Diving in Marettimo, Italy

Marettimo, known as the “Sacred Hiera” or the Sacred Island, is part of the Egadi archipelago which includes Ustica and Favignana. The furthest from Sicily, it looks like a huge mountain immersed in a green field with few cars, hotels, discos and no campsites.

Marettimo is very far from the madding crowd; it is great for people looking for some peace and quiet with just a few hundred white houses built from indigenous Tufa, nestling close to the shoreline and the harbour.

Further inland are many trails, which allow the hiker to go through almost all the territory of the island, exploring the flora, which is particular to Marettimo, the small coves and the verdant coastline.

 

Those who would like a day ‘away from it all’ can take a water taxi to take them to a secluded cove for a relaxation a romantic picnic.

Those interested in archaeology will not be disappointed either, as there are Roman ruins, a Spanish castle and a small temple which is dated back to the 1st century AD.

Diving in Marettimo

Dives in the area re proving to rank with the very best in the Mediterranean Voglia Di Mare. The Dive centre is based off the main square and their dive boat is in the port of Scala Vecchio, a 3 minutes walk away.

Marcello and his team know each dive-site intimately with diving ranging from medium to challenging, so something for all underwater adventurers. A clear picture of each dive is described in the “dive profile” (please ask for one).

Marettimo Accommodation

There is a variety of accommodation available on Marettimo, which makes Marettimo an ideal venue for club and group diving. We use fully furnished apartments, rooms and a small self-catering holiday village the Marettimo Residence; 40 self catering units: studios, one and two bedroom units and 2 bedroom suites with magnificent balconies overlooking the sea. All the units have a terrace and balcony with BBQ facilities in the gardens. The Residence is directly above the sea and a five minute stroll to the village.

Sea bathing is from the rocky foreshore below. It has typical chalets in a beautiful garden setting with tumbling bougainvillaea. Many of the chalets have views of the coastline. There is a small swimming pool. If you don’t feel like cooking you will find several typical local restaurants and coffee bars serving a traditional Sicilian menu.
