Cous Cous Cruise Sicily & the Aegadian Islands

Our Cous Cous Cruise includes: music concerts, eno-gastronomic events, culinary challenges and natural marine parks to explore.

Aegadian Islands and the Zingaro Natural park are the stunning backdrop that combine a pleasant sailing vacation with the unique culinary event "Cous Cous Festival" in the village of San Vito Lo Capo, in the west side of Sicily.

 

The flavors, the culinary challenges among international chefs and the amazing natural scenery of San Vito Lo Capo bay, whose beach is considered one of the top 5 in Italy, are a 2 days stop along our west Sicily Cous Cous Cruise Itinerary.

 

The Cous Cous Fest is the International Festival that integrates different cultures, an important appointment that has been renewed for fifteen years and involves all the countries in the Euro-Mediterranean and beyond. This cruise starts and ends in Palermo, sailing to San Vito Lo Capo to enjoy the Cous Cous Fest and then sailing to the Aegadian Islands.

Itinerary

Day 1
Palermo
Set sail in Palermo heading west along the coast of Sicily passing in Capo Gallo natural park and Isola delle Femmina. Overnight in Terrasini village
Day 2
Terrasini - Favignana
Sailing from Terrasini toLo Zingaro Nature Reserve; Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve, created in 1981. Stretching along the coast for 7km between the lovely little village of Scopello in the east to near San Vito Lo Capo in the west, this park and its surrounding areas are one of the most beautiful parts of western Sicily. Windswept and weather-beaten, Lo Zingaro has been shaped by nature to stunning effect. Cliffs drop precipitously into the azure sea , mountainsides rise steeply up to heights of 1,000m and the series of delightful pebbly beaches with transparent turquoise water are as lovely as you can find in the Mediterranean. Sailing to Aegadian Islands overnight Favignana Island.
Day 3
Favignana
It is the main island of the Egadi; seen from the coast it seems to be a butterfly with spread out wings. Its name derives from “Favonius", the gentle warm western wind of the ancient Romans. At about 9 miles from Trapani (Sicily) the island, with its small beaches, beautiful unpolluted inlets and crystal clear sea, represents a desirable tourist destination that connects perfectly past to present. Here lives a small community of fishermen that has been living for centuries particularly on tuna fishing. Nowadays Favignana boasts the only profit-making "Tonnara" in the Mediterranean where its particular fishing practice consists of a complex system of nets lowered into the sea from April to July. It ends with the "mattanza" (killing the fish), a violent but traditional ritual.
Day 4
Favignana - Marettimo
Is the farthest of the Aegadian Islands: green, with tall cliffs that hang down to the warm and intensely turquoise sea, is considered one of the last unpolluted natural paradises of the Mediterranean. The characteristic of this Mediterranean pearl that makes it unique is its luxuriant nature with a rich fauna both above and below the sea. In the mountainous area wild mountain goats, boars and rabbits populate it. The island is a nest-building place of the second Mediterranean colony of the storm bird and of the Bonelli eagle. Another reason of boast for Marettimo is its caves, the most famous of them are the Camel and Thunder caves. People have a profound sense of hospitality and always desire exchanging opinions with those who arrive from afar.
Day 5
Marettimo - Levanzo
Defined as the lonely island, a natural oasis for those who love peacefulness in harmony with nature, Levanzo is the smallest and the oldest of the Aegadian Islands, its origin dates back to 200,000 years ago. Its coasts are characterized by a continuous succession of inlets and bays, each gifted with unique appeal due to the rich and rare flora that includes different endemic species (about 400). Visiting the Genovese cave you can admire the graffiti designs, dated back 9200 b.c, that testify to the presence of an ancient civilization of hunters and tuna fishers.
Day 6
Levanzo - San Vito Lo Capo
One day and night involved in the Cous Cous Festival event, the boats will be docked in the marina and all guests will be able enjoy the street food, restaurants in open spaces and Moroccan tents. Concerts and music events will be going till late evening for who want to enjoy more and more. This International gastronomic competition brings together chefs from all over the world around the undisputed star of the event - the cous cous! The dish’s rich history is an element of synthesis between cultures, and is a symbol of openness.
Day 7
San Vito Lo Capo
Sailing back to Palermo, Overnight and disembark in the morning after (Saturday). The Skipper will be happy to give the best advises for who wants to visit Palermo and stay eventually in a land accommodation.
