    The "Cathedral" of Palmarola

    by janchan Updated Jan 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The

    Palmarola is called the Pearl of Mediterranean Sea... and if you visit it... you can see this is not an exaggeration.
    The island is still quite wild, and just 30 minutes by boat from Ponza.
    Best Period to visit is June and September... when not too many tourists fill its crystal waters with any kind of boats.
    The "Cathedral" is a cliff coast made by column shaped rocks. The islands have volcanic origin.

    The first beach you should go to - Chiaia di luna

    by rattay Written Mar 9, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chiaia di Luna is the large beach that is located in a little bay formed by a beautiful cliff. It is on the opposite side of the island from the city of Ponza and can be reached by walking through the very old, dark Roman tunnel. You can also follow the road up to the top of the cliff for a wonderful view of the beach. Maybe some day I'll load a picture on here, but you can always google it if you want to see what I'm talking about. The only thing I didn't like about this beach was the stuff that looked like brown paper shreds (seaweed I assume) that would stick to your feet. Otherwise, this place was great. Also, just before the tunnel is a cute enoteca with a very nice woman who is more than happy to help you pick out a bottle of wine.

    sunset at Chiaia di Luna

    If you are in Ponza Porto in the evening, go to see the Sunset at Chiaia di Luna, it's fantastic.

    To go there, just walk to the tunnel under the mountain and you'll be there in few minutes. Bring with you a light-source, the tunnel is very dark, you'll need it to go back after the sunset.

    There is a small bar on the beach, have there an aperitive or a beer.

    Pilato's caves, Ponza

    One of the most interesting Roman age works left on the island are these caves, used maybe as fish-growing pools. They are only reachable by boat.
