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)

We visited lo specchio di venere several years ago, and it was one of the great highlights of our week in Pantelleria. The island as a whole is fascinating and spectacular--craggy volcanic rock everywhere, used for everything from building houses to building sheltered groves for...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

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...More

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...More
