Day hikes in Sicily: Alicudi
Alicudi is the farthest island towards west, so you may experience the colors into the open sea like you are watching the ocean. The island is very simple but so authentic.
From Alicudi Porto it is possible to choose between mountain excursions and sea or a combination of the two. Both are really exciting day hikes in Sicily. The Chiesa di San Bartolo is the switch towards the routes north Filo dell’Arpa, la Montagna, and south Sgurbio and Bazzina. Routes are all mid-difficulty and last from 2 to 4 hours.
Alicudi is special at sunrise, a fan of pink and gold over the open sea watching the profile of Filicudi.
Spend at least two days in Alicudi, since last hydrofoil leaves too early for sunset, and enjoy the possibility of having a night-time excursion at moon light or under the stars.
The beach of Bazzina is amazing for ist quiet and under water goldish colors
Meals are always homemade with organic products from gardens and fish is always just fished by Silvio.
It is possible to take a round trip off the island by boat and admire this part of Sicily.
