Capri & the Amalfi Coast Yacht Charter
This charter itinerary was based on seven days long Italian yacht charter.
The Bay of Naples has been a firm favourite with aristocrats for many many years. This beautiful bay is an excellent location to start your charter yacht experience when visiting Capri, Positano and the stunning Amalfi coast.
When sailing west to the more remote islands of Palmarola and Ponza in the Med you will eventually come to Corsica and Sardinia. Each island has lots of small fishing villages, protected anchorages inaccessible by land along with waters. It’s where you can enjoy different water sports. Next visit the Maddalena Archipelago on the north-east coast of Sardinia or stop in Cala di Volpe. This port is just before you disembark at Porto Cervo.
Day 1 – Capri and Naples
Starting in Italy’s third largest city, Naples which is at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, the captain will set sail for the Marina Grande on the spectacular Isle of Capri. Leaving the Sannazzaro Marina, just 6m from Naples International Airport it won’t be long until you arrive at your destination. Whether dining on shore or on board your superyacht, the marina isn’t far from the quaint, winding streets. Here there are amazing boutiques as well as very high-class shops. Jet setters enjoy the Piazzetta which is a hive of activity and Capri’s most famous square.
Day 2 – Positano
Sailing on board a yacht enables you to visit parts of Capri that are inaccessible by any other means. See the Natural Arch, the Faraglioni rocks, the Bay of Marina Piccola and the Grotta Bianca. It only takes about an hour to get back to the mainland and the spectacular village of Positano which is known as “The Gem of the Divine Coast”. It rises up from the sea and follows the steep incline of the nearby mountains. The coastline is splendid and cruising by superyacht gives guests the opportunity to see panoramic views of Positano. Relax on the sun deck during the afternoon, sunbathe or have some fun on one of the yacht’s many water toys. Dining al fresco enjoying delicious meals is one of a yacht charter vacation’s many highlights. You could make your way ashore and eat in one of the gourmet restaurants in Positano. Try some of the local dishes and experience a different way of life. When you retire to your cabin, the captain will set course towards Italy’s Pontine Archipelago and some of its more remote islands. What could be better than waking up at anchor between Ponza and Palmarola?
Day 3 – Ponza and Palmarola
One of the most beautiful islands in the Med is Palmarolais. Take a relaxing cruise in the island’s crystal clear blue waters to catch glimpses of the rugged coastline with its bays, cliffs and quaint grottoes. The shallow waters in the south of Palmarola are ideal for swimming while the beaches are the perfect spots to have a picnic. The area is also great for exploring caves and snorkelling.If there’s sufficient time left, don’t miss out on exploring Ponza. This is the largest island of the Archipelago and definitely worth visiting. Dramatic cliffs and coves circle the main town which has stunning, brightly coloured houses. It’s a less spoilt version of Capri with the main settlement of Ponza Porto located around the harbour. Ponza hasn’t many monuments or tourist attractions, however there are some splendid restaurants and a few bars if you fancy a late-night drink. Your yacht will then sail to Bonifacio in Corsica overnight so you’ll wake up in yet another fantastic location.
Day 4 – Bonifacio
Next morning you will be in Bonifacio which is at the southernmost tip of Corsica, a French Island known as “the City of the Cliffs”. Explore the ancient medieval lanes, take a tour of the walled fortress or enjoy a leisurely walk along the bluff, high above the lovely harbour. There’s a marine cemetery and windmills that date back to the 12th century on the tip of the promontory. The best view of all is across the straits to Sardinia which is actually your next destination.
Day 5 – La Maddalena Group of Islands
In the morning, your yacht will leave for the Maddalena Archipelago which is on the north-east coast of Sardinia. It’s a quiet, largely uninhabited national park that includes many islands such as Caprera, Santo Stefano, Budelli, Maddalena, Santa Maria and Razzoli. For access to the Maddalena Archipelago, secluded bays, magical coves and fantastic beaches, a charter yacht is ideal.
Day 6 – Cala di Volpe
A short cruise takes you past many inlets and islets on the spectacular Costa Smeralda en route to Cala di Volpe. Spend time on the exotic beaches during the day and in the evening, take a stroll along the bay. This is a great location for snorkelling, water skiing and jet skiing. Cala di Volpe is very popular during the months of July and August so enjoy every moment when your yacht is anchored close by.
Day 7 – Porto Cervo
The last day will be spent cruising along the Costa Smeralda coast of Sardinia onward to Porto Cervo. This was once a Sardinian fishing village that has now developed into a popular and exclusive holiday destination. Rock stars and royalty flock to Porto Cervo for its undeniable beauty, warm temperatures and impressive nightlife. Each June there’s the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta which attracts many superyachts and visitors from around the world.
