Portorosa Yacht Charter


The temperate weather and mild winds of north-east Sicily make our newest Mediterranean base a great starting point for tours of the Sicilian coast, or voyages north around the remarkable, UNESCO-protected Aeolian Islands. A collection of dramatic islands and dormant volcanoes that rise theatrically from the sea, they aptly take their name from Aeolus, god of the winds, who tends to smile on this slice of Italy.


Set a course for Stromboli and marvel at the scale and lava-spewing force of Europe’s second-largest active volcano. It’s not all rugged cliffs and steaming craters though; the Aeolian Islands also have a softer, more beautiful side, with sandy beaches and lush greenery protected by natural harbours. Head to Vulcano for superb swimming, spectacular views and black rock formations; or discover the lush vegetation of unspoilt Salina, punctuated by three enormous peaks.


Hike mountain trails, bathe in thermal springs and snorkel in clear seas. Sample the local delicacies; Sicilian food and drink is rightly famous around the world. Embark on an adventure that takes you through ragged, timeless Filicudi to blooming Salina, isolated Alicudi, towering Stromboli, lively little Panarea and on to the main Aoelian island of Lipari. Revel in the area’s unique blend of food, history, architecture and art. More adventurous sailors may even fancy sailing one way from Portorosa to Tropea, Palermo or Procida, or take on the challenge of a two-week Sicilian coastal and open water voyage all the way down to magical Malta.

It is the most ragged of the islands and its steep slopes, rocky coastlines and craters are its main features. The tallest of the craters is Fossa dell Felici (773m).
