Beaches · Landmarks · History Museums
The beaches of the islands of Sicily--seven of which are inhabited--are known for particularly thin sand reminiscent of talcum powder. The minor Sicilian islands form an archipelago, combining a variety of volcanic landscapes. While some of these satellite islands thrive on tourism, like the popular World Heritage-listed Aeolian Islands, others are tranquil and nearly deserted, like the Aegadian Islands. Sicily's islands offer a wealth of history, as well as plenty of things to do, like swimming, sailing, or hiking.
