What to see near the port of Vulcano
The first place you come across as soon as you arrive in Vulcano is undoubtedly the Acque Calde beach. Another must-see beach is that of the "Black Sands". In the southern part of the island, however, there are the Gelso, Punta dell'Asino and Cannitello beaches.
Beaches, however, aren't the only attraction on the island. To the north of the island, in Vulcanello, it is possible to visit the "Valley of the monsters", so called because of the singular rocks present there and similar to frightening mythological creatures.
If you decide to spend a stay in Vulcano, an excursion to get to know the island and in particular the Gran Cratere della Fossa, the main one of the Aeolian island, is a must. Along the path that will lead you to the panoramic point, you will be able to admire not only the crater, but also the Solfatare di Vulcano.
