Tropea Yacht Charter

Overview

Tropea is one of the most beautiful towns in Calabria on the south Tyrrhenian coast, and has successfully preserved its 16th century features, offering both historical and architectural delights. It overlooks a crystal clear blue sea with magnificent white, sandy beaches and impressive rock formations. The Sunsail base is located in the main marina, next to a shopping area and open air theater. This is the ideal departure point to visit southern Italy, Sicily or the Aeolian Islands, only 30 miles away.

A Italian sailing vacation from here takes you to the beautiful Aeolian Islands. The cruising grounds blend chic ports of call such as Panarea Island, a favorite among the jet-setter crowd, with the quiet ambience of islands, such as Salina, that are off the beaten path. Swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing on pristine beaches is a delight. Castles, fascinating archaeological sites, and historic waterfront villages are in abundance, as are eclectic boutiques and fine restaurants.

The Aeolian Islands, known for gentle winds and splendid anchorages, and the group of seven islands are separated from each other by just a few short miles. Stromboli is Europe’s biggest active volcano after Etna. The island of Basiluzzo, close to Panerea is uninhabited and an ideal place for swimming, snorkeling and fishing. Panarea, is the smallest, but by far the most picturesque. Lipari, is the oldest and largest of the Aeolian Islands. Vulcano, is famous for its baths in the warm waters of its underwater springs. Salina, is the island with the highest peaks and the only Aeolian island with blooming vegetation. Filicudi, is a beautiful island where time stops - electricity was installed just 10 years ago! The last, Alicudi, is the most isolated of the Aeolian Islands.
