On the sixth day of your Cinque Terre boat charter you get to Corniglia where a long and spectacular cliff connects to a nearby town by a staircase of 365 steps, just like the days of the year. The village is very ancient and charming and has preserved stone houses. From the terrace, which is the last point of the village overlooking the sea, you can admire the ancient valley of the mills. Relax for a day on the Guvano beach and enjoy an invigorating swim in the sea. If you arrive by yacht in May, do not miss the legendary local festivities, such as “Stappamaggio,” the feast of the “Sciacchetrà.”
On the seventh day you will arrive in Vernazza, a town that consists of a complex web of “alleys” and steep staircases. Go ashore and reach the small square by the sea that is the center of the town and where there is a church dedicated to St. Margaret of Antioch, or go to the castle located on the other side of town.
You will reach Monterosso on the eighth day your Liguria yacht charter holidays: it is a small fishing village, which is a part of the “Cinque Terre National Park”. Get off the yacht and walk in the historic center along the “narrow streets,” where you can drink a glass of “sciacchetrà” in one of the local wineries or take a stroll to the former Convent of the Capuchins.
You can reach Levanto on the ninth day of your luxury yacht charter in Cinque Terre. It is an agricultural village, called “the gateway to the Cinque Terre.” It boasts one of the largest beaches in the area, which has recently become popular with surfers. In Levanto you can see the church of St Andrew, the medieval lodge, an ancient fortress surrounding the village and the clock tower. Before going back aboard your hired yacht, try the famous “gattafin” and stock up on the wonderful local olive oil.
On the tenth day of your Cinque Terre boat charter navigate to Bonassola, one of the most picturesque towns on the Ligurian coast with a myriad of narrow alleyways filled with local craft shops. The bay has a half-moon shape and offers a well-equipped beach. In Bonassola there are several spectacular bars and restaurants perfect for a relaxing drink or for a romantic dinner by candlelight.
The last stop of your luxury yacht charter in Liguria is Deiva Marina, which has one of the largest sandy beaches in Liguria. You can enjoy an invigorating swim in the clear blue sea there, which has been awarded the European Blue Flag several times. Strategically located between the “Cinque Terre” and Portofino, Deiva Marina is connected to the most beautiful resorts of the “Riviera di Levante” and is the ideal destination for sea lovers.
