Loved swimming here when the sea was too rough. Took my flippers and crossed the whole lake and back easily. No danger(boats, jellyfish, rocks), like a huge swimming pool. Water is salty, warm and calm. A great (natural) option and better han any swimming pool!

The lake is without in- or outlets, except for the natural spring that feeds it, but there is some salinity due to evaporation. Ideal for jogging around the perimeter and bird watching (flamingos and egrets)

I have visited this fabulous lake/lagoon recently with friends, probably the only place in Pantelleria where you can have a walk "by the sea". The "specchio di Venere" is in the middle of the mountains of Pantelleria, crystal clear blue water (and no jelly fish!)...More

Really stunning place, you must stop by at least to drive by. Drive behind the lake and up the hill for even better views

I can't describe the wonder! We went with the hotel shuttle, we did the sludge and we bathed. Lago di Venere was is one of the best thing in Pantelleria!
