It is a volcano, Iddu named by the people of the island. It means “He”.
With its totally black lava beaches, Stromboli expresses the best of itself at sunset, when it’s possible to see from the boat the night eruptions on the side of the volcano: just seeing them live captures the real beauty! Some say that it is a small paradise for its tranquillity, its narrow streets, its white houses and its untouched nature.

The volcano always smoking offers a unique reminder of the power of nature with its constant explosions.

You cannot leave the island without doing the night climb with a guide to the Crater – 924 m, a boat trip to Strombolicchio and Ginostra with an obligatory stop at the Sciara del Fuoco.
