Sunday, after breakfast, we sail to nearby Vulcano. Excursion to the Gran Cratere (one hour) and visit of the village. We will hoist the sails to reach nearby Lipari, its ancient Castle welcomes us, a swim to make the tiredness of the journey disappear in front of the white pumice quarries. In the afternoon we will aim our bow for Panarea. We can anchor in front of the terrace of the famous Raja, for an aperitif at sunset looking at Stromboli, or anchor near Cala Junco to visit the prehistoric village and get to the Raja on a walk. Panarea has a small "archipelago": Lisca Bianca, Lisca Nera, Bottaro, Spinazzolo and Basiluzzo and we will visit it by sailing.
On Monday, we will move to Basiluzzo or the islet of Lisca Bianca, we will anchor for a beautiful swim and there will be time for snorkelling. Monday, afternoon sailing to Stromboli, its Sciara del Fuoco, its black beaches, its transparent or deep blue sea. Dinner on land in the Observatory's pizza restaurant with an exclusive view of the craters.
Tuesday, awakening in Stromboli and beautiful bath. We now sail to Salina, with a refreshing stop on Panarea, the greenest of the islands, and since the navigation is longer than usual we will anchor for lunch in an unvisited point of Panarea, the Faraglione di Cala La Nave. Arrived in Pollara, a wonderful little inlet with walls overlooking the sea. The places of the film "The postman" with Massimo Troisi and Philippe Noiret. The inlet has a small stack in the center which is what remains of the ancient volcano sunk into the sea. In the afternoon we sail towards Filicudi, the island where the captain would like to anchor and not leave again.
Wednesday, ashore for those who want to have breakfast at the "Saloon", a meeting point for the island's alternatives. In Filicudi there is an extraordinary 70m high columnar rock, La Canna, far from the coast. For some it may be a challenge with themselves, but it will be worthwhile to go around the barrel with a mask and fins and the assistance of the tender together with the others. After lunch we will return to Salina, Cala Santa Marina, all ashore, an aperitif while walking along the course and then dinner ashore or for those who want to dine on board, the trusty tender is ready as always.
Thursday, lazy awakening and short navigation to Lipari, Valle Maria beach, wide sandy bay and swim at the Porta dei Giganti (stacks). In Lipari we will have time for a nice tour of shops and cafes and then dinner on board or on land. For the night we will be quietly moored at the port of Lipari.
Friday, breakfast, still a few bays of Lipari and/or Vulcano, after lunch route to Capo D'Orlando.
