Sailing is active, adventurous, fun, and environmentally friendly, but it is also a great way to travel and see the world. Here are 5 reasons why sailing is the best way to travel:
1. Beaches all to yourself
You can explore hidden beaches and coves and find empty beaches when sailing. You’ll feel like your own private beach. Here are the top four hidden beaches of Europe:
- Zlatni Rat Beach, Croatia
- Isola Bella Beach, Italy
- Los Canos de Meca, Spain
- Scopello Beach, Sicili
2. Sailing gives you the freedom to explore
Sailing allows you to explore places you usually wouldn’t see; for example, you can discover small beautiful islands.
3. Completely avoid tourist
Since you are out in the open waters, you have so much time to yourself, and you can totally avoid the crowds and all of the tourists. You also have the opportunity to go to islands that are harder to reach for tourists; this will make your trip so much more special.
4. Say goodbye to overpriced hotels
You will have the luxury of spending the night in a popular destination while avoiding the overpriced hotel room or Airbnb. And the best part is? You still have the best ocean view.
5. Cost Effective
Think about your budget for a holiday. You usually have to account for food, drinks, and transportation. And all of those things together can add up very quickly. However, when you are on a boat, it really cuts costs. You can do grocery shopping in the local grocery stores and markets so you can make your own food and drinks on the ship. Also, the sailboat is your own personal taxi that will take you wherever you need to go, whenever you need it, so you do not need to budget for flights, taxis, busses, etc.
These are just some of the main reasons why sailing is the best way to travel, but there are so many more. Try it and find out for yourself; trust me, once you start sailing to travel, you will never want to go back.
