ALL THE BEAUTY
OF THE GULF
Not far from their bigger sister, the island of Ischia, Procida and the nearby islet of Vivara are a desirable destination for a day full of good food and a dip in the sea. Low and sandy coasts alternate with strips of high and rugged coasts overlooking the sea. A nice alternating promontories, bays and coves that offer an ideal shelter to navigation. Featured by three ports positioned on different sides of the island, Procida also includes the Regno di Nettuno Protected Marine Area.
SOME LUXURY YACHTS FOR CHARTER IN THIS AREA
Procida, described by the writer Elsa Morante in her novel “Arturo’s Island”, presents narrow streets lined with pastel-colored houses that lean against each other and are fragrant with the scent of the surrounding orchards and prickly pears. In the nine districts that make up its territory time seems to have stopped, offering authentic ambience during a luxury charter cruise in the Gulf of Naples.
The island’s main harbor is Marina Grande, dominated by the crenelated Palazzo Montefusco, while Marina Corricella – where the Italian actor Massimo Troisi filmed his movie “Il Postino” – is the oldest district, home to several small fish restaurants offering a laid-back ambience away from the chaos.
Discover Procida on a luxury charter
Procida has many bays and inlets of transparent waters, like the beaches of Ciraccio and Chiaiolella. The shallow waters of Porto Vecchio and Chiaia are a great option for families with children.
Save time to visit the outcrop of Vivara that is connected to the island of Procida by a picturesque small bridge. This formation is nothing other than the western side of the old volcano that gave origin to some of the Phlaegrean islands. Today, it is a WWF protected area managed with care by the local wildlife organizations with the help of the regional authorities.
