Egadi on a sailing boat from Trapani
Excursion sailboat Egadi Islands from Trapani
Favignana and Levanzo
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 archipelago is a popular destination for snorkelling, diving and sailing enthusiasts.
FAVIGNANA- "The butterfly of the Egadi Islands"
The island of Favignana, the capital and the largest island of the Egadi archipelago is defined as a butterfly (with outstretched wings) due to its peculiar shape divided into two parts by the hill of Santa Caterina. Called Aegusa by the Greeks, it owes its current name to the Favonio wind, which always laps it, making the climate mild and cool.
Bays, sandy or rocky beaches, Favignana satisfies everyone's tastes. The beaches with fine and golden sand are Cala Azzurra, Lido Burrone, the Calamoni, then there are also suggestive coves of sand and pebbles located in the area of Punta Lunga, Preveto, Faraglioni and Punta Thin.
Cala Rossa takes its name mythically, like so many places in our Sicily, from terrible and sad facts as if to reiterate that even in the worst situation we always manage to get the best.
Here in 241 before Christ on March 10, a terrible naval battle took place, so many were the victims that the entire golfetto was colored red blood.
Levanzo is a special island, Those who stop there must love the sea deeply, but must also love the land, must have the taste of living nature, walking or riding a mule in the paths that climb towards the mountain, he must love people, he must know how to be with people, without any prejudice, know how to listen to them and know how to tell each other, but with discretion. The seabed of Levanzo is a true paradise for those who love diving. The sea, which takes on all shades of green and deep blue, rich in flora and fauna, still preserves numerous archaeological finds dating back to the Punic battles and the Roman period. Amphorae, vases, anchors lie in the depths of this generous sea that jealously guards centuries-old stories, stories of men and battles, myths and legends.
In order to preserve the natural beauty of the archipelago, the Protected Marine Area (AMP) of the Egadi Islands, the largest marine reserve in Europe, was recently established.
