Amalfi Coast Highlights for your Luxury Yacht Charter
The Amalfi Coast in Italy is a spectacular yacht charter destination famous for the unique beauty of its landscape along with fascinating history, culture and world famous cuisine. A charter onboard a luxury yacht is the most enjoyable way to explore the area, moving freely from one place to another, while being pampered by your professional crew.
We know that you will be left simply spellbound by the magnificent terrain and itinerary options for exploring this area. From your luxury charter yacht you will see twisting roads winding through rocky cliffs with tantalising glimpses of small villages, secluded bays and inlets; all from a clear blue sea. Lush green Mediterranean flora colours the slopes of the surrounding hills and cliffs. This journey will lead you to many famous places. Here are a few of our favourite spots:
The town that this dramatically beautiful coast is named after, Amalfi, is a shimmering Medieval city based around a traditional fishing village. Amalfi Town is located in the heart of the region in a ravine with the impressive Monte Cerreto its natural overseer and an imposing 9th century Church of Santa Maria Maggiore and Cloister of Paradise at its centre. Aside from its natural beauty there are some superb restaurants and bars to explore.
A visit to the romantic mountain-top village of Ravello is recommended. It is a peaceful charming place that has long been the playground of the rich and famous. Jacqueline Kennedy, Greta Garbo and Tennessee Williams all holidayed here and it is easy to see why people keep coming back. It is a refined place, stylish and glamorous, home to numerous lavish villas and manicured gardens. The main Piazza del Vescovado has a fantastic atmosphere where you can enjoy incredible cuisine relaxed under the canopies of al-fresco restaurants and cafes.
Approaching Positano by yacht you will be treated to an iconic vertical panorama of pastel-coloured houses climbing the hills, and in the foreground silvery grey beaches and the turquoise of the sea. Spiaggia Grande is the most famous beach on the Amalfi Coast, attracting a fashionable crowd of celebrities and charter guests. The beach is 300 meters long making it the largest in the area, and is back-dropped against the cliff-side town and home to some of the nicest beach clubs, turning up the volume after 3pm.
Sorrento is a quaint and beautiful Italian town winding along a cliff above a small beach and two harbors. The town is has a narrow ravine runing through it formed by a former mountain stream. The people are friendly and hard working and there are many fine old shops selling the ceramics, lacework and intarsio (marquetry items) as well as the local liqueur made from Sorrento lemons, limoncello, that are all famously produced here. Overlooked by Mt Vesuvius it also a good base to explore Pompeii and other archaeological sites to the north.
While not strictly on the Amalfi Coast you cannot visit this area without visiting Capri, the legendary idyllic jewel of the islands in the Bay of Naples. These two chic towns, Capri and Anacapri offer some great shopping with a mix of designer boutiques and local producers offering something a bit unique, from shoes and fabrics to pottery and jewellery along with cool cafes and ritzy restaurants. They can be a little touristy but step beyond these two centres and you’ll discover a Capri that still retains an unspoilt charm.
