This is the only beach offered by Panarea and it's really a wonderful nature reserve. Crystal clear waters and a nice scenario will emotion everyone but the only bad thing is that it's a quite uncomfortable beach. Indeed it is not a sandy beach but full of big stone; it won't be easy to lay and relax. This is the... More

I started my walk from the center of town and was determined to find the Cala Junco ruins. So, on my own with sun lotion, hat and water in hand started with a "map" and found myself walking up, down, up down, up, up and up only to discover the map and any existing signs were useless. After walking well... More

We took a little boat out for the day and parked at Calajunco for lunch ( Panini's bought from the port ) and cold beers . A swim is always a must , just make sure you watch out for the medusa's .

We trekked there before breakfast (took about 40 minutes leisurely walk from the port) and found the pre-historic village. Beautiful, scenic views and clear water. Stone beach. The only downside was the jelly fish in the clear waters which discouraged swimming!!!

Panarea is very beautiful and different from the other eolian islands: smaller more upmarket, lots of flowers and no cars and garbage. the walk follows the shore and the prehistoric ruins are on a promontory with nice views. Would have liked to stay longer but had to travel back to hotel in Lipari wich is more like the rest of... More

Walking to Cala Junco takes aprox 30 minutes from any tourist place of the island.As you know there are no roads on Panarea just small paths where the locals travel with small golf cars or motocicle carriers.The walk passes a sandy beach,up some stairs and finally to the wonderful Cala Junco which is a promontorium into the sea.On both sides,one...

We were directed to Cala Junco as a snorkeling area, but the water was too rough. However, the hike was beautiful, the sea cliffs amazing, the ancient ruins very interesting.

Calla junco has police monitors who ticket boats in the area. Beware otherwise you will be fined when I was there seven years ago this was not a problem.

You can see Filicudi, Salina, Vulcano and Lipari and even glance Alicudi. Clear waters. Perfection. Take your camera!
