Panarea is an elegant microcosm which will entice and enwrap you, let you savour the simplicity of the island life, but at the same time, send you into a more refined dimension.
WHAT TO DO ON PANAREA
ADVICE FROM CUSIRITATI
Panarea is an island where life starts early in the day, and ends late in the evening. First thing in the morning, you can go to the port to see the fishing boats come in after the night-time fishing trips: you must hire a boat to explore inlets and bays, and organise visits to other islands in the archipelago. Explore the seven sisters, with no particular schedule for your days, you’ll be entranced by the surprises opening up before your eyes!
For instance, go to Punta del Corvo, the highest peak on Panarea, where you can look out over the entire island in all its natural majesty. Also, above all, the beaches are worth more visits, perhaps going to different places sometimes: Cala Junco, la Caletta degli Zimmari and Punta Milazzese are the most breathtaking destinations. All around you are the majestic, unspoilt cliffs, on some of which the waters are heated by underwater fumaroles.

THE SEA OF PANAREA
It is the first recommendation we want to give you, so you can savour every moment of your island holiday. The second is that you must remember to bring a pair of walking boots, so you can explore the unspoilt, natural and authentic part of the island, an essential experience, where the right equipment is needed. Third and final piece of advice: lose yourself among the coastal lanes around the typical white-painted island settlements, wander the paths along the mountain leading to the inhabited town centre, and if you have problems, don't hesitate to rent a traditional Aeolian taxi, which is simply an Apetta (small three-wheeled vehicle) adapted for tourist transport.
