ABOUT PANAREA

Panarea is part of the Aeolian Island chain located off the coast of Italy between Naples and Sicily. Known for its dramatic, elemental beauty and a chic group of internationals and artists, Panarea is a small island-- only a few miles long-- with wild caves, rocky cliffs, the clear Adriatic sea, and tranquil swimming coves. There are no cars just little winding foot paths that lead past rustic-elegant whitewashed homes, a few friendly restaurants, bars, and one nightclub should you have the urge to dance under the stars.
