The 6 Most Spectacular Superyacht Charter Destinations on the Amalfi Coast
Read the full Essential Amalfi Yacht Charter Guide
The verdant and diverse Amalfi Coast is a siren's call to luxury yacht charter groups who find Italy's central location easy to include in any Eastern Mediterranean or Western Mediterranean charter itinerary.
If your group is only visiting for the day before moving on to explore other incredible locations, make the most of your time with this list of the six best superyacht charter spots along the Amalfi Coast.
1. Naples & Pompeii
The historic city is often paired with the nearby ruins of Pompeii for a cultural tour taking in both the ancient history and current thriving theatrical events. Naples is an easy port to begin and end a yacht charter with the airport connecting to international flights. With Ischia to the west and Capri to the south, a secluded beach escape is a quick cruise away.
No trip to the Amalfi Coast would be complete without visiting the Island of Capri, where the coastline has numerous glowing limestone grottoes that reflect the water off the bottom. The Gardens of Augustus are a splendid sight and a great place to take in the famous Via Krupp hairpin bends before finding a quiet cove for playing on the water toys.
This quiet seaside town was once a powerful maritime port that now attracts luxury yacht charter groups to its vibrant shores. Visit the 9th Century Amalfi Cathedral and stroll through the streets to work up your appetite for one of the world-class restaurants. The caves along the shore are perfect for exploring using kayaks and paddleboards before resting on your sundeck sun loungers.
From Amalfi guests can take a half-day trip into the hills for Ravello, the breath-taking UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take in the Tyrrhenian Sea from the villas at sunset and see for yourself why it is one of the most romantic destinations in the Mediterranean. The Ravello Music Festival takes place in the summer to add another incredible evening to your holiday.
If you're looking for a beach holiday with shallow water for young family members and an excellent place to practise with the water toys, look no further: Sandy shores stretch from Salerno past a nature reserve all the way down to the ruins of Paestum to give your group a choice of snorkelling grounds and places to learn how to jet ski.
Brightly coloured houses and ancient forts will fill your view as you cruise into port at Positano. Spend your day exploring the narrow streets filled with boutiques, historic churches, lavish restaurants and quality Italian cafes before cruising along to the coves for an afternoon of sunbathing.
