The Pelagie Islands ArchipelagoPelagie Islands with the island of Pantelleria represent an amazing destination for a sailing charters among the islands of Sicily. The island of Pantelleria is endowed with a jagged coastline bathed by clear blue sea, that hides a wealth of varied marine life: its rocky slopes, fashioned by dry stone walling into terraces fit for cultivation, together with the local dammusi (typical kind of house) combine to confer upon the place an exceptional and unique beauty. The distinctive colours of the soil and base rock, which for the most part are basaltic, have earned the island a nickname, namely the black pearl of the Mediterranean”.

Pelagie Islands The Pelagie Islands name is a name of Greek origin, literally translates as ‘High-Sea Islands’. They lie about 200km off the coast of Agrigento, between Malta and Tunisia. The archipelago comprises Lampedusa, the main island with a surface area of 33 square kilometers, and the two smaller Linosa and Lampione. The latter, desert and only accommodating a lighthouse, with its steep walls plunging to 60m depth and uncontaminated sea-floors, is a real paradise for divers and snorkellers. Pelagie Islands Archipelago and Pantelleria island is the itinerary we propose for a sailing vacation among untouched nature, natural thermal baths, crystal sea and amazing environment for a breathtaking sailing cruise between Italy And Africa.


Lampedusa
The island of LampedusaLampedusa is one of the most amazing destination for sailing yacht charters in the Mediterranean sea. The island of Lampedusa consists of a flat limestone platform which culminates, at the northern end, in a series of dramatic cliffs. The south coast, on the other hand, is jaggedly rugged as headlands alternate with small, precipitous creeks sheltering sandy beaches. Closer to Africa than it is to Italy, the island is surrounded by a spectacular seascape, with incredible colors ranging from transparent-blue, to turquoise and emerald-green. An amazing destination for sailing holiday in the Mediterranean sea. On the island there is no farming activity, its soil being white, dry and stony, much alike a desert. The residents mostly live on tourism and fishing, as a considerable flight anchored at its sheltered harbor will testify.

Lampedusa Lampedusa is a paradise for snorkelers and divers who can enjoy a rich and unspoiled submerged world inhabited by corals, sponges, madrepores, the colored parrot-fish and, by Capo Grecale at only 50m depth, the lobster. Its mostly sandy sea-ground suddenly turns into a dark-green due to the posidonia, a marine plant that is known as the Mediterranean lung for its releasing oxygen in the water, giving life to beautiful underwater plains. The only city on Lampedusa, bearing the island’s same name, develops around the main Roma street, notably crowded at breakfast time and at night, it hosting a cluster of shops and cafés with outdoor tables, where, in the summer, live music or entertainment shows take place. Come and enjoy your sailing holiday in Lampedusa and in the Pelagie Islands: if you like sea, beach, and sun you will love Lampedusa.

Linosa
Linosa Linosais a pleasant volcanic island – hence its dark-grey color – with three lofty cones that show a striking contrast with the intense blue of the sky. The volcanoes, now extinct, give the island a fairly sinister look. The only town consists of a collection of lovely pastel-colored homes grouped around the island’s small harbor. Tourists can enjoy excursions to the peaks or fascinating boating tours. Its scanty population, once largely living by cattle-breeding, today is mostly engaged in tourism-related businesses. The Vulcano Mount, measuring 186 metres, is the island’s tallest peak.
Linosa Sailing the waters of Linosa we strongly recommend the boating tour of the Island. The ride departs from the harbor, and heads for the Fili, big offshore rocks that form a natural swimming pool, bounded, ashore, by an impressive rocky cliff eroded by atmospheric agents. Shifting waters and caper bushes are the main features of the landscape. Past these rocks, there is a sight of the lighthouse lying on an enchanting coastal strip. Towards the end of the tour is Cala Pozzolana, a beach enclosed by steep rocky walls with colors varying from yellow to red. Come to discover Linosa Island and all the Pelage islands: crystal sea wonderful bays and untouched nature make of this one of the favorite destination of all the South Med.

Pantelleria
Pantelleria is an island Pantelleriaof volcanic origin, belonging to Sicily but very close to the coast of Tunisia. Pantelleria is an amazing destination for sailing vacation and a wonderful stop for relaxing among your Sicily island sailing cruise. The opaque blackness of the lava rocks contrasts sharply with the deep blue sea which, in places, appears an emerald green. The coastline is interrupted by little, delightfully secluded creeks, ravines and intriguing caves. Starting out from Pantelleria, a clockwise tour of the island will first reveal the jagged and low-lying north cost; in the area of Cuddia Randazzo, the rocks assume strange black profiles which can be construed as figures of animals or other weird creatures.
Pantelleria There follows a series of inlets and caves, perfect for swimming. Then comes the Arco dell’Elefante (see above) and a further succession of caves and hollows divided by pillars of lava. The most dramatic grottoes are situated between Punta Duca and Punta Polacca, however these can only be fully explored by the smallest craft: Grotta del Duce, Grotta del Formaggio and Grotta della Pila dell’acqua. This is the most spectacular stretch of the island’s coast, with its towering great cliffs reaching far into the sky and large monolithic rocks pointing sharply out of the sea until, at last, the drama culminates with a view of Saltalavecchia. Crystal sea, amazing nature natural thermal baths and good gastronomy for your unforgettable sailing cruise in the Sicilian islands.
