THE EGADI ISLANDS by Visit Sicily

The Egadi Archipelago, formed by the islands of Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo and the islets of Formica and Maraone, is an extraordinary synthesis of history and nature . Many terrestrial and underwater archaeological finds, dating back to the Paleolithic era, testify to the permanence of people coming from every corner of the Mediterranean, which have given rise to the history of the Western world. This is the largest protected marine area in Europe where large prairies of poseidon, as a large submerged tropical forest, provide a valuable habitat for the reproduction of many species of fish, a great variety of resident and migratory birds, extraordinary cetaceans, Caretta Caretta sea turtles and less sporadically the rare Monk Seal.
