Guide to Ponza

Where a slower pace of life lets you enjoy the best of the Mediterranean

When you arrive on Ponza, the saying ‘la dolce vita’ will instantly become clear. Popular with Italians and celebrities trying to keep a low profile, this small island enjoys a slower pace of life that is best enjoyed when the only thing to do is surrender to relaxation.

Ponza is the largest of the three Pontine Islands, just off the coast of the Lazio Region set between Rome and Naples. Its wild, green landscape greets you as you approach the charismatic port on your Mediterranean yacht charter. With its rustic, unspoilt feel, this island and the surrounding coastline is best explored by sea, made even better when you have the luxury of a superyacht to enjoy along the way.

If you’re looking to enjoy all the frills that come with a modern Mediterranean island, you won’t find it in Ponza. But what you will find is a place steeped in history and old world charm. A cruise around the island will give you the best views and access to all the secret coves you can’t get to by land, and can be combined with a visit across to nearby Palmarola. This tiny island is also home to a fantastic restaurant which can be found in one of only two buildings found there. After lunch you can head back to Ponza to enjoy a chilled aperitivo or a glass of Enoteca - the locally produced wine - in the shade of the hot afternoon sun.

Ponza itself has a couple of good beaches to catch some sun on, including the Spiaggia Di Chiaia di Luna, or ‘Half Moon Beach’ which lies close to the Roman Galleria and Sorceress’s Grotta. The second is Spiaggia Delle Felci which is beautiful but hasn’t gone unnoticed by visitors and can get busy during the summer months. If you want to spend the evening ashore, there are a few bars and restaurants serving Italian plates, or you could just enjoy the talents of the onboard private chef whilst watching the lights glisten into the hills on shore.

This elegant Italian island set against the turquoise Tyrrhenian sea is the perfect destination to explore on a private yacht charter vacation in Italy. Whether you want to holiday with friends or family, you can find your dream luxury yacht with our comprehensive selection of crewed yachts for charter on the Amalfi Coast.
