Natural Feature
“Alicudi and Filicudi are the smallest of the Eolian Islands and the most remote. This means that they have especially rich marine life and are excellent places to snorkel or scuba dive. Due to their distance from Salina, the way to visit them is on an organized boat tour from Santa Marina, which is offered by several companies. There are various stands, which offer information about tour times and prices, in the piazzas of Santa Marina, Malfa and Lingua. ”
