Brief description of the holiday
We propose a week of sea and sailing in the splendid Pontine islands in the name of relaxation, sunbathing, swimming in crystal clear water, aperitifs at sunset ... but also navigation, life experience on board, conviviality and fun in contact with nature!
We will discover the islands moving slowly from one bay to another, between short sailing trips, excursions with the tender, snorkeling in the most suggestive spots; in the evening we will often go ashore to immerse ourselves in the liveliness of Ponza Porto or to savor the more intimate atmosphere of Ventotene.
This year there will be two on board, Elena and I and we will do everything to make you spend an unforgettable week!
Exclusive holiday for 4 people!
Description of the islands
The Pontine Islands are indisputably among the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean!
Despite being close to each other (Palmarola and Ventotene are respectively one and three hours by boat from Ponza) they are very different from each other despite having in common the extreme beauty of the coasts and the exceptional transparency of the water!
One of the main characteristics of Ponza , seen through the eyes of those who go by sea, is that of offering shelter in all wind and sea conditions, both because it is positioned across the prevailing winds, and for its morphology: this allows you to find almost always flat water conditions on one of the two sides of the island and a pleasant breeze coming from the land, especially in the evening hours!
Ponza is also characteristic for the colors of its volcanic rocks: white, ocher and various shades of brown create unique and fascinating compositions, present in no other island in the Mediterranean!
The most evocative part of the island is the west one, with the famous beach of Chiaia di Luna, the splendid caves of Capo Bianco which can also be traveled with the tender, the bay of Lucia Rosa and its Faraglioni, the pools of Cala Feola ... but equally beautiful are the beaches on the east side of the island such as Cala Inferno, Cala del Cuore, Cala dell'Arco Naturale, Frontone and others .
Snorkelers will be struck by the transparency of the water and the beauty of the seabed.
Ponza is also a worldly island, frequented by the international jet set and its colorful village is full of restaurants, bars and characteristic clubs.
Palmarola, on the other hand, is a desert island for most of the year, frequented only in the summer by the owners of the cave-houses, typical houses carved into the rock that overlook Cala del Porto on the west side of the island and a few other buildings. ; in Cala del Porto there is also the only restaurant on the island. Trekking lovers can walk the path that goes from the beach to the top of the island to enjoy the splendid panorama!
The east side of the island, near the Forcina rock and the Spermaturo rock , is characterized by Caribbean-colored water while in the northern part of the island there is the splendid Tramontana cove, also called Cala Cattedrale due to the shape of the overhanging rock on the sea and where you can often see groups of goats perched on the rocks in absolutely unexpected points!
To the south of the island we find another splendid bay, Cala Brigantino, bordered by the stacks of Mezzogiorno with sequences of caves and passages that enhance the colors of the water.
But Palmarola is not just this… every stretch of the coast of this island hides wonders, which we will discover while wandering around with the tender!
Ventotene is more difficult to describe because the characteristic of this island is the atmosphere: quiet, relaxing, intimate!
Seen from the sea, its dark color is striking, due to the tuff that makes up its coasts; approaching the shore you can appreciate the absolute transparency of the water and putting the mask on you will discover splendid seabeds rich in fish due to the presence of the protected marine area.
On the southern side of the island, in addition to the wide dark sandy beach of Cala Nave , there are small beaches that can be reached by tender, while on the north side we find the beaches of Parata Grande and Calarossano .
One of the main features of the island is the Roman port, dug into the tuff in the Romanesque period and still usable today; from the small harbor the small and pretty village extends upwards, ending in a large square overlooked by the Town Hall; a little further on there is a splendid balcony overlooking Cala Nave and the facing islet of Santo Stefano.
Every day ... and several times a day ... you will be distressed by the "sailor's dilemma": stay to continue to enjoy the beauty of the already discovered place or leave in search of a new place, perhaps more beautiful, perhaps less beautiful, but certainly different ...

Other important information
The tourist port of Nettuno is a few hundred meters from the Nettuno railway station: from Roma Termini the train takes about 70 minutes every hour.
carry soft bags so you can fold them up and stow them more easily (no trolley).
on the boat, clothes are rarely used: bring shorts, swimsuits and T-shirts, a light sweatshirt, a windbreaker jacket, slippers or sandals, clothes for the evening if you intend to go down; don't forget sunscreen, sunglasses, beach towel and face / hand towels.
Instead, you will find sheets and pillowcases on board.
