Panarea

It is the smallest island and lesser of the Aeolian Islands (Timpone Crow, the highest elevation, reaches 421 meters). With Basiluzzo, Spinazzola, Lisca Bianca, Dattilo, Bottaro, Lisca Nera, the panarelli and ants form a small archipelago situated halfway between Lipari and Stromboli. The Panarea Mediterranean is generous with prickly pear, agavi, ginestre, capers and several ancient olive trees. The crystal clear waters are endless shades of color.

The most beautiful place on the island is the exclusive bay of Cala Junco, extreme southern tip of Panarea, a picturesque beach surrounded by walls formed by lava; above the prehistoric village.

The city is concentrated in three districts: Saint Peter, Ditella and Drautto. The main road that crosses the island from north to south, not passable by car, winds through the houses that offer stunning views including the rocks in front and Stromboli. The island is preserved from the campsites.
