In front of the island the anchorage is very unstable. One person should always be on board. You can anchor close to San Vincenzo and Ficogrande.

"Pertuso" is another mooring possibility on Stromboli that is located in the village "Ginostra" on the South-West-Side of the island. There is no harbour but only a little bay for small boats.
