Stretching from the Gulf of Naples to the Gulf of Salerno, the Amalfi Coast encompasses everything that is dreamed of in a Mediterranean coastal landscape. Truly the perfect Italian destination, dramatic cliffs tumble into deep blue seas, picturesque towns crowd into the hillsides amid jutting churches and verdant forests, and the restaurant scene is amongst the best in Europe. Deemed by UNESCO to be “an outstanding example of Mediterranean landscape”, the Amalfi Coast has become an extremely popular destination for visiting superyachts. True to the Italian attitude, the locals have held fast to their traditional lifestyles and pastel-hued terraced houses which merge into the landscape, and the opulence of this glittering region has simply grown around them. The Amalfi coast is the perfect combination of sophistication and simplicity.
Best visited by boat, this impressive chunk of limestone soaring from the Tyrrhenian Sea is a highlight of the Amalfi Coast. With stunning scenery, modern shopping, world-class dining, and an air of chic glamour, Capri offers plenty to see and do. Capri is the ideal place to explore by boat. A gentle cruise around the island showcases secret coves and sea caves, small beaches you can’t get to by land, villas hidden in the cliffs, and towering rock formations. A must is to visit the Blue Grotto. This is one of those sights that live up to its reputation. It is a wide opening into Capri Island and has been known since the Roman times. Allow yourself to swim through the darkness into the great blue grotto.
Arriving at Positano by Superyacht is a breathtaking experience as cliffs surround you providing a sense of seclusion. There are plenty of restaurants to explore on land. Il Carlino restaurant offers al fresco seaside dining. It is the perfect place to sample popular local cuisine made from fresh seasonal ingredients. The dishes are prepared with ingredients harvested fresh from Il San Pietro’s gardens. Another option is to venture to Sirmione, Lake Garda to take in some historical sights. You can find it on the southern shore of Lake Garda. Here you can explore 13th century castles, villas that were once homes to Opera Singers and Latin Poets.
Ponza is another island that is best explored by boat. One could say that Ponza is a best kept secret. The island's charm lies in its timelessness and simplicity, attracting the fashion crowds and celebrities alike. As you arrive by your charter boat, you will be mesmerized by the colors of the islands’ port, the captivating rock incisions, and the ultra green landscape. Once on land you become immersed in the festive holiday-like culture and atmosphere. It’s a place where relaxation and fun happen.
Procida is where you go for true relaxation. A small island under 2 square miles, this island usually flies under the tourist radar, despite being recently named Italy's Capital of Culture for 2022, becoming the first island to ever hold the title. Procida has had some big screen moments as the set of The Talented Mr. Ripley and II Positino. This island is filled with marinas, historical sites, secluded beaches, and pastel houses. It’s the perfect island to stroll the cafe lined marinas, grab lunch or visit the small boutique hotels.
