Located just off the southern coast of Sicily, Lampedusa is Italy’s southernmost island, laying right at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. There are weekly sailings to Linosa, a small island neighbouring Sicily, and Porto Empedocle, an Italian coastal resort laying on the south west coast of Sicily.
Famous for its glorious beaches and scorching sun, Lampedusa has become a hotbed of tourism, with visitors typically from Western Europe heading there for their summer holiday. The most famous attraction on Lampedusa is Rabbit Island, dubbed by respected blog website Huffington Post as the best beach in the world. Ironically, there are no rabbits on the island, however, the beach is famous for the loggerhead sea turtles that frequent the waters and can even be seen by non-swimmers. Nature and animal lovers will also be delighted to know that whales and dolphins can be spotted from the cliffs of the island; there are spots specifically designed for whale spotters to sit and spend an afternoon.
Away from the beaches and sea life, the Lampedusa Cross is a must see when visiting the island. Remarkably, the cross is made from pieces of a shipwrecked boat that crashed off the coast of Lampedusa in 2013. The cross was designed to symbolise the lost lives of the refugees, but also a reminder that inhabitants of the island helped save the lives of 155 people on the ship.
Many choose to get around the island by hiring a moped, creating a quick and easy way to explore. Alternatively, there are taxis available to transport passengers to and from the ferry terminal.
