  • After the rabbits, there is the path down to the Cove, at first shady and pretty sweet. Then a few steepest section and in the Sun (so even in flip flops) and in 30 minutes you will arrive at the Cove. Beautiful, bring all things because there's anything (food, water, cream, etc.). Arrive early in the morning so you're in the front row on the sand, otherwise behind the rocks is kinda awkward. Beautiful, clear water (under the sand) and even lower for a while. Perhaps less known but more beautiful than the renowned rabbit Island, one of the most beautiful of Lampedusa. Strenuous ascent under the harsh, wet first, and then get the path under the Sun to 40° degrees dry!

  • A place like few a lovely Cove, but what surprised me most was the path to get there, almost linking fairy dolls and elves. A landscape that is totally different from that seen in the rest of the island. Not to be missed!

  • I was early September in Lampedusa and to be honest it seemed that nobody advised not to Miss absolutely this other cala. So just out of sheer curiosity my boyfriend and I decided to go and see. We walk along a path that we thought was equal to that to get off the island of rabbits, but rather the way we realize that is infinite! But dear travellers ... as soon as you arrive to see the colors of the sea ... is a breathtaking Sight! The trail can be covered in about 25 minutes on foot to step from military! You can also walk at a leisurely pace and employing some more ... then I highly comfortable shoes closed if possibile...ma even in flip-flops along the same! Don't be cmq Miss plenty of water because you were at the beach there is nothing ... only silence and relaxed people and a quiet beautiful! Try again to catch the day where algae do not ruin the landscape, maybe take some advice from some old fisherman! In conclusione...la Sicily is gorgeous!
