The island of Alicudi presents itself to the distracted view of the visitor, like a large and regular volcanic cone that rises from the sea. However, this sensation is immediately denied once the island has been reached: narrow and steep mule tracks climb along the sides of the island to discover pristine corners of paradise, from which one can admire one of the most beautiful panoramas in the world. Circumnavigating the island we can admire the Scoglio Galera, where the water is more crystal clear, and the Sciara dell’Arpa, a valley that reaches the seabed from the top of Mount Filo dell’Arpa.
Our journey begins with departure from the port of Cefalù at 8.30 am and traveling at a cruising speed of about 20 knots we will arrive at Alicudi after about an hour and a half.
We will take a slow tour of the island to appreciate its wonders where we still travel by donkey. After a break for a magnificent refreshing swim, we will disembark on the island for lunch at the characteristic and unique Ericusa restaurant where we will be able to enjoy tasty fish dishes.
After lunch a short walk and for the more adventurous, a climb to the monte filo.
In the afternoon we will embark again with a route to Cefalù. On the way we will be able to admire, with a little luck, even the dolphins.
