Lying between Tunisia and Sicily, Pantelleria is the largest of all the Sicilian offshore islands in the Mediterranean Sea.
Known locally as ‘the black pearl of the Mediterranean’ due to its volcanic exterior, Pantelleria has a ruggedly beautiful coastline comprising stunning, secluded coves, while the interior is defined by lava stone walls and luxurious celebrity homes and villas.
The hilly, volcanic terrain offers some excellent hiking trails, and you can relax afterwards in the natural hot sauna in a grotto beside the island’s highest peak, Montagna Grande. Or, if you would prefer, you can snorkel in the azure waters with plenty of colourful fish.
The island’s main port is in the town of Pantelleria on the northwest coast, where numerous sailings are provided to Trapani on Sicily, a historic town where Peter of Aragon landed in 1282 to begin the Spanish occupation of the island.
The island of Sicily, located off the south coast of Italy is the largest of the numerous Italian islands and is surrounded by the Ionian, Tyrrhenian and Mediterranean Seas.
Parts of Sicily are on the same latitude as the coast of North African which results in a mild climate that makes the island an attractive year round destination, not just with domestic visitors from mainland Italy but abroad too. As with many of the Italian islands, the tourist season peaks in the summer months.
On Sicily's eastern coast you’ll find Mount Etna, the greatest active volcano in Europe and undoubtedly one of the regions attractions.
Perhaps in part due to its geographical location, but in the main because of its obvious attraction as a destination, Sicily features a host of regular ferry connections with neighbouring islands and the Italian mainland as well as international connections with the likes of Malta and Tunisia.
