The town is renowned for its deep and protected harbours which provide access for sailing tourists who choose yacht charter here.
This beautiful region of Italy is referred to as the Maremma, and if you love natural surroundings a yacht charter could be the perfect fit for you. The beautiful landscapes of green mountains which lead down to the Mediterranean Sea combine with the many natural parks such as the Boschi del Monte d’Alma and the Oasi Padule e Costiera di Scarlino, popular for its wildlife and bird reserve.
