Small, barren, inhospitable at first sight. This is Alicudi, difficult to access and therefore has a special charm, the most intact and primitive compared to all other islands.
Alicudi Porto: A little house, two grocery stores and consumer staples, the post office. No banks, no service. Alicudi Porto is a place where time has stood still, a simple fishing village, there are also microscopic fractions of groups of four or five houses, farms and small higher on the terraces that climb on the island as a ladder. A place of tranquility and traditions, in which enjoy absolute peace and hospitality of an authentic and rooted people.
The beaches and the sea: between the narrow inlets of the island, and looking from the granite coast, are hidden some beaches. They meet, set in the coast almost completely uniform, in the southeastern area, the height of the small town of Bazzina. Quiet, frequented by a few boaters and destination of some lovers of diving and enjoying the waters rather low and the vitality of flora and marine fauna in these waters mostly undisturbed. The only beach within walking distance is the small beach of Alicudi Porto, opposite the small village.
