The archipelago of the Egadi Islands is located in the extreme west of Sicily, about 7 km off the coast between Marsala and Trapani, and is formed by the islands of Favignana, Levanzo, Marettimo and other smaller islands. The Egadi Islands arise in a charming crystal sea, and offer scuba-diving and snorkeling enthusiasts a rich marine ecosystem. The sea is the dominant feature, with its cliffs and beaches, but also the hinterland offers natural wonders, with a lush flora that allows walks and hiking through the vegetation, and a rich fauna especially of birds. In order to preserve the natural beauty of the archipelago, the Protected Marine Area of the Egadi Islands, the largest marine reserve in Europe, was recently established.
The main among the islands is Favignana, a peculiar butterfly shape, an ideal destination for those who love the white and golden beaches and swim in clear and transparent waters. Famous are also his caves.
