If you visit Sicily, you do not want to miss this island blessed by the sun and by a wonderful sea with unique colors. Favignana is located in western Sicily, just 10 miles away from the Sicilian mainland and can be reached in less than 30 minutes by ferry or hydrofoil. Its crystal waters make it a perfect place for a relaxing holiday, enjoying sun and sea in a rarely preserved environment.
Most activities in Favignana are obviously done at sea, like the several excursions by boat, during which you will be able to swim in and discover magnificent sea caves and small bays only reachable this way. The island also features very suggestive underwater archeological paths for those who like diving. Snorkeling is also highly suggested since Favignana is part of a marine protected area and its waters are rich in life and sea species to see.
Above all anyway, Favignana is a little paradise for a vacation at sea, with several bays and beaches meeting any taste. From the ones ideal for children, to the ones ideal to go for a dip. Each of them is a rare setting where nature may still be seen at its original state. Do not miss the enchanting sights from the bays or from the mount S. Caterina, you will be amazed.
In Favignana you will also be able to taste several dishes with swordfish and tuna fish as well as all the typical dishes of the Sicilian tradition. The food here is simply delicious and reflects old history paths, with Arab and African influences, serving dishes which cannot be found in the rest of the country.Categories: Guides
