This small island was beautiful. It had walking trails with the serene surroundings, which also led to ruins that were on the edge of cliffs.. It had gorgeous views of Stromboli. We walked everywhere, no cars are used for transportation. The restaurants were very good,...More

The scenery at the beach is breathtakingly beautiful and it's well worth the hassle. The problem starts when one wants to have a swim at this beautiful location as one can experience swarming broods of jellyfish. Maybe it's the season or maybe it's the global...More

Pristine environment, wonderful and easy walk with just a bit of a steep hill at the end. Take water, a hat, a bathing suit and a towel to enjoy the crystal water of the few coves along the way!

The trip to Cala Junco was one of the highlights of my holiday in Panarea. The hike is not difficult and took roughly 15-20 minutes (although much of this time was spent taking photos of the wonderful scenery along the way!) There is a bronze...More

Crystal clear water in a small cove, surrounded by gorgeous rocky areas. On the point overlooking the cove is a bronze age settlement where the stone walls are still visible. It's an easy hike of about 15 minutes or so from Cala Zimmari, at the...More

Beautiful hike, and not too difficult. I would recommend going around sunset, as this vantage point is one of the most beautiful on the island during this time of the day.
