The last stop in Favignana is the Grotta degli Innamorati or “Lovers Cave”, one of the most evocative places that Favignana can offer. The grotto is named after from two rocks, located one next to the other in a tight submarine hug. Inside, you will discover a secret bay: one of the rarest treasure of Egadi Islands.

Of the most beautiful beaches of Levanzo, our boat tour will show you three of them:
Cala Fredda is one of the most beautiful beaches of all Egadi islands. It is located in the southern area of the island. Its small beach is composed of clear sand and gravel and the crystal clear waters host a rich and varied marine flora and fauna.
Cala Minnola is located on the south-eastern side of the island and is surrounded by a beautiful pine forest. For diving enthusiasts, about 30 meters deep from Cala Minnola it is possible to admire several archaeological remains dating back to the Greek-Roman era. Cala Minnola is the wildest cove of the island of Levanzo.
Cala Calcara is characterized by rocky coast and by the beauty of its underwater landscapes. Have a dive and you will notice the rich flora and fauna that reigns on this island. It is located on the eastern side of Levanzo and takes its name from its characteristic limestone cliffs. It is a perfect place for snorkeling and diving: in fact, a few meters away from the coast, you will see colonies of beautiful sea fans, in particular yellow and red ones, and many white octopus.
Egadi Islands are not famous for having very large beaches, instead what they are famous for, are the amazing coves that seem suspended on a deep blue, the many stacks and pristine islets that will leave you breathless during the boat tour. In particular, while the beaches of Favignana are mostly sandy, the beaches of Levanzo are characterized for being more wild and jagged, ideal to enjoy places and landscapes that still look virgin and unspoiled. The most beautiful beaches of the island of Levanzo are located within the following coves: Cala Minnola, Cala Calcara and Cala Fredda, certainly among the most beautiful bays if you want to have a swim in Levanzo. These coves are a bit difficult to walk to because of the rocky coastline and the fact that they are far from the center of the island; also, there are no refreshment points along the way, but they are extraordinary if explored by sea to fully enjoy the views, the vibrant wildlife and the crystal clear sea of the area.
If you are in Trapani and want to reach Levanzo and Favignana you can choose between two very different options: you can reach the two islands by hydrofoil or by ferry and then plan at least 3 boat trips to hop from one island to the next; or you can leave from Trapani and, with only one tour always on the same boat, you will reach and tour around the islands of Levanzo and Favignana. Choosing the boat tour to Levanzo and Favignana from Trapani you can dive into the most beautiful coves in complete relaxation, snorkel and admire the true beauty of the Egadi islands. While making your choice take into account that the ferries and the hydrofoils to the Egadi islands may be very crowded, especially during high season.
The island of Levanzo is about 2.2 miles away from Favignana, which is about 10 minutes by boat, while it is about 6.5 miles away from Trapani, that is approximately a 30 minutes boat ride. Levanzo is probably the least crowded of the Egadi islands, but its landscape made of stacks, rocks and beautiful coves, is really worth it. Its size, with an area of 10 sq km, makes it perfect for a boat tour.
