The 1,000 or more islands of Croatia’s famous Dalmatian Coast offer gentle cruising and island hopping in the calm, clear waters of the Adriatic. More experienced sailors can enjoy longer spells out on the open ocean and take part in regattas and other events, while occasional strong mistral winds provide more challenging conditions for those who relish the sensation of speed and the feel of blown spray.
A Croatian sailing holiday allows you to experience a Mediterranean paradise of turquoise seas, quiet, colourful islands and picturesque port towns steeped in history, delicious fresh seafood and friendly, welcoming locals. Unspoilt coves and dramatic waterfalls, ancient forts and lush, green forests all lie in wait along the country’s celebrated Dalmatian Coast.
3. Italian Riviera
One of the Phlegraean Islands found along Italy’s beautiful Sorrentine Peninsula, Procida is a scenic destination and the start of your sailing holiday in one of Italy’s most attractive, arresting regions.
Procida has been a desirable holiday destination since ancient times, when members of Rome’s wealthy patrician elite would flock to the island to spend their leisure time in the sun and sea of this Tyrrhenian gem. Today, Procida wears its rich history on its sleeve. The Terra Murata Fort stands on the island’s highest point, overlooking a picturesque Mediterranean town of multi-coloured, multi-tiered construction that has inspired numerous novels and films.
Set sail from Procida to discover the Phlegraean and Pontine islands, and Italy’s famous Amalfi Coast. A couple of miles across the Gulf of Naples lies Naples itself — a buzzing metropolis listed among the world’s oldest cities and famously the birthplace of pizza. Brooding Mount Vesuvius and the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum are a short sail away, and beyond is Sorrento: the start of the Amalfi Coast.
2. French Riviera
Great food, great wine, a warm and pleasant climate and a relaxed pace of life — that’s what the Mediterranean means to millions of annual visitors. For sailors, the Med offers clear blue waters ideal for swimming and snorkelling, calm conditions and occasional mistral winds that up the ante for those in search of speed and spray.
1. Greek Islands
With more than 8,000 miles of coastline and over 2,000 islands to discover, the only way to experience Greece is by boat. A Greek sailing holiday allows you to explore the ruins of Ancient Greece, sample some traditional mezé at friendly waterside tavernas and stop off at some of the country’s famous party islands for the best nightlife in the Med.
Take the helm of a beautiful chartered yacht and experience prolonged periods of open water sailing as you strike out for the scattered Saronic and Cycladic Islands, or enjoy easy line-of-sight exploration through the famous Heptanese Islands off Greece’s west coast.
