Cala Junco is my favorite place on Panarea, and anybody who is reasonable fit should visit it. The walk probably takes about an hour from the Panarea port (it could be faster, but we kept stopping all the time to take photos). The first 45 minutes are along the town roads. The last 15 minutes are on the trail that... More

my headline basically sums up our little outing. There is not an awful lot to see when you get ton the prehistoric settlement but the walk there is good (lots of stairs - so a minimum of physical fitness is required) and the views of the bay and to the other islands are magnificant.

Being a historical sight , boats are not allowed to enter , but you can swim and float to your hearts content . The water is the most beautiful collection of different blue's . Bellissima x

It is a good 30/45 minutes from the main street with lots of ups and downs. The view on the road is spectacular and the walk allows you to discover an hidden side of the island with splendid typical eolian houses. There is no need to bring water and/or food as there are a few places on the road.

Cala Junco is a very nice place to visit. Difficult to reach with a rocky way. But it deserves it all. Nice swim with warm and clean water. Don,t forgget to bring your mask.

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!!!
