How many days in Tropea and Stromboli?

I'm going to be in Calabria and Sicily soon; we want to visit Tropea and the Aeolian islands. How many days do you think each merit to see and take advantage of the town and not be too idle or bored? We like the beach quite a bit but will also be spending more time in Sicily at other beach towns.

Thanks!

How many days will you have in total?

And how many other days will you spend in Sicily?

Are you only interested in Stromboli, or do you plan to visit the other Aeolian islands as well?

People who usually visit Tropea go to Stromboli just for the day. There are companies that run excursions from the port and they leave early afternoon and return late at night. This is so the boat can circle the island in the dark and the tourists can better view the volcanic activity. You can stay a night or two there, but there really isn't much to do on the island.

Tropea is a lovely little town, especially if you enjoy the beach, but since you are going to be in Sicily as well, I would think 5 days would be good. It is a small town and its beaches are the main attraction.

Stromboli is magical, and there are beaches on Stromboli as well, black volcanic beaches.

If you were to stay on Stromboli, you could also visit the other Aeolian islands.
