Ponza, the main island, is only 8 km long and 2km at its widest point. At the landing, the town offers a unique visual spectacle: a tangle ofhouses, with pastel-colored flat roofs, perched above a quay that runs through the harbor. More than 40 km of coastline, plenty of inlets, bays, beaches and underwater caves make it an invaluable destination for snorkelers. Land of Greeks and Romans, Ponza offers important archaeological legacies, such as
the Roman necropolis, the imperial villas and the cisterns scattered everywhere – Cisterna Romana is among the most interesting to visit.
The coasts of Ponza host incredible beauties, from the Scoglio della Tartaruga you can reach three natural pools, absolutely not to miss. Chiaia di Luna, reachable only by sea, is the most famous beach, along with the lively beach of Frontone and Bagno Vecchio.

Of a volcanic nature, Palmarola has seen nature prevailing overthe years: few passable paths, surrounded byluxuriant nature including the dwarf palms, which give the island its name, facing the the calm, emerald green waters.
