Pantelleria is unique, I didn't understand whether I like it or not, but I cryed when we left. Lo specchio di venere has some hot pots to sit in and contemplate on how it will be, when you are old. Then you cover yourself in mud, let it dry and go for a swim.

The beautiful changing colours are mesmerising. We were at the lake first thing a.m. they say to first bath in hot spring waters, then cover in nearby mud baths....take a stroll around lake until mud dries...then wash off for a real cocoon experience. Stunning setting...a must visit....even the bar is very cool with hammocks and relaxing setting;-)

Location fantastic, charming and unique. An immense blue lake hot spring water. It is a nature reserve !! Remember not to be uncivilized, pick up cigarettes and trash.

Scenic walk around the lake and a natural volcanic spa with wonderful mud suitable for applying on your body and when dried- scrubbing it off and enjoying a swim. For best experience - go early! At 9 am there were 6 persons, at 11 am about 70 and more arriving.

Looking down from the hillside it is difficult to imagine you are in Italy. A real jewel a saline lake with mud baths better than the Dead Sea but not so well known You have to go!

A pristine crater lake, surrounded by lush greenery. Passed through on my way trekking from the port to Khamma. A quite place with excellent bird spotting potential.
