After having breakfast in front of the wonderful island of Levanzo, there is the possibility to walk to the Grotta del Genovese, an archaeological site with an extraordinary heritage of prehistoric representations, engravings and paintings dating back to the Palaeolithic age. Once the excursion has finished, you go back on board and sail to the island of Marettimo, where you will have lunch. Since it is not easy to reach, Marettimo isn't really crowded. However, at the same time it's really attractive. Thanks to its crystal clear water, international guides describe it as the "Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea". Marettimo is part of the Natural Reserve of the Egadi Islands , which is the largest natural park in Europe.
After a pleasant night in one of the bays of Marettimo, we can arrange a visit with a local guide that will let you know more about this extraordinary island, including its grottoes. There are hundreds of grottoes in Marettimo and some of them can be reached only by little local boats to admire the famous Grotta del Cammello and the Grotta del Presepe with their crystal clear water. To those who love walking, Marettimo offers interesting trekking routes from the village, to Cala Maione and then till Punta Troia, with breathtaking views of the entire archipelago. Once you get get on board, we can choose the most beautiful bay to take a swim in the seas before having a cocktail at sunset. Then we come back to the port to spend the evening in this enchanting village, where you can have dinner in one of the best restaurants for Sicilian food.
We sail to Favignana, the ancient Aegusa. This is the largest island of the archipelago and it's really famous for its under the open sky tuff quarries, both inside and on the shores of the island. With its colours, nature and verdant shores, Favignana has inspired many artists and explorers. Nowadays there are a lot of tourists, especially during the summer, when the crystal clear waters and the extraordinary grottoes along the shores show all their splendour.
In the morning we sail to one of the bays of Favignana island, that will be chosen according to wind conditions. With south winds it is possibile to head towards the north of the island for instance to Cala Rossa, which is famous for its turquoise sea water. On the contrary, with north winds we may sail to the south of the island, where we can find many different bays and coves. Favignana is a real paradise on earth!
Today we visit the hinterland of Favignana. After having breakfast there is the possibility to visit on of the most ancient tuna-fishery in Sicily, where from April to June you may see the tuna fishing process. Otherwise, you can head towards the mountain for a short walk till the former military emplacement, now disused for years, to see Favignana from the top.
