From Lipari you can see this on a boat trip. It doesn't stop and carries on to all the other Aeolian islands

We were very disappointed when we visited this area The white Cliff's were interesting but the beach was stoney like all the others We walked down a very steep pathway which was scary only to discover we could have had a lift for free !!

Dont be fooled by the pictures on internet, it is more grey than white. I hink that is really strange place for beach but definitely must see. Water is clear, you can get there by bus.

The Pumice mountain Monte Pilato has been extensively quarried and enormous white scars mark the Northern flanks. Today the quarries are no...More

Amazing my kids really loved this place and brought geology to life. Also they has great fun looking for Obsedian rocks among st the vast amounts of pumice. Also snorkeling looked like you were swimming just above the moon surface.

It's a really strange place. Besides the abandoned factory with all the huge equipments creating a strange atmosphere, the white landscape is stunning. Very white rocks everywhere, down to the sea.

Reached the beach by scooter. The white pomice wall in contrast with the emerald blue sea were breathtaking. It's not very big, many locals frequent the beach. Huge sea glass on this beach for collectors!!!!

Not every day you can see the sea close to mine of pumice stone, so I think that is a particular place where to go in Canneto (Lipari). A small tip: don't go if there is wind because the dust could be annoying.

Hello! We just came from Taormina and I would spend majority of your time here! The Aeolian islands are nice but nothing compared to Australian beaches. I would do two nights/days in Lipari. It’s an absolute must to hire a... More
