What to see

The diving off Sicily may not yield many sightings of large pelagic marine species unless you head further south to Lampedusa where you could spot some oceanic shark species, sea turtles, dolphins and a rare manta ray. Overfishing is a prevalent problem in the Mediterranean but divers can still have an enjoyable time especially with the interesting seascapes and shipwrecks.

At most dive sites, moray and conger eels are often seen poking out of crevices together with lobster and shrimp. Amongst beds and walls of gorgonian sea fans and sponges, find groupers, sea bream, clouds of anthias and also octopus. Closer to the reefs, look for critters like colorful nudibranch, flying gunards and crabs.

Resort Description

Le Palme Garden is close to the best dive sites and archaeological sites in the Aeolian Islands Archipelago.

This tranquil complex of garden villas is located just 50 m from the sea, in a beautiful botanical garden that was planted over a 100 years ago. Each self-catering villa can comfortably accommodate up to four guests and comes with a terrace where you can relax, have breakfast, enjoy a candle-lit dinner or simply sit and watch the jungle effect created by the overgrowing vegetation. 

The incredible diving on your doorstep will give you days and days of enjoyment, but non-diving days can be filled with day trips to the nearby historical, archaeological sites of Sicily, such as Taormina, Cefalù, Monreale, Palermo, Syracuse, Tyndaris, Milazzo, as well as the Aeolian Islands, and the great volcanoes, Etna, Stromboli and Vulcano.
