Found off the northern coast of the autonomous Italian region of Sicily is the tiny island of Filicudi, a striking volcanic landmass in the Tyrrhenian Sea that makes up one of the eight isles of the Aeolian archipelago. Over three-quarters of the island is a natural reserve devoted to protecting the area’s tangle of wild shrubs and grasses and the Prickly Pear cacti that grow on the hillsides. Only a few sparsely populated villages exist on the isle, all of which are located by the narrow peninsula that shapes the southern coast.
The port of Filicudi is situated at the far end of a promenade that lines the pebbled beach along the eastern shore of the peninsula. It’s little more than a simple concrete pier and a small car-park, although a few sea-view restaurants and bars can be found a short walk away.
Although a few tarmac roads tie the villages together, it is far easier to walk to each location along the tracks that snake across the countryside. Even the charming fishing village of Pecorini a Mare on the opposite coast is just under an hour away on foot.
A number of passenger ships leave from the port throughout the week, hosted by two ferry operators. Both Liberty Lines and Siremar ferries whisk passengers to the neighbouring islands of Vulcano, Lipari and Salina in the east, Alicudi in the west and the Sicilian town of Milazzo in the south. Liberty Lines also offers a route to Palermo, the sprawling capital of Sicily.
