Sailing holidays to the Aeolian islands: travel tips
A short collection of the most useful travel tips to better deal with a sailing holiday in the Aeolian Islands.
There are many questions that afflict people who face sailing holidays in the Aeolian Islands for the first time. From the most practical such as “What to pack” or “Will I suffer from seasickness?” to the more intimate and personal ones like “Will I be able to adapt to life with other unknown people?” “What do I need to know to travel safely?”.
All questions more than normal to which we thought to answer with a small but focused guide on what is really important to know when you choose to take a trip at sea.
Without forgetting that the experience at sea is above all freedom, it is to completely immerse yourself in a different way to live the day, lulled by the sea and caressed by the wind.
This is what really matters and we would like it to remain well imprinted within you.
Travel tips for a boat holiday in the Aeolian Islands: what to pack
The suitcase should be soft to better fit the interior of the boat. A duffel bag will be fine and the smaller it is, the more space will remain for you!
Clothing: costumes, light clothing, better if shorts and t-shirt. Something heavier for the evening, a long trousers and a sweatshirt can not miss.
You must always wear a windbreaker even in the middle of summer, preferably with a hood (in the unfortunate case of rain!).
Boat shoes are not needed and above all are to be avoided for reasons of hygiene, so usually you are barefoot or you can bring shoes affixed to use only in the boat.
Of course, a pair of shoes or slippers will be used for trips to the mainland.
Products for hygiene and body care
Everything you usually use for care and hygiene: from soap to shampoo, preferably biodegradable for a lower impact on the environment.
Sunscreen is indispensable and better if with a high level of protection.
Not to forget at home
There are some items and products that are really indispensable, so don’t forget them at home:
- basic medicines
- identity document
If you are a fan of snorkeling or do not want to miss the beauty of the seabed, we recommend that you bring mask, snorkels and fins.
Rock shoes can also be useful, both for marine excursions and for use on rocky beaches.
Mobile phone, tablet or other electronic devices can safely be recharged on board: directly in your cabin with 12v current (you need the car charger) or at the outlets of the chart table (here you can attach the traditional battery chargers to 220v).
