It is the westernmost island of the Aeolian archipelago and like the others was formed by volcanic activity. Alicudi is a really "off the beaten path" destination, it has roughly 100 inhabitants which mainly live off fishing and agriculture. They are located on the eastern side of the island, the western side is uninhabited.
Walking. There are no streets on the island, only paths on the eastern side which connect the harbor to the village and the top of the mountain.
