With its temperate weather, mild winds and crystal waters, it is no surprise that Portorosa, Sicily is a popular tourist destination.
Nestled into the rugged North Eastern landscape of Sicily, Marina Di Portorosa is our newest Mediterranean Port. A bustling Marina, Portorosa boasts views of Mt Etna – the highest active volcano in Europe – luscious greenery and an array of stunning beaches. The perfect place to start your voyage around the South of Italy or Aeolian Islands.
The UNESCO-protected Aeolian Islands are located offshore from Portorosa Marina, making it a wonderful base when sailing this collection of dramatic islands and dormant volcanoes. The Aeolian Islands protrude theatrically from the sea and aptly take their name from Aeolus, the god of the winds, who tends to smile on this slice of Italy.
We all know that Italian food and soft, sandy beaches are a firm favourite amongst families and children Portorosa offers this and much more.
Our Aeolian Charters setting off from Portorosa include a Flotilla option, which is hugely popular with families as it offers support and autonomy with a hostess, skipper and engineer on board with you – and a fleet of other Sunsail Yachts travelling alongside you.
A Portorosa yacht charter offers couples a romantic sailing holiday in the heart of the Mediterranean. Discover intimate bars and village hospitality on Filicudi, the secluded coves on Lipari, and breathtaking sunsets across the Tyrrhenian Sea, all from your choice of Flotilla or Bareboat Charter.
If you want the freedom of a bareboat charter but aren’t a confident sailor, we recommend adding a skipper to your charter.
For First-Time Sailors
If this is your first time visiting the sensational Aeolian Islands, we recommend packing your hiking boots, swimwear and a hat!
For ease and comfort, we recommend following our bespoke Portorosa yacht charter Itinerary, where you’ll have the opportunity to explore the heated springs on the iconic island of Vulcano, Panarea’s picturesque architecture and breathtaking snorkelling spots as well as the dramatic isle of Stromboli (home to Europe’s second largest active volcano) and the unspoilt, magical island of Filicudi.
As a first-time sailor exploring the Aeolian Islands, we recommend our flotilla options for peace of mind and a truly memorable experience. We offer both Catamaran and Monohull Yachts from our Portorosa base,
Catamarans are much more stable and offer a wonderful tanning (lounge or adventure) space (both on and below deck), whereas our Monohulls are far more nippy and cut through the waves, meaning the travel better upwind.
