The Beaches and what to see in Filicudi
The highest peak of the island is Fossa delle Felci (773 meters), while at lower elevations are the other peaks, the Montegnola and the Torrione, once also volcanic mouths.
The coast of Filicudi is typically high and rocky, with some exceptions such as Pecorino Mari, which has a magnificent beach with pebbles. The north west has many places where you can take a dip in the water, but accessible only by boat: Centre Perciato, Scoglio Giafante and Scoglio Canna( 71 meters high ) which are usually the places where boats take long pauses while the visitors cool off in the clear waters of Filicudi. While on the southern slope one should visit the Grotto of Bue Marino, where in the afternoon the sun’s rays are reflected off the water, coloring the cave in blue.
Filicudi has a natural landscape that is still wild, observable thanks to the 22 trails that allow you to get around the island far and wide. One of these leads to the abandoned village of Zucco Grande: a surreal place, where nature dominates everything. The route starts from Valdichiesa, from where you can take yet another path, for the more sports-minded, that takes you to the top of the crater of Fossa delle Felci.
It is also worth mentioning, that in the southern part of the island, is the Prehistoric Village of Capo Graziano, whose findings are preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Lipari.
