Li Galli

Italy

It can be tough to tear yourself away from your superyacht even for just one night, but with the luxurious accommodation found on some private islands, it can be worth it.

Round-the-clock service, perfectly prepared local cuisine and some of the best beaches in the world to share with only your nearest and dearest — we are certain that dropping anchor and tendering out to your very own spot of paradise will be the ultimate addition to your luxury yacht vacation.

1. Li Galli, Italy

Li Galli, sometimes known as Le Sirenuse, is a minuscule archipelago of three atolls (La Rotonda, La Castelluccia and Il Gallo Lungo). Just off the Amalfi Coast, it was one of the most exclusive private islands owned by celebrities, as it used to belong to iconic Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev. It has since become one of the most luxurious Mediterranean getaways, with visitors including the likes of Sophia Loren, Jackie Kennedy and Greta Garbo.

Rates: Rates for exclusive use for 12 guests start from €220,000 per week, which includes catering, private yacht and staff.

While you're there: This is the perfect spot to unwind and to get away from it all, so guests can enjoy drinks and fresh fruit from the on-site vegetable gardens by one of two beautiful stone pools, or on the atmospheric dark green-tiled terrace.

Those after a more active island adventure can make use of two boats (for day trips to Positano, Capri or other spots on the Amalfi Coast), a Waverunner, canoe and surfboards. Additionally, her rugged coastline is home to a number of incredible grottoes and cave diving spots.

The six guest bedrooms are split between the main house and the tower, all of which were carefully decorated by Nureyev himself (he even went all the way to Seville to pick up some Turkish tiles for one of the rooms) and have been restored to their former glory in recent years. Bohemian, spacious and riddled with stunning artworks, kaleidoscopic tiles and furniture, the property also boasts numerous al fresco dining areas with stunning sea views, beautifully kept gardens, a helipad, a gym and a chapel, which is predominantly used for weddings.

Getting there: Superyachts up to 40 metres can moor in Marina Piccola Sorrento and superyachts up to 100 metres can moor at nearby Marina di Stabia — from here, tender around the island. Alternatively, superyachts can drop anchor nearby and tender to the island.
