Punta dell’Asino Beach

La Spiaggia di Punta dell'Asino a Vulcano fotografata dal mare

The Punta dell’Asino beach is located on the southern coast of the island of Vulcano. It can be reached on foot along a steep path from the village of Gelso. Alternatively, you can get to the beach from the sea by paying for a taxi boat ride. The sand, as in all areas of Vulcano, is dark in colour because of its volcanic origin. From the Punta dell’Asino beach, there is also a path leading to Capo Grillo, which offers one of the best panoramic views of the island. There is a lido called Asino Beach, where you can rent parasols and deck chairs, as well as pedal boats and canoes. The lido also has a restaurant with an extensive menu that includes pizzas, flatbreads, salads, sandwiches and traditional Aeolian fish dishes. In the evening, this small bay is enlivened by live music and it is possible to enjoy one of the cocktails prepared in the Asino Bar from aperitif time onwards.
