If you choose Lampedusaa sailing holiday in the Pelagie islands you could not miss the circumnavigation of Lampedusa. The low and jagged coast of Lampedusa is rich in inlets and bays; among these, is the Tabaccara, a splendid bay bathed by turquoise waters. The northern shore features a high cliff with plenty of impressing caves. Past the Baia della Madonnina (that got its name because of a rock that resembles the Virgin Mary) is the Sacramento Cliff, with a deepest grotto. In the North-Eastern end, known as Capo Grecale, is a lighthouse visible from up to 60 miles away, where extends a beautiful view of the coastal landscape. Then is the Grotta del Teschio (the Skull Grotto), hiding a 15m long sandy-beach, reachable by boat or along a rough path at right. Albero del Sole(the Sun Tree) is the highest point on Lampedusa (about 133m a.s.l.) There, from a stone wall at the edge of a steep slope, you can enjoy a dramatic sight of the sea. Bay of the Isola dei Conigli is petticoated with white cliffs and the most beautiful beach on the island; few meters offshore nestles a little islet.

Lampedusa The beach, with its finest sand, gently slopes to transparent waters that splendidly turn to turquoise and emerald green. Here the Caretta-Caretta turtle lays her eggs during the breeding season, an event today threatened by the big influx of tourists staying late at night when she usually comes ashore for nesting. The island’s natural sponges are a favorite souvenir for tourists. Whiter sponges, albeit attracting, may result from a chemical treatment that shortens their life span. The darker ones will definitely last longer. Lampedusa is especially renowned for food “souvenirs”, like lentils and pomodorini, and for its reed-baskets, much appreciated by tourists. On the island are many small restaurants and trattorias specialized in fish dishes, among which is a not-to-miss couscous. Come to discover Lampedusa on board of one of our boats: crystal sea waters, wonderful bays and untouched nature for your amazing sailing holiday among the wild Pelagie islands Archipelago.
