Driving around the island at different times of day, the light was very different, offering spectacular sights and varying colors of the crystal clear waters.

Ponza

the sights, amusing or stunningly gorgeous, never ceased to amaze.  Each evening we ended our blissful days with a late dinner at Punta Incenso Restaurant, a family run, informal place that served dinner only.  Several of the family members spent their morning fishing, serving their catch of the day at dinner.  What a treat to enjoy only the best local, seasonal FRESH fish.

Five glorious days on the beautiful island of Ponza with a total change of pace, scenery, food and activities made for the perfect late August-early September mini-vacation. We couldn’t help but wonder why we had never gone before!
