Enjoy the beaches

It seems obvious but we can not start talking about fantastic beaches on the island: just mention the Beach of the Rabbits one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, to make any further word superfluous. However, there are other worthy beaches, most of which are located in the south of the island: visiting a different one every day of your holiday.

Visit the Marine Turtle Recovery Center

Just in the perspective of preserving marine flora and fauna carried by the Reserve there is the important contribution of the WWF Retrieval Turtle and Wildlife Recovery Center . In this small center WWF volunteers perform both sensitization and retrieval of turtles and other endangered aquatic animals.

Lampedusa is a famous reproduction point of sea turtles : On the beach of the Rabbit Island they lay their turtle-shaped turtle eggs, which periodically (usually around July) open by generating a fleet of small tartarounds that make their mad ride to the sea.

Among the things to do in Lampedusa I recommend a visit to Turtle Group of Lampedusa to see how the volunteers work, to observe closely the turtles here in convalescence and to leave an offer to support this service [19659004]  sea turtle retrieval center lampedusa

Rent a mehari

One of the most fun and adventurous activities in Lampedusa is to rent a mehari and go to the discovery of the island on the four wheels with the wind between the

The mehari are small, non-roofed, colorful and plastic-looking cars : not the utmost of security but perfect to ride comfortably on the island even as a group as they lead to 5 people, even considering that Lampedusa is so small that it can not be fired with anything other than these means and scooters.

On board a mehari you can also explore the north side of the island , that with high cliffs that can only be admired from the sea if you are on a boat tour around Lampedusa.

Stop at Cape Grecale Lighthouse

The fascination of the headlights is unquestionable and even Lampedusa can boast one of its own. Cape Grecale Lighthouse is located to the north of the cliff-lined island, serving as a sight and reference point for boats sailing off Lampedusa.

This place is quiet, surrounded by a rare, pungent and almost absent vegetation, a place of introspection to get in touch with the sea and nature and let the breath of the sea and the island into itself.
