What we did is stay one night in Ginostra, a small hamlet on the other side of the island and a place that most people don’t visit. The reason why to stay and come here is the hike to Punto Corvo to see the west side of the Sciara del Fuoco. It’s an amazing walk, not really difficult through bushes of bamboo, ginestra, caper plants, jasmine,… Then at the end you see the side of the volcano where the smoke and stones tumble into the sea…. Spectacular! And…. no other tourists in sight!
