Our cruise ship docked off of Palmarola and interested passengers were taken in a tender around the island. The views of the island were very interesting and the water was incredibly clear. On the lee side of the island were a number of other boats and one gelato vendor who would scurry from boat to boat peddling his wares. A... More

That's the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea. Only one comment is possible, and it's Jean Jacque Cousteau comment: "That's the most beautiful island in the Mediterraneo". And if this is Cousteau thinking I think it can be truthful as long as he is the most important sea traveller in the world :)

By no means a competent sailor- not knowing my starboard from port- i used the services of cooperative barcaioli ponzesi,which is reasonably priced and offers knowledgeable local sea captain at the helm. The first morning we cruised across a rolling sea to Palmarola,a small island west of Ponza,inhabited only in summer,but with an incredible landscape that's truly unique,a kind of... More

By car join the porto of Anzio,then after 45min on the hydrofoil join Ponza (or by boat 1,5 hour from Fiumicino); rent a fast zodiac at Diva Luna, join Palmarola in 30min!! try to get there early in the morning when nobody is there!.there are no beaches but you can have wonderful...
