Breakfast in the cockpit, stop for lunch in the village of Pecorini a Mare , on the island of Filicudi, with a stop at the Sea Turtles First Aid and then bow towards Alicudi , the most distant and wildest of the Aeolian Islands, one of those places where time has stopped, life passes slowly in contact with unspoiled, harsh and lonely nature.
There are no discos, pubs, banks and ATMs, but only a small restaurant with a unique atmosphere, paths suitable for the donkey pass, the only means of transport on the island, lava stone paths and a lot of tranquility.
Sweet awakening on the island of Alicudi and en route to Filicudi .

In Porto we will be able to taste Sicilian granitas in the only bar, go up to Capo Graziano to visit the prehistoric village and rent a scooter to reach the viewpoint to enjoy a breathtaking sunset.
This morning we are ready to sail to the bay of Pollara, on the island of Salina, famous for its particular morphology: its coasts are often cliffs, but wonderful natural secrets are kept above. Here the vegetation is truly luxuriant, virgin and unspoiled, so much so that it was chosen as the setting for the film “Il Postino”. We will circumnavigate the island until we reach Santa Marina. The small town located on the slopes of a huge crater, the Fossa delle Felci. This area is the busiest point of the whole island because it is full of shops and clubs that crowd for nightlife in the evening.
Breakfast in the cockpit and then bow towards Basiluzzo , a small rock of volcanic origin characterized by a pure white color. Here the waters are still heated by the volcanoes that rose in this area; Those who love snorkeling can reach the rocks of Lisca Bianca , its seabed and sulfur springs. We will then continue towards Stromboli , the volcano in permanent activity where we can choose to visit the crater, climbing its slopes. The show will be truly unforgettable, no less than the Sciara di Fuoco , to be admired in the harbor after sunset. At the discretion of the crew, the possibility of night navigation in the direction of Cala Zimmari di Panarea .

The program of the last day plans to drop anchor at Spiaggia Bianca . The volcanic nature of the Aeolian Islands is tangible in this place where the seabed, consisting of the sediments of white pumice, offers a unique spectacle in the world. The sea is particularly warm, of an intense turquoise and on it there are jetties that were once used for the transport of the extracted goods.

Beneteau Oceanis 430
Four double cabins and two bathrooms, this boat was designed by Philippe Briand thinking above all of the yachting aspect.
Particularly suitable for those who love comfortable cruises spent between long stops at anchor and large lunches with friends, it guarantees great safety in navigation.
Easy mobility on board and plenty of space reserved for the crew, both on deck and in the welcoming cockpit.
In the years this boat was built, real wood was still used for the interiors, with solid wood moldings, exposed drawers and upholstered ceilings.
Everything on the Oceanis 430 can be seen and pleases the eye.
The boat is still one of those that create a marine atmosphere and give its owner the pleasure of owning it.
On a sailboat it is supposed to have to use it as little as possible, but, if necessary, it must be absolutely reliable. For this reason, to propel the boat in transfers, we installed a new 50hp Volvo Penta D2-50 engine.
Equipped with the best safety equipment, over the years it has been constantly adapted to modern needs: photovoltaic and wind turbine to never fail the charge of our mobile phones and notebooks, autopilot, plotter for maximum assistance in planning routes, station wind, depth gauge.
