Acciaroli harbour

Acciaroli is a small harbour in Campania on the Tyrrhenian coast of Italy, about eight miles SE of Punta Licosa. Its main claim to fame is as a reputed occasional holiday retreat for the writer Ernest Hemingway in the years following World War II. The three pontoons in its small and busy harbour are operated by three separate concessionaires. Smaller yachts of up to 15 metres may find a berth here or on one of the quays. Shelter is good here from every direction except S.

Winds along the Tyrrhenian Coast of Italy are generally light in the summer months. The most notable feature is a SW sea breeze that kicks in in late morning and blows at little more than Force 2 - 4 until the evening. Thundery conditions are not infrequent during early Spring and Autumn, and associated winds can sometimes reach gale force and kick up a substantial sea. In winter, gales can blow from both NW and S and entry to and exit from some of the harbours along the coast can become hazardous.

Sources for weather information:

  • There is a continuous (computerized voice) weather forecast on VHF 68 - first in Italian and then followed with an English translation
  • The same forecast is given in Italian and English on VHF coastal stations following a notification on channel 16
  • Navtex weather forecasts are broadcast from stations at La Garde (Toulon), Roma and Cagliari (Sardinia)

Add here VHF channel for the coastguard, harbor masters. etc.

Beware of the shallows in the approaches. One shoal patch is 350 metres SSE of the harbour entrance, the other 600 metres SE of the entrance. Approach is best made from NW, keeping close to the harbour breakwater and turning in at the last minute. A white statue of the Madonna on the end of the breakwater is conspicuous.


There are a total of 300 berths in the harbour, on the quays and pontoons, of which 40 are ostensibly for yachts in transit. Berth wherever there is space on the quays or on one of the three pontoons. Maximum length 15 metres. Depths in the harbour range from 2.5 to 5.0 metres, the shallower water being at the northern end. Shelter in the harbour is moderately good in settled weather, but strong S/SE winds send in a swell.

June 2015 - we used the Transit berth near the outer end of the breakwater, free for 2 days. However, if you want to hook up to power and water, then it is Euro 50 (they base the charge on how long you are, so it's a form of berthing fee). --Hogesinwa
