Fun in Favignana, Italy
Leaving our rental car behind in Trapani and setting off on a small ferry to the island of Favignana, we got the sense that we were in for something special. A short 25 minutes later and we arrived at the tiny port with a handful of local stalls leading up the walkway towards the small island town. The whitewashed buildings, the clearest azul water and the mountainous backdrop, I felt like we must have sailed hours to the heart of the med! With some local advice we decided to rent e-bikes and head off on an exploration of the island. Zooming around with the ease of electric power we passed fields of single storied houses scattered throughout the countryside. 15 minutes of riding with the sun on our backs and the wind cooling us and we were struck with the dazzling site of the bluest water we could imagine, almost glowing and forcing us to take off our sunnies for a double check! How could we skip a dip!? Well if you think the water in the Bay is cold – jump in the ocean off Sicily in April! Dragging ourselves away we continued our ride and were met at least every 500 meters by a new beach to explore, a converted shipwreck turned bar, rock pools and sink holes and of course an array of sunset bars that beckoned us in for an afternoon Aperol. Ending the day with a leisurely ride back to the beautiful shiny white stone square of town I couldn’t help wishing that we had a week to keep riding, exploring and enjoying the relaxed pace of this seemingly secretive island paradise!
