The 8 best Italian bays 2022 for a dream vacation.

Rent a boat and visit the most beautiful bays in Italy to be able to experience a dream vacation. Here they are:

1. Bay of Caminia- Stalettì- Catanzaro- Calabria.

The stretch of the Ionian coast that goes from Catanzaro to Soverato is one of the most beautiful secrets in Italy and, in the heart of this coast, the Bay of Caminia is the beautiful among the beautiful. The Costa degli Aranci is wonderful, passing from the rounded pebble beach of Catanzaro to the cliffs of Copanello and Pietragrande or the beach of very fine and golden sand of Soverato; but the Bay and the beach of Caminia literally take your breath away! A long white beach set between the gray granite cliffs, among prickly pears, eucalyptus trees and caper plants that cascade down to the beach. An uncontaminated nature that seen from the sea can be admired in all its wild beauty.

2. Bay of Zagare- Mattinata- Foggia- Puglia.

Baia delle Zagare, also known as Baia dei Mergoli , is one of the symbols of the Gargano, defined by the New York Times as "one of the places to visit at least once in a lifetime" ! The Gargano area in Puglia certainly needs no introduction, but this bay with the high white cliffs and the white pebble beach in contrast with the blue sea and the green of the Mediterranean scrub that surround it is a postcard from an exotic paradise! An unmissable destination that, seen from the sea, with its two stacks that stand out from the turquoise water, offers us a wonderful spectacle.

3. Beach of the two sisters - Riviera del Conero - Sirolo - Marche.

In the Marche, more precisely in the Conero Riviera , there is this beach with a crystalline sea and a gravel beach and small white pebbles and which owes its name to the two rocks that emerge from the sea. The Spiaggia delle Due Sorelle is located in Sirolo, at the foot of Monte Conero , in a stretch of the Marche coast where there are beautiful beaches and coves, such as the Sassi Neri beach or the Cava Davanzali beach. But the Spiaggia delle Due Sorelle can only be reached from the sea, because the only path that reaches it has been declared unsafe! The option of renting a boat in the Conero to enjoy this spectacle of nature is perfect, here the link with the best offers.

4. Bay of Good Sleep- Palinuro- Salerno- Campania.

Someone defines it as the most beautiful bay in Cilento, but the whole coastal Cilento, we are in the province of Salerno, is among the most beautiful areas of Italy, dotted with stretches of wild coast, small fishing villages and some rare havoc due to urbanization . without rules. The Baia del Buon Dormire is located in Palinuro: a small strip of sand surrounded by rocks and unspoiled nature, a paradise kissed by the sun from dawn to dusk. Renowned for its wonderful colors, it is faced by the Coniglio rock with its singular shape. The Baia del buon Dormire can only be reached by sea and renting a boat in Cilento to enjoy this bay is simple, here the link.

5. Bay of Erchie- Amalfi- Salerno- Campania.

Remaining in the province of Salerno, the Amalfi Coast is certainly known all over the world, a destination every year for tourists from every corner of the earth. But despite the important tourist flows, and in some moments excessive, there are less known and difficult to access places, for this reason they are more peaceful: among these the splendid Bay of Erchie. A bay surmounted by the homonymous village, small and characteristic, with a very clean sea and surrounded by beaches and coves to discover. This bay seen from the ground does not appear in its fullest beauty also because it can only be reached by sea, so it should be known by renting a boat, here the link with the offers.

6. Cala del Bue Marino- San Vito lo Capo- Trapani- Sicily.

We are certainly not discovering San Vito lo Capo, a wonderful town in the province of Trapani which every year is included in the most prestigious rankings of the most beautiful areas in the world. But the Cala del Bue Marino is unmissable, with its white pebbles and the changing sea that goes from intense blue to emerald green, especially at sunset! And if you love snorkeling this is the place for you with the caves on the water that are easy to visit and explore.

Here the link for boat rental offers in San Vito lo Capo.

7. Cala Goloritze - Orosei- Nuoro- Sardinia.

A small corner of unspoiled paradise made of white pebbles, crystal clear sea and the characteristic pinnacle 150 meters high. Cala Goloritze in 1995 was declared a Natural Monument, deservedly because this small cove is one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy. Access from land is really complicated, but it is from the sea that you can enjoy all its beauty: transparent water between rocks, rocky walls, pinnacles and the splendid natural arch.

8. Marasusa - Tropea - Vibo Valentia - Calabria.

We started this little journey in Calabria to discover some of the most beautiful bays in Italy and we conclude in Calabria with a beautiful beach: Marasusa in Tropea. With its clear sea, the white pebble beach and the cliffs that frame it, the beach of Marasusa presents itself in all its beauty. From the sea the show is even more suggestive, embellished by the view of the Benedictine sanctuary of Santa Maria dell'Isola which dominates it from above.

We just have to wish you happy sailing holidays!
