Amalfi Coast Luxury Yachting Guide

The coastline of Amalfi is a joy for sightseers and lovers of the dolce vita - the Italians know they've got something of a treasure here. No matter what the reason you might choose to visit this precious part of the Mediterranean coast, the bewitching atmosphere of Amalfi and its spectacular beauty will leave the most lasting impression.

The magic of the “Costa Amalfitana” is that while it is a magnet for jetsetters with its multitude of ultra luxury five-star hotels, Michelin starred restaurants and yachts, what characterizes the region is its effortless Mediterranean simplicity.

Moorish style villages cling to dramatic jagged cliffs and the sea breeze mingles with scents of lemons. The villages that string along the Amalfi Coast have cobblestoned streets lined with bougainvillea-covered villas, Arabic arches, and countless corners with million dollar views.

The monuments testify to the town's past as a maritime power. Yet Amalfi isn't stuck in a time warp; modern Neapolitan life is very much alive here. The Amalfi coastline is a place of dazzling natural beauty and traditional Italian rustic charm. With a perfect climate, supremely luxurious hotels, first-class seafood restaurants and high-end designer boutiques found around every corner, you will find it very hard to stay aboard.

As you sail about the coast’s seductive shores, its steep architecture immediately draws your gaze and beckons you into its enclave of majestic hotels, cheek-by-jowl apartments and narrow staircases. Within its maze of historic Italian alleyways are exotic boutiques, fine restaurants serving the freshest seafood, inviting bars and quaint shops offering the best locally-made gifts and souvenirs.

You'll find it difficult to fault the hospitality and facilities, not to mention the amazing views. If you can drag yourself away from the beach, Amalfi town is a delight for shopaholics and foodies. The magnificent humbug-striped Duomo Sant' Andrea, fronted by a sweep of 60 steps, forms the centrepiece.

Wander the steep, narrow streets and you'll also find the serene marble courtyards lined with cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops packed with all things lemony, including variously shaped bottles of the famous limoncello liqueur, a local speciality.
