➢ Enjoy the sea to the full

Our aim is to help you discover the untamed natural beauty along the coastlines of the archipelago. External rental services, guided tours of the coastline and kayaking courses for those devoted to sport and adventure are available for guests and visitors. All the instructors have been certified by the Italian Canoe-Kayak Federation and the Italian Tourist Canoe Federation.

The unpolluted, crystal-clear waters around the islands offer an array of exciting diving experiences. Encircled by the bubbles flowing out of the volcanic vents in the sea bed or immersed in the crater of an extinct volcano …. there are plenty of opportunities for a simple adventure or a pure adrenaline rush. Qualified instructors will accompany those who are diving for the first time or provide the more experienced with all the equipment they need. Some local flora and fauna species are found exclusively in this part of the world.


For enthusiasts and beginners

Marine life enthusiasts can enjoy truly extraordinary underwater trails. Diving schools on the island comply with national and international rules and regulations. A variety of courses are available, with professional instructors certified by FIPSAS (Italian Fishing and Diving Federation) and CMAS (World Underwater Federation). The Saracen Diving Centre is very close to the Mari del Sud hotel beach and offers special discounts to our guests.



Trekking is an ideal way to explore Vulcano’s uncontaminated natural surroundings and breathtaking scenery. The trails follow naturally-formed paths, and trekkers can use maps or hire a guide to accompany them. A hike to the Great Crater takes about 50 minutes and allows you to discover the southern part of the island and admire one of the most beautiful views in the whole archipelago. The trail goes up the side of the mountain and offers stunning views of the Vulcanello Peninsula, the islands of Lipari and Salina on the left, Alicudi and Filicudi in the distance, Panarea and its islets to the right and Stromboli with its plumes of smoke in the background.

Sailing & windsurfing

A perfect place to go sailing … so many islands to explore, propelled by the wind. So many itineraries to discover the wonders of the Aeolian archipelago. Imagine the excitement of spotting a dolphin, the adrenaline rush of maneuvering a sailing boat in a regatta, the fun of racing the waves across a deep, intense blue sea …… In one word, sailing.
