Travelling to the Islands
The best way to reach the Egadian Islands is from Trapani where an airport serves international visitors. Regular bus services also run between Palermo and Trapani should you fly into the capital city.
There are frequent passenger ferries from Trapani to all three of the islands as well as car ferries which take longer to reach the islands but offer cheaper tickets. Tickets and timetables can be purchased from the kiosks at the jetty.
In terms of getting around, Favignana is the only island of the three that actually has roads - it is unlikely you will need your car in the Egadis, plus there are vehicle restrictions in operation.
Places to stay
Our self-catered villas have been hand-picked for their unique features and offer all that you might need for a comfortable stay on your holiday in Sicily. Visitors to Favignana might enjoy a stay in the luxury Suite Aegusana, a villa situated just a few minutes away from Cala Azzurra and Cala Rossa, two of the most beautiful bays in Sicily. Boasting a private pool, vibrant Mediterranean garden and sunny terraces, this villa is suitable for families and groups looking for an elegant Egadian Island stay.
Alternatively, couples might prefer the intimacy of a traditional fisherman’s house on Marettimo’s shores. At Casa Marettimo you can take your pick of two terraces to relax on – one with stunning sea views and the other providing a peep into traditional village life. A peaceful retreat in a simple abode, boat rental, shopping and maid services are available on request.
