5 MUST-SEE BEACHES ON THE ISLAND OF PONZA

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

1- Cala dell’Acqua

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.

2- Cala Gaetano
Cala Gaetano is the perfect destination for those who love snorkeling and spending the day on a beach with little crowd. Its emerald waters are home to different species of marine flora and fauna.

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.

3-La spiaggia della Parata e Bagno vecchio

The beach of Parata e Bagno vecchio is a white beach characterized by gravel and stones. Reachable by sea or on foot from the locality of Scotti.

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.

4- Cala Feola

The beach of Cala Feola is one of the few sandy beaches on the island. It can be reached on foot along a path that starts from the Fishermen’s Village, which ends with a staircase of 256 steps overlooking the sea.

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!

5- Piscine Naturali

The natural pools are one of the most famous coves on the island. A place where the extraordinary force of nature prevails, which makes this cove unique thanks to the creation over time of inlets in the rocks due to the intense volcanic activity of the island. A beautiful bay carved into the sea.

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.ย 

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.
