Pantelleria - Dietro l'isolaA Pantelleria non ci sono spiagge di sabbia, solo alcune spiagge di ciottoli accessibili unicamente in barca dal mare. Esistono invece bellissime scogliere lisce estese su tutto il perimetro dell’isola.

Molto importante per decidere dove andare a fare il bagno è controllare la direzione del vento (per questo vi aiuterà una manica a vento opportunamente installata sul tetto del Fico d’India) per potersi orientare verso una zona dell’isola sottovento (vale a dire opposta a quella del vento).

I venti dominanti sono il maestrale (nord/ovest) e lo scirocco (sud/est): nel primo caso andate verso sud, nel secondo verso nord…
Per camminare sulle rocce possono essere utili le apposite scarpette reperibili anche localmente nei negozi sportivi dell’isola.

In Pantelleria there are not sandy beaches, only a few pebble beaches only accessible by boat from the sea. However, there are beautiful and smooth rocks extended around the entire perimeter of the island.

To decide where to go for a swim is very important to check the wind direction (for this will help you a windsock properly installed on the roof of the Dammuso Fico d’India) to orient yourself toward an area of the island that is protected, without the waves of the sea.

The prevailing winds are the mistral (north/west) and the sirocco (south/east): in the first case go to the south, in the second to the north …
To walk on the rocks can be useful the appropriate shoes that can also be found locally in sports shops on the island.
