A tour of the active maw of the mountain (with a steady emission of sulfuric fumes), an hour’s hike, led us to a spectacular view of the whole chain of islands to the north and Sicily to the south. The hike is a marked walk of about 800 meters. Near the Black Sand Beach, you can soak in mud pools and hot water bubbling from the ground and pay for the nearby showers.
Near the centre of the life of Porto Di Levante, there is a supermarket next to it is a fruit and vegetable store. If necessary, get fuel only from the gas station using jerry cans. Scuba and paragliding enthusiasts will find active clubs.
