The islands are ideal places to breathe in some clean air and experience some nature away from the city smog.


If you still haven't decided on your travel destination, you've come to the right place!

Sicily is full of wonderful islands, so we have compiled a list to help you decide which one is right for you:


We begin with the renowned Aeolian Islands.

  • Lipariis the largest island, and the one from which it is easiest to travel for excursions to the other islands. As you might expect, the main attractions are the beaches and nature: bays, caves and magical coves!


  • Volcanois the closest island to Sicily, it is located just 12 miles from Capo Milazzo and is made up of four volcanoes, the largest of which is the Vulcano della Fossa Fairly small in size, it is very easy to visit it all by scooter or bicycle.


  • SalinaThe jewel of the Aeolian Islands. Second largest, Salina was the location for the famous film 'Il postino' by Massimo Troisi. Full of small villages, churches and typical locales, the best known place is the Fossa delle Felci, a crater covered with vegetation, a favourite destination for excursions.


  • Panareaa small island with a timeless charm. The island is surrounded by a series of rocks and islets that form a kind of mosaic of rocks and coves. Among its marvellous beaches, there is Cala Junco: a real natural swimming pool where the colours of the water mingle with the green of nature.


  • Alicudi and Filicudiare the easternmost islands of the Aeolian Islands and are undoubtedly the 'wildest' islands where the terrain is overlooked by extinct craters and lush sea beds. Time seems to have stood still on Alicudi and Filicudi, where it is possible to get around on foot or with mules.


  • StromboliA very popular destination, the island takes its name from the active volcano that rises over 900 m above sea level. In addition to the natural beauty, a point of interest is undoubtedly the famous square of San Vincenzo from which it is possible to admire 'Strombolicchio', an islet declared a nature reserve.


  • Egadi IslandsFavignana, Levanzo and Marettimo: Favignana, the pearl of the Egadi Islands is the ideal destination to rest and enjoy your holiday. Total relaxation between swimming, snorkelling or walking through the vegetation.   Levanzo is the smallest of the Egadi Islands. A boat trip here is obligatory to get to know the island well and to reach attractions such as the Faraglione. Among the three, Marettimo is the wildest, unmissable destination for trekkers.
  • Finally, the Pelagie IslandsLampedusa, Isola dei Conigli, Linosa.

Lampedusa, known the world over for its crystal-clear waters. Among the bays not to be missed is Cala Creta, a very romantic place that can be reached on foot. Of course, there is no shortage of cultural attractions, such as Casa Teresa or the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Porto di Salvo. The fame of Rabbit Island precedes it. The beach is one of the most beautiful thanks to its transparent water and lush fauna. Suffice it to say that it is the favourite spawning ground for the caretta-caretta. To conclude Linosawhite cottages typical of the island, quaint places, real natural pools. There is no shortage of footpaths and breathtaking landscapes.
