WHERE THE SEA MEETS THE SKY: EXPLORING THE EGADI ISLANDS BY YACHT
Food & Drink, Wellness, Culture
02 February 2019
Located 10 miles off the coast of Sicily, the Egadi Islands sit within the sparkling, cerulean waters of the Mediterranean. The rocky, mountainous landscape hides a long history that dates to the Palaeolithic era, and the pace of life moves slowly here. The small population and unspoilt natural beauty are protected by the Egadi Islands Marine Reserve dedication.
This summer, guests staying at Verdura Resort can experience the Egadi Islands first-hand with an unforgettable cruise aboard a luxury yacht. Under the expert guidance of your own skipper, guests set sail from the charming port town of Sciacca, gliding across the waves to explore stunning bays, secret caves and swim in the azure waters.
The first port of call will be the island of Levanzo, the smallest of the three, where you’ll stop to take in the extraordinary cave paintings in the Grotta del Genovese, before heading on to the second island, Favignana, for a dip in the crystalline waters of Cala Rossa. The final island of Marettimo is renowned for its rich marine life and mountainous beauty. Stretch your legs with a stroll up its rocky crags or simply sit and wonder at its jaw-dropping beauty.
