Visit Pantelleria Island in Sicily, Italy


ENG:GLI ITINERARI DI PANTELLERIA


THE BLACK PEARL OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA

Island of volcanic origin lying between Sicily and Africa, Pantelleria is characterized by a uncontaminated nature, limpid sea and by terraced plots studded with white dammusi.


 

 

Lake of Venus

Four miles east of the town of Pantelleria, fed by rainwater and hot springs, it is a mile in circumference and its maximum depth is 39 feet. Its turquoise-blue water has temperatures ranging from 65°F to 133°F and its banks consist of mud renowned for its therapeutic and cosmetic properties.


Tour of the island
by boat

In the port of Scauri you can hire a boat for a short excursion around the island, from south to east, passing by some extraordinary examples of “heroic viticulture”: Martingana and Dietro Isola. Have a swim at Balata dei Turchi or Punta Li Marsi, depending on the wind, the Elephant Arch or Cala Levante.
TIPS: And bring along bread, caper pâté and naturally a chilled bottle of Lighea Zibibbo Sicilia IGP.


Trekking and
natural sauna

Going north towards Bukkuram and then Sibà you will find a sign reading Bagno Asciutto Grotta di Benikulà. An easy 10-minute climb will bring you to the hot (90°F) geyser in a grotto. When you come out, dry off in the wind. The Montagna Grande (2742 ft) is an ancient crater surrounded by 24 cuddie, minor craters that once were croplands. This is a nature park with 600 plant species and some rare fauna.
