Sailing in Sicily


Sun, sea and wind in the stern. In Sicily, a boating holiday is an experience to be enjoyed at the pace of a sailboat

. Pitching, mooring, anchoring and waiting for the calm. A break from city life and a return to the rhythms of nature, learning with the skipper to recognise the winds and currents, to explore the seas and the most beautiful coves.

Even a one-day tour, such as the one from Milazzo (Messina) to the island of Vulcano, for a taste of the Aeolian Islands, or from Palermo to Mondello and Capo Gallo, can be relaxing and full of surprises!

But if you have more time, here are some of the most sought-after sailing itineraries of 6 days to the Aeolian Islands, in the northeast of Sicily, or 5 days to the Aegadian Islands in the sea around Trapani and Marsala.

Happy sailing!
