5 of the best sailing destinations in Europe

Having a passion for boating often raises a couple of ongoing issues when it comes to deciding which sailing destinations should be chosen when planning a vacation or a trip. We know for sure that this is a fact since often our team faces the same issue.

So, after going through our latest experiences, we decided to share with you five best sailing destinations in Europe that we found mesmerizing during our sailing trips.

1. Italy

One of our perfect trips started in Naples, one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe. From there we headed down the coast to Amalfi and Capri. The gorgeous shores bathed in sunlight were wooing us displaying pretty towns, perfect places for sharing good food and good wine.

2. Turkey

The glistening Turkish Blue Coast represented another one of our exquisite setting sail points. In search for more Mediterranean finery, we set sail at the cosmopolitan beach resort Bodrum. We made our way under the beautiful blue sky Greek Dodecanese islands. The rocky coastlines of this part of Europe are simply marvelous and has some of our favorite bays in which you can swim or snorkel.

3. France

Inevitably we couldn’t have left aside Corsica, that uncovers over 200 beaches. The isolated beach line means tourist masses stay away so there is a traditional feeling and peace and quiet once you drop anchor. The hidden bays and unspoilt beaches are best appreciated directly from the deck of your boat, watching the sunset over the stern.

4. Norway

For a cooler and for experiencing one of the most grand and breathtaking European coast scenery, you can also choose the Norwegian Fjords. These unearthly shapes created by glaciers during the last ice age can provide one of the most dramatic sights which you can enjoy aboard. More than this, the blue and clear waters bathe the green shores displaying one of the most peaceful places you could experience on water.
