Marettimo - The pearl of the Egadi Islands
We are on the wildest, most uncontaminated and rocky island of the Egadi Islands... The Island of the Caves on the Sea!
Traveling along its circumnavigation there are more than 400 caves and inlets, many of which can only be reached by sea, on board a dinghy or the boat of some skilled fisherman!
It is said that Marettimo is Ithaca, perhaps for this reason that getting lost among its coves and most hidden corners gives you the sensation of finding yourself again!
In the waters of Marettimo, fishermen spotted some specimens of monk seals which now seemed to have disappeared from these waters.
Here you will not find beaches equipped with beaches, umbrellas and bars... rather small coves surrounded by nature, silent, bathed by crystal clear waters and full of fish!
Cala Bianca - This cove leaves you speechless from the first glance. She appears almost suspended in the air, a cone of turquoise water, which will dazzle you with her beauty.

Marettimo, the westernmost of the Egadi islands, is about 20 miles from Trapani. It has a surface area of 12.3 km2 and reaches its highest peak with Monte Falcone at 686 m above sea level. As well as being the furthest from Sicily, it is also the wildest and most uncontaminated. It has just 680 inhabitants.
Its name of Greek origin Hierà Nésos means “sacred island”. What we know it by today, however, derives from the Latin Maritima, probably due to the abundant presence of wild thyme on the island.
