The landscape of the Island of Alicudi is intact. It is one of those places where time seems to have stopped forever. Alicudi is an island that has a history of looting and invasions by different peoples whose final result was the beauty and peace of the places. This island is a miniature paradise, a place where man and nature know how to coexist.
There are no roads but you only move on foot along steep mule tracks that from the port run through the island, until you reach the summit.
It was only in 1990 that a landing place was built which also allowed medium or large boats to dock. Before that it was only possible to arrive by small rowing boats, both for people and for goods.
The inhabitants of the island are very few and there are only a couple of grocery stores and the post office. Nothing else. There are no ATMs, pharmacies and bank offices, trendy clubs, pubs, discos. And this is precisely the charm of Alicudi: living off the essentials and the beauty of nature.
The Port area is also the center of the island where there is a pebble beach.
Pianicello area, at an altitude of 450m, is a small district where the population is German-speaking and lives on the island almost all year round.
The Tonna district where you can admire the authentic Aeolian architecture with steps built with dry stone walls to make the land arable.
Contrada Sgurbio, 5 houses, which is the most isolated area, almost inaccessible by land.
Not far from the port of Alicudisi, reachable by sea, is the Bazzina beach, a small enchanting cove.
