Top 6 Hidden Gems on a Tuscan Yacht Charter
During your Tuscany yacht charter holiday, enjoy the wild havens and hidden gems of the Tuscan Archipelago. Here are 6 essential 'must see' attractions ot consider on your Italian private yacht charter holiday.
To get you in the mood for a vacation of a lifetime, let’s begin with:
1. Elba’s towns
Spend the night on your luxury yacht at anchor close to the beautiful Porto Azzurro. Get up bright and early so you can head over to Capoliveri for some retail therapy. Capoliveri has a good number of charming shops specialising in quality goods for acquired tastes. After a little shopping, dine at La Taverna dei Poeti, a quaint local restaurant. Try the tuna burger starter and the Gragnano paccheri pasta with grouper, it’s delicious.
2. Pianosa Island
This tiny island, located southwest of Elba, was once a penal colony. It was also the place of Napoleon’s exile in 1814-1815. Elba’s inaccessibility has saved it from mass tourism. The diving here, with authorised guides, is quite unique. You’ll be able to see things like redfish, grouper and molluscs that you won’t find in other places. What’s more the water is absolutely sensational.
3. Sansone Beach, Elba
If you want to spend a fantastic night at anchor on your charter boat then take a refreshing dip at sunrise, the beautiful cove at Fetovaia, Elba, is the place to be. For a much more secretive and secluded, yet equally spectacular spot on Elba, you can’t beat Sansone Beach. It’s an inviting, enchanting white pebble cove with steep white cliffs. Sansone Beach is simply one of the best beaches in the Mediterranean.
4. Giglio Island
No yacht charter vacation to the Tuscan Archipelago would be complete without visiting Giglio Island. Here you can enjoy drinking the best cocktails in Il Demino at Demo’s Hotel on the beach right next to Giglio Port. Being right on the water’s edge, why not pass a night on the terrace waiting for sunrise drinking a margarita or two?
5. Caldane Beach, Giglio
Caldane Beach is one of the most stunning and private beaches on Giglio. You can only arrive onto the beach by boat or on foot. It can also be quite a wild beach so a little choppy from time to time. Take a swim in the blue crystal-clear waters before relaxing on the beach and topping up your tan.
6. Capraia Island
For something a little different on your yacht charter holiday, how about a trekking or bike tour on Capraia Island? Have you got what it takes to complete the Percorso dello Stagnone, The Stagnone Path? The trail begins by the church in the village of Capraia, climbing up the mountain before descending towards the harbour. In the spring time, you can see rare orchids, wild flowers and herbs. After completing the Percorso dello Stagnone, it’s reassuring to know that you can then return to your superyacht charter vessel for a relaxing, soothing massage.
