If you are visiting the major centers of Lazio and Campania, enjoy a short restorative break in crystal clear waters, at the Pontine Islands.
These islands of fishermen are a popular destination for summer fun.
The appeal of their beauty, excellent connections (they’re reachable from the mainland in a couple of hours), marinas and unparalleled reception, make them an unmissable stop.
The major island, Ponza, is magnificent: a place where nature, sea and landscape always play a key role.
Plus, tourist accommodation is attentive to every need.
Ponza, only eight square kilometers, includes rocky and sandy beaches; natural arches; stacks; pristine sea; romantic little bays where to moor; and a magnificent rocky and hilly landscape.
You can walk along its narrow streets; enter several craft shops; the many and typical places where tourists like to spend their evenings; magnificent houses with a barrel-roof and simple façades painted in pastel colors overlooking the harbor.
Ponza alone offers dozens of beaches and coves.
The most famous, the sandy and crystal clear beach of Chiaia di Luna; Lucia Rosa, loved for its sunsets; the Cala Fèola bay with natural pools; and the Frontone beach, where many go with the little boats for an “aperitivo”.
Diving passionates, here may find so many points of interest: from Roman ships, to wrecks of steamers sunk during WWII.
The Ventotene island, a splendid nature reserve and a Marine Protected Natural Area, is a small jewel: few houses, gathered around the port, and an ancient history of place of confinement. From the members of the Roman imperial families, to the opponents of fascism, who laid the foundations for our modern idea of Europe.
Palmarola is also a nature reserve. The island, for the spectacular nature and the coast is considered among the most beautiful in the world.
The uncontaminated nature also surrounds Zannone, the northernmost of the Pontine Islands, which due to its naturalistic importance, has been included in the Circeo National Park since 1979.
Finally, the small island of Gavi (700 mt., x 350mt.), totally devoid of beaches: it shows rocks emerging along the jagged coastline, and a single cave: “the grotto of Gavi”.
The culinary tradition of the Pontine Islands is one of the oldest and most tasty.
It mixes the flavors of the traditional Roman cuisine, with those typical of the sea.
