A LUXURY CHARTER
Sorrento is one of the most treasured locations of the Amalfi Coast and a well-known destination of yachters. The town inspired the evocative song “Caruso” by Lucio Dalla, the Italian beloved singer who loved its shimmer sea and wind-swept landscape. Sorrento is a diamond set in the Gulf of Naples and, like every token of love, it is forever.
Sorrento, perched on the hill that presides over the Sorrentine Peninsula, is one of Campania’s most enchanting spots. The square bearing the name of the native poet Torquato Tasso features the baroque Chiesa del Carmine and Palazzo Correale, as well as Grand Hotel Vittoria, a historical resort that once welcomed Richard Wagner and Oscar Wilde. Just like then, today this resort offers its guests a spectacular view of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.
But Sorrento’s authentic heart beats in the fishermen settlement of Marina Grande, a town within the town, enclosed by the ruins of old walls. Once the seat of the shipyards where the typical Sorrentine skiffs were made, it has turned into a gourmet spot with restaurants offering an ample choice of local dishes in an atmosphere that takes you back in time. It also sports 200 meters of volcanic beach.
Yacht charter in Sorrento: the most beautiful beaches
On your holiday on a chartered boat in Sorrento chill and soak in the sun at Bagni della Regina Giovanna, a small round bay backed by limestone rocks that is popular with snorkelers. The inlet called “la Pignatella”, instead, is encased in the rocky coastline and blessed with constant breeze. Other dreamy spots are Sorrento’s tiny beaches of Puolo, Cala di Mitigliano, and the Bay of Ieranto.
Stopping in Sorrento and the Sorrentine Peninsula on a boat for hire lets you appreciate a unique ambience made of the fragrances, flavors, and landscapes of a charming land.
