Your sailing holiday with us begins in Sorrento, precisely in Castellammare di Stabia, easily reachable in just 20 minutes by transfer from both the Naples airport and the railway station.
Castellamare di Stabia is a perfect starting point to sail directly to the luxurious resorts in the surrounding area: Capri and Ischia, the Pontine Islands and the Amalfi Coast, where you will anchor alongside jet set VIPs such as Anastacia, Lewis Hamilton, Demi Moore, Jude Law and many more, just to name a few.
South of the chaotic and glamorous Naples, the outstanding and famous Amalfi Coast - and the three islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, as well as land gems such as Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi itself - have been a magnet for visitors since the Roman times.
The 50-kilometer stretch of coastline is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is made up of dozens of towns, beaches, coves and cliffs. The beauty of the Amalfi Coast is legendary and has inspired artists, writers and travelers from all over the world. And it's no wonder why: here, lively village-strewn cliffs jut into the sea, offering glimpses of views, restaurants and boutiques worthy of central Milan.
During the summer, notes of lemon waft in the air and festivities animate the villages along the route from the Gulf of Naples to the Gulf of Salerno, making it the ideal time to travel to the Amalfi Coast.
The southern side of the Sorrento peninsula that divides the Gulf of Naples from that of Salerno has always been a seaside and tourist resort for lovers of sailing holidays: its chalk cliffs fall into the intense blue sea, creating bays of extraordinary beauty on the terraces suspended over the landscaped sea and, together with its rich artistic heritage, make it one of the most renowned places in Italy and in the world, so much so that it deserves recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site: land of colors, sirens and city of gardens. If you love art and history, you can take a comfortable train that will take you to the incredible excavations of Pompeii.
Alternatively, Sorrento will win you over with its many attractions and breathtaking views. At dinner, whether it's in starred restaurants or characteristic trattorias, remember that in Sorrento cooking is art: a plate of legendary Sorrento-style gnocchi might be enough to believe it.
Isle of Capri
Capri is probably the most celebrated place on this sailing itinerary and you will have no doubts as to why. Steep cliffs rise majestically from a sea of impossibly blue; the elegant villas drip with wisteria and bougainvillea; pristine gardens surround everything. Capri's most famous attraction is the Faraglioni, undoubtedly the most representative image of this destination: an unmissable spot for every guest of our sailing catamarans lucky enough to be there.
Island of Ischia
Setting sail for Ischiia, you dock at the port of the small village of Sant'Angelo, the
landscape is the classic Mediterranean seaside village, with colorful houses, narrow alleys, souvenir shops, ice cream parlors, restaurants and bars with outdoor tables... The main attraction of the island are its thermal waters, since it is located in the center of a volcanic area, so why not visit a thermal pool? Don't forget a romantic walk near the Aragonese castle: here you will find typical restaurants for freshly caught fish, to be accompanied by a bottle of Biancolella, the typical white wine of the island.
Start the day with a nice dip in the bay of Sorgeto: a real outdoor thermal park with Turkish bath with minerals, sauna and therapeutic steam. Then, towards nearby Procida, the island so famous for Massimo Troisi's film "Il Postino". An evening at Corricella, a typical postcard of the island, is not to be missed: colored houses, small restaurants and fishermen pulling their nets.
Amalfi and Positano
Amalfi, where we will moor our catamaran in the small port located right in the center of the town. You will start your discovery of the Amalfi Coast right in the middle of the colorful alleys of Amalfi: you will be breathless at the sight of its majestic Cathedral. You cannot miss a Lemon Delight for a snack in the famous pastry shop in the historic centre.
Circumnavigating Campanella, we will head towards Positano, one of the most famous destinations on the Amalfi Coast. Along the way we will pass in front of the Bagni della Regina Giovanna, the Bay of Ieranto, a protected marine area, and Nerano: you could stop for lunch in one of the many restaurants on the beach. After crossing the small archipelago of Li Galli, you will enjoy the incomparable view of Positano, with its infinite steps and narrow streets perpendicular to the sea. Lose yourself in its colorful and lively alleys: you can dine in an exclusive restaurant with a view, or under the starlight on your sailboat, with the most beautiful view you can imagine.
