    You MUST go to the Acquacalda beach.It is an industrial site. A open sky mine of pumice stone.The debris of the extraction made a huge white and soft hill, on which the locals kids enjoy to slide down.And the white debris cover also the sea ground so that the water looks like in a esotic beach.

  • Visit the pumice mines of Lipari.

    Swimming here is amazing as the water color is effected by the pumice dust. Best way to get here is hire a scooter for the day and make it one of your stops.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    when landing from the continent,from ferry or aliscafi,and looking for a room,avoid proposals of those who don't have an official authorization.if inspection,penalty for both of you,householder AND you!

    choose "affitacamere",authorized persons for rooms to let.

    Favorite thing: view on lipari and faraglioni,from vulcano island....
    faraglioni are pointed rocks,78m high on the sea.
    they tell they are two eole's fingers,solidified;

    Fondest memory: awesome,mainly in sunset....navigate at the foot of the fingers (!),mainly at sunset,is a unforgettable memory!
