This experience, in a nutshell

A week on a sailing boat in the Pontine Islands is an unforgettable experience, characterized by breathtaking landscapes, crystal clear waters, and a rich cultural history.


Ponza, the largest, is a true paradise for sea lovers. Its jagged coastline is dotted with spectacular coves and caves, such as the Cave of the Sorceress Circe and the Cave of Ulysses. Cala Luna and Cala Feola are two of the most famous bays, with golden sandy beaches and turquoise waters. The port of Ponza is a picturesque village of colorful houses and narrow cobbled streets, where you can enjoy local dishes of fresh fish in the waterfront restaurants. The island also offers scenic trails for those who enjoy hiking.


Palmarola is often considered the "pearl of the Pontine" for its wild and unspoiled beauty. This island is less inhabited than Ponza, making it ideal for those looking for tranquility and direct contact with nature. Its coasts are a succession of unique rock formations, including the towering sea stacks and dramatic limestone cliffs. Cala del French is one of the most picturesque bays, perfect for snorkeling thanks to the transparency of its waters. Palmarola is also famous for its sea caves, such as the Grotta del Mezzogiorno, which can be explored by boat or swimming.


Ventotene, smaller and less touristy, is a jewel of history and natural beauty. The island is known for having been an important center of confinement during Roman times and for its ancient Roman cisterns and the Roman Port, an impressive feat of engineering carved into the rock. The waters surrounding Ventotene are protected by a marine protected area, making them ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling, with amazing marine biodiversity. Cala Nave and Cala Rossano are among the most beautiful beaches, while the village of Ventotene offers an authentic atmosphere, with its pastel-toned houses and the main square dominated by the Church of Santa Candida.


A perfect combination of adventure, relaxation and discovery.

Abbiamo fatto 4 giorni in barca alla scoperta di Ponza. Claudio è un abilissimo skipper molto attento in navigazione e non. Sicuramente un vero lupo di mare che è la sua passione. Se volete imparare anche qualcosa è perfetto dato che è anche maestro di vela e ottimo cuoco. Sicuramente torneremo. Ancora grazie Claudio per la vacanza

Persona molto disponibile e alla mano, un vero lupo di mare. Fa in modo che la tua vacanza sia un'esperienza all'ombra della tranquillità e dell'intraprendenza. Il suo motto è "Fate Vobis", data la libertà che concede ad i suoi ospiti di decidere come svolgere la propria avventura. Durante il weekend ci ha raccontato molte delle sue esperienze in mare e ci ha insegnato vari trucchetti per come muoversi su una barca a vela. ESPERIENZA CONSIGLIATA a chi vuole vivere un'avventura in mare.
