Island of Vulcano Sicily
Legend states it was here Efesto, the God of fire, used to have his headquarters in stark contrast to the blue calm sea all around.
Points of interest on the island include the peninsular of Vulcancello which splits both Porto di Levante and Porto di Ponente and their fabulous beaches considered one of the best of Sicily.
If you have to chose one or the other, the Ponente is formed of black volcanic sand while the Levante is beautifully golden.
The last eruption on the island was in 1890 but underwater activity is active enough to provide therapeutic hot springs and natural mud baths near Baia di Levante.
