- Ischia is the most developed of the islands in the Gulf of Naples
and a major tourist destination. Largely volcanic, it has long been
noted for its thermal springs, which pull in the punters as much as
the beaches. The main centres are the touristy towns of Ischia and
Ischia Porto, Casamicciola Terme, Forio and Lacco Ameno, Ischia Ponte,
Serrara, Fontana, Barano d’Ischia and San’t Angelo. Among
the better beaches is Lido dei Maronti, south of Barano.
