In one of the most beautiful scenarios in the world, you can rent a boat in Naples for a dream vacation: the Gulf of Naples, the profile of Vesuvius, the islands of Procida, Ischia, Capri and the famous Amalfi Coast. The coast extends along the south side of the peninsula which frames the Gulf. The high coast, of rock and low vegetation, is interspersed with small coves and tiny beaches. They are used as a theatrical background with picturesque villages of colorful houses and terraces, perched on the slope: the most famous are Positano and Amalfi. For the conformation of the territory and the difficulty of moving by land, combined with overcrowding for six months a year, the visit from the boat is the ideal option. On the inner side of the Gulf, the one overlooking Naples, the magnificent Sorrento, which can also be reached by boat. You can enjoy the beauty of the gulf while tasting the local seafood specialties (spaghetti with clams, octopus) and perhaps end with a Limoncello, which has its cradle here. But let's go back to our itinerary by boat: with a boat rental in Naples (Naples Acton, S.Lucia or Marina di Stabia), the first place after rounding the tip of the promontory is Ieranto, an enchanting inlet part of a protected park. Later we find Marina del Cantone, a large beach sheltered from the winds, in front of which you can moor your boat to the buoys that the restaurants offer for free if you go for dinner (and it's worth it!). The coast continues high and rocky, the sea is of an enchanting color and off it stretch Li Galli, three tiny islets with a mythical past (it was believed that the sirens lived there). You cannot moor, but only the view from the outside is enchanting. We arrive after about 3 NM in Positano, one of the most famous destinations in the Mediterranean. The view from the boat is superb: the houses perched vertically give it an appearance of a crib. You can moor at the large buoy field (which offers free taxi-boat service to land) or anchor in front of the nearby beaches of Laurito or Vetica. The visit on foot impresses with the slope of the streets, always winding along the wall and often terraced. There are many luxury boutiques, excellent craft shops, glamorous bars and restaurants on scenic terraces and a small beach. You can visit the Saracen Tower and go up to the Path of the Gods from which the panorama is impressive. Resuming the boat or catamaran, with an east route, we reach the extraordinary fjord of Furore. A tiny inlet that goes very far, surrounded by very high rock walls. Here Roberto Rossellini was enchanted by the landscape, shot the film L'Amore in 1948 and lived a period in a small house together with Anna Magnani. To visit the mini fishing village with dry boats you need to anchor offshore and arrive with the tender. After Capo Conca, we can anchor in Capo dei Marini and visit the Emerald Grotto. Finally we arrive in Amalfi, the most important center of the Amalfi Coast: you can moor at the marina or anchor just outside it. Amalfi, a UNESCO heritage site, is the historical testimony of the oldest (and smallest) Maritime Republic, which had its apogee in the 11th century. Among the intricate alleys, the Naval Museum in the Vecchi Arsenale is worth a visit and at the top of the monumental staircase, the beautiful Arab-Sicilian Cathedral with an adjoining Gothic cloister. Our itineraries by motor or sailing boat now includes Atrani and Maiori, suggestive centers overlooking the sea, the second has the largest beach on the Amalfi Coast. Finally we meet Cetara, with tourist port where to repair in case of need and Vietri, a charming seaside village famous for its ceramics.
