PONZA & PALMAROLA YACHT CHARTER
The largest of the Pontine islands, Ponza, is full of breathtaking scenery and unmissable views. Its coasts, alternating jagged beaches and small coves to be conquered only by boat, are a paradise for those who arrive in this island aboard a luxury charter. A real gem for lovers of snorkeling and scuba diving: there are numerous underwater caves and small cliffs.
Ponza, once a prominent Roman seaport, features the remains of an imposing dam, large villas, and fish farms. Approaching the coast on a luxury charter in the Pontine Islands, the outline of the terraced farms and candy-colored houses is clearly visible. The elegant Piazzetta, a gathering spot of the local high life, is the heart of the island.
Discover charming beaches on a luxury Ponza yacht charter
Opt for the soft sands of Sant’Antonio, a snorkelling heaven, for a dip into transparent waters. An old Roman passage connects it to Giancos – a stone’s throw from the marina. Another tunnel dating to the Roman times is the access point to the famous Chiaia di Luna, a crescent-shaped spot surrounded by cliffs of white tuff overlooking the sea. Other dazzling beaches include Cala Cercata, Cala Cavone, Grotta del Corallo, Cala Gaetano, and Cala Felci.
Ponza boasts 40 kilometers of rugged coastline, dotted with inlets and small bays that are best discovered on a charter. Near Le Forna find three volcanic pools carved in the tuff by wind and sea. This bewitching spot has crystal-clear waters and a rocky seabed that attracts experienced divers.
A Palmarola yacht charter: trekking trails and enchanting views
Go on interesting trekking adventures on Mounts Guarnieri, Tramontana, and Radica in Palmarola, the third island not far from Ponza and Ventotene, before retreating to your boat to chill, surrounded by wild and beautiful nature. The waters near Faraglione di Mezzogiorno house a spellbinding grotto, while the bay of La Forcina – transparent waters and sandy seabed – has boulders showing layers of stratifications and lava flows formed across the centuries. It is, however, La Cattedrale, the Cathedral, that holds prime place among Palmarola’s most beautiful spots. Here, the elements have carved basalt hollows into the coastline, forming tall narrow caves in the shape of Gothic cathedrals.
Ponza, Ventotene, and Palmarola feature evocative sights, clear waters, and secluded bays to discover on a luxury charter in the Pontine Islands.
