The small town of Linosa will surely surprise you for the bright colors of its houses: the small buildings are gathered together, with bright colors that contribute to make special the atmosphere of Linosa.
Here you can find some accommodation to stay, even among the inhabitants of the island who are used to rent rooms. In Linosa there is one unique road that leads to the most beautiful and fascinating places of the town: but you need to go there on foot or by bike, since in summer it is prohibited from landing in Linosa with your car.
The sea of Linosa has clear waters, which almost immediately reach high depths. In the fabulous coastline there are sandy volcanic beaches and very suggestive rocky ridges. Cala Pozzolana di Ponente, is a beautiful beach, often the destination of the loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) chosen to lay their eggs: its turquoise waters, clear and fresh, welcomes beautiful shoals of fish of different sizes.
Do not miss Punta Beppe Tuccio, a small promontory creating a small lagoon together with the smaller islands. Then, Grotta del Greco, on the eastern side of the island and the beach of Cala Pozzolana di Levante e Punta Calcarella located on the south side of Linosa.
If you go to Linosa you will surely enjoy the sea and the peace that reigns supreme. But despite the small size of the island, there is plenty to see on the mainland.
First, Mount Volcano worth a climb, with its summit at an altitude of 195 meters easily reachable through a path. The mountain is rich in vegetation, with typical Mediterranean scrub as well as large expanses of prickly pears.
From the summit, as well as having a complete view of the island, you can also find different species of birds using Linosa, during emigration periods, as a stopping point: the hawks and herons are definitely the most beautiful examples, but the most numerous are the Cory’s Shearwaters, large birds typical of Linosa arriving on the island during the breeding season.
