Boating and sailing vacations are a wonderful form of luxury travel. They combine relaxation, the great outdoors, time in nature and -- depending on which craft you choose -- it can be as opulent as you wish, or more of a "simple pleasure".
With a multitude of destinations to choose from, this is one of those delightful dilemmas of all time.
With an abundance of yachts available for hire, and different types of craft on offer, you may prefer a motor yacht, a catamaran, sailboat, a gulet, or even a houseboat. Location and time of year may help to define the choice.
Some of the top 10 most popular spots for yacht charters are the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the Seychelles, and the Canary Islands. But this is to name just a few options.
Caribbean sailing charters are a popular choice for both honeymooners and family vacations alike. I have friends who sail the Caribbean every year with their grown-up children. They come together from the 4 corners of the globe, to enjoy a relaxing holiday in these blue-green waters.
Antigua and Barbuda... Martinique... the British Virgin Islands... each one a superb sailing holiday destination.
A Florida Keys sailing vacation is an ideal way to combine relaxation with a touch of adventure as well. Typical spots to launch from are Miami, Palm Beach or Fort Lauderdale. In fact, Miami yacht charters are one of the most popular in this part of the world.

Before or after you sail, you may like to spend a few days in Athens, visit ancient ruins and soak up the vibe of this bustling city. Why not take in a sound-and-light show at the Parthenon by night.
Professional chefs are available for hire, wherever your yacht may be sailing. This is a chance to be totally pampered, without a worry of "what's for dinner". All you do is relax and enjoy the scenery, the relaxation, bathing in warm seas, and the various ports of call you choose to make along the way
