Lipari is known for some of its beautiful beaches and the best way to have a panoramic view of this island is to take a tour using any vehicle such as a car, a bicycle or a scooter. Canneto, Papesca, Acquacalda and Porticello are some of the best beaches around the island. Along its north coast, one may be able to catch a glimpse of pumice and obsidian caves. You may also be able to observe the landing bridge meant for carrying the extracted minerals across ships, when mining was still a main activity of the area. Papesca (photo) is a lovely beach where the remains of mining can still be found, along with the presence of pumice. As you go towards Acquacalda, you can find Rocche Rosse and see lava formations in different shapes and sizes.
