The Pelagie Islands (Italian Isole Pelagie), from the Greek pelaghi meaning high sea, are the three small volcanic islands of Lampedusa, Linosa, and Lampione, located in the Mediterranean Sea between Malta and Tunisia, south of Sicily.
Of particular ecological concern in the islands is the protection of the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta) which is endangered throughout the Mediterranean as a result of its nesting sites being taken over by tourism. In Italy the beaches of Pozzolana di Ponente on Linosa and Isola dei conigli on Lampedusa are the last remaining sites where the turtle regularly lays its eggs. The Area Marina Protetta Isole Pelagie nature reserve, covering all three islands, was instituted in 2002.

Situées dans le canal de Sicile, les îles Pelagie sont composées de Linosa, Lampedusa et Lampione. Elles se trouvent au SSE de Pantelleria et à l'WSW de Malte.
Elles sont toutes basses et, en majeure partie dépourvues de végétation. Il n'y a aucun port ou mouillage sûr excepté Lampedusa.

L'isola più grande è Lampedusa, con circa 20 km² di superficie ed è anche la più popolosa delle tre (5000 abitanti). La seconda isola per estensione è Linosa, mentre la più piccola è la disabitata Lampione.
