Italy’s southernmost island, Lampedusa lies between Malta and Tunisia and is geographically part of the African continent. The largest of the Pelagian Islands, Lampedusa is arid and gets its only fresh water from rainfall. In summer, it is served by low-cost Italian airlines with direct flights from several mainland cities, as well as ferry service from Sicily. Lampedusa is treasured by visitors for its fine white sandy beaches, its clear turquoise waters and its excellent scuba diving.

This is THE best beach in Lampedusa. Stunning views, however, there are prettier Beaches in Greece and Spain, so it is a bit over-rated.
Be there before 9:30 am or after 1 pm, so you get a nice car parking place upstairs along the road and a spot for your parasol. You HAVE to carry everything with you (15 mins down, 20 mins up). One part of the beach is for people without parasol.
With southern winds (scirocco), you get often jellyfish that cause trouble. With stronger nothern wind sand is blasted everywhere. I imagine August is terrible and very crowded.
Afternoon visit is better, so when you come up, it not so hot. Good shoes advisable but people do it also with flip-flops. There is also a small and difficult path to the next beach.

As the turtle population decreases the work being done by the volunteers at "Centro di Recupero Tartarughe" is most admirable. Led by the marine biologist Daniele Freggi the centre is doing their utmost to rescue, treat and rehabilitate injured and sick turtles.
Please visit the centre and show your support. Mark and Charmaine

Very well arranged exhibition of photos, artifacts, books and other tidbits related to Lampedusa's über-fascinating history, both ancient (Phoenicians) and recent (immigrant tsunami, visit of Pope Francesco). Owner and curator Nino is very knowledgeable and a good source of information on anything related to the island.

We thoroughly enjoyed this beach. It was not as highly rated as Spiaggia dei Conigli beach but we were very happy to have visited, as it is really beautiful, and a bit emptier than Conigli beach

Simply great. Just choose a fish a grill it. Tartara di tonno highly recommended. Tuna/swordfish/calamari.... Very delicious. Also the prepared food is valuable. (not the Tuna balls probably)

A must to live in the local culture. Remember .... life is not only a beach! Best if you ask a local man (we had our hotel host for it) to explain you the history and all traditions behind it.

This is a very unique side of the Island. Located inthe West side of Lampedusa, really close to the lighthouse you can enjoy a wonderful view and wonderful sea. The best period obviously is during the summer when restaurant and hotel are open for business. During the rest of the year it looks a nice nostalgic place.
