
