There are no purpose built tourist traps and no modern day dens of vice.
Instead you will find less than a hundred inhabitants, many fishermen, living in an unspoilt environment with wildlife in its natural habitat.
The geography of the island makes it a rather inaccessible place that is certainly not suitable for mass tourism. Even today mules still carry out the hard work of transportation along mule tracks.
Hills and valleys, steps and more steps make Alicudi an island to be conquered, suitable for enthusiasts of nature, peace, simplicity and the great outdoors.
Alicudi is for those who seriously want to rid themselves of daily stress in order to listen to their internal rhythms.
