ABOUT THE MARINA

forio-shot The Marina di Forio offers secure mooring for all types of boat on the west coast of the island of Ischia, from the smallest vessels up to super yachts. It offers all the high quality services you might expect from a marina, whilst respecting the natural environment and beautiful landscape that surrounds it. Its strategic position allows quick and easy access to the Pontine Islands and the Amalfi coast, as well as being a stop-off point for boats heading to the Aeolian Islands and Sicily. Marina di Forio can house over 200 boats between 5 and 30 metres long.
Forio is located between two breathtaking promontories – Punta Caruso and Punta Imperatore, between which lie some of the most beautiful beaches and bays of Ischia, where the water reflects the shimmering green of the vines on the slopes of Mount Epomeo, in a setting of unparalleled beauty.

It is the only district of the island where the historic centre of the town remains intact, with its alleys, churches, lookout towers, stately homes and perfectly preserved monuments, such as the Chiesa del Soccorso, dedicated to Santa Maria della Neve, the Torrione, the Chiesa di San Francesco da Paola, and the Chiesa di San Vito.

The Forio coast, with its constant alternating of inlets and headlands, is suitable for bathing not only on the long, relaxing beaches, but also in more secluded spots. The famous Bay of Sorgeto is within easy reach, a place which, due to its thermal pools, is an attractive location for a night-time swim at any time of year. The nearby Citara beach, endowed with numerous springs and pools of water with varying temperatures and carefully tended gardens, is another delightful landscape to reinvigorate your mind and body. You can witness a breathtaking panorama in the glow of a romantic sunset from the port’s jetty.
This magnificent natural heritage and landscape is further enhanced and protected by the fact that the region is part of the Regno di Nettuno Protected Marine Area, established in 2007 around the islands of Ischia, Procida and Vivara.
