The island is primarily a nature reserve, but there are a handful of ports where boats can land and several restaurants that cater to tourists during the summer season. 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.

  • I often go to Palmarola cuz I enchant its crystal clear waters! You can see the seabed with the naked eye, there are many fish and the waters are really spotless!

  • A few miles from Ponza, there is this Pearl of waters beautiful and rich in fish and invertebrates. Ideal place for diving and underwater photography. Cala Brigantina is a great place to spend the night if you're in the boat.

  • It is an island of many facets, the Cathedral with vertical rocks that give the image of a cathedral. You move a few dozen metres and you will find the white rocks and crystal clear water. Still rides around the island and you find yourself in a Cove flanked by interconnecting caves and a depth where it is easy to see groupers and other fish. One afternoon I was lucky enough to see up close a sperm whale. Silence is another feature of the island is uninhabited but rich in Mediterranean flora and fauna and of migration.
