We’re not saying that inducing high levels of Instagram envy amongst your friends is the most important reason to book yourself a sailing trip of a lifetime, but we are definitely saying that if your socials have been missing something that only a touch of island paradise can address, look no further than a MedSailors Italy island adventure.

1. Vulcano’s Black Sandy Beaches

We imagine that stepping foot on to one of Vulcano’s iconic volcanic sand beaches is pretty much the closest you can get to experiencing a lunar landscape on Earth. With the dark sand emphasising the rich blue tones of the sparkling ocean, a few beach side snaps will have your Instagram grid looking strong in an instant.

2. Wander Lipari’s Charming Villages

With alluring winding streets to wander, holding the promise of leading you to a charming family-owned bakery, you’ll find perfect selfie spots as you celebrate the very best of Italy with your new pals!

3. Isola Filicudi’s Rocky Shoreline

Renowned for its untamed beauty, Isola Filicudi’s shoreline is peppered with stunning sea grottos and secluded coves. With a unique beauty which needs to be seen to be believed, enjoy the seafront with an evening BBQ underneath a blanket of twinkling stars, or from atop one of the island’s trails, formed when the now extinct volcano emerged from the ocean.

4. Stromboli’s Rumbling Volcano

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Europe’s most active volcano provides some prime photo taking opportunities. The hike to the tip of the crater provides some ridiculously amazing views over the landscape and ocean beyond, and if you’re up there at sunset you’ve gotta be prepared to capture some sweet time-lapses!


5. Explore Salina’s Vineyards 

One of the region’s greenest islands, Salina will instantly inject an abundance of life and rich earthy colours into your theme. Famous for its orange groves and vineyards, every second of your time on Salina – from exploring the island by scooter to sampling the local produce – will be more than worthy of a space on your grid.
