Week-end by boat discovering Procida
Procida, proclaimed Capital of Culture 2022, with approximately four sq km, is the third largest of the Neapolitan islands.
Far from the nearby islands’ worldliness and chaos, Procida is the destination for lovers of simplicity, tradition, and tranquility.
For the first time, those who discover this island always come back willingly, whether it’s for a weekend or an entire summer. Experiencing it on board a boat is undoubtedly the best way to understand its true essence.
Are you ready for a weekend by boat in Procida?
In this short guide, we will take you on a discovery of this slow-paced, magical, one-of-a-kind island.
Three days are not enough to fully experience the beauty of the place. Not even an entire holiday would be enough, but it is undoubtedly an excellent way to admire the site, its people, and perhaps, an ideal starting point for planning the next boat holidays.
With its strategic position, Procida allows you to reach the other islands of the Gulf of Naples, Ischia, Capri, and the Pontine archipelago, as well as the coast, from Positano to Amalfi.
And if your desire for the sea is excellent, you can also reach the Aeolian Islands and the Egadi Islands.
In short, a sailing holiday offers the luxury of deciding what kind of holiday you want to experience and what you want to see.

We will circumnavigate the islet of Vivara, a nature reserve and archaeological site following the discovery of Mycenaean and pre-Mycenaean remains, dating back to the 12th century. B.C.
The captain will advise you to take a break on the mainland; for those who wish, you can dock in Vivara and reach an ice cream parlor in the marina to enjoy a lemon granita from Procida. It’s time to get back on board. And after a well-deserved aperitif, you can already think about what to enjoy for dinner, it will be up to the crew to delight your palate, but first, there is room for another refreshing dip.
In the moonlight, your boat will take the direction of Ischia, and it is there that we will spend the night. Waking up in this bay is priceless and we want to make your weekend unique, magical. A day to dedicate to Ischia is not much, but it will forever be one of your most beautiful days to remember.
Sunday morning. You will set the alarm, but we advise you not to waste even a minute to experience Ischia as much as possible. The boat tour includes a tour of Ischia, a stop for a swim in the thermal waters of Sorgeto, the possibility of visiting the Poseidon Gardens.
