The Pelagie Islands, which are called as isole Pelagie in Italian, lie in Agrigento province in Italy's Sicily region.
Comprising of four main islands, Lampedusa, Lampione, Rabbit Island and Linosa, this archipelago is located near Italy mainland's southern tip and is right in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, as depicted by its name Pelagie, which is derived from the Greek word, Pelagos for open sea.
The Pelagie Islands have a typical Mediterranean climate with pleasant winters and hot summers.
Apart from having fun swimming in clear blue waters and chilling out on the islands' various beaches, there are activities that visitors can enjoy.
For example, if you were to visit Linosa, the archipelago's second biggest island, you can see the nesting sites of shearwater, which is a type of bird and Carretta caretta turtles on the Pozzolan beach.
Also, there is Mount Volcano and the beauty of other volcanoes to be enjoyed in Linosa.
