Egadi Daily Tour
by sailing boat from Trapani
Favignana and Egadi islands
DEPARTURE from Trapani
The Egadi archipelago is located at the western end of Sicily, a few miles from Trapani, and is made up of the islands of Favignana , Levanzo , Marettimo , the islet of Formica and the rock of Maraone. The Egadi islands are set in splendid crystalline waters, and host a rich and varied marine flora and fauna. These features make this archipelago a popular destination for snorkelling, diving and sailing enthusiasts. The natural beauties that characterize the waters of Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo also extend to the mainland. In fact, for those who love walks surrounded by nature, the Egadi islands show a rich vegetation where there are endemic plants with officinal properties, while birds are of significant importance from the wildlife point. In order to preserve the natural beauty of the archipelago, the Marine Protected Area (AMP) of the Egadi Islands has recently been established, the largest marine reserve in Europe.
