Sicily Sailing Holidays

Sicily is the home of Mount Etna, Europe's tallest and most active volcano. Yacht charter in Sicily is the perfect place for a quiet, but an adventurous sailing holiday, with a dozen of historic and picturesque towns to explore.

Yacht Charter in Sicily

Charter a catamaran or a sailing yacht and sail along the eastern coast, from the historic city Syracuse to more urban Catania and touristic Taormina. If you're not experienced, you better charter a skippered yacht to sail north of Messina or to Lampedusa and Pantelleria islands. On the other hand, the northern and western coasts are excellent sailing destinations for beginners, fishermen and tourists who want to enjoy the traditional Sicilian cuisine, swim on sandy beaches and take pictures of ancient monuments.

The sailing season starts in April and ends in October. Regattas are held from March to August.
