The island of turtles

The Pelagie Islands comprise the southernmost strip of land, and it is no coincidence that the Greek philosopher Herodotus called them the "high-sea islands".

The archipelago was the landing point for the Phoenician, Greek, Roman, Saracen and Crusader fleets seeking fresh water. Famous is the July 1551 shipwreck of Admiral Andrea Doria's naval squadron, which saw the loss of the lives of a thousand men.

The three islands that comprise the archipelago - Lampedusa, Linosa and the deserted Lampione - are all geologically different from each other. The first and last are part of the African continental platform, while Linosa is the emerged peak of a dormant volcano.

Thrilling coves and reefs, crystal-clear and pristine seas, beaches like that of Conigli (amongst the most beautiful in the world), make the Pelagie Islands a place with a soul in which nature reigns.
Indeed, together with Calabria, this is the only site in Italy where the Caretta Caretta​​ sea turtles reproduce.
