Alicudi and Filicudi are located in the western side of the islands and Alicudi is a tiny island only two and a half kilometres wide. A small (steep!) uncontaminated paradise off the north coast of Sicily.
Far removed from mass tourism, these islands make it possible to find the peace and quiet so often eluding us in our busy everyday lives.
Alicudi has no roads and no traffic. It can be travelled over only on foot, along century-old stepped paths. August sees a little more in the way of tourism, but there is always a stretch of beach where you can find solitude and the quiet sound of the sea on the rocks. The water quality is fantastic, and marine life varied. Great for an hour or two of snorkelling or tanning. The mountain is rugged and grand and you can explore its wild beauty unfettered by fences and limits.
The seabed around the Canna rock is full of coral reefs and sponges, a paradise for all underwater photographers and those who just like to look.
