A charter in Italy would be incomplete without a visit to the main islands like Sardinia, Sicily or Elba. Take advantage of your sailboat charter in Calabria to discover these Mediterranean jewels. As Sardinia is located in a particularly windy region, a sailing trip is the best way to get around the island. The island of Elba is located only 10 kilometres from the Tuscan Riviera. The island offers everything for an excellent holiday; it is a good choice for both active tourists and travellers looking for some rest and relaxation. Thanks to the unique climate, the summer season starts in mid-April and lasts until mid-October. Great landmarks located all over the island make recreation on picturesque beaches even more incredible.
In the northern part of Italy, the region of Liguria can be visited by motorboat as well as by sailboat or catamaran. Scuba diving lovers can take advantage of the various anchorages along the way to explore the seabed. If you choose a sailboat charter in Calabria with an on-board crew, you will be able to devote more time to your favourite water-based activities. We highly recommend a snorkelling tour through the Cinque Terre Marine Park – a truly unforgettable experience!
