The senses tell The Pumice Quarries of Lipari

The turquoise sea

In the absence of coral reefs, it is not easy to find a turquoise sea like the one in this area of Lipari. The pumice powder has cloaked everything on the seabed and the interference with the crystal blue of the water has resulted in this almost hypnotic turquoise colour. Spend some time watching it.

The lightness and roughness of white pumice

Picking up a pumice stone and throwing it into the water is always fun to do, even if you are no longer a child. As soon as you pick it up, no matter how large it is, its light weight will surprise you. Pumice rubbed between the hands also has beneficial effects for cleaning the skin
