Poseidon Garden Thermal Baths. The swimming pools are located in the Bay of Citara. Here, nature is full of rare plants: Palm trees and bougainville are in perfect armony. The botanical landscape is a peaceful and accessible oasis for everyone

You can get a hydrofoil to Forio from Beverello, then get the bus or a taxi to the gardens which are just on the other side of town - possibly less stressful than from ischia port. Taxis are generally €15 minimum.
