The first activity is to enjoy the sea. Not only from the few beaches which can be fairly crowded during high season, but also from the rocks, many of which are flat and easy to reach. Take advantage of the daily boat trips in groups or hire boats or motorboats to reach the less crowded bays, the sheltered caves or simply to go round the island to see ravines and almost certainly dolphins and turtles.

Go deep-sea diving and in just one week you can obtain your underwater licence from one of the many diving schools available.Snorkeling in warm, fairly shallow water can be fun with the chance to see amazing sea beds and shoals of coloured fish.
Try fishing with professional fishermen either from a hired fishing boat or from the shore - dinner is nearly always guaranteed!
To the west, where the vast forest areas are coloured the famous Mediterranean green, you can stroll, jog, walk or bike. Splendid horses are also available in the local stables for wonderfully scenic horse rides.

For the more laid-back, try the island's excellent restaurants serving the best fish in the world, be tempted by the delicious patisserie's offering an assortment of ricotta-based Sicilian cakes or visit the ice-cream parlours for a fresh fruit sorbet.
There's no sweeter way to finish a long day at the sea. In the heart of the summer, those in search of nightlife can visit the two discos and the open-air cinema.
