■The ferry leaves Ponza for Formia twice daily: 5.30 am and 2.30 am. Again, please arrive at the port at least 30 minutes prior.
Unless you are planning to stay on the island indefinitely, here are the round-trip prices for 2013:
■Per person: 33.70 euros
■1 Car + driver: 105.90 euros (add cost per person for all other travelling companions)
Formia has great connections by train and road and is has a car-carrying service. Although we don’t advise you bring your car onto the island unless absolutely necessary. The island has good public transport systems by way of taxi and bus, plus you can also hire a car/golf-cart or scooter to get around.
Ferry from Formia to Ponza
Our advise is to use the bus or taxi services and for longer trips, hire a scooter or golf cart for the day. There is a scooter hire service less than 5 minutes walk from Sunset Village and the charge is from 25 euros to 35 for the day. A golf cart is about 50 euros for the day but note that you may have difficulty finding a place to park, especially during the busy summer season from July through August.
At around 32km long by 5 km wide, Ponza is the largest of the Pontine Islands archipelago, located around 35km off the west coast of Italy.
Supposedly named after Pontius Pilate, Ponza is a popular tourist spot for Italian holidaymakers in the summer.
Relatively unknown outside of Italy, this island has few foreign visitors and has managed to remain almost exclusively the haunt of Italians who flock here during the summer
Ferry crossings are scheduled to operate up to 2 times daily with durations from 2 hours.

Ponza’s topography is rich and varied — a veritable geology lesson. Rounding the promontory past the grottoes, the Faraglioni della Madonna is a collection of rocky stacks whose brown stone surfaces resemble knotted wood. La Punta di Capo Bianco is a cluster of volcanic stone towers with knobby peaks chiseled from the volcanic mountainside by sea, air and wind. Chiaia di Luna is an enormous bay with a massive curving tuff wall made by a volcanic deposit whose name betrays its moonlike appearance.
A 20- to 30-minute boat trip from Chiaia di Luna, whose name lies Palmarola, Ponza’s closest inhabited neighbor in the Pontine Archipelago. The sparsely populated island has the area’s most bizarre and beautiful geological formation, La Cattedrale, gray volcanic rock whose stone ridges leap upward from the water like the vertical ribs of a Gothic cathedral. There is only one sand beach in Palmarola, with a couple of seaside cafes. If you arrive by boat, you can dock there and wade ashore. There are also group tours, which depart from Ponza Porto.
Another beach, Spiaggia di Frontone, is served by a regular ferry from Porto. The boat deposits its passengers on a strip of sand with a few bars and beach clubs that rent umbrellas and lounge chairs. At the north end of the beach, a path carved into the rocks leads uphill to the Associazione Culturale Cala Frontone, an informal restaurant and small museum.
The most intriguing of these are called Pilate’s Grottoes, a series of cave pools that were carved by hand. (Bring a flashlight and goggles or a mask,.) Once there, simply drop anchor and swim inside.
Rent a boat and visit the sister island Palmarola.
