The beach is beautiful but very disappointed with stray dogs that barked a lot and bother 7 all the time and lots of topless ladies which was very inappropriate. Disappointed with that but loved the beach. Wearing tennis shoes is a must.

This beach is one of the reasons we went to Lampedusa. We were'nt dissapointed. It's great that it is part of a managed eco system, with indiginous plants being grown to compliment the area, and of course the laying site of the turtles. (This is why you can only have umbrellas on one part the beach). I consider myself reasonably... More

Aquamarine colours, clarity and calmness of the water are unbelievable! Beautiful soft sand. No seaweed, shells, stones. Just pure sand on sea bottom. Umbrella-free section for sun seekers. Can walk quite far in the water before it gets deep. Though no facilities right at the beach, great little cafe at the start of the 15 minute hike down to the... More

The path to the beach is really long and tiring, but it is rewarding to reach there, it is really charming beach the sea is shallow and white bluish water is really great

The water is crystal clear and not very deep. Great for snorkeling. We swam from our boat into the cove and were not anywhere near the people on the beach. The sand is delicious and you can see the wildlife swim near you. BEAUTIFUL.

We came to rabbit beach expecting one of the top two beaches on Earth but I couldn't see what made it better than other places in Lampedusa or in fact some of the beaches along the south coast of Sicily, the colour of the water is spectacular but thats the same all around Lampedusa. I'd recommend finding your own place... More

Rabbit beach is paradise on earth. I'd recommend renting a scooter whilst in Lampedusa, as it's the easiest and best way to get around the little island. Rabbit beach is about a 10 minute scooter ride from the centre and then about a 10 minute walk down to the beach. As you walk down towards the beach you come to... More

The beach is fantastic. The views and the colors are just unbelievable. However, lampedusa is quite difficult for non italian tourists. People do not speak english and there is not much to do.

Beautiful beach, crowded, go early or late, if you like rock hopping, go to the side of the beach, where the large rocks provide for some space away from the crowds.
