Marina of Lipari – Aeolian Islands
The Aeolian Islands, also known as the Islands of fire, are a volcanic archipelago situated in the Tyrrhenian Sea in the north of Sicily. The archipelago consists of 7 islands, the so-called 7 pearls of the Mediterranean Sea (Alicudi, Filicudi, Lipari, Panarea, Salina, Stromboli e Vulcano), arranged in the shape of a Y, as well as many islets and rocky outposts. The islands are a UNESCO world heritage site, both for their incredible beauty and for the care and attention the islanders take to coexist with nature. The peculiarity of the Aeolian Islands is its morphology, shaped over millennia thanks to the activity of the volcanoes, the sea, and the wind, like an artist choosing the most amazing form, the right colours, the most delicate and intense smells and tastes to create an artistic masterpiece that touches all 5 senses.
The best way to visit the Aeolian Islands is by boat, travelling between the black beaches of Vulcano, the sea stack of Alicudi, the coloured grottos of Panarea, and the many beauties of Lipari.
The Marina Lipari Service, situated in the heart of the amazing bay of Marina Lunga, is the perfect mooring spot for a holiday in the Aeolian Islands. The dock, 400 metres from the historic centre of Lipari, has modern fittings and guarantees a safe, comfortable and high quality mooring. The marina has around 50 berths and offers many services, whose costs are included in the cost of berth, like water and electricity, mooring assistance, 24 hour supervision, weather forecast service, and WiFi. The price list is available on this link.
The island of Lipari, the biggest island of the archipelago, is the island that offers the perfect compromise between comfort, leisure and natural beauty. The internal part of the island hosts many attractions that can satisfy the needs of even the most demanding tourists. The historic centre of Lipari is below the majestic stronghold of the Castle, that dominates the whole area. Here there is also the famous Cathedral of St. Bartolomeo, the Archeological Park and the Aeolian Museum, where you can discover the history of the Aeolian Islands.
For lovers of shopping and those who want to experience the routine of the island their is the vivacious Via Vittorio Emanuele, with its many souvenir shops, its boutiques and pubs where you can taste the many Sicilian specialties.
After returning on board you can visit the coast of the island, to discover the many white beaches, with huge pumice deposits while you leisurely make your way to the other islands of the archipelago.
An unmissable experience are the nightly excursions by sea around the island of Stromboli, where the sky is illuminated by the volcanic ash that creates extraordinary tricks of light. We also recommend a visit to the island by day, when you can climb the volcano with an expert guide.
The island of Panarea is a paradise for lovers of snorkelling, thanks to the clearness of its water with its emerald glow and the beauty of its sea bed. While in Filicudi you can visit the suggestive underwater archeologic site.
During your trip you will be amazed by the sea stacks that rise out from the clear sea around the islands and by the many grottos, like the Grotto of Bue Marino in Filicudi, famous for its silence and its suggestive natural lights.
