Ustica Island

Ferries to Ustica Island

The tiny volcanic island of Ustica, about 6 miles wide, is the oldest of the Sicilian outer archipelago, having emerged long before the Aeolian Islands.

Both its origin and the blackness of its lava determined the choice of a name which is derived from the Latin Ustum, meaning 'burnt'.

The jagged coastline of Ustica shelters a series of wonderful caves and bays. The island is particularly popular among scuba divers who are attracted by the relatively deep dives, which are a feature of the island's volcanic geology.
