Yacht Charters Stromboli

With a grand backdrop of Mount Stromboli—one of only three active volcanoes in Italy—Stromboli is one for nature lovers and adventurers. The black-sand beaches and crystal clear waters make for the perfect yacht charter destination, and there are plenty of sheltered bays to anchor up in. For those who want to explore the island, there are a number of hiking trails that lead up to the crater of Mount Stromboli. Be sure to bring your camera, as the views from the top are simply stunning. If a vacation spent on the water is more your speed, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. Swimming, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding are all popular for those on a yacht charter in Stromboli. And you can have all of these included on board, easy at hand.


The best time to charter a yacht in Stromboli is between May and September when the weather is warm and sunny. Temperatures during this period sit between 21-27°C. The warmer and busier months are June, July and August. This is the peak season, where prices will be higher, and bookings are a must.

If you're looking to avoid the crowds, consider chartering a yacht in Stromboli during the shoulder season months of May and September. The weather is still lovely during these times, and you may find it easier to get bookings.

For an extra special boat charter in Stromboli, consider visiting during one of the island's cultural events. The most well-known is the Festival of the Saint, which takes place each July in honour of Saint Bartholomew. This festival is a week-long celebration full of fun activities, from processions and fireworks to concerts and feasts.

In March, you can attend the Feast of the Annunciation. August brings with it the Wine Festival, and carb-lovers will be in heaven during the Bread Festival in October. During these times, the streets of Stromboli come alive with music, dancing, and food.

Activities & Experiences

While many visitors on a luxury yacht charter in Stromboli will do a quick visit here and the islands nearby, we strongly recommend taking some time to absorb what Stromboli has to offer. From fine dining to volcanic sand beaches and a thriving nightlife, Stromboli is a multi-faceted island with something for everyone.

Punta Lena is the perfect fine dining experience to work into your private yacht charter in Stromboli. This Michelin-starred restaurant is run by husband-and-wife team Roberto and Cristina Bava. The menu changes daily, depending on what is freshest, and the wine list is nothing short of awe-inspiring. With only 10 tables, reservations are essential.

One of the best things to do in Stromboli is to hike to the top of its active volcano, Mount Stromboli. This is not a hike for beginners—it requires two hours and a medium level of fitness—but the views from the top are well worth the effort. If you're feeling especially adventurous, you can hike all the way to the crater and peer into its bubbling lava. Just be sure to follow the signs and stay on the marked path, as it can be dangerous to stray off-course.

Ficogrande beach is one of the most unique beaches in the world, thanks to its black volcanic sand. This secluded beach is only accessible by boat, making it the perfect spot to relax and soak up the sun in peace. If you're feeling active, there are plenty of rocks to climb and explore, or you can go for a swim in the clear blue waters. This is also the perfect place to pull out those water toys and float atop the Mediterannean.

Dance the night away at La Cantina del Leone

La Cantina del Leone is the place to be if you're looking for a lively night out on your Stromboli yacht charter. This local hot spot is known for its great music and even better cocktails. If you're in the mood to dance, head to the upstairs nightclub, where you can boogie until the early hours of the morning.

While Stromboli is the main attraction in this area, it would be a shame to miss out on the rest of the Aeolian Islands during your yacht charter. These seven islands—Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi, Panarea, and Strombolicchio—are all within easy reach of each other. If you have the time, it would be remiss to miss the chance to see a few.
