Lipari Island in the Aeolian Islands, Italy

Italy, yacht charter

Lipari Island

The largest of the Aeolian Islands, an island archipelago tucked away in the southern corner of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Lipari Island was probably more well known in Ancient Times than today.  Having been formed by a series of volcanic eruptions, the island is littered with pumice and obsidian stone, both prized by civilizations for centuries, especially obsidian, which given the sharp glass like aspects of this stone was sought for weaponry, knives and other utensils created for cutting as needed in everyday life.  Today the mining of both stones has been stopped, as the Aeolian Islands, including Lipari are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Stop at Lipari while on a crewed yacht charter and step into yesteryear.

Historic Trinidad, Southern Coast of Cuba

 Historic Trinidad, Cuba

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the town of Trinidad located on the southern coast of Cuba, grew to its glory in the 1800’s during the heyday of the sugar trade.  At one point in 1827, a sugar mill in Trinidad produced just under a million kilos of sugar.  The resulting wealth of sugar plantation owners during this heyday is reflected in the streets in this town through beautiful Spanish colonial mansions, plazas and churches built during this time period.  The reflection of wealth did not stop in the architecture, as those buildings were then filled with beautiful china, crystal, art, painted wall frescos, inlay, and other trappings of a wealth driven society in the Baroque Period.  Outside of town, in the Agabama Valley, are the remains of the sugar mills, while nearby on the coast are beautiful white sand beaches, and lovely crystal clear waters.  Trinidad should not be missed as a port of call on a crewed yacht charter along the southern coast of Cuba.

Lazy Days in Cuba

Havana, Cuba

Where it is summer year around. Cuba is a very large island in the Caribbean Sea with smaller islands included in the country boundaries, all of which are surrounded by beautiful Caribbean waters, undulating with shades of beautiful blues and greens.  A rarely visited island, the waters surrounding are teeming with fish and other marine life and miles of undisturbed coral gardens to snorkel with and swim over.  Also undisturbed are towns and villages inland, with the Capital city of Havana virtually locked in the 1950’s, while south the towns of Cienfuegos and Trinidad, (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), are virtually locked in the 1850’s when the sugar boom evaporated.  Visiting Cuba on a crewed yacht charter does require compliance with certain regulations and the use of Cuban services for certain activities such as scuba diving and fishing.  It is well worth compliance with certain requirements in order to see Cuba as the country is now, before a myriad of changes are sure to occur.
