Crystal clear water in a small cove, surrounded by gorgeous rocky areas. On the point overlooking the cove is a bronze age settlement where the stone walls are still visible. It's an easy hike of about 15 minutes or so from Cala Zimmari, at the...More

Beautiful hike, and not too difficult. I would recommend going around sunset, as this vantage point is one of the most beautiful on the island during this time of the day.

Lovely bay, super clear water, nicely secluded. Be careful anchoring, we got fined for being just inside. And good reasons, there seems to be a specific seaweed which need protection. But super spot.

Great small bay on Panarea island, small stone beach, not easy to get into the water and back. Incredible transparent sea, nice cliffs

Cala Junco is my favorite place on Panarea, and anybody who is reasonable fit should visit it. The walk probably takes about an hour from the Panarea port (it could be faster, but we kept stopping all the time to take photos). The first 45...More
