name, of greek origin, literally translates as ‘High-Sea Islands’.
They lie about 200km off the coast of Agrigento, between Malta and
Tunisia. The archipelago comprises Lampedusa, the main island with
a surface area of 33 square kilometres, and the two smaller Linosa
and Lampione. The latter, desert and only accommodating a lighthouse,
with its steep walls plunging to 60m depth and uncontaminated sea-floors,
is a real paradise for divers and snorkelers.
