PROCIDA YACHT CHARTER: ALL THE BEAUTY OF THE GULF OF NAPLES
Not far from their bigger sister, the island of Ischia, Procida, and the nearby islet of Vivara are some of the most desirable destinations for a luxury yacht charter, teeming with lush gardens, verdant citrus groves and pristine sandy promontories, bays and coves that offer ideal shelter for a Procida yacht charter. Procida, derived from a Neapolitan term which is translated to soft beaches, is the perfect holiday destination for those seeking to unwind in luxury.
Procida, described by the writer Elsa Morante in her novel “Arturo’s Island”, presents narrow streets lined with pastel-coloured houses that lean against each other and are fragrant with the scent of the surrounding orchards and prickly pears. Time seems to have stopped in the nine districts that make up its territory, offering authentic ambience during a luxury yacht charter cruise.
The most stunning representation of Procida’s architecture is found in the “villages” and “arches” of the Marina Grande; the Chiaiolella, and especially the Corricella, if seen from afar, offer a unique view of the world.
The island’s main harbour, Marina Grande, is also dominated by the crenellated 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, perfect for those seeking to enjoy their private Procida boat rental.
Bordered by three ports positioned on different sides of the island, Procida also includes the Regno di Nettuno Protected Marine Area – ideal for a luxury yacht charter.
Discover a luxury Procida yacht charter
Along the 16km coastline, Procida has six beaches accessible by road or from your Procida yacht charter anchored just offshore. Drop anchor off the beaches of Ciraccio and Chiaiolella for a dip in the scenic bays filled with local fishing craft. Here, quiet waterfront towns where pink, white, and yellow homes and shops paint the steep slopes a mesmerizing mosaic. It is these delights that make a Procida yacht rental one to remember.
The shallow waters of Porto Vecchio and Chiaia are an excellent option for families with children aboard a Procida yacht charter.
Save time during your Procida boat rental to visit the outcrop of Vivara, which 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.
Of course, a Procida private cruise would not be complete without sightseeing and savoring the local cuisine, some of the most delicious in the world.
