The Beaches and what to see in Stromboli, Aeolian Islandi

However, there are more private beaches where you can enjoy relaxation and tranquility, don’t be too surprised to find some beaches where people prefer to get a more complete tan.
The sea here in Stromboli has a dark, almost mysterious appearance, but the waters are crystal clear and refreshing. The black beaches become very hot during the hottest hours of the day.
A hike to the summit will be an unforgettable experience: you get to the top (900 meters) after a few hours of walking along rough trails, made even more difficult by the volcanic earth that makes the trail slippery and difficult for the less experienced.
From the summit of Stromboli you can see the view over the whole island, almost untouched. For professionals however, it can be exciting to make the climb at night, with the glow of explosions that light up the night sky. In both cases, you should always be accompanied by a licensed guide.
Thanks to the location of Stromboli and its constant volcanic activity, the island is particularly attractive for discerning holiday-makers; families looking for tranquility as well as seasoned hikers who cannot resist the urge to climb the peak. Even in Stromboli, the kitchen and the facilities maintain a high standard of quality.
On the western side of the island lies the small village of Ginostra where time seems to have stood still: the population is not equipped with electricity and lives off the cultivation of the lands while the transport of goods is done with the help of animals.
Finally, on the north-east there is the large stack of Strombolicchio, 43 meters high, the mouth of an extinct marine volcano, reachable by boat.
