Due to the Naples Gulf’s wonderful panoramas, this destination is by far one of my favourites. The crystal waters, the excellent food and wines, and the historic sites make it such a charming area for those who are not only interested in the sea, but those who enjoy the finer things in life too like the simply irresistible food and wine
DROP ANCHOR:There are two main anchorage spots in the area
THE FARAGLIONI BAY (Capri)
A place one must visit at least once in a lifetime. Its beauty and history (last remnants of what once was a unique and immense grotto) are ideal for an unforgettable swim if the season is right, followed by a lunch in one of the restaurants behind Tragara Point.
LI GALLI BAY (in front of Positano)
The panorama is breathtaking and the snorkeling among the rocks is an amazing experience. The area and the coast between Positano and Capri boasts plenty of grottos where one can swim to a backdrop of cliffs overlooking the sea.
DON ALFONSO, SANT’AGATA SUI DUE GOLFI (the mainland in front of Capri)
The best way to arrive is by berthing your yacht in Sorrento and taking a taxi to the restaurant. Sant’Agata sui due Golfi (means: Holy Agata on the two Gulfs) is a small town in the strip that divides Naples’ Gulf from Salerno’s Gulf.
Don Alfonso is probably the most famous and most expensive restaurant in the area. Apart the excellent food and wine, fresh fish, mozzarella, excellent Italian oils, the biggest draw to this place are the cooking classes that the owner organises to teach his guests the secrets of Mediterranean cuisine. Foreign guests really enjoy this; they learn how to make homemade pasta, pizza, etc. www.donalfonso.com
