THE HEART OF
THE AEOLIAN ISLANDS
Lipari is the biggest and busiest of the Aeolian Islands and also the main transportation hub of the area. Its municipality administers most of the islands that make up the archipelago, including Vulcano, Stromboli, Filicudi, and Alicudi. With a mountainous interior, rugged coastline, and pristine waters, Lipari is the epitome of Mediterranean beauty. The island is renowned for the obsidian quarries of Canneto and dramatic scenery that can be enjoyed from its numerous panoramic headland walks. In the distance, the pumice caves cast a characteristic turquoise hue on the surroundings. The island has also a good offer of cultural sites to enjoy perhaps on less sunny days, such as the Archeological Museum and Park, and the Acropolis.
Lipari is the largest island of the Aeolian archipelago that comprises Alicudi, Filicudi, Panarea, Salina, Stromboli, and Vulcano. A luxury charter cruise in Sicily affords the perfect occasion to appreciate the feel of a unique and cosmopolitan land of unforgettable landscapes. Like the scenic spot Belvedere di Quattrocchi that looks out across the sea to the faraglioni and the island of Vulcano, and the fortified Castle rising dramatically from a steep cliff above the sea.
The Aeolian Islands on a charter: Lipari’s retreats and nightlife
Lipari appeals both to travellers seeking the quiet of sea and nature, and to those who love the nightlife. Dreamy retreats, like the beaches of Porticello and Papesca, lay next to old pumice quarries.
There is plenty of secluded coves like spiaggia di Vinci, an excellent snorkelling site, and dreamy beaches like Bianca.
Experiencing Lipari on one of Silver Star Yachting’s luxury boats for hire means treating oneself to all the comforts, while enjoying the beauty of a special island before continuing, if you so wish, on your itinerary, discovering the best beaches of eastern Sicily, La Dolce Vita, or even exploring the island’s stunning sea on an unforgettable cruise.
