Set on one of the most beautiful coastlines on the Mediterranean, between the Gulf of Gaeta and Circeo Point, Ponza has a particularly healthy climate thanks to the iodine-rich breeze rising from the crystal clear sea and blending with the sunís rays. The shores are mainly rocky and made up of tufa cliffs, with caves, creeks and steep, offshore crags.
This rocky landscape also has bays and little beaches, the most famous and most extensive being Chiaia di Luna. Ponza is the biggest island in the Ponza archipelago and is vulcanic in origin. The town of Ponza is laid out like an amphitheatre around the port and is the islandís main tourist and seaside resort.
