Boat trip at the Cyclops Coast


Boat Trips & Mini-Cruises Things to do with children

The islands of the Cyclops are the three tall islands which can be found along the Ionian coast north of Catania. To get there you can catch the glass-bottomed boat from the port of Acitrezza, which departs every day from 9.30 to 13.00 or 16.00 - 18.00 and sais between Lachea Island and the port of Acitrezza.

Legend has it that the rocky islands were created by a Cyclops who had been blinded by Odysseus. The Cyclops was furious, grabbed parts of Mount Etna and threw them at Odysseus. And there they are still, lying picturesquely around in the bay of Acitrezza.

Try diving or snorkelling and explore the natural beauty of the sea with its colourful life, fish and many wonders kept under the water.

Take a daily mini-cruises sailing towards the coast with an opportunity to have a swim, try fishing and if you don't catch anything, mingle with the locals and taste some superfresh fish in one of the cute seafood restaurants.
