Sicily Yacht Charters
Sicily itself does not rank highly in our table of preferred sailing destinations. Much of the coast is featureless and the prevailing westerly makes almost every possible anchorage at best rolly, at worst dangerous. There are some places of outstanding interest and beauty - Catania, Palermo, Agrigento, and Selinunte all spring to mind - but the real beauty is inland, not on the coast.
In purely sailing terms, the Egadi Islands in the west off Trapani & Marsala, and above all the volcanic Aeolian Islands off the north-east coast are the great attractions. There are significant charter fleets at Portorosa for the Aeolians, Palermo, and Marina di Ragusa.
Sicily is however also we think the host of the largest winter liveaboard communities in the Mediterranean at Marina di Ragusa and Licata.
