An unspoilt paradise in the hands of nature
It is the most exotic and wildest of the Pontine Islands, the third largest after Ponza and Ventotene, and is considered one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean. A postcard-perfect paradise called the Island of Palmarola, with the charm of unspoilt nature in an area untouched by the presence of humans. Almost completely uninhabited, apart from a few houses at the landing point of Cala del Porto, since 1998 it has been a protected natural reserve made unique by stacks, caves, small beaches, cave-houses carved out by the wind and unspoilt bays of breathtaking beauty.
Palmarola is only accessible from the Cala del Porto landing point, where you will find the only small restaurant where you can refresh yourself. Among the attractions not to be missed is the Cathedral, a rocky formation reminiscent of a Gothic cathedral, near Punta della Brecce, and Cala Tramontana. Here, you will find a series of caves carved into the rocks that provide a spectacular backdrop.
Also not to be missed are Scoglio Scuncillo islet, which resembles a seashell, and the I Piatti and Le Galere rocks made of obsidian. In Punta di Mezzogiorno, you can admire the imposing stacks and, in the Grotta del Gatto, you will find a spring of fresh water pouring into the sea.
