Alicudi

The island of Alicudi offers an intact landscape and a particular setting. Time seems to have stopped and nature manifests itself in a miniature paradise, where man and nature coexist.

Stromboli

Stromboli is the most beautiful. It is an island with a volcano in a constant state of mild activity, punctuated by occasional larger and more violent eruptions. Although small lava eruptions are not dangerous, one must still be aware of the possible danger. Therefore, you should never climb the volcano without a local expert guide. Onboard our boat, you can safely watch the most incredible and unforgettable spectacle of the erupting Stromboli from the sea.

Salina

Salina is well known for three products: fish, capers and malvasia, the sweet dessert wine.
The sea of ​​the Island of Salina is simply wonderful. The water is extremely clean and is home to a large variety of marine animals, plants, caves and submerged volcanic craters. The bay of Pollara, where several scenes from the film Il Postino with Massimo Troisi were shot, is one of the most beautiful bays in the entire Aeolian archipelago.

Panarea

The port of San Pietro is a picturesque cobweb of white streets and is home to most of the island’s restaurants, bars and shops. In Panarea there are also enchanting coves and, in the southernmost point of the island, Cala Junco with transparent and crystalline waters is probably the most beautiful bay of all the Aeolian Islands.
