Insider's guide: 4 of the best picnic spots in the Mediterranean

Insider's guide: 4 of the best picnic spots in the Mediterranean

Baia di Ieranto, Amalfi Coast

The best picnic spot to enjoy the Odyssey

Antonio Mellino — Baia di Ieranto, Amalfi Coast

One of the best waterside picnic spots is the secluded Baia di leranto beach on the Amalfi Coast.

Antonio Mellino says: “To enjoy this part of Italy more peacefully you could go for a picnic on a secluded beach in the Baia di Ieranto, where the sirens in the Odyssey tried to seduce Ulysses. You can walk from Nerano – it’s tough but worth it. But the best markets to pick up fresh produce for your picnic are in Piano di Sorrento, on the northern coast of the peninsula, so it may be better to approach by boat.”

Need to know: Heading to Baia di Ieranto is a great way to experience one of the destinations from Homer’s Odyssey by luxury yacht. The name Ieranto derives from the Greek "Ieros” meaning "sacred” and the beach is breathtakingly beautiful with spectacular views across the incredibly blue sea.

How to get there by a superyacht: A picnic in Baia di Ieranto can be included while exploring Capri, Ischia and the Amalfi Coast by superyacht or as part of a superyacht charter in the Bay of Naples.
