The Bay of Naples and the surrounding Islands are all very beautiful. One month would cover a lot of ground. From Naples I would sail West to Isola d Ischia. A good anchorage here to the south of Castello d'Ischia. Leave the yacht anchored , whistle up the local taxi for a ride to shore for 3 Euro and explore the old Castle.
From there a quick crossing to Procida, anchor
in Corricella , dingy to shore for a look around and an overnight.
Next day either head
west again for the Pontine Islands.
Pontine Islands, anchor
outside the old Roman Galley
Port of Ventotene . Check out the Port said to have been dug from the rock way back when Caesar was a boy. Worthwhile noting the old bollards carved out of rock and the store sheds, rock caves still being used today. From there to Ponza. Lots of anchorages
on the East Coast
of Ponza to hide from the prevailing NW. Crystal clear waters and incredible rock formations. Spend two days here just soaking it up, moving each night for an ever better surround.
If you are intending to just relax, enjoy a swim and generally wind
down, this is a good spot to do so. You may easily spend a week here puddle jumping anchorages around the Islands.
Ok you can spend more time on some of the other Islands around but I would then head
Another two ti three days here. You can anchor outside the Main harbour (Marina Grand) in calm weather
, if a NW blowing hide around the S side. Plenty of good spots to anchor here. It is a quick and cheap
bus ride to look around the Island from here.
You may wish to call into Sorrento , again anchor outside the harbour if the weather
is ok, the Harbour here cost us 150 Euro(40''Leopard Cat) to hide from a Gale coming througfh. A good place to hire a car and have a look around.
I would probably move on from here, sail around to the Amalfi Coast with our first stop Positano. We were quoted 100 and 130 Euros for a mooring
Buoy here (for a cat), we anchored without a problem, good holding to the East of the mooring
Positano is well worth a look around.
Next day anchor outside Amalfi . Another beautiful old city to walk around.Walk inland in a northerly direction through the old toen. Follow the valley North, it will lead you up and into a forrest walk with waterfalls and swimming holes. Magic on a hot day.
You could spend some more time in a few sheltered bays around here, they are all very pretty.
Perhaps head for Salerno. Again anchor to the East side of the commercial
port in the bay between the two Marinas
. Good protection here from NW wind. Here and Sorrento are good places to leave the yacht for a look at Pompei!
You may prefer to do this in reverse. The best swimming and cleanest water
is around the Pontine Islands.
Go for it
