Overview

If visiting the island of Vulcano will give you great excitement, our Vulcano Beach boat tour around the island will let you discover hidden gems only accessible by sea.

Depart from the port of Lipari Marina Corta at 09.30 a.m. The island tour will begin by coasting along Vulcanello, a small promontory connected to the island of Vulcano by an isthmus formed in the 16th century following a volcanic eruption. This strip of land offers a marvellous vantage point over the entire Aeolian archipelago, but its real peculiarity lies in the ‘Valley of the Monsters‘, characterised by the presence of lava rocks that, depending on the point of observation and the shadows cast on the ground, form monstrous figures.

Afterwards, navigation will proceed towards the Faraglioni, Grotta degli Angeli and Grotta del Cavallo. You will also admire the Baia delle Sabbie Nere, a beach with characteristic black sand, and the Gran Cratere della Fossa. Next, be captivated by the beauty of the Piscina di Venere, a natural pool surrounded by tufa and basalt rocks. This magical place is shrouded in legend. Indeed, it is said that the goddess Venus would dive into these waters every night to regain her lost virginity before joining her husband, the god Vulcan.

You will then continue to Gelso, a small, sparsely populated village surrounded by unspoilt nature. During navigation, at the captain’s discretion and weather and sea conditions permitting, it will be possible to make some stops to dive from the boat.

In addition to the island tour, you will also have the chance to land at the port of Vulcano to visit the island independently.

The Vulcano Beach excursion will end with the return to the port of Lipari at around 4.45 p.m.
