Discovering Italy’s southern Aeolian islands with Boataround

By Wednesday, 14 September 2022 14:57

Boataround, a leading boat rental platform, offers three itineraries that feature the queens of summer: the islands, and in particular the beautiful Aeolian Islands, real jewels set in seas of a thousand shades, for all those who, as Mark Twain said, want to “sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails, explore, dream, discover.”

Sailing among the 7 sisters

The Aeolian Islands, seven sisters united by the beauty of their blue sea off the coast of Sicily, are the ideal setting for a Mediterranean-flavored adventure to discover crystalline seas. Lipari and Vulcano are the first two you meet after a few hours of navigation from the Sicilian coast. The first is the largest and most famous of the archipelago and owes its fame to its enchanting black and white beaches. On bewitching Volcano, on the other hand, you will find black sand, thermal mud, and fumaroles from the island's still active volcano, which is responsible for the typical sulphur smell in the air. The itinerary continues to the three wildest islands of the Aeolian archipelago: Salina, Filicudi and Alicudi which have breathtaking panoramic views.

Tiny Panarea and a volcano

Sailing south you come to the more fashionable Panarea: a tiny pearl surrounded by the islets of Basiluzzo, Dattilo, Bottaro, and Spinazzola that cannot fail to enchant you with their beauty. The unmissable Stromboli is the final stop with 12 square kilometres of black sand that stretch into a deep blue sea. This little island is dotted with distinctive white houses and is home to the Iddu volcano, better known as Stromboli, which is still active today.
