Lampedusa is a big triangle, inclined from north to south, gone through by an asphalt road linking from end to end all the main locations you can reach by moped, car, or by the comfortable bus of the local transport company. However, Lampedusa must be visited on foot, the only way to reach some bays, while to reach other places it is necessary to travel by sea. Maintaining the asphalt road as a reference point (in summer it is torrid, so it is advisable to bring water and a cap), you can reach charming points like Cala Madonna (there is a small and shady garden), Cala Galera or the region of Albero Sole and of the stack, where you can admire the flights of Eleonora's Falcons.
Secchitella of Linosa can also be discovered without breathing apparatus, since the proximity of the coast makes it easy to reach it with a diving mask and flippers: it will remain a fleeting approach, even if it will make people sense the beauties of this shoal. Everything is different with the aqualung, and a simple push will be enough to sink along the multicolored walls of this rock by gliding without weight in a crystal-like water among clouds of ray's breams or anthias.
The site lies in zone A of the Marine Protected Area, which includes
most of the territory of the nature protected area of Lampedusa and, in
general, corresponds to the need to safeguard habitats of great nature
and landscape value.
"Riserva Naturale Orientata" Isola di Lampedusa (EUAP 1114) was established with D.D.A.A. 291/44, 16.5.95–533/44 11.8.95, and is managed by the Environmental Protection Association "Legambiente".
The perimeter of the nature reserve, lying in the territory of the Municipality of Lampedusa and Linosa, has been established by the regional plan regarding parks and reserves, approved with D.A. 970/91, plus a small area in the north of the Sanctuary of Madonna di Porto Salvo and within the area of Conigli Bay, our site of interest.
