Riserva Naturale Isola di Panarea

Sicily

Nature Reserves, Parks & Gardens

The island of Panarea is the smallest island of the Aeolian islands, boasting lush green, crystal clear waters and a rocky volcanic coastline. It is of volcanic origin and in the area of the dock of San Pietro there are fumaroles, hot seawater geysers and a source with water that reaches 50 ° C. Between the islets Lisca Bianca and Bottaro the water can reach the temperature of 100 ° C. Interesting is the archaeological site of Capo Milazzese where the remains of a Bronze Age village were found.

Panarea is full of plants, many of them endemic, like the Aeolian cornflower, samphire and sea lavender. Capers, broom, prickly pears, wild olive and mastic trees abound. There are black rats and wild rabbits and in the air you'll see with a little luck silver gulls, ravens, nightingales, falcons and Cory's shearwaters.
