Together with Lampedusa it is part of the Pelagie Islands. Although it has not as much tourism as its neighbouring Lampedusa, as time elapsed Linosa has grown on bigger groups that come to this volcanic island for a day. The island is basically speaking a volcano that has remained inactive for over 20 centuries. The island coasts are composed of black beaches and coves full of rocks, but its main attraction is the tranquility you get compared to the more crowded Lampedusa Island.
Where to Eat and Drink
The restaurant located at Linosa Club on Contrada Calcarella is recommendable. When high season is over prices are more affordable.
Trattoria de Anna on Via Vittorio Veneto is a lovely informal restaurant (trattoria) which is well liked by the islanders and outsiders.
