Pantelleria, the largest of Sicily’s islands, rises in the middle of the Strait of Sicily.
By touring the island clockwise, visitors can see, in this order, the lake, known as the Specchio di Venere (mirror of Venus) and the towns of Tràcino and Khamma.
Heading from Tràcino towards the sea, the arch with the elephant's trunk can also be seen.
Bearing left, visitors arrive in Cala Levante and Cala Tramontana where the island's most beautiful beaches are situated and where many famous people own villas. Come evening time, what better place to rest than a “dammuso”, one of the island's traditional stone houses with domed roofs.
