Boat trip around the island
You can see all the natural marvels of Filicudi: indented coastlines, amazing grottoes, stacks. We advice to make the boat trips with "gozzi", typical aeolian boats.


Grotto of the Bue Marino (Seal)
it is the most beautiful grotto of the island and it is situated close to Punta Perciato. In the grotto, you can sea amazing lights effects and suggesting noises. The name of the cave comes from the noises made by the sea: it sounds like ox roar.

Filicudi - La Canna Faraglione
