Rabbit beach, Lampedusa

Located on the little island of Lampedusa, 176 km (109 miles) south west of Sicily, Rabbit beach is named after its original inhabitants. Lampedusa is actually closer to the coast of North Africa than it is any other part of Italy and the weather certainly reflects this; rain is rare and summer temperatures can reach 40°C, that's well over 100°F. Of course with its remoteness, getting to the island is quite a challenge in itself and this ensures Rabbit beach never becomes as busy as it might. Rated the best beach in the world by TripAdvisor users in 2014 there is no doubting the attractions of this little beach; crystal clear azure waters, white sand, beautiful (if a little barren) surroundings and relative tranquility. It also lies in marine reserve which is home to loggerhead turtles. However, we feel, given the competition from all the other amazing beaches out there, this rating was a little too much.
