Sailing routes in Sicily
Yachts often prefer the area between the northern coast of Sicily, Calabria, and the Aeolian Islands. Palermo, Cefalu, San Agata, Milazzo, and Porto Rosa are ideal places to start sailing in Sicily. On a sea voyage between harbors and bays, you can thoroughly explore the northern coast of the island. We recommend building your route to the Aeolian Islands (Lipari Islands).
On the east coast, the port of Catania conveniently locate near the airport. Those who travel from the east to the northern coast or sail to the Aeolian Archipelago should explore the Strait of Messina route in more detail. It isn't easy to navigate here, primarily because of the strong, continually changing currents. Also, there is an active movement of ferries and ships. This strait is not suitable for beginners.
Here is the itinerary for a sailing yacht around the Aeolian Islands, located in the northwest of the Sicilian coast:
- Marina di Portorosa — Vulcano — Lipari — Panarea — Stromboli — Salina — Filicudi — Marina di Portorosa
