Lay back on your deck as the Yacht sails through a pastel blue ocean, by a coastline covered with silent, windswept highlands and cliffs.

Top Palermo Boat Charter Destinations: Alicudi
Alicudi Yacht Charter A very less visited place among the Aeolian Islands, Alicudi is a small port city with scarce population and a peaceful ambiance. You can sail around the island, anchoring at few places to stroll through this Agrarian civilisation. The place is far from what one finds in modern metropolitans; still dwelling in the archetypal rural culture. That is the speciality of this place. Instead of booking hotels inside the town, you can halt in your yachts, near the coast and enjoy a bright blue sky changing into soft purplish evenings!

Top Palermo Islands Sailing Charter Destinations: Aegadian Islands
Egadi Islands Yacht Charter: Most guide books quote that the island group consists of three islands: Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo; however, in addition, it contains both small islands of Maraone and Formica. Dating back to prehistoric times, the caves on the islands of Levanzo and Favignana display wall paintings, and the more determined tourist can still venture inside to see examples of both Palaeolithic and Neolithic art. In 241 BC, the islands witnessed the defeat of the Carthaginian fleet from the Romans, led by C. Lutatius Catulus, which put an end to the First Punic War (264 to 241 BC). After the end of Roman supremacy, in the first millennium, the islands succumbed at various times to control under the Saracens, Vandals, Normans and Goths. In the 17th century, the islands belonged to the Genoese family Pallavicini-Rusconi until 1874, when they were offered to Palermo’s Florio family, who helped to create the prolific tuna fishing industry that exists today.

Top Palermo Yacht Week Destinations: Favignana
Favignana Yacht Charter: The largest of the three main islands, Favignana, with its butterfly shape which locally earned it the title of La Farfalla, is just a 20 minute ferry trip from Trapani. This island which featured in Homer’s Odyssey is genuinely worthy of a day trip and is renowned as being the ideal destination for lovers of white, sandy beaches, including the popular Cala Rossa, frequently remarked upon as the island’s most beautiful bay. The rocky outcrops that rise from crystal clear water supply sunbathers tranquil spots to soak up the sun. Be aware though that the trail down to the beach isn’t really suitable for small children or people with restricted mobility. More accessible is Lido Burrone located on the south coast, heated by the jet stream coming from Tunisia, 80 kilometers away. It has a clean white beach suitable for families, as does Cala Azzurra, which also has an easily accessed bay, with, as its name suggests, a magnificent blue sea. The waters around the island provide excellent swimming opportunities and are popular with scuba-diving fans who come to swim inside the sea caves like the Lovers’ Grotto (Grotta degli Innamorati), the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra) and the one that locals say could be heard moaning throughout the winter, the Grotto of Sighs (Grotta dei Sospiri). The main town is dominated by the Arab built fort and watchtower of Santa Caterina and has two major squares, where markets can often be found; however, the once vibrant community market is now often marred by traders selling cheap Chinese imported goods, but the low built houses that surround the piazza are worthy of a photographic opportunity. The influence of the Florio family can be found in Palazzo Florio near the harbour, and the skeleton of the abandoned Florio tuna fishery. If you’re trying to soak up the sun on Favignana, my advice is to travel from high season, as the shores during August in particular can be crowded.

Top Palermo Yacht Charter Destinations: Levanzo
Levanzo Yacht Charter: Levanzo is the smallest of the three islands and its rocky coastline gives it a more rugged appearance, however what it lacks aesthetically, it makes up for with play, making it an ideal spot for photography enthusiasts. Much of the island is formed by hills, with its highest peak being only 278m; the byword for the island is, little. Everything, even the inhabitants, is minimal and concentrated in Cala Dogana, the island’s only village. But as they say, size is not everything. Levanzo has a handful of sandy beaches which are less crowded and is a great retreat for anyone wanting to escape the excesses of modern living; here, you can unwind and enjoy the relaxed pace of life. After a morning sunbathing, why not escape the heat of the day inside the Grotta dei Genovesi, where you can study the early etchings of Prehistoric man; the artworks are a record of early life and depict scenes of farming, fishing and animal husbandry, giving us an insight into the lives of a people long since gone. The island has two shops, two restaurants that sell excellent fish dishes and two resorts, meaning it is not some desolate outpost in the sea; even if, occasionally, there’s nothing better than being at a place where simple pleasures like walking, swimming and taking it easy are all a body requirements.
