Situated in the Sicily Channel of the Mediterranean Sea, Linosa is one of the smallest islands belonging to the Pelagie Islands. Due to the relatively small population and size of the port, only two ferry routes leave Linosa; a crossing to Porto Empedocle in Sicily and to Lempedusa, another Italian island.
Linosa’s pulling power lies in the unusual colours that form the landscape, showcasing the low vegetation, black lava rocks, black coves, red mineral deposits and yellow clay areas. The island is regarded as the smaller, quieter version of Lampedusa, offering tranquil beaches and numerous places to swim amongst the emerald waters. Linosa is typically used as a peaceful haven where tourists can escape from the hustle of more populated areas; the sleepy, leisurely lifestyle makes it the ideal destination for a romantic getaway or a family holiday.
For a great diving spot, head to the deep blue seas of Sicchitella for the flora and fauna and shipwreck that frequent the waters. Other beaches are more accessible and are within walking distance of the town centre – Pozzolana is a favourite for the spectacular rock formations next to luxurious beaches.
The island is so small that it can comfortably be covered by foot in just over a day. The ferry port lies on the south coast of the island, with locals happy to direct any lost tourists.
Via Pozzolana, 92010 Lampedusa e Linosa AG
