Explore Volcanic Vulcano on Your Sailing Getaway

The volcanic landscape of Vulcano is like no other place we’ve ever experienced. The tranquil turquoise waters surrounding the island juxtapose with the volcanic black sand beaches and smoking fumaroles, to create an atmosphere that feels almost otherworldly, or at least just a little bit magical. This feeling is heightened as you walk up to the island’s volcanic crater and look out over the ocean beyond. Vulcano is a very special place to us, and we think it will be to you as well.

Experience the Spectacular Seclusion of Isola Filicudi

We’ve probably all experienced a desire to get away from it all, even if it’s just for a few hours, and Isola Filicudi is the perfect location in which to clear your mind and fully embrace peace and tranquillity. Experience unspoilt sea grottos and serene pathways which lead to some of the most spectacular panoramic views you will ever see, and enjoy connecting with the true beauty of nature in this wild, untamed landscape.

Appreciate Every Inch of Picturesque Panarea

Arguably one of the most beautiful Italian Islands, views of the the unspoilt rocky shoreline, concealed coves and gently bubbling, therapeutic thermal sea springs are simply unforgettable.

Soak in the Distinctive Greenery of Stunning Salina

The twin peaks of Salina provide shelter to the island’s lush greenery, wildflower meadows and expansive vineyards. Wind your way up through olive groves and fruit tree forests to one of Salina’s vineyards to sample some of the locally produced sweet Malvasia wine, before making your way back down to the shoreline to enjoy a deliciously fresh sunset meal overlooking spectacular views of Stromboli, gently smouldering away out at sea.
