Luxury Yacht Destinations: Our Top Three
Owners of luxury yachts have plenty of destinations to choose from. Here we look at three of the very best places to sail...
The French Riviera
Perhaps the most classic, and certainly the most glamorous, of yachting destinations is the French Riviera. From the bustling, cosmopolitan excitement of Monte Carlo to the unspoiled, breathtaking beauty of Port-Cros, the French Riviera has it all. The crystal-blue Mediterranean provides some of the best sailing waters in the world and there is plenty on land to keep you entertained too, particularly the famous white sand beaches of Nice and the celebrity playground that is Cannes.
There are thousands of islands to discover in Greece, making it a seafarer's paradise that has attracted sailors for millennia. Many of the islands are uninhabited and are thus just begging to be explored; in contrast, islands such as Mykonos are densely populated global tourist destinations. Other must-visit islands include Crete, the largest Greek island, and Santorini, renowned for its dramatic and spectacular sunsets.
Palm Beach, Florida
With a strong seaside and maritime heritage, Palm Beach is home to the renowned Palm Beach Yacht Club and Marina which, established in 1890, is the oldest business in the city. Those who prefer a leisurely, scenic sailing experience can enjoy the Intracoastal Waterway that cuts between the city and its barrier islands while the more adventurous sailor can head out onto the beautiful open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The islands of the Bahamas are just one day's sail away from Palm Beach.
