    nice long walk

    by ralfar Written Jan 9, 2007

    if you like walking, you can cross vulcano to the other side of the island from the harbour and you arrive on the coast which faces the Milazzo coast. there you will find a long downhill to a beach, with black sand called spiaggia del asino. perfect for swimming.

    I cannot go to Vulcano island without try the experience to dive in the pool of warm mud. You can roll yourself in it (be aware of your eyes) ed emerge from there withened like a ghost or body painted like a prehistorical aborigen.

    After have been encrusted you have to wash away the mud on you in the some mud pool (do not waste it).

    Then you can go to take a bath in the sea BUT be careful were you put your feet. The ground is hot, also in the water! Better to wear some beach sandal. And in the sea look for the bubbles coming up from the sea bottom near the coast. There are some nice place near the rocks that will make you feel like to be in a luxurios spa.

    You have to pay actually 1,50 euro to get access, and save some coins for the showers.

    climb the volcano

    Around 300 m to climb. Be careful of the sun!
    in the afternoon it's become free to go there.

    In the top, you must hold your breath to avoid sulfur smoke, and never try to take some yellow rocks (about 100°C). Just cross the sulfur path and enjoy the view
