Places to visit
During your holidays in Levanzo take the opportunity to visit some of the most interesting places:
- The island’s highest point is Pizzo del Monaco, perfect for taking pictures and having a wider view of the entire island and the Mediterranean Sea. It is notable to say that it needs some effort to climb but the result will definitely not disappoint.
- Capo Grosso Lighthouse is located on the northern part of the island. Built in 1858, has a cylindrical shape and a balcony. It is active and can be approached through one of the 7 trails of Levanzo.
- At a depth of 30 meters under the sea in Cala Minnola, a wreck of a Roman cargo ship has been found, so if you visit the beach it is a good opportunity for diving.
- Last but not least, the so-called “Grotta del Genovese" cave could not be missed. Found in 1949, it is considered to be the island’s main attraction, containing paintings and graffiti from the Neolithic and Paleolithic times.
Below you can find some of the most visited Levanzo beaches:
- Dogana is a rocky beach with no facilities full of small fishing boats and kayaks but with crystal clear waters which gives the opportunity to the locals and tourists for swimming and sunbathing
- Walking on the west of Levanzo, you can find the enormous Faraglione Rock in the sea and continuing the path there is also a famous cave called Cala Minnola, good for diving and laying under the hot summer sun. Both beaches need a 20 min walk from the port
- Freda is a beach with shallow waters, ideal for children and can be reached with a short walk from Cala Dogana. A nice place to swim and relax
- Calcara is not an easily accessible beach and if you choose to visit it is better to hire a boat. If you want to go on foot you have to walk around 3km.
- Tramontana Beach is located in the north part of the island between two cliffs at a distance of 4km from the port. It is the largest bay with caves ideal for divers, accessible also by boat
