Sicily! Part 3 . . .
6. Favignana. Favignana is a tiny island off the northwest coast of Sicily, reachable by ferry from the city of Trapani. It’s one of the Aegadian Islands. This little island is not for everyone. There didn’t appear to be any fancy hotels and all of the beaches are hard to reach, with rough, albeit crystal clear blue, waters. You definitely need a car to get around the island, so we brought our car on the ferry. At first we were surprised by its rusticness and the unwelcoming nature of the stone land and its wild waters. However, it quickly grows on you. There is one town center with fantastic bars and restaurants, and after two days there you start to recognize people because the village and entire island are so small. So we started to get the feeling, again like in Panarea, that we’d discovered a hidden gem and all of our research had paid off. We didn’t meet a single American or hear any English on this island, which is a mark of a quality vacation for my husband.
This little island is extremely photogenic, so while I planned on writing up the last city of our Sicily tour in this post, I think that will have to wait until later in the week . . . for now, hope you enjoy all these photos of Favignana.
