Fontelina Beach

Capri

Fontelina Beach Club, perched on a rocky outcrop on Capri’s southwest coast, provides a slice of traditional Italy. Accessible only by boat or a daunting cliffside descent, the allure for guests arriving by yacht is palpable.

Founded in 1949, ever since, Fontelina has attracted a wealth of jet-setting A-listers, Bridget Bardot and Sophia Loren to name just two. Yet, its charm lies not in posing and pretence, but in effortless and authentic Italian style.

Alfresco lunches at the straw-thatched restaurant where a menu celebrating the Mediterranean diet delights, with fresh vongole and lobster linguine. Spend an afternoon unwinding beneath the famed blue-and-white parasols, facing the iconic Faraglioni rock formations, a glass of white wine sangria close at hand. 

Still under the stewardship of its founding families, the beach club’s enduring appeal has survived decades of stormy seas. Fontelina, with its rustic origins and celebrated location, is indeed one of the best Mediterranean beach clubs to visit on a yacht charter.

Gigi Ramatuelle

St. Tropez

Gigi Ramatuelle (Gigi’s Saint Tropez address) oozes Italian elegance on the French Riviera. An all-day, all-encompassing escape that ensures barefoot bliss for a family on a luxury yacht charter, or a group of friends in search of a venue to celebrate, this bohemian paradise has something for every discerning guest.

Hidden amidst an ancient ramatuelle pine forest on a stretch of pristine white sand, surrounded by verdant Mediterranean gardens, Gigi is a haven of peace. Cool off in the refreshing Bellini Bar pool, take a moment of pure relaxation in the tranquillity of the wellness area, or unwind under the sun in chic hammocks and intimate day beds.

Gigi’s Italian restaurant merges the magic of northern Italian cuisine with warm Côte d'Azur sand beneath your toes. The setting for orchestral lunchtime soirees and magical evening parties, Gigi Ramatuelle is unquestionably one of the best Mediterranean beach clubs, and a welcome respite from the outside world for all who visit.
