Pontinian Islands

A new route we introduced for 2019

Beaches, rocks, unspoiled nature and crystal clear sea are the main characteristics of the Pontine islands, which make it an ideal destination for Gulet cabin cruises. Each island in the archipelago is different:

Ponza the largest island of the archipelago has rocky and jagged coasts, where there are alternate bays and sandy beaches. The most famous beach is Chiaia di Luna, a very small sandy beach reachable on foot, surrounded by a high cliff overlooking the sea.the other most famous are the Cliff and the Faraglioni of Lucia Rosa. In addition to the sea you can see the old village of the island, with its colorful houses of fishermen, the promenade along the marina, the alleys that penetrate the town where you can discover craft shops and typical restaurants.

Ventotene is barren with dark beaches of volcanic origin. The inhabited center develops around the port and only one road crosses this wild island. Together with Santo Stefano, Ventotene forms a protected marine area.

Palmarola, a wild and lush island, is a nature reserve. Here too we find a predominantly rocky and jagged coastline where there are wide bays and beaches, in front of which  are rocks and stacks.
