Marettimo, Italy

Marettimo is the furthest away and the wildest of the three Egadi's, an island that is extremely dominated by the bulk of Monte Falcone. If you're looking for urban comforts and nightlife, this is not the place: there are only a few such facilities on the island. Marettimo is instead ideal for lovers of trekking, swimming and scuba diving. The rich depths are justly protected in the Egadi Marine Nature Reserve.

An island boat trip (ask the local fishermen) is intensely exciting. The eastern coast offers more complex scenery: very high fortresses rising up from the turquoise sea, where marine grottos open up to create fantastic plays of light. Some are so vast that they allow access to two or three boats at a time.

History has also left its traces on Marettimo: a mule track that rises from the port city to the rest of the Roman houses, while on the point of Troia, inaccessible as an eagle's nest, overhangs a sinister castle to the left, which was made into a prison by the Bourbons.
