Departure at 9:30 am from the port of Lipari Marina Corta for the sea tour of the island of Vulcano. We will coast Vulcanello and the "Valley of the Monsters". It is a small promontory connected to the island of Vulcano via an isthmus following a 16th century eruption.
Afterwards we will visit the Faraglioni, the Grotta degli Angeli and the Grotta del Cavallo. We will arrive at the Baia delle Sabbie Nere, a very black volcanic beach, and the Gran Cratere della Fossa. We will reach the Piscina di Venere and then we will arrive in Gelso, a small, sparsely populated village characterized by unspoiled nature.
During navigation, at the discretion of the captain and marine weather conditions permitting, it will be possible to make stops for swimming.
At the end, we will make a stop on the Island of Vulcano to allow the free visit of the island.
Vulcano is famous for the volcanic phenomena that characterize it, such as mud and underwater fumaroles, known all over the world for the health benefits of the skin and the treatment of rheumatism. Once we get off the island, we will be able to visit the Thermal Pool of Vulcano, the Baia delle Acque Calde, facing the mud, the Baia delle Sabbie Nere beach. Do not miss the climb to the Gran Cratere del Vulcano, a pleasant 45-minute walk through gorse, volcanic boulders and the black and sandy soil, made up of volcanic dust. From the top the view is breathtaking!
Return to Lipari scheduled for around 17:45.
