In the afternoon we visited the island of Vulcano with a high concentration of sulfur in the soil (as you can see from the pictures where the rock is yellow) and this will cause an overwhelming smell typical of this mineral, so strong that it could be already feel from the boats as we headed towards the harbor. Also, being precisely on a volcano, the Island's temperature is a few degrees higher than the other 6 islands and the difference is will constant throughout the year. Typical of this island are the mud (where if you dive you stink of sulfur for more than a week) and the beautiful black sand beaches (of volcanic origin). In addition to all this natural geology beauty, the sea is not far behind: the water is crystal clear and very warm and be immersed for hours is inevitable!
