The “Isola Delle Correnti” is a small island of Sicily, situated on the Ionic sea coast, on the territory of Portopalo, extended on aproximatly 1000 m2 and maximum 4m high from the sea level.
It is connected to land by an artificial arm, that was destroyed several times by the waves.
When the low tide transforms the island into a peninsula, it represents the southern extreme point of the Sicilian island. Decades ago in the lighthouse situated on this small island used to live the lighthouse keeper with his family. From 1987 the island is considered a natural reserve.
