The archipelago of Egadi Islands is a flourishing, as yet unspoilt holiday destination. Each island has its own distinct characteristics, but all of them share the same irresistible, crystalline waters that surround their Marine Reserve, one of the largest and most various in Europe.
Favignana is the largest and maybe most popular, largely thanks to its crystalline azure waters and unique bays such as Cala Rossa. Dramatic limestone cliffs plummet towards the cobalt-blue sea, endless panoramas abound, and mountain paths offer wonderful walking. Marettimo is largely untouched by tourism, unspoilt in its waters and its land nature, and so the island is a
real hideaway – a quiet, sleepy place for most of the year.
Its coastline is one of dramatic charm: numerous sea caves puncture the plunging, precipitous dolomitic cliffs as they meet the sea, as Grotta del Cammello, which hosts a pebbly beach and the remains of a Roman settlement. Levanzo, the smallest, but no less inviting, it’s a very hilly islet – much of the coastline is made upof dramatic rocky cliffs, though there are a few lovely beaches. Everything here is essential, yet adorable: there’s one village (Cala Dogana), one road, two shops, two hotels and two restaurants. Peace and quiet are ensured and stressful city life soon becomes a distant memory.
The Egadi Islands are perfect for real sailors and for who is looking for untouched nature. With clear waters and heavy winds, it is ideal for all levels of sailors. When you will be on your boat, you will be amazed with the crystal clear waters and the picturesque cliffs that you will see.
