Filicudi

Filicudi is generally agreed to be the wildest and prettiest of the Aeolian Islands, with crystal clear waters and deep grottoes, providing excellent swimming and snorkelling conditions.

The dazzling Grotto del Bue Marino (Blue Grotto) is the island’s main attraction. The Scoglio della Canna (Cane Reef), a rock obelisk located off the north-western coast, is also worth a visit. At Capo Graziano, a short walk south-east of the port, are found the remains of a prehistoric village, dated 1800 BC. Hiking trails across the Island are spread over a huge network, leading to the abandoned village of Zucco Grande and to Fossa Felci, a mountain in the centre of the Island.

The neighbouring island of Alicudi is home to only a handful of fishermen. You can walk up Monte Filo dell’Arpa to see the crater of the extinct Montagnola volcano and the Timpone delle Femmine, huge fissures in the rock in which the women of the island are said to have hidden from marauding pirates.
