  • The first beach you should go to -...

    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...

  • The "Cathedral" of Palmarola

    Palmarola is called the Pearl of Mediterranean Sea... and if you visit it... you can see this is not an exaggeration.

    In the main strip of Ponza, along the port boardwalk, are a number of restaurants and food vendors. I'm not sure of the name, but one is a sort of window that you walk up to and order a crepe. They make it right in front of you and you can have any number of fillings put in it (my favorite was chocolate and strawberries, but they had many more choices). So if you see a place to buy crepes when you're walking around at night, don't hesitate to get one!

    by andy-g Updated Sep 16, 2004

    During summertime (usually July and August) at Frontone, a beach not far from the port, disco dancing and aperitives take place from before sunset to dinnertime. Come as you are style,(swimsuit and tshirt are well accepted) music and cocktails won't stop until dinner time. If you are young and are in Ponza, need to go there.

    Dress Code: no requirements but to be someway dressed, usually bathsuit and t-shirt or sportswear

Isola di Ponza Transportation

  • Sailing is the best way

    If you can sail and are with some friends, sailing is the most exciting way to spend some days or more in Ponza. If you can't sail, most charter companies have professional skippers for rent. Look for their addresses in the nearest cities and towns on the coast (Formia, Gaeta, Terracina, S. Felice Circeo, Nettuno, ...).Sailing in Ponza is not...

  • Hydrofoil

    From Rome, we took a train south a ways to a little city along the coast. From there, we took a hydrofoil to Ponza. There isn't much to do on the hydrofoil, but the view of the mediterranean can be quite nice if you stand up on the deck.

Isola di Ponza What to Pack

  • rattay's Profile Photo

    by rattay Written Mar 9, 2004

    Luggage and bags: A back pack is probably best so you can bring your stuff to the beach.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A swimsuit or two, sandals, beach cover up, a pair of pants/skirt and a suitable shirt for nighttime dinner and walking around. Assuming you are there in the summer, you really shouldn't need to bring too much stuff. Maybe a light sweatshirt if you are the type that gets cold when it's 65 degrees (F) outside.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: you can buy sunblock when you get there, or bring your own. Mosquito repellant might be a good idea too. Maybe some aloe vera gel for sunburns and some chapstick.

    Miscellaneous: A towel

Isola di Ponza Off The Beaten Path

  • rattay's Profile Photo

    by rattay Updated Mar 9, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ponza was a great place to rent a scooter and putt around all day. We rented a little on-and-off-road scooter for a few hours. The island doesn't have many cars, it's small, all roads pretty much lead to the same places and the weather was nice, making it the perfect place to rent a scooter. We rode around the island about 4 times, making frequent stops to take in the views. It was also a good way to see the other city on the island, which did not seem as popular with the tourists as the city of Ponza. One warning: put on the sunblock or you will have a very bad farmer's tan when you are done joyriding!

Isola di Ponza Favorites

  • Beware the mosquitos

    This was definitely NOT my most favorite thing about Ponza: One night, we slept with the windows open because it was rather warm. That was a big mistake. We woke up around 2 AM from the awful buzzing noise and found we had been eaten alive by mosquitos. We turned on the lights and realized there were a ton of mosquitos in the room feasting on us!...
