STROMBOLI: THE MAGIC OF
THE AEOLIAN ISLANDS
Stromboli is a must-see of your holiday in Sicily on a luxury yacht charter. Located to the north of the archipelago, the island and the nearby islet of Strombolicchio are a pearl of the sea, exuding a timeless atmosphere.
A charter cruise in the Aeolian Islands (Alicudi, Filicudi, Lipari, Panarea, Salina, and Vulcano) stirs strong emotions. The natural attractions of this archipelago draw scientists from all over the world.
Marked by the volcano that lends it its name, Stromboli offers its few inhabitants and the pleasure cruisers that stop here in the summer the incredible spectacle of the sciara del fuoco, a steep slope made of lava. The constant volcanic activity with moderate explosions and outpourings of lava inspires a mix of fear and awe that enchants even the less brave.
Stromboli’s most beautiful beaches
Presenting powdery black beaches of volcanic origin, Stromboli is the perfect site to drop anchor and appreciate the sea for a few days or, for active travellers, hike up its lovely panoramic trails. Some of the best retreats to discover on a yacht holiday in the Aeolian Islands exploring Stromboli’s shores are:
– Forgia Vecchia, a beach of black pebbles located at the foot of the volcano and approachable only by the sea
– Scari boasting a spectacular view of the outcrop of Strombolicchio
– Ficogrande, a popular tourist getaway, made of black pebbles and sand
– Punta Vena affording hours of total relaxation by the grey granite coast and away from the action of other crowded spots
– Piscità, covered in volcanic pebbles and fine black sand.
The tiny hamlet of Ginostra is Stromboli’s highlight, a real treat for those who love to visit natural formations and exciting snorkelling experiences. Approachable only by the sea, the pools of Ginostra form a natural lagoon affording moments to unwind and have a bath. For an even more riveting experience, better if made on a yacht, choose the tour of Spiaggia Lazzaro. You can reach a natural grotto and swim in total freedom, gazing up at the archipelago’s most striking natural arch.read more
