4 Beautiful Yacht Chartering Destinations in Europe

 

Europe offers an unrivalled experience featuring beautiful islands and coasts that can be explored using a yacht charter. Some of the biggest seas surrounding the continent are the Barents Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, Baltic Sea, Atlantic Ocean, bays of the Mediterranean, the English Channels, and many others. 


Did you know that the Mediterranean Sea is among the leading tourist destinations in the world? It accounts for a third of the world’s tourism activities, with tourists to the area going to experience the sea, and the twenty-three countries bordering it. Regardless of the country you choose to visit, the Mediterranean climate and the deep blue sea waters make it an ideal yacht charter destination. 


The following are the top four recommended yacht chartering destinations in Europe.

Greece
Greece not only boasts of having more than 3,000 islets and islands, but it also happens to be home to rich culture, stunning natural landscapes, and ancient archaeology. All this combined helps to make it a natural draw for yacht lovers drawn from across the globe. Its islands make it a leading place to charter a yacht.

Some of the islands you should consider exploring include Crete, Mykonos, and Santorini. Visit Mykonos to know just how busy the Greek Islands can be, and to also experience its epic nightlife. Crete is renowned for its ancient archaeological sites dating back thousands of years as well as its exceptional Greek cuisine. Santorini, on the other hand, is home to striking hillside towns, and whitewashed houses.

Malta
Secluded anchorages, quiet fishing villages, and globally renowned beaches are some of the main reasons sailors choose to visit Malta. When taking a yacht charter in Malta, make it a point to explore the port of Valetta. It’s an ancient city where visitors can spend time viewing the stunning architecture, indulging in the local cuisine, and visiting all its historic squares. 

The harbour of Valletta is also home to opera houses, museums, and lots of art galleries. While here, try and visit the sister islands, Comino, and Gozo. The seas around this tiny jewel in the Mediterranean are as clear as those in the Bahamas. Its spectacular landscapes and exceptional cuisine helps to make it a must-visit yacht charter destination.

Canary Islands, Spain
The Canary Islands are located off the African coast and have for decades been a top destination for yacht charter tourists looking to vacation in Europe. It’s an area that’s usually gifted with favourable winds and undisturbed nature making it the go-to place at any time of the year. Its islands are a blend of historical influences, people, and rich culture. The locals are known for their warm hospitality. 

The bustling Tenerife nightlife and the Gran Canaria beaches are some of the things tourists ought to explore. La Palma island is regarded as one of the most breath-taking destinations and is what makes the Canary Islands stand out.

French Riviera
Stunning scenery and magnificent sandy beaches are the images that pop into mind whenever the French Riviera is mentioned. A yacht charter to the French Riviera provides an experience like no other. Get to experience year-round rays of sunshine as you explore cosmopolitan towns such as Monte Carlo, Nice, and Cannes. 

Heading inland allows you to explore the local delicacies and sample the vibrant nightlife in this place. If looking to escape crowds, consider yachting down to Porquerolles and Port Cros. The two areas have a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere, small marinas to dock your chartered yacht, and warm sandy beaches with swaying palm trees.
