What to see near the port of Panarea
Given its small size, it is possible to enjoy the beauty of the island (which since 1997 has been part of a protected natural area together with other nearby islets) without necessarily using a means of locomotion.
On the island - chosen as a film location by Rossellini and Antonioni - there are several beaches, which keep their wild nature almost intact (Cala degli Zimmari, Spiaggia della Calcara, Cala Bianca and Cala Junco).
Near Cala Junco it is possible to admire what remains of the prehistoric village of Punta Milazzese, discovered in the late 1950s by the archaeologist Luigi Bernabò Brea and dating back to the Middle Bronze Age.
Other places of interest are two churches: that of the Assunta and that of San Pietro, patron of the island. Finally, Scoglio la Nave deserves special mention: of volcanic origin, it is located in the place where, around 200 thousand years ago, the main crater of the island erupted.
