AEOLIAN ISLANDS: STROMBOLI PANAREA SALINA LIPARI SAILING ITINERARY

The Aeolian islands take their name from the god Aeolus, king of the winds.

He lived in Lipari, and could predict the weather by observing the shape of the clouds puffing from an active volcano, probably the Stromboli . Thanks to this ability, crucial for the islanders, who were mostly fishermen and needed to know the likely evolution of meteorological events, Aeolus gained great popularity in the archipelago, according to one theory, from what was a simple greek prince, skilled in predicting the weather from the clouds, fueled the myth of the god Aeolus, designed to take control of the winds.

Itinerary on sailboat - Aeolian islands

Alicudi

a few beaches are hidden amongst the tiny granite coves of the island, mainly in the south east near the hamlet of Bazzina. The island is amazing and can be visited by boat, it’s a great charter destination for the passionate divers. It is a place where you can enjoy perfect beach.   


Filicudi

The magnificent coasts are in places overlooking the sea while others are characterized by flat beaches as Capo Graziano. To fully enjoy all the beauties of Filicudi it is advised to use a boat, necessary to reach evocative glimpses, as Grotta del Bue Marino.


Lipari

This isle is the largest of the Aeolian Islands Its volcanic nature is revealed by its dominating colours: the white of the pomice-stones scattered all around the coastline and the black of the obsidian of Castellaccio Vecchio.


Pollara

speaking of beaches, Pollara is one of the most beautiful. Located in Salina, the second largest island in the archipelago. A lower crater lies just above sea level near the small village of Pollara,on the north west corner of the island, half of which has fallen into the sea.


Salina

From a distance Salina looks entirely green with two rounded high mountains and a smooth coastline. In stark contrast to the exposed volcanic terrain of the other Aeolian Islands, Salina boasts a lush, verdant landscape.


Stromboli

Right in front of the village, Strombolicchio is the trademark of the place: a huge rock sticking out from the sea, as high as a high-rise building. Geologists say it was the plug of the original volcano, spat into the sea. It is marvellous to reach it by boat.


Panarea

when you go yachting in Panarea waters, you find yourself amid the glorious embrace of the Aeolian Islands, mountainous and rugged and seemingly lost in time. Panarea offers stupendous natural beauty. Gorgeous beaches for snorkeling, swimming, and sunbathing.


Vulcano

the island is famous almost all over the world for its black beaches, called so for the sand’s colour of volcanic origin. Crystalline sea waters are like a mirror for the intense black lava stones, which do not deny, under the sun rays, that effect so similar to crystals.


Aeolian's route

This route, starting from our base in Portorosa or directly from Salina or Lipari (depending on how you will reach the islands) allows you to really enjoy the sun and sea by having a short sail and stopping for a swim at a beautiful bay. The islands are varied and very close one to each other, so in a week, you can turn them all . The journey to these islands is a bit more uncomfortable than our other bases , but once you arrive you will not regret.
