Historical documents on Vulcano tell stories of a violent and explosive volcano (the last eruption was in 1888). The predominant feature on the island is a cone volcano, Gran Cratere.
Volcano has a small, secure port in a protected bay, also good for anchorage.
Ashore: within walking distance from the port are restaurants, shops, the trail up the Gran Cratere, mud bathes, black sand beaches, and bubbling hot water springs.
Porto di Levante: anchor in the scenic bay or moor at the floating pier, near the city centre and mud bathes.
Gelso/Cannitello: isolated beaches of fine black sand surrounded by green hillsides covered with vineyards.
Grotto Cavallo: anchor near the grotto and the unique natural pool of Venere Gran.
Cratere la Fossa: Hike up the crater, it has steam vents and an incredible view of the other islands in the archipelago.
Sulfur Mud Bathes: walk through the city and stop at the therapeutic mud bathes and beach with bubbling hot water heated by volcanic gas.
Vulcanello: hike up Vulcanello, with panoramic views of Lipari, and explore the Valle dei Mostri with strange lava formations.
Steeply shelving shore. No refuse disposal ashore apart from small litter bins. Restaurants, shops, pharmacy, chandlery, car and bike hire and ATM’s. Long and fairly hard climb up to the top of the volcano but worth it for the view. If you take your dinghy into the small marina you have to pay. Better to take it up on the black sand beach. Hot mud baths at 4 € plus 1€ for a shower. Picturesque anchorage.
