A holiday in Lampedusa
This island on the border between two worlds is one of the most evocative destinations offered by the Liberty Lines fleet. An oasis in the middle of the Mediterranean whose crystal-clear waters embrace pristine white sandy beaches and rocky coves with breathtaking seabeds. Explore the Isola dei Conigli (Rabbit Island) – awarded one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – and the entire nature reserve to the south of the island, in search of sea turtles, or sail its coasts to discover caves and tortuous ravines accessible only by sea, spotting the species of dolphins that populate its waters.
Unspoilt sea and wonderful seabeds
Lampedusa is the largest of the Pelagie Islands, an archipelago also formed by the volcanic and bewitching Linosa and by the uninhabited and wild islet of Lampione. With its approximately six thousand inhabitants it is the most southern territory and village in Italy. In particular, Punta Sottile, a very thin and fascinating strip of land that is lost in the sea, is the southernmost point of the island and the Bel Paese. Here, close to the 35th North parallel, the weather conditions favour hot and generally very dry summers, even if on the whole quite windy.
In fact, the continuous blowing of the winds, thanks also to the island’s low elevation, helps to mitigate and stabilize the summer’s hot climate. The island has an international airport and two ports on opposite coasts. Getting to Lampedusa is all in all quite simple, especially in summer, when flights are put on to some of the main airports in Italy and maritime connections are faster thanks to hydrofoils.
