The second largest of the Egadi Islands, with a population of about 700 people, which doubles in the summer months. The name comes from the conjunction of two words: mar (sea) and timo (thyme), because of the abundance of thyme on the island.

The island is full of natural beauties, and on the western coast there are some secluded spots, excellent for swimming, accessible only by boat.

Rich in both flora and fauna, the island has more than 500 species of plants and you can see donkeys, horses, wild goats, rabbits, eagles and falcons.
