A trip to the Pontine islands to discover the beauty of Ponza, Ventotene and Palmarola
You can get on a hydrofoil and reach the Pontine islands in less than 1 hour from Formia or Terracina. This archipelago is known especially for its clear emerald waters and pristine sea bottom – the ideal spot for scuba diving.
The well-preserved beaches and the picturesque sea caves attract thousands of tourists each year and are the perfect destinations for those looking for a relax-and-nature-based holiday. Throughout the year these islands are underpopulated, while during summer they become very popular and lively. The most beautiful beach is probably Chiaia di Luna, mentioned as one of the best of Italy, where fine sand and high cliffs meet.
It is possible to get to the Pontine islands via hydrofoil or ferry (during summer) from several ports, such as Formia, Anzio, Terracina, San Felice Circeo, Naples, Pozzuoli and Ischia. From Collina degli Ulivi, you can get to Formia in 15 minutes by car and get on a hydrofoil for reaching one of the three beautiful islands.
Collina degli Ulivi is one of the best Bed and Breakfasts in Lazio, Italy
