What’s more, the clauses in your contract will protect you should lockdowns and travel restrictions prevent you from commencing your charter.

Spain & the Balearic Islands

From bustling cities to equally thriving wildernesses, Spain has it all: Hike the trails and visit the vineyards in the Narbonnaise en Méditerranée Natural Regional Park, or head south to the Salvador Dali House Museum in Port Lligat. Gaudi, meanwhile, has left behind a riot of colour in Barcelona and visitors will easily fill the day with shopping, Michelin-quality dining and culture.

The Balearic Islands needs no introduction, made famous – or infamous – as one of the party capitals of the Western Mediterranean. Join the celebrations in the summer sunshine of host your own private bash onboard dockside or in an anchorage away from prying eyes.

Both Formentera and the Cabrera National Park have wonderful beaches for sunbathing and playing on the water toys, and the latter location has great hikes and ruins to spot along the way.

Palma is filled with impressive architecture spanning the centuries, and on Menorca there is a hedonistic mix of artistry and luxury amongst the galleries and cliff-side clubs such as Cova d’en Xoroi.

France

The French Riviera – also called the Cote d’Azur – stretches from Cassis to the west up to the principality of Monaco to the east. Although this stretch of picturesque coastline can be incorporated into a Balearic Islands or Italian Riviera charter, it stands on its own merits, which include magnificent galleries and museums to famous artists like Picasso in Antibes and Matisse in Nice. Shopping opportunities abound, as do chances to dine on Michelin-star quality cuisine, should you ever want a change from your on board chef’s marvellous creations.

Outdoor enthusiasts will cherish the time spent on Iles d’Hyeres, where nature is preserved, there a plenty of hiking trails and quaint villages to encounter along the way. Corsica has more beaches than it is possible to visit in a single season, and you can find the perfect sheltered place to spend an afternoon with the water toys, or anchor overnight for barbeques, dinners by candlelight and parties in the moonlight.

Italy

Gorgeous locations, amazing food, rich culture and high fashion… need we say any more? Italy practically sells itself as a destination, offering something for everyone and leaving the opportunity wide open for something new each day.

The Italian Riviera is a desirable destination for many, combining luxury shopping opportunities at Forte dei Marmi with the scenic beauty of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Cinque Terre and the Tuscan Archipelago.

Head to Naples and the Amalfi Coast for the dramatic sights of Mount Vesuvius towering over the metropolis, filled with cultural delights both old and new just waiting to be discovered. Take a day trip to Pompeii, cruise along the coast to Amalfi and clifftop Ravello, and visit Capri for the stunning Blue and Green Grottoes, the Gardens of Augustine, boutique shopping, a rich cafe culture and so much more.

Croatia

This spectacular Eastern Mediterranean charter ground is highly prized amongst Scuba divers for its numerous wrecks, reefs and caves flourishing with wildlife. Snorkelers don’t need to venture far from the shores either, and whether you’re cruising along the Istrian Peninsula or surrounded by the islands of the Dalmatian Coast, there are plenty of opportunities to fish for your dinner and play about all day with the water toys. Luxury yachts can cruise from Venice and Slovenia to include treats from these destinations into your Adriatic Sea experience.

Golden sand beaches are common, and destinations like Pula are replete with amazing historic treasures: The Old Town alone has the Temple of Augustus, Agrippina’s House, the galleries in the extensive underground tunnels ‘Zerostrasse’ and the Contemporary Art Museum of Istria.

Include Dubrovnik into your Dalmatian Coast itinerary to see some of the magnificent locations that were used in the Game of Thrones TV series, and learn about the city’s own rich history on a cultural tour. Relax under the summer sun amongst the islands of the Kornati National Park, or cruise south to experience the majesty of Montenegro and the Bay of Kotor.

Greece

The clear blue water and white cliffs of Corfu have sealed the reputation of the Ionian Islands, where yacht charters also go for Navagio Beach and its famed shipwreck on Zakynthos, not forgetting Myrtos Beach and Melissani Cave on Kefalonia.

Amongst the Dodecanese Islands, Lipsi is an absolutely stunning landscape of slanting cliffs disappearing into white sand beaches that in turn sink into a brilliant blue sea. Kalymnos entices rock climbers and Scuba divers to its shores, whilst Nysiros has a volcanic ‘lunar landscape’, hiking trails and hot springs, and Rhodes is a prime destination for its story-rich ruins: The entire Old Town has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Turkey

The Turkish Riviera is relatively unknown to the western world but has some absolutely magnificent locations for Scuba diving and water sports around Kas, with wreck dives, swim-throughs and stunning reefs to entice visitors into the water again and again. On land, both Bodrum and Fethiye have amazing museums and landmarks worth viewing, and there are plenty of shopping opportunities in the markets and shopping centres.
