Corfu, Greece

Corfu is an ideal starting point for your sailing holiday in Greece. The island is the northernmost and evergreen Ionian island that is separated from Albania by a strait of fewer than two kilometers. The landscape on Corfu is very varied. The north of Corfu is mountainous and lends itself to beautiful hikes, beautiful bays, and charming villages. The middle of the island of Corfu is hilly, and in the south, there is a low plain with beautiful nature and especially olive trees and cypresses. The Ionian Sea is known as the Caribbean of the Mediterranean. In Corfu, you can rent a bareboat sailing yacht or a sailing yacht with skipper. For the real catamaran sailors, there is also plenty of offer with or without skipper.

Hvar, Croatia

Hvar is very popular with royalty, jet set, and loved by many celebrities. The island is trendy and lively and exudes luxury, but is also a popular destination for tourists looking for peace and an affordable holiday destination. For young people, Hvar is a fantastic place because of the lively nightlife, a real party island!

‘After Beach Parties’ are trendy on the island and a favorite place of many is Club Carpe Diem in the harbor. The parties on the beautiful boulevard are also fantastic — places of entertainment where you must have been: Club Veneranda (a club on top of a mountain near old ruins). From the central square, you walk past Hotel Adriana, and then you’re almost there). Hula Hula (nice bar at sea), 15 min walk from the centrally located square, between the hotel Amfora and Hotel Podstine) and the Kiva Bar (Rock music and tequila are the main ingredients).

There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the city. At the restaurants along the boulevard, you can enjoy the beautiful view. Exclusive restaurants are in narrow alleys near the central square. Tips for restaurants where you can eat well for an excellent price are Vartal, Bonaca, Posteni, Gariful,
Passarola and Robinson. The best beaches are the pebble beach of camping Vira and the beaches of the Pakleni Otoci (Pakleni Islands) with its beautiful bays.

Kornat, Croatia

kornati eilanden

The Kornat park is open all year round so that you can enjoy the fresh air, peace and beautiful scenery whenever you want. The park is the place for sailors who love the harmony in the uninhabited area! Kornat is pre-eminently the location for a Robinson-style sailing holiday. There are 25 restaurants in National Park Kornati, most of which have local dishes on the menu. Fish, seafood specialties and dishes prepared with lamb from Kornat are specialties. Every first Sunday of July is the Catholic holiday of the Madonna of Tarca. There are festivities on the Kornati Islands on this day. The Kornati Cup is a traditional sailboat regatta at the beginning of the tourist season in April. Rent a yacht Croatia price!

Mallorca, Spain

Mallorca is one of the islands that are spread over many miles of open water. This island offers adventurous sailing on open water for experienced sailors. Do you dare to sail along the coast in the sparkling Balearic Sea? Less experienced sailors can make short trips between hidden calas. More experienced crews can go on stronger, longer sailing trips with stronger winds. Rent sailing yachts from Ca’n Pastilla. The villages are initially a fishing village, located on beautiful beaches with azure water to swim in. You can endlessly walk on the beautiful boulevard, and the shops are open until 10 pm. Sufficient dining and a drink there is plenty of choice on one of the many terraces.

Lefkada, Greece

The island Lefkada owes its name to the white beaches and white rocks at Cape Lefkada, but it is one of the greenest islands in Greece. Because of the relatively short sailing distances and weak wind, this is a must for the less experienced sailors. It is best to fly to Aktion National Airport near Preveza.
The White Cape (Lefkada) is already visible far from the sea. At the place where the lighthouse now stands, once stood a temple in honor of Apollo. The cape jump, 236 meters down in the ferocious breakers below, was the Greek equivalent of the witch leap from the Middle Ages. If you survived the drop, you were innocent, if you died justice was done. The Ionian Sea is a significant departure point for renting a sailing yacht, catamaran or motorboat. We rent out some catamarans from Lefkas, but it is mainly monohulls that are most in demand here.
