A sea that surprises

Discover the beauty of a pristine sea

One sea, many seas…. is the only way to describe the waters around the Aeolian Islands. Blue caves, bubbling waters, warm and cold currents, black sandy beaches with bright lidos and intense shades of blue and green. On top of all this, nature’s elements have created incredible rock formations, some of them with anthropomorphic features. There’s nowhere else in the world quite like it.


The Mari del Sud Resort sits in the ‘Baia di Ponente’, also known as ‘Black Sand Beach’, one of the two bays the island is famous for. The contrast between the black volcanic sand, turquoise blue sea and surrounding greenery makes this beach an enchanting and unique spot. The terrace restaurant, with its breathtaking view of the whole bay and spectacular sea stacks, is a great venue for afternoon and evening events organized by our staff.
