Mercedes walked there to visit the remnants of a bronze age village and found the bay secluded and beautiful.
Being completely open to the south this is as almost all anchorages at the Aeolian Islands, a settled weather anchorage only.
We dropped anchor at 7mtrs with good holding in sand and found ourselfes completely alone. With a magic sunset waking up in this bay in the morning, completely alone spending the day swimming to the caves on the peninsula and in the evening take the dinghy to the beach for a beer in the small beachcafé is probably as good as it gets.
In the evening day two we were joined by some other boats which was just pleasant all going ashore to the beachbar for a drink or a beer.
Bianca became the center of attention(and laughing) for her stubborn and quite weird way of intensively digging in the holes after fotsteps in the sand. It emanates from the yorkshireterriers inborn instinct to hunt voles and moles and she really does it with a lot of passion making people laugh.
On the peninsula facing south there are remnants from a bronze age village with a magnificient seaview all around.
Cruising the area of former Imperial Rome we noticed that everyone who could afford would build themselfes summerhouses by the sea.
Today in my homecountry it´s the same and as long as I can remember I have been addicted to the horizon. Perhaps thats an inborn addiction in many of us,to be on or by the sea.
