Suggested Excursions
around
Capo d'Orlando

Choose Capo d’Orlando for your vacation and explore the spectacular territory of the Nebrodi Park.

Park guides have prepared excursions of various difficulties: there are options suitable for families with children, for avid hikers who occasionally tackle challenging trails, and for those in excellent shape looking to test themselves on our mountains.

You’ll discover the most picturesque corners and breathtaking views of the territory behind us: crystal-clear waterfalls, the beauty of high-altitude lakes with views of Mount Etna, the soaring eagles and griffon vultures from the cliffs of Rocche del Crasto, and the dense forests that characterize this evergreen land of Sicily.

In the Nebrodi Park, traces of human presence from the past 5,000 years can be found. Starting from the Argimusco plateau with its megaliths, to the small Tholos in the territory between Floresta, Raccuja, and San Piero Patti, and ending in the many villages with Arabic, Carolingian, and Byzantine influences visible in the buildings and reflected in local dialects.

It’s an unusual Sicily that surprises most travelers with its fertile land and a cool, water-rich microclimate. Come and discover the Nebrodi and Capo d’Orlando.

Suggested excursions

Argimusco Plateau

The Argimusco plateau generates mystery and disbelief. The vast spaces and enormous megaliths of the Argimusco plateau are unknown to most who come to visit us. When you find yourself in front of the Eagle Megalith or the intense figure of the Orant, you may also feel that this place is as human as it is divine. The huge megaliths are aligned perfectly so that the sunlight passes directly between them at sunrise and sunset on the days of the spring and autumn equinoxes.

The location is easily accessible by car. You will travel on paved roads until just a few meters from the entrance to the property, which is fenced to control livestock. The path from the road to the megaliths is only a few hundred meters long and is easy even for children and people not used to uphill paths. We can arrange your trip to Argimusco with a guide who will accompany you to discover this place, often referred to by experts as the Sicilian Stonehenge.

Catafurco Waterfalls

Have you ever dreamed of bathing under a waterfall of refreshingly cool water?

The Catafurco Waterfalls, a short distance from Costa d’Orlando and the village of Galati, are easily accessible. You can drive to within a few meters of the bridge that leads to the trail, and after a hundred meters or so, dip your feet into the always chilly water that flows from the Nebrodi Mountains.

Even your children can play in this natural pool while admiring the nests of birds of prey on the cliff above the waterfall.

Access to the road leading to the waterfalls is from the district of San Basilio, where you’ll also find a traditional eatery. In the nearby village of Galati, you can visit the ruins of the castle, which offers a splendid panoramic view of the valley.

Aeolian Islands

From the port of Capo d’Orlando, the Aeolian Islands are reachable in about an hour by boat. You can use scheduled departures by motorboat from the port of Capo d’Orlando or travel to Milazzo and take a hydrofoil.

The islands offer landscapes of incomparable beauty, with their volcanoes, stunning cliffs, and beaches. You can take a boat tour, hike to the crater of Vulcano, swim in the bay of the black beaches, or visit the historic center of Lipari, where within a few meters you’ll find remnants of 3,000 years of history.

You can also opt for a night excursion departing from the port of Capo d’Orlando to admire the eruptions of Stromboli from the sea, beneath the Sciara del Fuoco.

A day trip to the Aeolian Islands provides unforgettable experiences for travelers of all ages, whether families with children or adults. It’s an additional experience to add to your journey through the lush Sicilian landscape of the Nebrodi Park.

By boat along the coast

At the port of Capo d’Orlando, you can rent boats to explore the coastline from the sea.

For boats with engines under 8 horsepower, you do not need a boating license. If you prefer to be guided to swim in the most beautiful coves and receive more information about the sights from the sea, you can join one of the daily organized excursions.

Boat excursions are organized only on days with favorable weather forecasts and are recommended even for families with children. If you enjoy fishing, fishing trips can also be organized, including trolling or bottom fishing.

Tindari: The Greek Theater and the Monastery

One of the most picturesque places along our coast is the stretch where the Greeks chose to build the theater of their colony, offering a magnificent view of the Aeolian Islands.

Today, this site hosts performances and shows, bringing life to the summer evenings along our shores. Within the archaeological park of the theater, you can also explore the remains of a Roman villa with its baths, and another building, mistakenly referred to as a basilica, which served as an entrance to the agora, the main square.

In addition to the archaeological park, you will find the sanctuary dedicated to the Black Madonna of Tindari, offering views over the nearby Marinello lakes. A visit to Tindari is recommended for everyone, whether adults or children, history enthusiasts, or archaeology lovers.

Amazing villa, definitely 5 star. Fabulous views from every room; can see the sea from even the 3 double bedrooms and ensuite! Spacious and a high quality finish. Swimming pool is about 10m long, plenty of loungers. Only gripe is that the sound systems are great quality but none connect via Bluetooth, so can't play music unless you have the right cable or CDs.
To get to the villa, go up a steep hill to the very top, through the barrier and immediately right. An interesting drive.
Will definitely return. - 06/08/2023

I was sincerely enchanted by the Family Apartments near the sea. This coastal paradise offers a stay experience that far exceeds expectations.
The décor of the apartments is simply sublime, combining modern design with touches of homely comfort. Every detail has been carefully taken care of, from the comfortable bed to the well-equipped kitchen, everything has been designed to ensure maximum comfort and functionality.
The location by the sea is incomparable. Days spent sunbathing on the beach and evenings relaxing on the balcony with the fresh sea breeze and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, made our holiday even more special.
But what really sets the Family Apartments apart is Claudia's extraordinary hospitality. His welcome was both professional and warm. Claudia demonstrated a dedication and customer focus that is rarely seen. Thanks to his expertise and availability, our every need was anticipated and satisfied.
In summary, the Family Apartments offer a perfect combination of comfort, location and hospitality. This is the perfect place for a family vacation or a romantic excursion. We give 5 stars without hesitation and can't wait to come back!

Thank you Claudia and Family Apartments for making our holiday truly unforgettable! - 06/08/2023

Our stay was made wonderful by our helpful and accommodating host. He made the stay enjoyable and lovely! Our apartment was in the perfect location. One block from the beach and boardwalk and literally a 5 minute walk to the center of town. The apartment had been refurbished and was like new. Would we go back? ABSOLUTELY!!! - 13/06/2023

4 star rating Bellissima la posizione Siamo stati ad agosto in questa struttura . Avevamo già soggiornato lo scorso anno , ed essendoci trovati bene , abbiamo replicato . La posizione è bellissima e il terrazzo vista mare stupendo , ma un consiglio … fate maggiore attenzione alla manutenzione degli appartamenti . Abbiamo trovato bicchieri e tazze in numero insufficiente , sedie del terrazzo rotte e inutilizzabili , rivestimento del divano consumato e veramente poco pulito . Un vero peccato , con poco di più sarebbe perfetto !! - 04/09/2022

4 star rating Vista mozzafiato in struttura d'elite Noi abbiamo alloggiato in Villa Lipari, l'ultima del parco ville Costa D'Orlando che si trova in cima a Contrada Alta Scafa, a Capo D'Orlando.
La casa è moderna, rifinita in ogni dettaglio con cura, molto pulita e spaziosa.
La vista è mozzafiato, soprattutto dalle balconate delle camere al piano primo, ma anche dalla piscina infinity, che al tramonto diventa pazzesca. è una piscina piccola, ma in Sicilia si va per il mare e ci siamo entrati in 11.

Inizialmente il nostro gruppo era composto da 13, successivamente siamo diventati 11, e direi per fortuna!
La descrizione sul sito costadorlando.com non riportava che l'ambiente al pianto seminterrato è totalmente separato dagli ambienti piano terra/zona giorno e piano superiore con camere.
Si accede tramite una scalinata esterna dalla zona piscina. Inoltre, ambiente molto umido.
Infine, riportava 3 camere, in realtà sono due camere e un divano letto nel salotto, con materasso ultra sottile.

Nel piano superiore, le camere erano spaziose, fornite di tutti i comfort, pulite, abbastanza isolate tra di loro. I bagni tutti funzionanti, eccetto la doccia del bagno superiore che perdeva. Una camera del piano superiore non ha il divano letto matrimoniale come riportato in descrizione, ma letto singolo.

Divano letto in salotto molto più confortevole di quello del piano di sotto, con l'unica pecca che è in salotto!!!

Alcuni dettagli del servizio li avrei migliorati: due telecomandi dei condizionatori non avevano le pile di ricambio, le ho richieste e non mi sono state consegnate; la Jacuzzi esterna al momento della consegna della casa non funzionava, si doveva accendere dal quadro interno, inoltre avevano cambiato l'acqua da poco ed era congelata, inutilizzabile per l'intera settimana; la porta finestra principale aveva la serratura rotta che quindi non si chiudeva, ma non ci è stata riparata e ci siamo affidati alla host che ci ha detto che non sarebbe mai entrato nessuno.

Nel complesso, esperienza più che positiva per ciò che concerne la casa, probabilmente non ci tornerei ma per la città che non offre molto divertimento. - 07/09/2021

4 star rating Tutto bello e funzionante Avrei dato anche 5 stelle se non fosse stato per un paio di piccoli, insignificanti particolari. Una vecchia sedia e un tavolino un po' rovinato. In ogni caso la struttura è perfetta, consegnata pulitissima, personale attento ad ogni esigenza (anche la sera) e le biciclette ad uso degli ospiti veramente utili. - 09/07/2021
