Capraia yacht charter
Located between the French island of Corsica and the Italian province of Livorno in Tuscany, the island of Capraia is of volcanic origin with an area of roughly 19 square kms. Part of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park and now a marine reserve, Capraia is a charter paradise.
Capraia Porto is the sole marina on the island. With 60 berths complete with laid moorings, it is not the largest marina; however, during the yacht charter season in Italy, buoys are positioned just to the south of the bay to indicate further areas for anchorage. Capraia is a port of call for migratory birds on their way from Europe to Africa, so keep your binoculars ready for some interesting spotting.
The San Giorgio Fortress of Porto di Capraia
This small harbour is connected to the village by the island’s one and only asphalt road. The San Giorgio fortress dominates Porto di Capraia, and bars, restaurants and shops can be found in its cobbled and picturesque streets.
Capo Ferraione Lighthouse and the Three Towers
One of the island’s landmarks to be viewed on a Capraia yacht charter is the Capo Ferraione lighthouse; its white square tower and neighbouring fort make it particularly distinctive on the island’s coastline. Other island sights of particular cultural and historical interest include the church of St Nicole and the sacred heart of Jesus, the church of Assunta, the church and convent of St Antonio and the three towers; Torre dello Zenobito, Torre della Teja and the Torre del Porto.
Incredible Local Delicacies, Seafood and Fish
Try the locally made honey, blackberry liqueur, goat cheese, fig jam, and of course seafood. Capraia is a great place to fish off the back of the yacht.
