This fish-shaped island is a natural oasis basking just 250 meters from the southern Sicily coast. It once housed the old tuna fishing warehouses, where nets were stored. The remains of an old Spanish fortress still stand stoically amid the brush. It is now a haven for birds and marine life who revel in the clean sea and undisturbed atmosphere.

The beaches on the island are sugary-sand and sun-drenched. Swim over to enjoy a day away from the crowds. There are also some reefs that are popular with divers and snorkelers. The panoramas of the sea and the coastline are fantastic from this vantage point.
