Palmarola is called the Pearl of Mediterranean Sea... and if you visit it... you can see this is not an exaggeration. The island is still quite wild, and just 30 minutes by boat from Ponza. Best period to visit is June and September... when not too many tourists fill its crystal waters best way is of course a sailing yacht charter so you can sail around the isle's coasts and admire all the sceneries between the rocks and the caves.
Palmarola is the most western and the second largest of the Pontine islands. If you love solitude and living in wild nature this is the most charming place you can find best if you experience it by a yacht charter. The few summer facilities available are the only inhabited places. From a geological point of view the island offers remarkable curiosities such as the oxidianic rock in its northern part, although its biggest attraction is its perfectly transparent sea. The island lies approximately 6 miles from Ponza. There are no specific tourist facilities, but there are two typical restaurants open in summer at Cala di Porto.
Palmarola has an extremely craggy coast dotted with grottos, bays, cliffs and crags that makes it a perfect for destination for a sailing vacation. Landing is possible at a small natural harbour where you can make a brief stop and take a look at the grottos excavated by the sea. The isle is uninhabited but, during fine seasons, some restaurants are opened at Cala del Porto. There is also the chance to use some accommodations.
