THE CHARM OF
Alicudi is perhaps the most exclusively secluded paradise of the Aeolian archipelago. With only minimal facilities, no boutiques and no clubs, it truly is a place out of time. If your goal is to enjoy splendid isolation in the heart of nature, Alicudi is your dream destination.
Of the seven Sicilian sisters (Lipari, Filicudi, Panarea, Salina, Stromboli, and Vulcano) Alicudi is the only one that has preserved the archipelago’s purest essence, its animus loci. The steep shoreline makes it one of the less visited destinations of Sicily charter cruises, but the locations unscathed by mass tourism win the earth of the pleasure cruisers who appreciate the charm of wild nature, made even more ancestral-looking by the characteristic carpet of ivy that lends the island its old name of Ericussa.
What to see in Alicudi on a charter
If you’re seeking transparent waters and the silence of unspoiled nature on your luxury charter in the Aeolian islands, Alicudi will not disappoint. Pebbly beaches huddled below rocky arches (called Perciati), the rich marine and natural life near the Scoglio di Jalera, and the many reefs to explore on snorkelling adventures add to the charm and special nature of this island.
Hiring a luxury boat in the Aeolian islands lets you appreciate the intense beauty exuding from the unique features of each element of this archipelago. Alicudi calls for a spirit of adventure. Its steep unpaved narrow streets can be taken only by foot or on the back of donkeys, the beaches can be reached only by the sea, and the trekking trails twist up and down old stairs made of volcanic rock across a quaint and truly evocative landscape.
