A catamaran holiday in the Aeolian Islands, for a dream week in one of the most beautiful archipelagos in the Mediterranean. Sailing in these waters is ideal with a catamaran: the mild temperature in spring and autumn and warm but breezy in summer, make it possible to holiday from March to November. Although the marinas are limited in number, the presence of many buoy fields equipped with taxi-boats, allow the yachtsman to disembark anywhere. Furthermore, the geographical position limits the arrival of sustained winds from the Sardinia area, so it is rare to need shelter. The archipelago is of volcanic origin, which creates a very rocky geological conformation and the bare presence of peaks on each island. There are two active volcanoes: Stromboli and Vulcano. If you rent the catamaran from a charter on the coast, for example Milazzo, Santa Agata, or Capo d'Orlando, we can head to Vulcano. This is the southernmost island, characterized by black sand beaches, sulfur fumaroles on the slopes and a large pool of sulphurous muddy waters near the beach, near the Marina di Levante landing place. Lipari is the largest island: the urban center is lively and colorful, full of bars and restaurants around the historic port of Marina Corta. You can go up to the castle, which contains the historic helmet. You can moor the catamaran in Marina Lunga or Pignataro. Other suggestive places on the island are the Faraglioni, Valle Muria and Porticello, a bay with a suggestive disused quarry of white pumice. Very close is Salina, an island with luxuriant vegetation where the vines stand out on the hills. Santa Marina is the main center, with a marina where to moor. Then with the catamaran we can circumnavigate and anchor in front of Lingua: a fishing village characterized by a brackish water lake close to the sea. They are the famous salt flats from which the island takes its name. Our catamaran holiday continues with the other beauties of the Aeolian Islands. The two islands to the far west are Filicudi and Alicudi. Remote, authentic, almost wild rocky, silent, they constitute a haven of tranquility away from the routes of great tourism. The rocky coasts offer incomparable scenarios: Pecorini is the most beautiful bay to anchor and enjoy a crystal clear sea surrounded by nature and a small village. Finally, last but not least, the two islands to the far east: Panarea and Stromboli. Very different from each other but both very touristic. The first is a tiny island, with characteristic white houses immersed in the vegetation of hibiscus and bougainvillea. It is not unusual to meet VIPs and celebrities who have their summer residence here. Around Panarea a dramatic system of stacks, rocks and rocky islets, which enhance the morphology of the area. Finally Stromboli, with its volcano of almost a thousand meters visible for many miles. The volcano has been active for more than 200 years, manifesting itself in constant explosions and lapilli within a short distance. The magma descends copiously from the Sciara del fuoco, a valley between two mouths, observable from the sea: especially at night it is an unforgettable experience. Going around Stromboli, you can also moor at the boe field of Ginostra, a charming fishing village of only 27 inhabitants, reachable only by sea!
