The villages of the Amalfi Coast grew up with the fishing trade, which brought a traditional way of life to the small harbours that are carved into the rocky hillsides. Now a popular destination for yacht charter vacations, luxury hotels and boutiques have appeared but the locals have held onto their customs. The result is an area where historic walks can end in gourmet cuisine, and architectural treasures can be viewed before indulging in some designer shopping. The combination of old and new carried off tastefully is rare, and not to be missed. A Capri yacht charter is the ideal way to experience the region. If the chic lifestyle of this special island is not enough to seduce you, jump on your yacht to cruise through the turquoise Tyrrhenian sea, explore grottoes and snorkel in shimmering waters before retiring to the deck to enjoy a gelato at sunset – you are sure to be swept away.
Key Cruising Areas: The craggy coastline of Capri begs to be explored. Sail around the island to visit the sea grottoes tucked into the coast, snorkel in sparkling turquoise waters, or visit the Faraglioni sea stacks. For a longer cruise, sail out to Li Galli islands for a swim, and wander round the nearby town of Positano.
Don’t Miss: The Blue Grotto is a well-known tourist spot that for once will not disappoint. Visit it in the late afternoon to avoid the crowds and make the most of the evening light, which turns the water an impossible blue.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Capri offers a number of excellent restaurants to suit every palate, from the cliff top seafood restaurant Il Riccio or to Da Paolino, a relaxed ristorante set in a picturesque lemon grove. For a special evening visit La Capannina for local specials and ask your waiter to recommend a wine match from the 200 on the list.
Local Culture: The beauty of the Amalfi Coast has inspired countless artists, producing an island dotted with art galleries. Visit Liquid Art System to view a collection of local and international arts and sculpture.
Best Beach: The Faraglioni stacks are symbolic of Capri – spend the day floating in the crystal-clear waters beneath towering rock formations, then return to your yacht to drink sangria into the warm evening.
IYC recommends: Take a walking tour of Capri village and reach the Augustus Gardens, comprehensive of a series of panoramic flower-decked terraces overlooking the Faraglioni and the "Via Krupp", a historic switchback paved footpath which covers an elevation difference of about 100m. Alternatively head to the second town on the island, Anacapri. A short drive – or steep walk for the energetic – from here take the chairlift for breathtaking views. Return to the Capri Palace Hotel to soak in the lidos and dine in their Michelin-starred restaurant.
