City break in Procida Island. Active leisure ideas for Procida Island - attractions, recreation and nightlife

Holidays on Procida suggests not only an inspection of a variety of cultural attractions but also long walks around the island. Here you can enjoy a magnificent and almost untouched nature – there are not so many tourists on the island, and the residents, who were engaged in fishing, preferred not to interfere in the life of plants and animals for centuries. You can walk along Procida – the views here are fantastic, and there are a lot of routes for pedestrians.
The abbey of St. Michael the Archangel is certainly one of the main attractions of Procida. This is the oldest building on the island, built in the 7th century by four Benedictine monks. … Open
However, if you want, you can rent a motorbike, bicycle, car or drive along the roads of the island by public transport. In order to rent a car, you need international rights. Although, they can give you a car, even if you only have a national driving license, but without an international license there is a big risk of getting a fine of no less than 300 euros. Please note that some of the petrol stations here do not accept foreign bank cards.
Be sure to visit the neighboring Vivara. You don’t even need to float anywhere – there is the most common bridge between the islands. Vivara is a reserved territory, and, therefore, completely uninhabited. Here in a variety of nests live different birds, including very rare species. Vivara is visited not only by nature admirers and novice ornithologists but also by the prominent scientists from different countries. Rare, sometimes even unique, flowers that attract botanists from around the world, grow on this protected island. Therefore it is worth spending another day walking around the island for the sake of intimate communication with untouched nature. Copyright
Choice of hotels on Procida is well worthy, despite its modest size. Each local hotel has its own unique features. One of the most prestigious hotels on the island is Albergo La Vigna … Open
Experienced divers are advised to dive next to Vivara. Due to its uninhabited nature, the underwater world is also intact. For example, in sea caves, you can easily see an octopus or swallow fish. However, you can dive not only at Vivara or in the water area of Procida. You can go to Cape Companello, whose coastal waters are protected by the state because of the large variety of flora and fauna, or to the Vervece rock. At the bottom of the water, there is a statue of Madonna. Once a year they go down here during the ritual of the commemoration of those who died in the sea.
No desire to mess with all the diving equipment? Then you can try yourself in snorkeling. This type of recreation does not require preparation, and flippers and a mask with a tube can be bought or rented on the island. There is an opportunity to surf and learn how to operate a yacht. Fans of fishing should try to fish from the shore or hire a boat and go out into the open sea. Local people, whose fates are closely connected with fish and the sea, can tell a lot of the subtleties of local fisheries.
If you are looking for something colorful, you can always buy one of the variants of the carnival mask. Though Procida is not Venice, nevertheless, masks can be found in large numbers here, … Open
Actually, you should ride on the boat around the island in any case, even if you are absolutely indifferent to fishing and other marine sports. Procida looks just marvelous from the sea. The views of both the local nature, and the coastline, and the port, and the villages during the sea excursion will be unforgettable. If you want, you can not only swim around Procida but also go to the neighboring islands.
If you like beach holidays and prefer beaches with golden sand, then you should go to the western part of the island. It is there that Lido di Procida is located. However, you can relax on the beach near Corricella, and on Pozzo Vecchio and Silurenza. Fans of active nightlife should keep close to the busy beaches: most of the parties that are held here during the holiday season, take place on the beach. In general, there are bars and restaurants in Sancho Catolico, but in summer you can hang out there.
