Egadi Islands Cruise
The Egadi islands (meaning islands of goats) are the small archipelago that consists of three main islands Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo, and two islets, Formica and Maraone. These five small mountainous islands are situated just off the northwest coast of Sicily in the Mediterranean sea. The Egadi islands will seduce you with the beauty of the coastline and crystal clear sea.
The history of the islands is closely linked to the traditional tuna fishing. However, their history goes much further back. The archeological evidence suggests that the islands were occupied already in the Stone age. The legend says that the Egadi Islands owe their names to the nymphs born from the union of the sun god Helios and nymph Neerea.
Preserved and unspoiled wilderness, encounters with endangered species, long beaches and isolated bays, small archeological treasures, deserted mountain paths, and extremely relaxing atmosphere will make cruising in the Egadi archipelago an unforgetful experience.
