The Egadi archipelago is located at the western end of Sicily, a few miles from Trapani, and is made up of the islands of Favignana, Levanzo, Marettimo. The archipelago is a popular destination for snorkelling, diving and sailing enthusiasts .
FAVIGNANA-"The Egadi butterfly"
The island of Favignana, the capital and largest island of the Egadi archipelago is defined as a butterfly (with outstretched wings) due to its peculiar shape divided into two parts by the hill of Santa Caterina. Called Aegusa by the Greeks, it owes its current name to the Favonio wind, which always laps it, making its climate mild and fresh.
Bays, sandy or rocky beaches, beaches with fine golden sand are Cala Azzurra, Lido Burrone, Calamoni, then there are also suggestive coves of sand and pebbles located in the area of Punta Lunga, del Preveto, dei Faraglioni and Punta Sottile.
Cala Rossa mythically takes its name, like so many places in our Sicily, from terrible and sad facts as if to reiterate that even in the worst situation we always manage to get the best out of it.
Here in 241 before Christ on March 10th, a terrible naval battle took place, so many were the victims that the entire bay turned blood red.
Levanzo is a special island, those who stop there must deeply love the sea, but must also love the earth, must have the taste for experiencing nature, for walks or mule rides along the paths that climb up the mountain, must love people, must know how to be with people, without any prejudice, know how to listen to them and know how to tell each other, but with discretion
In order to preserve the natural beauty of the archipelago, the Marine Protected Area (AMP) of the Egadi Islands was recently established, the largest marine reserve in Europe.
