Ferries to the Pelagian Islands: the best offers on Ok-Ferry!
The Pelagian Islands, between Sicily and Tunisia, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, represent the very last piece of Italian land before the African coasts. The three islands which the archipelago constitutes of are Lampedusa, widely known for the incomparable beauty of its shores and the colourful sea, Linosa, whose dark ground is framed by the intense green of the vegetation and the blue of the sea, and Lampione, the smallest one, which is also uninhabited. The three islands are embraced by the marine protected area.
The ferries to the Pelagian Islands sail from Porto Empedocle, on the southern coast of Sicily, towards the two main islands. The transport service is operated throughout the year by at least one sailing a day; during summer, hydrofoils are running too, so many more sailings become then available. The sailings between the two islands are performed by both ferries and hydrofoils. The Ferry Companies managing the connections are actually 2.
