CAMPANIA SAILING EXPERIENCE
Between the coasts of Campania and those of the beautiful islands of Ischia, Procida and Capri, it is possible to navigate between enchanting coves and inlets. During the boat trip, relying on the experience of our skippers is the best way to fully enjoy the day; they will guide you to discover hidden places and advise you on the most suggestive and safe places to stop and relax.
The island of Procida, the smallest of the Phlegraean islands, was elected capital of Italian culture in 2022. It has numerous beaches and very characteristic coves, but the most fascinating place is certainly Corricella, an ancient fishing village famous for its small pastel-colored houses overlooking the sea. It is here that the famous scenes of “Il Postino” with the great Massimo Troisi were shot.
Going south-west, we find a pedestrian bridge that connects the island of Procida with Vivara, a small unspoiled island, part of an ancient volcanic crater, now a state nature reserve and protected natural oasis.
Moving on to the island of Ischia, larger and equally famous and evocative, known mainly as a thermal island, you can stop in the bay of the Aragonese Castle, a postcard from the Campania region waiting to be discovered. Another fascinating bay of Ischia is the bay of Sant’Angelo, south of the island, where you will find a unique and picturesque village. Finally, do not miss the opportunity of a free thermal bath directly in the sea: in the bay of Sorgeto, the hot thermal water mixes with the sea currents, creating natural pools with temperatures of about 35/37 °.
Capri, exclusive and elegant, is the most famous of the Phlegrean islands, located just over 2.5 miles from Punta Campanella. Here, the first tourist spot, famous all over the world, are the Faraglioni of Capri, in the south east of the island. Anyone who decides to spend a day on a boat in Capri cannot fail to visit this place, a favorite destination for many international celebrities. Not far away, there is the bay of Marina Piccola, facing south, with its typically “caprese” charm that attracts many boats. North of the island of Capri, we find the main port of the island, Marina Grande. To the north-west we have the famous Blue Grotto, another unmissable destination for excursions, which can be accessed by rowing boats. There is talk of an extremely suggestive place where you find yourself floating on water so blue that it seems to float in the sky.
Approaching the coasts of Campania, there are many areas where you can anchor and enjoy a few hours of relaxation on the boat. Right in front of the island of Procida, we find Monte di Procida which marks the north end of the Gulf of Naples, while Punta Campanella constitutes its south end and divides the Gulf of Naples from the Gulf of Salerno. In the Gulf of Naples there are many places to discover: in the Campi Flegrei you can admire Monte di Procida and its characteristic San Martino islet, the islet of Punta Pennata and the enchanting Schiacchetiello beach in Bacoli, the submerged Archaeological Park of Baia , where equipped with a mask you can admire the remains of the submerged Roman city. Continuing along the coast between Capo Miseno and Posillipo you will reach Borgo Marinari where the majestic Castel dell’Ovo stands and dominates, imposing in the background, the Vesuvius.
Continuing south we find the magnificent Sorrento and Amalfi coasts. Here, in addition to the most famous towns of Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano, there are numerous other places that offer glimpses of coasts and natural bays where the breathtaking landscape is guaranteed. From Amalfi you can reach the Emerald Grotto, the interior of which is full of stalactites and stalagmites which, suspended over emerald green water, create a magical corner.
In the southernmost part of Campania there is the Cilento area, less famous but equally noteworthy for its clear and crystalline water and its bays where you can enjoy all the charm and tranquility of the area. The coastal area that goes from Agropoli – with its famous Trentanova bay – to Sapri, passing through Punta Licosa, Acciaroli, Palinuro, Marina di Camerota with the famous Cala Bianca beach, leaves you spoiled for choice!
All the coasts of Campania offer, in fact, wonderful places to admire and explore.
You just have to choose the destination and the type of boat you prefer, and then let go of the moorings and enjoy your well-deserved relaxation!
Campania boasts an ancient culinary tradition and numerous food and wine excellences known throughout the world. In fact, the region holds the record in Italy for the number of agri-food products recognized by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies. We are talking about IGP and DOP products, which are considered a symbol of made in Italy. Not only food then but also wines to accompany the meals, such as Taurasi, Greco di tufo, Fiano di Avellino, Aglianico del Taburno, Falerno del Massico, Falanghina del Sannio, each coming from different areas of Campania, each with its own characteristics that they will make your taste buds rejoice.
The combination of these excellences together with many other specialties of the region, the beauty of the places and the different peculiarities of the places, makes every corner of Campania unique in its kind.
Naples and Campania, therefore, are not just pizza (Unesco Heritage since 2017), but a set of many ingredients and specialties that make the food and wine experience a part of your holiday that cannot be missed; many skippers and owners on board during your rental organize real food and wine “experiences” on a boat or simply lunches that recall the Campania food and wine. By boat, all this is even more suggestive and particular.
In fact, during the summer, along the Campania coasts or between the coves of the famous islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, tourists or simply the locals cannot resist the excellence of Campania even by boat; Caprese (mozzarella, tomato and basil), local cured meats and much more for the simpler ones.
The most demanding, equipped with a kitchen on board, certainly do not miss a good spaghetti with clams or a pasta with delicious sea urchins, all accompanied by a fresh glass of white wine from our beloved Campania.
