Sailing catamaran charter: the best routes in the Mediterranean

If you are looking for interesting yachting itineraries, the Mediterranean Sea offers plenty of options for your holiday. This region will surprise you with its rich nature and allow you to relax in complete silence, which is so lacking in everyday life. 

#1. Sailing catamaran cruise along the luxury coast of Monaco

A holiday in Monaco is an amazing journey through a world of luxury and the rich history of the Principality. There is a harmonious blend of classical and modern architecture and the local gastronomy, which perfectly combines Monegasque tradition and fusion, will delight even the most discerning gourmet.

Monaco is one of the best places for shopping. World famous brand boutiques can be found practically at every turn. The Principality is ideal for travelling in all seasons, with over 300 days of sunshine per year.

Walking is the best way to discover Monaco, its heritage and culture. The many public lifts and escalators make it possible to reach any area in a few minutes. You can cross Monaco from east to west in just 45 minutes... The notion of "walking distance" acquires its true meaning here!

#2. French Riviera cruise

The route around the Côte d'Azur is said to be the best destination for a sailing trip in a catamaran in France. The Côte d'Azur offers stunning French scenery, numerous national parks, and famous landmarks such as Antibes, Cannes, Nice, and Saint-Tropez.

Although these resorts are full of tourists hoping to see celebrities, a catamaran sailing tour on the Porquerolles (Île de Porquerolles) can reveal another side of the French Riviera.

#3. Journey to the Porquerolles Island, France

Porquerolles Island is a must-see tourist spot. Not only does this island offer spectacular scenery and beautiful beaches, but it also tells an impressive story.

Over the centuries, the island has welcomed countless cultures. It has been privately owned by wealthy French families for years, passing from one family to another at different periods in history. During Napoleon's time, several defensive structures were built on Porquerolles Island, which can still be visited today. Today the island is part of Port Cros National Park.

The Porquerolles is the largest island of Yerre, where the air is filled with the delicate scent of eucalyptus and pine trees. With its unspoilt nature and stunning scenery, the island captures the hearts of the most spoilt traveller. Best of all, there are no cars on the island. It is the perfect holiday destination for those who want to enjoy a trip along the coast of the French Riviera.

#4. Cannes: What's the first thing to see in Cannes?

La Croisette. Deciding to walk along this landmark in Cannes will eventually lead you to the western part of the city. The promenade connecting the new and old ports is about 3 km long.

Along the way you will see plastic blue chairs placed under sprawling pine trees, they are set up for travellers to rest on. Your walk will be set against the backdrop of the beautiful sandy beach of the Côte d'Azur.

Old Harbour. The date of construction of the marina is 1838. The chic yachts of the billionaires are flanked by the small fishing boats that people still put out to sea to fish.

Every autumn, the Royal Regatta, the most famous yachting competition, is held here. This is a time of year when hotels in Cannes are booked by visitors from all over the world. A boat trip to the Lérins Islands is available from the local jetty. The local jetty is also of tourist interest.

The Avenue of Stars in Cannes. When you list the main attractions in Cannes in a nutshell, you can't help but think of this pathway, which has been planted with palm trees. The Alley is a walkway with the handprints of famous people made in metal.

#5. The old town of Antibes, France

Antibes is located not far from Nice, it is a beautiful old town and a famous beach resort. Medieval streets, an ancient fortress and the azure coast are the first associations that describe this beautiful and colourful town. The main symbol of Antibes is Fort Carré, on the west side.

#6. To Saint-Tropez by sailing catamaran

Saint-Tropez is the most famous seaside resort in Europe and one of the jewels of the French Côte d'Azur. It is a fishing village located 76 km from Cannes, close to Frejus and Saint Raphael. Pastel-coloured cottages overlook the picturesque promenade lined with luxury yachts.

The old fortress of Saint-Tropez, now the Maritime Museum, towers above the old town. A respectable rich crowd strolls along the neat promenade, and the whole town gives the impression of being very well maintained and tidy.

#7. Boat trip along the gorgeous coastline of Nice, Côte d'Azur

A long-awaited holiday makes you want everything at once. To avoid having to compromise between museums and the beach, head to Nice. Côte d'Azur resort offers a morning stroll along the promenade, an afternoon of sunbathing by the sea, lunch in the elegant streets of the old town, then a visit to a museum and a dinner in a chic restaurant.

#8. To Corsica by sailing catamaran

Visit the Calanche di Piana (Calanques) National Park, whose porphyry cliffs are coloured in a variety of reddish hues. Seagulls, cormorants, eagles soar over the park's clear waters... The islands and grottoes of this area, as well as the village of Piyana, are one of the most picturesque settlements in France. They are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

#9. Italy sailing routes

Travelling along the Italian coast, you'll want to stop at every harbour. There is hardly anything as stunning as the Flegreian Islands, the Amalfi Coast, the Pontine Islands, the archipelago of La Maddalena or the Aeolian Islands.

Italy is extremely popular with tourists from all over the world as it is the birthplace of one of the greatest civilisations in human history. Today there are many sailing tours across Italy aimed at discovering the culture and traditions of this country. But we have chosen for you the best sailing itineraries in Italy.

For example, Sardinia. In our itinerary you can explore the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea in a few days on a sailing catamaran. It's home to medieval villages and monuments. And if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle, head to the volcanic islands near Sicily.

#10. A boat trip to Naples, Italy

Naples and its surroundings are surprisingly rich in sites, monuments and natural areas. Naples is rightly famous as the largest capital and tourist centre of southern Italy. Every year, Naples is visited by many tourists, both European and non-European. The historic centre of Naples is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

"It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and its modern layout retains elements of its rich history. Its network of streets, the richness of its buildings, belonging to different epochs, without doubt, create a value that has no equal". (UNESCO)

#11. Sea journey to the town of Capri, Italy

Capri is a "blue" island located in the Bay of Naples. It's the perfect destination for a chic, expensive holiday. Capri is close to Naples and Sorrento. It is a very advantageous geographical location. Capri is the ideal destination for a day or a week holiday.

Capri is a rocky island. You won't find big sandy beaches here, but there are plenty of rocky ledges and platforms from which to dive. The water here is surprisingly clear, blue-green in colour, through which you can see the seabed. Capri has both public and private beaches equipped with umbrellas and showers, with numerous cafes and restaurants.

#12. A boat trip to the famous Italian town of Portofino

Portofino's coastline offers beautiful scenery and beaches, a rocky coastline, crystal clear seawater, and the opportunity for seclusion and quiet that attracts famous artists, financiers, and politicians. Madonna, Sharon Stone, Sylvester Stallone, Demi Moore, George Clooney are frequent visitors here. And in former times Sigmund Freud, Ernest Hemingway and Guy de Maupassant were among the visitors.

#13.  Mediterranean cruise itinerary to Sicily

Away from the colourful cities, Sicily's ancient villages give way to sandy beaches and rocky coves. Every beach in Sicily is a swimmers' and divers' dream. And the island's varied landscape makes it ideal for hiking. You can walk along the coast and in the shadow of a volcano, or just relax wonderfully on one of the island's picturesque beaches.

#14. Сruise to Sardinia 

Sardinia is often referred to as the little paradise in the heart of the Mediterranean. Sardinia's coastline and its white-sand beaches have become a symbol of the island, although it hides quite a few nooks and crannies and countless surprises worth seeing. Here are a few must-see places in Sardinia": Kia Beach, Nurag Barumini, La Maddalena Archipelago, Su Gorroppu Gorge, Neptune's Grottoes and Carloforte.

#15. A scenic route to Greece

To explore Greece, you have to learn to stay calm because the countless islands, bays and lagoons excite and captivate the imagination. Among them are the Dodecanese, Crete, Rhodes and Kos.

The Dodecanese Islands form just a tiny constellation in the universe of the Greek archipelago. When travelling by catamaran, be sure to visit the Blue Caves and Navajo Beach. There are many well-equipped marinas in Greece, such as Athens, Santorini and Milos, where you can enjoy a rich history and culture.

#16. Dodecanese archipelago

The Dodecanese Archipelago, meaning "twelve islands" in Greek, comprises the most famous Greek islands. With a history that goes back centuries, endless natural beauty and a unique culture, they are the most popular holiday destinations. Not only are the islands internationally famous, but travellers from all over the world come every year to experience the paradise of the Aegean Sea.

Each island is a different story. Every port is an image of unparalleled beauty. Each city is a dream shore under a deep blue sky.
