Go boating and experience the best holiday of your life!


Favignana, "the big butterfly on the sea" as it was defined by the painter Salvatore Fiume in the 70s, is the capital and largest island of the Egadi archipelago. The island was known in ancient times with various names such as Aponiana, Katria, Gilia, Aegusa in Latin or Auegusa (from the Greek "island of goats" due to their abundant presence on the island).
Favignana is also remembered by many ancient writers such as Pliny, Polybius, Nepoziano, the anonymous Ravennate and by Arab geographers it was known by the name of Djazirat 'ar Rahib ("island of the monk or hermit", due to the castle that stands on the top of the island, where he would have lived , to be precise, a monk). The current name of Favignana dates back to the Middle Ages and would derive from the name of the Favonio wind coming from the West.

Levanzo was known in antiquity with various names such as Buccina, Forbantia and among Arab geographers with the name of Djazirat 'al Yâbisah ("the Arid"). There are various hypotheses regarding the origin of the current name of the island.
It could derive from the water supply methodology used on the island, consisting of the age-old lever applied to the only well on the beach located to the south, hence "lever up" . Another hypothesis suggests that the name of the island of Levanzo derives from a transformation of the word "Laepantio", a name that perhaps could derive from that of a man of illustrious lineage who would have had dominion over the island or from the sailors of Levanto.

Marettimo was known in antiquity with various names, including Iera ("the sacred") and among Arab geographers with the name of Djazirat Malîtmah.
The current name of the island could originate from the fusion of the words sea - thyme, a hypothesis that draws its formulation from the abundance of thyme present on this island.

Beaches, caves and diving

The island of Favignana is the perfect destination for those who love to enjoy a crystal clear sea with regenerating colours, with a coast also characterized by small coves and numerous sandy glimpses in the southern area.
Indeed, the Favignanese coasts offer different locations to meet everyone's tastes: there are beaches with fine golden sand such as Cala Azzurra, Lido Burrone, Calamoni; or suggestive coves of sand and pebbles located in the area of ​​Punta Lunga, Preveto, Faraglioni and Punta Sottile, from which you can enjoy breathtaking sunsets of rare beauty in which the sky is tinged with wonderful colours. There are also numerous areas that offer characteristic inlets that are perfect for snorkelling. Particular is the famous Cala Rossa which offers both rocks and sand set in a sea that embraces shades ranging from blue to light blue. There are also typically rocky areas for those who love diving, such as Grotta Perciata, Punta Fanfalo or Il Cavallo. Unmissable are the sea caves, reachable by boat, such as the Grotta dei Sospiri.

In the south-eastern part of the island, the visitor will be able to appreciate and enjoy the splendid waters of two coves, which can be reached both by land and by sea: Cala Fredda, characterized by a pebble beach and a comfortable slide, and the wilder Cala Minnola. For diving enthusiasts, Levanzo offers a very attractive archaeological-underwater itinerary: between 27 and 30 meters deep between Cala Minnola and Punta Altarella there are the remains of a Roman wreck, about fifty wine amphorae and fragments of ceramic pottery in black paint dating back to the 1st century BC.


Marettimo is the wildest and most uncontaminated of the Egadi. Thanks to its remoteness, the impervious nature of the mountain and the low impact of man on the environment, it preserves a very precious vegetative and faunal heritage.
is very rich in caves, both emerged and submerged and has about 400, which can be visited in a circumnavigation of the island. The sea caves are its flagship, real masterpieces created by the expert hands of a nature that has sculpted them for centuries, such as the Grotta del Tuono or del Presepe, famous for its stalactites and stalagmites, or the Camel cave. Marettimo also offers splendid experiences for diving enthusiasts, such as diving off the coast where the wreck of a merchant ship is found, diving in a cave at a depth of 30 m., diving at the Secca del Cammello and many others where it is possible to enjoy the beauty of pristine and crystalline waters and admire the marine flora and fauna.
