Black Beaches and a Sea of Green
Apart from this spectacle, the volcanic origin of the gives them a unique character. The landscape is very rugged, with caves and steep cliffs, but also has delightful hot springs. Another special treat is the Spiaggia di Sabbia Nera, a beach of deep black, volcanic sand. Of course, there are also the white, sandy, Mediterranean beaches so very popular with swimmers on sailing boat holidays in Italy. The islands’ interiors show the same contrasting character, with bare, black rocks alongside beautiful, green oases. As well as for its desolate mountain slopes, smoking craters and lush forests, this area is also known for its very vivid underwater world, ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving as part of your holiday by sailing boat.
