Sailing in the Aeolian Islands gives a whole new meaning to the word clarity. Here the Tyrrhenian is deep, yet warm, and has an unbelievable glassy quality. With gorgeous coastlines, active volcanoes and fascinating history, it is a great charter destination.
The seven small islands that make up this volcanic archipelago are situated just north of Sicily and are known for the pristine water, that is perfect for diving, and largely untouched land crisscrossed by hiking trails. Plus, the islands are dotted with small towns that are full of history and culture. Lipari, Salina, Alicudi, Filicudi, Panarea, Vulcano and Stromboli are becoming more popular for yachters and vacationers as they each have their own unique characteristics and sites to see.
