Here’s a picturesque little dot out at sea that I’m sure you’ll enjoy — Ischia (EE-skee-ah).
The largest island in the Phelgrean Archipelago — just at the northern end of the Bay of Naples in the Mare Tirreno (Tyrrhanean Sea) — Ischia is where about six-million tourists come annually to enjoy la dolce vita (the sweet life), for a week, a month or for a season.
One of the most picturesque BAYS in the world lies on the backside of the island at Sant’Angelo d’Ischia. It’s actually the jewel of the island, tucked away — like a quiet fishing village should — far from the madding crowd.
Enjoy the views.

I’m greedy. I wanted more photos! I was on Ischia briefly a lot of years ago and thought it was truly beautiful.
Jo – I did give you 13 in the short video-slideshow. If you missed it, circle back and click the arrow on the VideoPress. Glad you enjoyed the 1 static shot, or the video bundle.
Ok..I’m ready to move there! So beautiful!
Me, too! 🙂
Thanks for sharing your wonderful bay photography my friend , I love it 🙂
Jake – Thanks goes to you for selecting BAY as your Sunday Post.
Thanks for giving me a taste of what’s to come. March is cold and gloomy here, the sunshine and blue skies are quite inviting.
Napoli will change all of that, and quickly. Buon viaggio!
Beautiful photos and music. Have you been to Procida, Ponza and all those small islands around Naples not in the tourist spotlight?
Procida, si, and Capri, but none of the others…YET! I often go off the beaten path, it’s my preferred direction. About Puglia, I just can’t say enough about it. I love the Salento area even more. Have a great trip!
Go off the beaten path Tom, you will find surprises. I am taking a group to Puglia April 15, 2013 to places they can’t even imagine. I am from those parts, I know Puglia in and out, my group will love it.
I wish I could afford a month in Ischia :). Beautiful choice, Tom!
Paula – Glad you liked this little taste of Ischia. If you can’t afford a month, visit for a weekend or a week.
What a beautiful bay, Tom. You’re right, it is a jewel. 🙂
Beautiful. Maybe someday. Thanks for liking all my Dolomite posts. I am getting excited as it nears.
