On the third day in Marettimo, I explored the southern end of the island. Winds were still high, ferries were not yet running. I ditched my pack partway up the mountain and scampered about unencumbered. The above view is of the southernmost point of the island, looking off to the other two Egadi Islands, Levanzo and Favignana.

Once again, one did not want to misstep. The steep drops were breathtaking.

There were no campsites here at all. The mountain rose directly out of the sea without any place for beaches. By the end of the day, the ferry was running again. I hopped aboard to return to Trapani. It would have been nice to stay longer in Marettimo but I wanted to be sure I could leave in time to catch my flight. I would love to return here and spend a week exploring further.
