A few small beaches exist.Pope Silverius was exiled to and died on Palmarola in 537.Points of interest San Silverio Shrine, a site where miracles have been confirmed, access to the site is somewhat difficult.

  • We stayed here in 2016 and it was a great experience. We visited with the boat along with other people, from Ponza. Beautiful coves and wonderful places where you can swim, clear water. And, an experience to be repeated

  • Palmarola, one of the Pontine Islands, is located a few kilometers from cala Feola Ponza island from which you have a beautiful view of the island. Named after the dwarf Palm, the only Palm native to Europe, which grows wild on its surface. The island, devoid of trees, still looks pristine, rugged coastline and a wonderful sea colors and transparency, a paradise for divers. Elongated and narrow, is inhabited only seasonally. The boat tour around the island offers wonderful views of cliffs, caves, inlets. Particularly admired the stacks of Noon, elephant rock and Cathedral, consisting of caves that form arches that seem constructed by man. Only landing is Cala del Porto or Beach of Circe, where a seasonal restaurant (with some room) where it is pleasant to drink or eat something on the terrace (providential bathrooms!). In addition to this simple structure there is access to the villa of Fendi sisters, well hidden among the greenery, whose caretaker is the only inhabitant all year. The island is certainly wonderful, some claim it to be the most beautiful island in the world, this statement to me seems quite exaggerated, probably made by people who have seen little of the world.

  • Taking advantage of a calm sea, we took a day trip to Palmarola with my inflatable dress in Sabaudia therefore 40 minutes cruising speed and here in this paradise waters only in Sardinia you can find equal bays and coves a prettier than the other great bathrooms and in the evening return to Sabaudia. gorgeous day in an amazing island.
