The Italian island of Lampedusa is a much beloved vacation spot for visitors traveling there from nearby Malta, Tunisia and Sicily. The island is located in the most southern part of Italy and is home to some of the most beautiful vistas and breathtaking views in the entire region. The island of Lampedusa may only be 7.8 square miles in size and home to only about 4,500 people, but the island is definitely big in stature when it comes to gorgeous scenery.
Lampedusa is skirted by nothing but lovely beaches that look like they’re right out of the movies. Between the blue-green waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the rocky cliffs that jut up behind most of the island’s beaches, each stretch of sand is more picturesque than the last. So, you know a beach must be very special indeed to stand out among the beaches of Lampedusa. And Rabbit Beach certainly does that. When you first approach the beach from above there is a little lookout point where you can gaze down upon Rabbit Beach and out over the water. If the sand wasn’t so soft, warm and beautiful you could probably sit happily up at this vantage point for hours. But, this beach is worth tearing yourself away from that view. Rabbit Beach is one of THE best spots for snorkeling, period. The water is warm and clear, and there are plenty of sea creatures to check out even in the shallows, which extend for quite a ways. Beware of the jellyfish in this area though, there are always a few around.
