Island by Island
Lipari - the main island and the main town (called Lipari as well) is the transport hub, with plenty of hotels and makes a good base.
Vulcano - right next to Lipari, this island is dominated by the Gran Cratere volcano cone giving off clouds of sulphurous gas. This peak gives great views. The island is popular for its beaches and mud baths.
Salina - it is lush and hilly, great for a relaxing walk. Some of the film Il Postino was shot here.
Panarea - a smaller, upmarket island with great views across to Stromboli.
Stromboli - the most remote of the islands, it is little more than a volcano rising out of the sea. Popular for trips out at night to see magma spurting out of the cone.
Filicudi and Alicudi - lie to the West and are much less visited, particularly Alicudi, which is still primarily agrarian.
