VENTOTENE A large number of natural monuments can probably be considered the largest attraction of the Pontine archipelago. Beautiful grottos and underwater caves are best explored by boat. If you want, you can go for an excursion around Ponza, which starts every day at 10-11.30 a.m. and ends at 16-17.30 p.m. at the port in case there is no storm. On the road, you can not only enjoy the beauty of the island but also visit bays that are inaccessible from the land. The cost of a traditional Italian lunch, most often with pasta or risotto, is also included in most of these sea voyages.

You can explore Ponza by hiring or renting a motorboat. Be sure to visit the rock of Capo Bianco, in the above-water part of which there are several caves, whose dimensions allow you to calmly swim inside on a small boat. In the middle of the sea, sail through the Natural Arch, a rock in the shape of a gate. Take the time to thoroughly survey the grottos of Pilate, a system of artificial caves and pools, which can be accessed from the sea and from the land.
The other islands of the archipelago are also worth visiting. The uninhabited Palmarola will please the travelers not only with the beauty of the rocky shoreline but also with cave houses, the only man-made objects on the island. Zannone captivates you with a virgin nature and an opportunity to observe the migratory birds that nest here during migration. Moreover, the rare stone oaks are still growing on this island. Gavi captivates by its single house on the mountain and a magnificent view from its top, and San Stefano will please with the views of an extinct volcano and a preserved old prison. Copyright

Due to the good visibility and unique relief of the seabed on the Pontine Islands, many divers come here every year. In addition to the many underwater caves and grottos, an American cargo ship, which sank at a relatively small depth of 21 meters in the Pope Bay near Ponza during the World War II, is also available for research. Font Bay, the Bay of Water, the bay of Feola, the rocks of Luci Rosa – those are just some of the natural sites, whose underwater beauty can please both the experienced divers and the beginners. Snorkeling fans will also feel comfortable on the Pontine Islands.

If you want to go fishing, the most comfortable time for this is from May to mid-October. There are dorado, sea bass, barracuda, yellowtail kingfish, and many other representatives of the Mediterranean underwater world. You can fish from the shore, but fishing in the open seas will bring you much more delight. You can rent a boat and go fishing yourself or use the services of an instructor and learn all about the intricacies of fishing on the Pontine Islands.
IL FARO VENTOTENE On any island, the easiest way to get somewhere is to walk. Only Ponza and Ventotene are populated in the whole archipelago but even they can’t boast to have a large territory. In Ponza, it is generally forbidden to use personal transport, so you only can rent a car here. However, for a comfortable journey around the island, there is enough public transport, and it is cheaper and easier to rent a bike or a scooter. And remember the Italians do not care much about the transport schedule, and therefore the bus will not always come at the time when you might expect it.
