Tucked down in a southern corner of the Tyhrrean Sea, near the top of the “Boot” and Sicily; the Aeolian Islands have awed sailors and yachtsmen for millenniums. These are islands that were more well known in Ancient Times than today, when the constantly erupting Stromboli Island Volcano was used by Ancient Mariners as a navigational aid.
The seven Aeolian Islands, now, as an archipelago, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, (which means that nothing can be changed and anything built must be the same as the traditional architecture on the islands), slumber on. These secret jewels, with beautiful clear water in shades of blue and green, grottos and caves worn into each island’s coasts, and with traditional fishing villages snuggled into the harbors, are waiting to be discovered.
Panarea Island is the secret island of all secret islands, a chic escape where only those in the know escape civilization for relaxing long sun filled days. With no street lights or even streets, being out on Panarea is being on your own two feet with your own lantern to light the way.
Really only able to be seen, explored, and enjoyed by private yacht, these islands are there, as they always have been to explore on your next yacht charter.
