We will depart at around 08:30 from Taormina Bay sailing direction Aeolian Archipelago, passing the strait of Messina and reaching our first destination, Vulcano Island. With its 2 craters, clear waters, black sand, hot springs and muds, Vulcano is an island of wilderness and the ideal destination for a charter in the Aeolian Islands. We will sail and reach The black beaches of Gelso, The Horse Cave, the Pool of Venus, the Cove Mastro Minico, the West Bay and finally Cala Formaggico. After visiting Vulcano, we will reach Lipari port at sunset.
Lipari Island is separated from Vulcano by a small channel of 1,5 kilometers. Lipari is the largest Island in the Aeolian Archipelago with a large and safe harbor. Just a few steps from the port, you will find the old fishermen town, with its Castle and the Archaeological Museum. In Lipari, you will also find several shops and restaurants that offer a fantastic fresh fish meal accompanied by the famous Malvasia wine, produced only from the vineyards of this Island. Lipari is also famous for its Pumice Stones and for its white sandy beaches. In Lipari we will sail direction Pumice Quarries, The Arc of Pietralunga, the sandy Bay of Vallemura and the Canneto.
Panarea; the smallest of the whole Archipelago and surrounded by several smaller islands, is very famous in Italy for its nightlife during the summertime when many famous worldwide DJs come here to play on the island discos and bars. Panarea is rich in Mediterranean vegetation and hides many bays and inlets to anchor for a nice swim, like in Basiluzzo and Bottaro with its sulfurous waters. We will sail to Dattilo and Lisca Bianca, passing St Peter and the Palomba Caves arriving in the fantastic Bay of Cala Junco. In the late afternoon, we will sail to Stromboli Ginostra for an aperitif and dinner on board at the Sciara del Fuoco. We will spend the night anchored at Stromboli.
If Panarea is considered the smallest Island, Stromboli is for sure considered the most captivating. Thank to its active volcano with continuous eruptions, visible from the sea in front of the famous Sciara del Fuoco, from where we will attend the spectacular natural event at sunset anchoring just a few meters from the lava coast of the Island. We will sail to Strombolicchio, a very little rock in the middle of the Aeolian Archipelago with a small lighthouse built on top of it. Stromboli host just 2 villages, Ginostra and Stromboli. Ginostra with its spectacular beach is located on the western side of the island with a small pier, mainly used for mooring the ferries; this small village is located on a cliff and will allow you to enjoy a fantastic view of the whole Aeolian Archipelago.
Salina is the second largest island of the Aeolian Archipelago after Lipari. Salina is also the richest in Mediterranean vegetation with two predominant mountains were the grapes of Malvasia wine and capers are cultivated. In Salina, we find 2 safe harbors, the Rinella harbor situated in a very picturesque area of the island and Santa Maria di Salina. In Salina, there is a small village called Lingua which is full of fresh fish restaurants and bar to taste the typical Sicilian Granita made in different flavors like watermelon, peach, pistachio, almond, coffee, lemon, fig, strawberry and chocolate. Circumnavigating the Island we will see the characteristic Bay of Pollara at sunset, Faro and the Punta Perciato Marine Arc. Salina is the cinematographic set of the famous movie “Il Postino” with Massimo Troisi and Philippe Noiret.
Filicudi Island, also known as Magic Island, is very small and remote and counts only 250 inhabitants with few shops and restaurants and just 2 harbors Filicudi and Pecorini. The tourism here is less developed than the other islands of the archipelago but this is also the reason to visit this fantastic ancestral Island. In Filicudi we find an imposing mountain of about 700 meters called Monte Felci generated by lava eruptions in the ancient times and a natural fortress called Capo Graziano were a Neolithic village is still present. The islands host the biggest grottos of the whole archipelago while the islets and the bays are only accessible by the sea. Filicudi is a perfect destination for divers because there are many Greeks remains and sunken vessel just under the waters of this part of the Aeolian Archipelago.
Alicudi is absolutely the wildest, remote and western island of the Aeolian Archipelago. Due to the conical shape of the island, there aren’t roads and cars while the donkey is still the only means of transport for the few inhabitants of this gem. Besides being so isolated, the island was already Inhabited by the Greeks, the Saracens pirates, the Romans and the Arabs. The Mediterranean vegetation of Alicudi is still untouched and the hidden bays are almost deserted, making the visit of Alicudi a real opportunity to step back in the past. We will leave Alicudi around 16:00 in order to be in Milazzo harbor at 20:00 or in Naxos harbor (Taormina Bay) at 22:00 for the end of this cruise.
