Insider’s guide: 4 hidden gems in the Adriatic to discover by superyacht

Insider’s guide: 4 hidden gems in the Adriatic to discover by superyacht

1 of 4 1/4
Superyacht destination Procida


Sleepy boats yawning in the harbour, towns that shut down in the heat of the long siesta and sunsets brimming with the scent of limoncello and the freshest seafood, or dazzling celebrity havens where movie stars and princes come out to play – the Adriatic is a veritable wonder with two very different sides.

Captain Carl Sputh of superyacht Starfire reveals four hidden gems if you are planning a private cruise or luxury yacht charter in the Adriatic.

1. Procida

Far from the madding crowds you will find an island where sleepy boats bob like distant dreams in the harbour, where old men sit with crinkled faces turned to the sun, and where simple white linen tables are laden with fresh fish caught in the bay. Procida is the Italy of many moons ago. The setting for Anthony Minghella’s 1999 film The Talented Mr. Ripley, the island is a must for anyone wishing to visit movie locations on a luxury yacht. Narrow streets of crumbling stairs wind around the town, a curve of sand perched between golden rocks and flanked by visions of cobalt blue invite you to creep into the water in the heavy heat of the afternoon, and stores are crammed with antiques and curiosities from another time and place.
