The most beautiful sailing regions in the Mediterranean

When you think of sailing in Europe, the Croatian islands probably come to mind first. A real sailing boom has developed here in recent years. But there are also many beautiful spots on the Mediterranean Sea to enjoy your holiday on a sailing yacht to the fullest. We have taken a look at the most beautiful sailing destinations in the Mediterranean and created a small overview.

Croatia

Croatia scores with sailing enthusiasts with more than 1,000 islands and an impressive coastal landscape. No wonder that every year more and more tourists visit Croatia to rent a yacht, e.g. from the Europe-wide provider PCO-Yachting and enjoy a sailing experience. Split, the second largest city in the country, is an ideal starting point for a yacht trip. Some of the most popular and well-known islands Hvar, Brač and Korčula are just a short day trip away.

Travel around Corsica’s neighboring island with your sailing yacht. There are some highlights to explore: Sardinia has many natural beaches scattered all over the island. Among the most beautiful are, for example, the bay of Capriccioli or the bay of Cava Spalmatore. Cala Luna and Cala Mariolu are among the absolute beauties of the island and impress with their rock formations, caves and a magnificent underwater world. An unforgettable sight is the Neptune Grotto with its numerous limestone formations. Visit the capital Cagliari and travel to the dreamlike archipelago of La Maddalena.

Not only Croatia offers a variety of beautiful islands. In Greece , too, many countless islands can be explored by sailing ship. Early in history, the port of Rhodes was known far beyond the country’s borders due to the ancient wonder of the world “Colossus of Rhodes”. Thus, Rhodes is a good starting point to explore the islands of the Dodecanese. In addition to Rhodes, Kos, Karpathos and Kalymnos are among the most famous islands of the group.

If you’d rather spend a few days in Greece’s capital Athens before your sailing holiday, explore the Cyclades. Enjoy the crystal clear waters and dreamy bays. A total of 27 Cyclades islands are waiting to be visited. Among the most famous islands are Mykonos, Naxos and Santorini. Also very popular with sailors is the third largest Cycladic island of Paros and the unofficial capital Syros.

Majorca / Balearic Islands

The Germans’ favourite island is not only worth a trip on land. The starting point of your journey is the island’s capital Palma – not only because of its proximity to the airport. From there you will explore the more than 500 kilometres of coastline of the Balearic island with the highlights of Cap Formentor in the north as well as the beautiful harbours of Alcudia, Cala d’Or, Pollença and the natural harbour of Porto Petro. Puerto Portal, one of the most famous marinas in Mallorca, is located near Andratx, which is particularly popular with golfers.

Holidaymakers who have a little more time can extend their trip to the neighbouring islands of Menorca, the natural paradise of Cabrere, Ibiza and Formentera. Formentera in particular scores with Caribbean-style beaches. However, these should be visited outside the high season, otherwise they are unfortunately often very crowded.

Due to the moderate climatic conditions, the Balearic Islands are suitable for beginners as well as experienced sailors.
