Aeolian IslandsWest Mediterranean
The perfect Mediterranean escape for island-lovers, the seven volcanic gems that form the major Aeolian Islands are still the region's most alluring collection of destinations, perfect for superyacht owners seeking privacy and seclusion in Mediterranean bliss.
Listed on the UNESCO’s World Heritage, the unspoilt beauty of the Aeolian Islands offer otherworldly island charm in perfect distance to some of the most sought after retreats in the West Mediterranean.
The floating gems of Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Alicudi and Filicudi lie north off the coast of Sicily, stretching between the looming presence of Mt Etna and the eye-catching beauty of Vesuvius above Naples. Close enough to major cities and neighboring larger islands, the glittering Aeolian Islands offer the perfect pristine landscape to sail in superyacht seclusion.
From Lipari to Vulcano
Lipari is the largest and most focal of the islands. Nestled between two harbours, Marina Lunga and Marina Corta, Lipari is also the name of the main locality, boasting the generous Ponente Beach, framed by the enchanting ruins of medieval castles and towers. Vulcano is Lipari’s close neighbour and like its name would suggest, is famous for its volcano, the Gran Cratere.The volcano provides the island with amazing natural mud baths, unrivalled in their pure benefits for the skin making it a unique superyacht destination to witness nature's enchanting beauty.
From Panarea to Stromboli
Panarea is the smallest of the islands, and as the luxury heart, beams with exclusivity and quiet elegance. Stromboli, with its active volcano, is not surprisingly the most remote of the islands. the amazingly deep waters surrounding the island also offer a fabulous selection of dive sites, where scuba enthusiasts are drawn by the diverse marine floor.
From Salina to Filicudi and Alicudi
While lesser known, the lush, mountainous island of Salina is the second largest island and makes for a perfect escape from the bustling vibrancy of the main islands. The flourishing wildlife makes for an invigorating walk before returning to lunch on your yacht or a lazy swim in the calm waters. The island is home to an alluring collection of bays and capes offering perfect swimming conditions. To the west, Filicudi and Alicudi continue to preserve their original wildness, but make wonderful anchoring spots to enjoy a quiet lunch, private swim or simply sit and enjoy the true beauty of the Aeolian Islands at their most pure.
