Ferries to Pelagie Islands

The Pelagie Islands are found in the Mediterranean Sea, between Malta and Tunisia with Sicily to the north. They are some of Italy’s most beautiful islets, comprising Lampedusa, Linosa and the uninhabited Lampione.

They are an ideal destination for beach lovers, with Lampedusa’s ‘Isola dei Conigli’ frequently voted in the world’s top ten list. Alongside Linosa’s beach, it is one of the last remaining Loggerhead Turtle egg laying areas in the Mediterranean.

Be sure to try some fresh, local seafood at one of the excellent restaurants on Lampedusa. Or simply wander through the idyllic town in search of a small, pretty church called ‘Madonna Di Lampedusa’.

Linosa is a smaller island with three volcanoes, so it offers picturesque black sandy beaches. It is a great place to come for lunch, as it has some charming and authentic trattorias in the main town.

Lampione is the smallest and only uninhabited island. However, it offers fantastic scuba diving opportunities, as it boasts colourful coral, lobsters and crystal clear water. Dives can be organised at one of the many diving schools on Lampedusa.

The islands are situated close to North Africa, therefore they are home to similar wildlife. You're likely to come across whip snakes, Eleonora and Barbary falcons, crested cormorants and yellow-legged gulls.

The ferry route takes you between Lampedusa and Linosa, with a few crossings provided every day lasting around one hour. The route is operated by Ustica Lines, who provides high-speed and comfortable ferries, making it even easier to explore the beautiful Pelagie Islands.

    The ferry was comfortable, clean and punctual. I marked down the catering because, as far as I remember, there wasn't any

  • "Fast ferry, but be sure to get out at your stop in time!"

    The ferry was good, fast, punctual enough, spacious and comfortable. But we (and couple others) had "funny" problem. We went to lower deck and when our stop came they announced it adding "stay in your seats", so we stayed. After very short stop (no people were getting out around us) ferry went on to the next stop. Thank God that it was very near and it was the last stop, so we could come back with the same ferry rather fast.

  • "Plain Sailing"

    A utilitarian ferry service completely at odds with the glamour and drama of the islands it serves. If, like me, you were anticipating the time on board being a joyous and memorable part of your holiday then you're in for a disappointment. These are working ferries providing a service to locals and we tourists are just tagging along. Think Staten Island and you'll be close to the mark. But they're frequent, pretty reliable, and they get the job done with the minimum of fuss. And all the Aeolians are so beautiful you'll have completely forgotten about the ferry within moments of landing. So, the opposite of the memorable experience I was anticipating, but just as useful for all that. So get your tickets bought and see the beautiful, dreamy, wafty, Aeolians. And buy your tickets at the quayside. There's no shortage of spaces and they're much cheaper than online.
