Name(s) in local language(s):
Faraglione Ranni (Faraglione Grande; Faragghiune Ranni), Faraglioni di Levante (Grotte dei Faraglioni; Grotte del Faraglione), Porto Levante, Isola di Vulcano, Lipari, Isole Eolie, Provincia di Messina, Sicilia, Italia


The Faraglione Ranni is placed very near the port.

In literature the locality is generally described under the accomunate toponym of "Baia di Levante" that means the small gulf where is the port (see also Faraglione Nico and Vulcanello mindat localities).
