The island of Vulcano is known for its volcanic manifestations such as fumaroles and thermal muds and for its characteristic black sand beaches and shallow waters, for an experience dedicated to wellness and relaxation.
While staying on the island, we recommend the Baia delle Sabbie Nere, a characteristic beach formed by volcanic sands, with shallow waters and clear waters, for bathing.
At the Vulcano Thermal Pool, you can enjoy a real wellness treatment thanks to the clayey mud with beneficial properties. To complete the route, we recommend the Baia delle Acque Calde, facing the mud, which constitutes a "natural hydromassage".
For the more adventurous, we recommend the possibility of climbing to the crater of the Volcano, a walk of about 2 hours in nature that will give you a breathtaking view of the island.
