Sicilia Off The Beaten Path: 40 reviews and 67 photos

I put Marettimo in the Off the beaten Path section even if it's absolutely a Must see activity ; ) for Sicily. Maybe its charme depends from the fact that many prefer going to Favignana, which is bigger and more crowded.
Marettimo is the most remote island of the Egadi group, 1 hour and a half away from Trapany. In Marettimo there are no hotels, and the only accommodation available is that offered by local fishermen. In winter Marettimo counts no more than 200 inhabitants, cause quite everybody choose to stay in Trapani. There are just a few (parked) car in Marettimo, lots of paths manageable even astride a donkey, and all around simply nature. One of the best thing to do there is rent a boat or ask a local fisherman to provide excursion with his boat, to see the numerous caves that nestle among the precipitous cliffs along the coast.
