Stromboli is a small island resting in the Tyrrhenian Sea, laying just to the north of the Italian island of Sicily. There are many ferry routes departing the port, heading to other coastal resorts and Italy and crossings around Sicily.
It’s rare for an island adorning an active volcano to elevate into such a prominent holiday destination, but the languid pace and enigmatic allure prove too tempting for many who visit Italy’s smaller islands. Much of the island has been blackened from the constant stream of volcanic eruptions, however, the north-eastern region of Stromboli remains untouched, remaining fully inhabited throughout the centuries and demonstrates the appeal emanating from the charming cafes and welcoming restaurants.
The limited inhabitable villages mean that is only plausible to visit for a day or two, though the friendly, warm atmosphere flowing around the colourful buildings evinces love at first sight for most visitors. Whilst in the northern corner, it is almost compulsory to visit the black beaches that decorate the coastline, curling elegantly around the rugged landscape. As beautiful as the island may appear, bear in mind the practical difficulties; there is no original water supply and electricity is in short supply.
It is only a kilometre from one side of the island to another, so the primary option for transport is on two feet.
