Palmaria Island

The Palmaria Island closes the horizon of Portovenere. It is separated from the old medieval village by a narrow arm of the sea, called “Le Bocche” (the mouthes). The stories of Palmaria Island are connected to those of Porto Venere, in good and bad fate. A memorable event is that of the double assault, by sea and by land, which it underwent for twenty days in the summer of 1242 by both Imperial troops and troops from Pisa. The island is connected to Portovenere by steamers and private boats which disembark tourists at the Terrizzo, from where one can start the tour: to the right, the wide dirt road “via Schenello”, where you can find the only hotel-restaurant (trattoria) which is open from June to October. On the coast, you can see the mussels breedings in the typical wooden cages. The real footpath starts to the right of old vats, indicated by a red sign. Following the winding footpath, one gets to the old asphalt road of the island from which one can watch the Island of Tino (hardly bigger than a rock). Following another footpath, it is then possible to get to a wide inlet with a beach which is the second mooring of the island.
