Usage and potential
Pantelleria ia a paradise to be explored, quickly reachable and at the same time far away from everything: an ideal place for those who love living in a peaceful location, contemplating the sea listening to the noise of the waves against the rocks. Pantelleria is a liveable island, in a few minutes drive it is possible to reach wonderful bays, such as Balata dei Turchi or “Laghetto delle ondine”, a natural swimming-pool of turquoise water a few metres above the sea level. The coast offers walking and trekking paths through a breathtaking panorama of natural gardens.
The dry stone walls shelter lines of vineyards producing the unique wine Passito di Pantelleria with its sweet and fruity taste.
Halfway between the coast and the “Montagna Grande”, there is the lake “Specchio di Venere”, a basin within an ancient volcanic caldera with hot springs (40° C) and natural mud baths used for healing treatments.
