This is one of my family's favorite hikes. About a 35 minutes hike down to the sea, but as you walk you smell the pines heated under the sun. The views are beautiful and the sea is quiet and pristine. The walk is a bit tough for the elderly, but if you take your time you won't be disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed this beach. It was not as highly rated as Spiaggia dei Conigli beach but we were very happy to have visited, as it is really beautiful, and a bit emptier than Conigli beach

This is the most beautiful place in Lampedusa. In respect of rabbit beach this is wilder and hidden. I suggest to everyone would feel the real spirit of this wonderful island.

After visiting the other beaches this one was a bit disappointing. The trek to get there is incredibly beautiful but on arrival you realise the pebbly beach is very small and it's a hot spot for jellyfish.

A very good alternative to the rabbit beach you can reach this place from the main road (be prepared to walk a bit) or from the rabbit beach itself by climbing the hills and walking the cliffs. Once you are there the view is great.

If you rent a small boat, here you can have a really refreshing dive, in turquoise water similar to tropical or caribbean sea. Take your fins and mask, there is a lot of small fishes!

It is a fairly rugged 30 minute hike down to the beach form the road . There is no food/services anywhere around here. The beach has just a bit of sand (usually covered in dried seaweed), but is mostly rocks. Plenty of plants growing in the shallow water. Definitely preferred Rabbit Beach.
