Destination Yachting Vacations
By Tamara Jacobs
Remember back when people used to travel around the world by boat? You didn't have to be an explorer to do so, you just had to be someone in search of adventure, or simply trying to get from A to B. Nowadays, travelling by sea has become somewhat of a luxury, namely if you're lucky enough to be on a yacht. There's something about being in the middle of a body of water and travelling to corners of the world you would never otherwise be able to reach, that is just absolutely magnificent. Here are some corners worth reaching.
The Caribbean is a great place to charter a yacht. The reason for this is that most of its destinations have protected waters that are easy to navigate. Moreover, the marinas are full service and the airports are easy to access. And of course, the waters are turquoise, the weather is fabulous, and the people are full of life. There are few parts of the world that offer such wonderful music, food, and nightlife, whilst also being the perfect beach destination to go and relax.
2. Far East
For those adventurers eager to explore the wonders and mysteries of exotic islands, yachting through the Far East is where you ought to be. It is isolated and absolutely gorgeous. From white sand, hidden beaches, amazing coral reefs, to stones jutting out of emerald waters, this destination has everything to offer. There is so much history and culture in this part of the world, that just floating down its waters makes you feel like you're sailing through the past.
The great thing about yachting through the Med is that there are so many places to visit, each more beautiful then the last. From Turkey to Greece, the coast of Italy, to the South of France, it is easy to explore some of the most culturally rich parts of the world all in one trip. Decide on your route, hoist your sail, and keep your eyes open because you are guaranteed to see some of the most beautiful places on Earth.
4. South Pacific
There's nothing quite as enchanting as sailing through the South Pacific. From coral lagoons, to swaying palms, charming villages, and crystal blue water, this region has a way of enveloping you and making you never want to leave. Dive in the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy the Polynesian cuisine, or watch the Humpback Whales- better yet, do it all!
5. Indian Ocean
You will never again experience the excitement and delight that comes from cruising down the Indian Ocean and seeing all of the incredible wildlife that surrounds it. You are sure to move from vast bodies water into small canals and streams where the only sound is that of mother nature. Enjoy the pristine white sand beaches, snorkel in the reef, camp out in dark coves, or chill out along the waters less travelled.
