Italy Mediterranean

Are you looking for an Italian adventure? Our base in Naples is perfectly located for you and your crew to discover more of the Amalfi Coast, and, together with Sardinia and Sicily, we’ve got the southern Italian waters covered!

Naples is a historical treat with some of the world’s most famous landmarks, such as the volcanic crater at the still active Mount Vesuvius and the ruins at Pompeii. The bay of Naples also boasts two of the most beautiful archipelagos in Europe, as well as the famous Amalfi coast, which is perfect for a yacht charter. We’ve given some advice on where to go and what to see in the Tyrrhenian Sea

The Phlegraean Islands

Sail around this archipelago, close to the bay of Naples, and see why its marinas are some of the most photographed in Italy:

  • Ischia – Known for its thermal, healing waters and spas, this is the largest island in the bay of Naples with 34km of coast. If you love history, head to Ischia Ponte and the historic quarter for the medieval Aragonese Castle and pretty cobbled streets. Hike to Mount Epomeo, relax at Negombo Thermal Park at Baia di San Montano or bathe at Citara beach at Forio.
  • Procida – This might be the smallest island in the bay of Naples but it packs a colourful punch with its brightly painted buildings rising up from Marina Corricella. For sandy beaches, visit Chiaiolella and Chiaia beaches and don’t forget to try the seafood.
  • Vivara – This uninhabited volcanic crater is now a protected nature reserve and home to rare birds and plants. Visits are restricted to twice daily and all tours need to be with an expert guide. Book your tickets to visit Vivara Island on the Visit Procida website.
  • Nisida – Connected to the mainland by a bridge just north of Naples at Posillipo, this volcanic islet is where it’s believed that the Brutus hatched the plot to assassinate Julius Caesar. Today you can see the remains of an impressive flooded volcanic crater which forms the horseshoe-shaped Porto Paone cove. You can hike in the non-restricted areas to get a great view of Naples and Mount Vesuvius in the distance – perfect for keen photographers.

Pontine Islands

You’ll find something for everyone, from remote tranquillity to wildlife and fantastic atmospheres:

  • Ponza – The largest of the islands in this archipelago is popular with Italians wanting to get away from the cities. It is unpretentious, laid back and is famed for its simple way of life with good food. Expect to see pastel houses winding up the hillside and rugged coasts. Cala Inferno and Ansa dello Schiavone offer protection from south westerly to north easterly winds
  • Ventotene – There is one beach on this rocky island but you’ll find peace and quiet, as well as nice good restaurants. Visit the old Roman villa of Giulia at Punta Eolo or watch the dolphins from Moggio di Terra. If an easterly is blowing, head to Cala Parata Grande.
  • Santa Stefano – A short hop from Ventotene, this small island is a protected nature and marine reserve, dominated by a large prison that was open until 1965. You can take a guided tour of the prison.
  • Gavi – A very small uninhabited island without beaches but you can explore the grotto.
  • Palmarola – Take care sailing around this small island and anchor at Punta Tramontana for impressive views or dine at Cala del Porto.
  • Zannone – Its former hedonistic residents, the Marquis Casati Stampa and his wife, were renowned for holding rather seedy parties on the island until the 1970s. Today, it’s home to wildlife and you can visit the empty villa and beach, which were once the scandal of the bay of Naples.

Amalfi coast and surrounding area

  • Capri – Sail by the island’s Faraglioni rocks, which jut out the sea like shark teeth, and swim at La Fontelina. Visit the Blue Grotto outside of peak times to enjoy the sunlight dancing in the caves. Enjoy the historic centre with its 12th century architecture and megalithic walls or soak up the lively vibes at Marina Piccola.
  • Positano – Anchor on the coast and photograph the yellow toned houses reaching high up the mountain from Le Serinuse or Hotel Marincanto. Go ashore to wander the boutiques and sample the Amalfi coast’s famous specialities, such as Scialatielli pasta and Limoncello.
  • Sorrento – Head to Piazza Tasso at night for a real Italian atmosphere and to find somewhere to dine. Try the seafood at Marina Grande which is beautiful setting on the beach with plenty of fresh fish restaurants. If you want to lounge on the beach, it will be crowded but get to Marina Piccola early.
