Have you ever heard about Ischia? You know Capri for sure, thanks for its VIPs ambassadors (from Lebron James to the beloved Kobe Bryant), but what about Ischia?
Ischia is the largest island off the Gulf of Naples, known from the ancient past for its lush and evocative nature (it’s called the “Green island”) and for its 103 thermal springs.
Follow us and discover your next dream spot, are you ready to add it on your bucket list?
The Greeks arrived on Ischia about 3000 years ago, while the Romans created their thermal baths in the grottos (pumping naturally hot water into them). After the first, just like the second, World War, veterans came here to get a rejuvenating relaxation time.
Today the thermal spas are the most famous attraction of the island. The warm waters come from the Island’s volcanic springs, which are defined as therapeutic for bones, respiratory system and skin.
There are several natural spots you can enjoy on the island for free, and the most celebrated is Sorgeto. Sorgeto is located on the Southern coast, near the Bay of Sant’Angelo, it’s a small breathtaking bay, where you can enjoy several natural pools among the coastal rocks, with temperatures between 30 and 37 degrees.
It can seem strange, but you can bathe here even during the winter months.
Another spot you should visit is called Le Fumarole. Here the sand on the beach can be very hot, so that we suggest to reach this location in the evening. You can have dinner here, cooking in foil your favorite food under the sands (“al cartoccio”). Some tourists also sleep here, under the stars, experiencing a soft and fascinating contact with the hot sands.
The Nitrodi spring is may be the most famous for the locals, but if you want to live the most relaxing vacation, you have to book your stay at Poseidon or Negombo, the two most important “Parco Termale” (which stays for a large complex which includes thermal hot springs, pool and spa treatments) of Ischia.
Poseidon (Gardens) is situated within the village Forio, on the enthralling bay of Citara. It represents the largest thermal park on the island (it extends over 60000 mq), with its 22 pools, while Negombo, in the village of Lacco Ameno, offers a Kneipp itinerary, in a series of hot and cold water pools, the perfect treatment to stimulate circulation.
If you’re starting to plan and dream vacation on Ischia, you will find a large number of hotels and resort which can offer excellent wellness stays, while if you want to make your journey unparalleled, you should book a trip around the island.
We can take you to the island for a tour while you’re living your vacation around the Amalfi Coast, or on Ischia itself. It’s always a good idea to watch and experience an island by the sea!

My wife and I went to Italy for our anniversary with two other best friends couple and the experienc was spectacular. Giuseppe the captain was very professional and respectful. He really knows his business. I would definitely recommend his company; they are the best.
We had booked a full day private boat tour for our 10th wedding anniversary; but due to COVID-19 had to cancel our overseas trip to Italy. From the start the customer service and responsiveness Aldo provided was amazing. Although we haven't yet had a chance to go on the tour - I would already 100% recommend this company to my family and friends purely based on the customer service we have received - from booking to the flexibility they offered when we had to cancel/postpone our trip. This has just furthered solidified we made the right choice in booking with Restart Boat for a once in a lifetime experience touring around Capri - we can't wait to reschedule our trip!
We have had to cancel our trip to Italy and had paid in full for our boat trip to Isle of Capri. On notifying Aldo he did not hesitate to allow us to put our booking forward to next year. We did a lot of research on who to do our capri trip with and are now certain this is the company to go with. Great customer service and a nice human being, can't wait till next year to meet him.
