DESCRIPTION OF MARONTI BEACH
It is one of the most photographed bays of Ischia. Both from the east and west side offers magnificent views thanks to the unique morphology.
With its huge turquoise bay and the green mountain behind it is the ideal place to practice water sports (windsurfing, wakeboarding, canoeing, SUP, surfing, etc..) or enjoy long swims considering that the sea becomes immediately deep after a few meters from the beach.
This beach is never really crowded, even in the most touristy periods.
MARONTI BEACH ATTRACTIONS
The Fumaroles is one of the most famous volcanic phenomena of the island.
The fumaroles are located at the beginning of Maronti beach, on the Sant'Angelo side, and are the result of an incredible geothermal activity of the subsoil coming from the stratum below the village. Here the thermal water reaches the highest temperature of the island, touching even the 100 ° C temperature. The phenomenon is visible thanks to the abundant steam that comes out of the sand where it is even possible to cook food in foil under the sand (chicken, potatoes, lasagna, etc..) The high-temperature zone is delimited to avoid unpleasant accidents.
It is advisable to wear sea clothing and to pay attention to the signs and not to cross the fences.
