Directions to Marettimo
Getting to Marettimo takes nearly an hour from Trapani on the hydrofoil. The island appears to be a big rocky and steep mountain that suddenly arises from a dark blue sea with white clouds hanging above.
It is a wild island with rugged coasts, but it is a very green place. In spring, Marettimo is dotted with blossoms, and there are some rare plant species to be found, so the island is a good place for botanizing and bird watching. Lemon and thyme scent the air of the island, accompanied by concerts of the cicadas. Talking about thyme, the name Marettimo comes from mare (sea) and timo (thyme).
Walk trails allow you to plan anything from a short walk to a full day's trip. Marettimo has a mesmerizing and utterly beautiful underwater life and scuba diving is an absolute must. There are diving schools that organise trips and courses.
