The province of Trapani is undoubtedly all beautiful both from the point of view of the seaside, and from the point of view of the landscape and culture.Each resort has its particulatities and characteristics that, according to the type of vacation, can be ideal or not. In fact, every tourist is seeking a different experience during their holiday and the towns of the province of Trapani, while having many features in common, are differentiated by features that make them unique. In a previous article we saw the features of Trapani compared to Favignana and San Vito lo Capo. Today we will see the 7 reasons why its worth sleeping in Favignana rather than in Trapani and San Vito lo Capo. As always we start by publishing some resources. - Our photogallery - Our video gallery - The page of Trapani- The page of San Vito lo Capo- The page of Favignana
1) The crystalline sea
Favignana and the Egadi islands are all without a doubt at the top of the scale when it comes to the quality of the bathing experience. This sea is the epitomy of perfection and absolute cleanliness.If you search for a quality bathing experience, Favignana ( but also San Vito lo Capo) is the appropriate choice.Favignana, compared to San Vito lo Capo, is larger so it has more beaches and more coves, giving visitors the opportunity to be able to find their place within this ecosystem.The top of the top is undoubtedly Cala Rossa, as indicated by the portal Skyscanner as the best beach in Italy in 2014.
2) Disconnect from stress
Favignana is an island par excellence, and is located far away.Far away from stress, as well as traffic, and daily chaos.The pace slows down here, we move on foot or by bicycle. Cars are very rare in circulation and nature trumps technology. After a year of electronic sounds, horns , subways, gray and professional human detachment, in Favignana you can rediscover peace and fit harmoniously into the natural flow of time.If you are looking for parties, nightlife, movement, chatter and bustle, do not stay in Favignana. But if you are trying to find yourself and your place in nature, the Egadi are your destination.
4) There is a whole archipelago waiting for you
(Chiesetta Bizantina - Marettimo) Favignana is the largest island and the most worldly, but the approach to nature can be more extreme by visiting the other 2 islands Levanzo and Marettimo. Both fascinating , both wild and as hot as the reassuring womb of the earth.In Levanzo it is possible, among other things, to explore a cave dating back to the Paleolithic and pictograms where there are traces of the distant past.Marettimo, for its part, is the most distant but also the most mystical island. An island where you can really get in touch with yourself strolling immersed in nature.If Favignana you might meet a car here and there, in Marettimo there are no cars and some trips can be made on the back of mules.Here you can experience the infinite and return to civilization to tell the tale without being believed by those who have never experienced these borderlands.
4) The song of nature.
On the Egadi islands, everything is shaped to give a natural experience to the tourist. Suffice it to say that among the 3 islands the largest marine reserve in Europe was established and this has led, of course, not only to the protection of existing species, but also to the migration of new specimens which have found refuge and protection.It is not unusual in fact, during some boat trips, to find dolphins that follow in the wake of the boat or even whales intent on blowing air and water into the sky.On the coasts of Marettimo, frequently seen specimens of Caretta Caretta Turtles and Monk Seals are frequently seen frolicing quietly through the waters of the archipelago.
As the islands have very low or even absent traffic, the usual smell of exhaust fumes to which we are accustomed vanishes as soon as we step out from the hydrofoil. The smells are amplified and stand out.The smell of nature and flowers and of course the smell of the sea permeates these territories and the history of these islands is woven into the sea.
The inhabitants of the Egadi islands, living isolated for 8 months a year, have cultivated a genuine curiosity about foreigners providing, in turn, a curious social living worth experiencing observing and studying.In this exchange of cultures a dual social experience is enclosed in the islands. The Sicilian hospitality joins the desire to know each other without losing one´s own traditions and without trying to impose, but rather complementing and enriching each other.
7) Getting back into shape
Forget gyms with the smell of sweat, the neon lights and the music blasting in your ears. On the Egadi islands you getl into shape in the most natural way possible.You can get your spirit and mind into shape for all the above reasons that can be summed up in the word: relax.But to get back into shape physically is also possible because the islands are a paradise for lovers of hiking and walking.Renting a bike is certainly the wisest choice to enjoy Favignana and get in shape in a natural way.
