You should never underestimate the beauty of your region. I had heard about Ponza Island from several friends but had never planned to visit it. Here are the 5 must-see beaches on the island of Ponza.
After having been there I can say that, despite the conflicting opinions I had gathered over the years, my experience has been quite positive. We’re talking about a mainly seaside resort, so if you are a lover of small views and crystal clear waters then this is the right place for you !
Ponza Island: 5 must-see beaches
The beach of Cala Acqua has a rocky seabed with transparent waters. This cove offers not only a suggestive landscape but also many things to discover.
Excellent for those who love diving as it is possible to find the wreck of an English transport ship lying at a depth of about 30 meters.
Furthermore, in this bay there is also the Turtle Rock whose shape recalls a sea turtle.
This cove is ideal for those who love to climb rocks. The beach shoes are mandatory and there is the possibility of rent beach umbrellas. Not overcrowded in the summer months.
Cala Gaetano is located on the north tip of Ponza. Reachable on foot, by boat or swimming from Punta dell’Ebreo. Surrounded by rocky walls, it is recommended more for diving than as a sunbathing beach.
There are no refreshment points, equipment rentals or inflatable boats. The absence of these facilities means that this cove is not very crowded even during the month of August.
Known for the presence of an archaeological site with the remains of a Roman necropolis that can be visited on foot. Perfect place for those who love to make a mix of sea and exploration.
Because of its wild nature and the effort (a bit of trekking) to reach it is a place not crowded during the summer period.
This Bay is the most suggestive of the western coast of Ponza, embraced by a naturalistic landscape between the hills of Capo Bosco and the Montagna della Corte.
Fondale clear and white sand is equipped with dining areas and bed rental. Crowded in August.
From this beach you can enjoy romantic and unforgettable sunsets. Scenery to feast your eyes!
It is located in Le Forna, reachable from the city centre by shuttle bus. To get there it is necessary to walk 300 steps carved into the rock.
It looks like two natural pools. The first surrounded by rocks and the second overlooking the sea.
There are various refreshment services, umbrella and boat/boat rental. Crowded in August.
