What to do in Italy?
Renting a catamaran implies many advantages, but you need to know that it also has its needs. For example, it requires a particularly large and spacious berth place, and not all ports have so much space. For this reason, we recommend the catamaran to visit places that are not frequented by mass tourism but still within reach of well-equipped ports.
With no doubt the place that best corresponds to this description is the “Isola dei mori”: by renting a catamaran in Sardinia
you can discover little known bays that are just few miles away from well-known holiday resorts. You can easily do that with your boat and reach: Isola di Piana, the famous Villasimius, or the paradises of Cala Goloritze and Cala Mariolu.
The Amalfi Coast
is another stunner, especially during July and August with the peak temperatures. Sail through starting from Amalfi heading towards Positano then head to Capri! Why not stop at Sorrento on your way back? The choice is yours.
Your catamaran will prove to be an excellent choice even among the waters of Sicily
, where the sun and the good weather will allow you to enjoy the maximum comfort of your boat. We can also suggest different destinations such as Favignana and Milazzo, from which you can leave for Vulcano and the Isole Eolie!
In the region of Tuscany
, hiring a catamaran in Italy is another dream come true. You can visit Isola d’Elba
and the surrounding small islands during your charter holiday. Shaped like a fish, this Italian island has 147 km of coastline with rock and sandy beaches throughout the area.
Cinque Terre, made up of 5 fishing village towns (Vernazza, Manarola, Riomaggiore, Monteross and Corniglia), is another stunner in Liguria. A perfect catamaran vacation in Italy with the freedom to enjoy the water at any time and get to know the towns. Getting to eat the delicious local food, see the different parts of the village and admire the breathtaking views.
We can’t forget about the north of Italy! Venice is a great place to visit. The timeless enchanting city is dreamy and romantic with a lot of mystery and drama around it. Enjoy a mix of majestic Italian architecture, food and discover more with your love.
How is the weather in Italy?
A catamaran is a perfect boat during good weather days characterised by wind and sun: the first one will push your sail towards those paradise beaches, the second one will provide you with heat, whilst its rays shine on the waves making them glisten.
Summer in Southern Italy lasts many months: in Sardinia, it’s long, hot and dry, with average temperatures on the coast between 30º/35º (80º-95º F); but the weather is more bearable thanks to the Mistral and West winds, the same ones that will allow you to surf at full speed with your catamaran! In Sicily, the good weather is even more assured! The sun and the hot wind coming from North Africa bring temperatures to rise above 35º (95º F). For these reasons, always having the sea at your disposal, combined with the comfort of the catamaran is the perfect getaway.
