Yacht Charter Punta Ala

Italy Punta Ala
Starting out in the 70s with major investments in the tourism industry, Punta Ala is today one of the best yacht charter Italy locations in Tuscany. The proximity to the island of Elba makes it a perfect base to explore the neighboring region and get a taste of the Italian coastline.

General Info
With its position on a dramatic promontory overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, it seems the small settlement of Punta Ala, formely known as Punta Troia, was destined to become a Yacht Charter resort, on the Italian Tuscan coast.

Just kilometers from the town of Castiglione (officially, Punta Ala is a part of it), the small resort started its ascension on the Yacht Charter tourist maps in the early 70s when investments were made to the local infrastructure and sailing was more widely practiced. The name means “Wing Point” and it was given due to the shape of the promontory it sits on.

Travel & Arrival
There are two ways you can get to Punta Ala, either by land or by water. By land would have to be the more sensible choice for any Yacht Charter party since there’s only one road leading into town and one leading out. The way to get here is to arrive in the closest bigger city, Castiglione and then drive via the SS158 to Punta Ala.

Though the port is relatively new, being completed after the 1970s, it’s still not big enough to attract regular ferry rides, so it only caters for Yacht Charter boats at the moment, or privately owned boats.

Avant & Apres Sail
Seeing as it’s more of a modern settlement, there aren’t that many historical landmarks to be seen. The only ones worth mentioning are the Hidalgo tower which overlooks the modern town and offers the intrepid Yacht Charter explorer a nice view of the whole region towards Elba island, Il Castello de Punta Ala built in the 16th century by the Medici for protection from the pirates and the Appiani tower which had the same purpose.

The food served in local restaurants is quintessentially Italian, though some of the hotel restaurants do serve international dishes too. From pasta to pizza and other Italian delicacies, the Yacht Charter gourmet won’t go hungry while visiting here.

Events & Actions
Aside from the pleasant weather, the lovely beaches and the remote location, Punta Ala is known for its sailing pedigree, especially for its sailing regattas which are organized by the “Punta Ala Yacht Club” and which are famous on this part of the Italian coast. With a well equipped marina and lots of fine sailing conditions you’ll find that this particular stretch of the coast is a Yacht Charter paradise.

Other activityes can include day trips to either neighboring Castiglione or the Elba island, famous as the place where Napoleon spent the last days of his life in exile but also for the wonderful rugged landscape.
