The Pelagie, the African islands
So-called because they are closer to Africa than to Europe.
Linosa, an island made from lava with an area of approximately 5 square kilometres which is dotted with small, coloured houses, has incredible rocks sculpted by the wind, a wonderful indented coastline and a beautiful crystal-clear sea but only a few small beaches of black, volcanic sand.
Further south is an island without equals, Lampedusa, with its beautiful sandy beaches and pure waters; this is the furthest south in Italy you can go and here you are closer to Africa than to Sicily. Lampedusa still maintains the character of a frontier land, somewhat isolated but nevertheless with a rare charm.
Spiaggia dei Conigli (Lampedusa)
Located on the southern part of Lampedusa island, in a natural park, this beach is characterized by fine white sand and crystal-clear waters and a shallow seabed. In front of the beach there is the homonymous islands, which unfortunately cannot be visited: its accessi s monitored 24/7 in order to protect the turtles that lay eggs on the beach.
