Alicudi is the least developed for tourism of all the Aeolian Islands. The island has only one road of 200 meters that goes from the small pier to the helicopter landing pad. Mules are the primary source of transportation for goods from the shore to the dwellings on the hillside, which cover the eastern slopes.
Anchoring is limited but some mooring buoys are available. Major works were underway on the ferry pier. We were offered a fishing boat mooring for 50€ but negotiated 35€. There was a slight north-going tide through the moorings which combined with very light wind meant the mooring buoy was alongside tapping the hull annoyingly from time to time overnight.
