From Marina La Cala in Palermo you can glide along the coast of Sicily on a sailboat and enjoy the sea in the Aeolian Islands from your sailboat.
Book a sailing holiday in Palermo from Marina La Cala, located at the southern end of the commercial harbor, just a ten-minute walk from the city center. With the airport, just 30 km away, Palermo -- on the North coast of Sicily -- is a great departure spot to rent a sailboat and sail the western side of the island, as well as the Egadi Archipelago. For those eager to explore the Aeolian Islands, keep in mind that they are about a 10-hour sail away.
This base presents some advantages, such as having the magnificent center of Palermo at your doorstep, and some disadvantages, such as being in a commercial harbor. Be assured, however, that when booking a boat and departing from Palermo towards the Egadi islands you will find lots of lovely inlets, as well as the Riserva dello Zingaro Natural Park, which is a must-see. This is also the nearest base to Ustica. Notwithstanding the lack of a formal reception area (there’s a small kiosk on the docks with chairs), our Sailogy's certified charter boat operator here, keeps striving to provide customers with improved service, and the Sailogy Sail Hunter would recommend Palermo as a safe and secure base curious about Sicily -- a truly magical place.
The nearby bases are the Porto di Trapani and the base of Marina di Portorosa
