  • In order to access them, as well as by sea, you can get hiking among woods and pine forests, of medium difficulty we recommend the use of sneakers. Limpid but very little Beach, go there early in the morning.

  • Beautiful and pleasant nature walk to discover a Bay where the boats appear suspended in nothing for the transparency of waters.

  • Lampedusa appears flat and barren at first impression. Devoid of greenery, trees. You wouldn't expect to find a wood instead, through which you get to cala pulcino. Looking at it from the sea cala pulcino leaves only minimally to assume that behind it hides a lot of green and a truly challenging trail on foot. The trail that winds on the left of the main road that crosses longitudinally the island, it doesn't seem very challenging in its initial part; as you descend in altitude and the difficulty increases. It is necessary to wear hiking boots trekking type to play it safe. After a challenging descent of about 3/4 of an hour you finally reaches the beautiful Creek whose bottom is not like the other, but sand pebbles. The ascent is obviously far more demanding of the climb. For those who don't have time or desire to suffer so much, but it's a nice diversion to try at least once, all that remains is to enjoy the sight of cala chick with a stop at anchor off the boat, definitely more comfortable and scenic.
