Island of Rabbits – Isola dei Conigli

The Isle of Rabbits is located just a few metres from Lampedusa’s west coast, right next to a beautiful sandy beach.

Contrary to what some may think, there is no evidence of rabbits on this small piece of wild and rocky land. However, it is easier to find loggerhead turtle eggs laid on the beach nearby. Because it is so close to the Island, Spiaggia dei conigli is called “Rabbits Beach” and it is one of the last nesting sites for this rare reptile.

The name of the Island and its namesake beach are actually a result of a misinterpretation of an ancient cartography. It reported Rabit Island’s name, which was incorrectly translated from the English word Rabbit (coniglio).

Most likely, the term “rabbit” is not used to refer to a small animal. It is derived from an Arabic phoneme that is very similar. This can be translated as “connection” with reference the isthmus, which sometimes runs between the coast and the islet.

No matter what name you choose, one thing is certain in this idyllic paradise: the triumph of nature’s magnificence, the beauty of beaches, the view, and the incredible crystal-clear water that transforms into a natural swimming pool.
