Isola delle Correnti, Currents Island, is a small round shaped island that separates the Ionian coast from the Gulf of Sicily, extended for about 10,000 m2 with a maximum height of 4 m above sea level. It is connected to the mainland by an artificial arm. When low tide transforms the island into a peninsula, it becomes the extreme south point of Sicily. On the island stands a rectangular lighthouse, in front of a large square. Here in the past lived the the lighthouse keeper and his family. The lighthouse is today in decay, being for years in disuse. Plant life is not abundant, otherwise the island is plenty of of wild leek, capers and other shrubs typical of the Mediterranean scrub. In the past, the island was a tourist destination due to the presence of clay used as a cosmetic product for the skin, since 1987 the island has been included in the plan of the parks and nature reserves.
