The islands of the Aeolian archipelago to discover
It is the largest and best known island of the archipelago and is considered a jewel for its beautiful coves and the color of the sea that takes infinite shades of blue.
Its name seems to derive from the name of the hot foehn wind blowing from the west, but it is also known as “the big butterfly on the sea” because it was defined in relation to its shape.
The coasts are particularly suitable for bathing lovers, offering beaches of fine sand but also many sandy pebble coves reachable by sea.
Cala rossa, Cala Azzurra, Lido di Burrone, Punta lunga, the Faraglioni and Punta Sottile are perfect places for water activities such as snorkeling and diving, and from which you can admire exceptional sunsets.
Favignana is rich in open-air tuff quarries, often visible also from the sea that give it a characteristic red color.
The rocky areas such as Grotta Perciata, Cavallo, Punta Fanfalo and Bue Marino are perfect for those who love diving and the sea caves, such as the Grotta dei Sospiri are a must.
The tourist port of Favignana is ideal to immerse yourself in the tradition of the island with the opportunity to taste typical dishes and take a walk between the two squares of the village, a small and characteristic center.
Levanzo is the most rocky of the islands of the archipelago, as well as the smallest.
It is rich in beaches of stones and sand, full of charm and rather secluded: Cala Fredda, more convenient for the presence of a pebble beach and a slide, and the wild Cala Minnola particularly suitable for snorkeling and diving given the depths ranging from 27 to 30 meters.
The cove of Cala Dogana is located in the south of the island, near the port; a lovely pebble beach surrounded by a very picturesque environment.
The seabed is in fact the jewel in the crown of the island! Especially for lovers of underwater archeology.
The Grotta del Genovese is a prehistoric cave with the most important cave paintings found in Italy, dating back to the Paleolithic and Neolithic times.
It is the most mountainous, wooded and distant among all the islands of the archipelago.
Precisely these characteristics and its impervious nature, have left it almost intact by the intervention of man, and have maintained its vegetation and fauna unchanged.
The island is rich in caves emerged and submerged as the Cave of Thunder or the Crib with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites.
The particular morphology of the island means that there are very few beaches reachable by land and that the sea way is the best way to reach otherwise inaccessible places: the Cala Bianca, for example, with its small basin, and Punta Troia with its wonderful pebble beach.
The islet of Formica and the Scoglio del Maraone
A small strip of land whose name derives from the particular presence of ants on the rocks filled with a rather viscous plant.
It is located between Levanzo and Trapani, and is about 7 kilometers from the coast. The area is really small, only 30 square miles.
The islet of Formica is still an old trap that recalls the presence of the second trap of the entire archipelago. Although small, the island also houses a museum that preserves an ancient boat that was once used for the slaughter and several amphorae. a small church where fishermen went to pray, is still visible today and welcomes therapeutic community.
The archipelago also includes the small rock of Maraone, flat and about 600 meters long, not far from the island of Formica.
