Panarea, picture-perfect - astonishingly beautiful

 

black-sand beaches, smouldering craters and splintered, rocky coastlines. With the  sunrise  the island calms down,  swim or dive in the clear sea, walk to Cala Junco; there are no cars on the island, only golf carts and 'Motorini' or take a boat trip to the quiet coves on the uninhabited south and west of the island. The action starts at dusk, with drinks at the Bar del Porto or the Bridge Club or head to the Raya for another night of alfresco dancing.
