Chiaia di Luna
Latest update: 26 February 2022
The bay of Chiaia di Luna is the most instantly recognisable sight on the island of Ponza. The dramatic, sheer cliff face that leads down into crystal clear water is a magnet for all visitors to Ponza and particularly those with a private boat.
The beach itself is closed for safety reasons but if you don't have a boat, you can at least photograph it from a little viewing area above, next to the main road.
To reach the viewing area on foot takes around 15 minutes, a journey of just under a kilometre and mostly up hill. If you don't fancy the walk then I recommend hiring a scooter for the day and making this your first stop outside of the port. Then once you've finished here you can head north towards Le Forna where you'll find the majority of beaches and little coves.
