Pontine Islands Yacht Charter Itinerary: the magic of an alluring destination

The Gulfs of Naples and Gaeta harbor a fantastic world where rocks, cliffs, and sun-kissed islands alternate with hidden coves and breathtaking vistas. The Phlegraean and Pontine islands are a heavenly destination to experience, both on and off-board. A hospitable and warm location, Ischia is renowned for its thermal waters that guarantee total mind-and-body relaxation. Opposite the Sorrentine Peninsula, close to its fellow islands, is Capri with its legendary Blue Grotto and iconic Faraglioni. The Pontine Islands, including the renowned Ponza and Ventotene, are a perfect alternative to the usual tourist spots. Discover the top spots to add to a Pontine Islands yacht charter itinerary


Start in Naples, then Capri
The place of departure for your Pontine Islands yacht charter itinerary is Mergellina port in Naples. Before leaving for the cruise, we recommend that you visit the city. You can arrange tours of the historic area to discover the streets, the legends and Neapolitan gastronomy. Or you can book a tour to Posillipo, Vomero and Chiaia, elegant residential areas famous for shopping. After a day of sightseeing, you can relax by embarking on your yacht charter to Capri – the famous luxury island. Here you can dine in the harbor below the Faraglioni and then go ashore, hop on the funicular and reach the famous “Piazzetta” to sit at “Bar Tiberio” and continue the evening in one of the local attractions.


Capri, Ischia
Start the second day of your Pontine Islands yacht charter itinerary by swimming in azure waters and enjoying the picturesque sight of the Faraglioni. You can also arrange a visit to the famous Blue Grotto. Then you can leave for Ischia aboard your charter yacht and spend the day at Maronti beach. You can spend the evening at the ancient fishing village of Sant’Angelo, the real jewel of the Island, famous for its “Piazzetta” (small square), streets and unique charm. You can then anchor your yacht or moor it in the harbor for the night.


The third day of your Pontine Islands yacht charter itinerary can be dedicated to the Island of Ischia, with an excursion to Mount Epomeo, where you can have lunch at one of the celebrated local restaurants. You can spend the evening in the charming town of Forio and moor your luxury charter yacht in the port of Ischia.


Ischia & Thermal Spas
You cannot end your Pontine Islands yacht charter itinerary without swimming in its magical and healing thermal waters. That’s why we advise that you spend the fourth day of your yacht charter in Capri, anchoring around Ischia and visiting one of its beautiful spa parks. Here thermal waters, sea and nature create a perfect combination for relaxation.


Ventotene and Santo Stefano
Only 20 nm from Ischia, navigating your Ponza charter yacht to the west, is the Island of Ventotene. Simple and quiet, Ventotene is an island with crystal-clear waters and beautiful archaeological ruins dating back to the Roman period. A natural reserve and a beautiful sea, perfect for diving and snorkelling, surround the Island. Half a mile away is the islet of Santo Stefano, completely uninhabited, where you can organize an excursion to the ancient Bourbon prison. After a day on the black beach, you can spend the evening having a drink in the “Piazzetta” and dining in one of the typical seafood restaurants on the Island. In Ventotene, you can anchor your luxury hire yacht or moor it in the harbor again.


After Ventotene, your next destination aboard your charter sailing or motor yacht is the Island of Ponza, about 24 nm away. Ponza is the largest of the Pontine Islands and the most entertaining. With its typical Mediterranean architecture, shops, trendy restaurants and dreamy bays with crystal clear waters, the Island annually attracts flocks of young people. The “Frontone” beach comes to life at sunset with many cocktail parties. At this time, you will find many Ponzo yacht charters anchored in front of the bay.


Ponza, Palmarola
Leave in the morning from Ponza with your luxury yacht and cruise to Palmarola, just 5 nm away: a true paradise for snorkelling lovers. Uninhabited and charming, Palmarola houses the only restaurant on the Island in the “Cala del Francese” (French Bay), reachable only by boat. In 20 minutes, you can circumnavigate the whole Island and find the famous Cathedral in a bay in the northern part of the Island. The “Cattedrale” is composed of high cliffs carved by the waves and sculpted by the wind: it reminds of the majestic Gothic cathedrals. You can end your Pontine Islands yacht charter itinerary here or continue until you reach Anzio, which is only 2 hours away. You can also cruise back to Naples, the starting point of your Ponza yacht charter holiday.
