Ischia is the largest island in the bay of Naples and is considered by many to be the most beautiful, (though Capri is considerably more famous). The island is 10 km from east to west and 7 km north to south. It has a coastline of 34 km and covers an area of 46.3 sq. km. It has a permanent population of approximately 58,000. Up to 6 million tourists (principally from the Italian mainland and Germany) flock to the island for its volcanic thermal spas and as well for its beaches and food.
Ischia is Capri’s bigger sister, and a complete contrast. While Capri is a limestone rock, Ischia is a volcanic island, that left it rich in thermal aquifers. That makes Ischia one of Italy’s best-known spa resorts, where people from around the world come to soak in the curative mineral-rich waters, enjoy mud treatments, facials, massages and other health-boosting therapies.
Several towns are located along the island’s coast. The largest city in Ischia is actually (and often confusingly, for tourists) called Ischia. The town of Ischia, however, has two different centers: Ischia Porto and Ischia Ponte. Ischia Porto is the commercial center of the island and is named after the main port. Ischia Ponte (“Ponte” meaning “bridge” in Italian) is named for the area surrounding and including the footbridge that was constructed to connect the Castello Aragonese with the island. Beside the town of Ischia, some of the other centres are Lacco Ameno, Casamicciola, Forio, Barano, Sant’Angelo, and the jointed town of Serrara-Fontana.
For spa seekers, head over towards Forio and the thermal parks where you can spend the day trying out the different pools and hot tubs in a garden setting. The villa lies about 20 minutes by car from the port of Ischia, and from there Naples can be reached in about an hour by ferry with your car on board and in about 40 minutes by hydrofoil.
