Marina Piccola, Capri
It’s not hard to understand why the Amalfi Coast attracts some of the world's largest superyachts every summer. Dotted with secluded coves, clear blue waters guarded by towering cliffs where picture-perfect villages perch precariously, numerous islands and a guest list that rivals a Hollywood premiere, the Amalfi Coast is an ideal destination to explore by yacht. To stay away from the crowds and admire from afar we have put together our top four anchorage’s on the Amalfi Coast.
1. Marina Piccola, Capri
You simply can’t visit the Amalfi coast without a stop in Capri, where celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Beyoncé are frequently spotted on superyachts . Marina Piccola, located to the south of Capri is one of the most visually stunning anchorages in the area. Legend states that this was the chosen spot where, according to Greek mythology, the Sirens seduced Ulysses. It is not hard to see why, the bay is guarded by a large wall of rock to its left which wards off strong winds leaving a calm and sunny spot ideal for dropping anchor. The water is crystal clear — synonymous with the region — so get out on the water toys, dive off the side of your superyacht or swim to shore. This anchorage lies directly opposite Faraglioni beach and in the vicinity of the famed Capri giant sea stacks.
Take the tender to : Fontelina beach club. This delightful Capri Beach Club serves tasty, freshly caught seafood lunches. Run by local family Antonio Arcucci, and Gaetano and Mario Gargiulo, this club is the ideal daytime hangout.
