Get to the best beaches accessible only by your charter yacht

Far from the tourist crowds, yacht charter guests have the liberty of being able to cruise from one anchorage to another at liberty, getting to islands and bays only accessible by yacht.

Family charter

Your dream holiday on a luxury charter yacht is all about relaxation ... the sun is hot, the skies are blue, the sea is warm and the beaches are plentiful and postcard-perfect.


Your luxury charter is your passport to paradise on days you wish to recline on secluded sandy beaches or wallow in the shallows of largely uninhabited coves.


Here are Luxury Charter Group's pick of just a few sensational, secluded beaches accessible only by boat. For more suggestions and all the expert advice on charter in any one of the world's most covetable cruising grounds, get in touch  with Luxury Charter Group..

Cala Mariolu, Sardinia

Accessible by arduous walking track, or by yacht tender, Cala Mariolu is a jaw-dropping 60m stretch of sand. Considered Sardinia's most beautiful beach, it boasts pink and white pebbles on the shore and crystal-clear water. As pure as nature intended, Cala Mariolu has no facilities, few tourists and is simply an azure bay that invites snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking. Above the turquoise sea soar majestic limestone cliffs which shade the beach each afternoon.


Playa de ses Illetes, Formentera, Spain

Set in a conservation area, the water at Formenteras Playa de ses Illetes offers more shades of blue than you will be able to count. With its soft sand, warm shallow water, restaurants and Isla de Espalmador just nearby, Playa de Ses Illetes is well worth a visit.

Saleccia, Corsica, France

Though well-known, Saleccia remains undeveloped and is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in France. Saleccia's proximity to the popular yacht spot St Florent makes it ideal for charter guests to pop in for a dip or an afternoon picnic.

Cala Luna, Golfo di Orosei, Italy

The Golfo di Orosei is a popular yachting destination, but it remains comparatively quiet as many of its beaches are accessible only by boat. The loveliest beach by far is the crescent-shaped Cala Luna, renowned for its clear waters that make it an excellent snorkeling and diving destination. There is also a small beach bar and café beneath prosaic pink oleander trees.

Myrtos, Kefalonia, Greece

Consistently voted as one of the best beaches in Greece, this beautiful stretch of sand lies at the feet of two mountains, Agia Dynati and Kalon Oros, and is backed by steep limestone cliffs.

Agia Anna, Amorgos, Greece

Agia Anna (Saint Anna) found fame after featuring in French director Luc Besson's 1988 film The Big Blue. The pebbly beach is topped by the small chapel of Agia Anna. A lack of facilities deters day trippers so as a charter yacht guest you will often have the beach to yourselves.

Kleftiko, Milos, Greece

Accessible only by boat (or a perilous quad-bike ride along an unpaved track), Kleftiko is a former pirate's hideout on the south-west of the island of Milos that is famous for its impressive rock formations, cave network and shimmering blue water.

Galazio, Paxos, Greece

Accessed only via boat, 'Galazio' in Greek means light blue, which is a perfect fit for this superlative little bay.

Navagio, Zakynthos, Greece

Known as Smugglers Cove, the hidden beach of Navagio in the Ionian Islands is accessible by boat, or base jumping – made famous by its Instagram profile! Renowned for its dazzling white sand, warm waters, and the remains of the cigarette smuggler ship that wrecked on the shore in 1983 giving the beach its name, Navagio is a must-visit during your Greek charter.

Owen Island, Cayman Islands
Owen Island

Just a short tender or kayak paddle from Little Cayman Island is Owen Island, a tiny sliver of paradise with soft white sand and lush foliage. Apart from doing absolutely nothing but surrendering to the serenity, you can capture a great photo of the view to Little Cayman's south shore and soak up the silence.

Trunk Bay, St. John, US Virgin Islands
St John

Its status as a national park means St. John is considered the most beautiful of the US Virgin Islands. There is no airport, so the only way to reach the island is by boat. Trunk Bay in particular has limpid blue water that is ideal for snorkeling and revelling in the tranquility. Seats and barbeques are the only traces of civilization and come in handy if you want a beach picnic.

Stocking Island, The Exumas
The Exumas

Make time to drop anchor at Stocking Island, four miles off of the northeast coast of Great Exuma Island. There are two restaurants, a hotel and 10 full-time inhabitants, but for divers, the blue hole at Hurricane Hole is a must-do. Another lure is the Chat 'n' Chill restaurant which is only accessible by boat. You can swim with stingrays that come in to feed on pieces of conch from the conch salad hut, or chomp on a plate of their famous conch burger, barbequed ribs or grilled chicken as you take in the tropical scenery from a deck chair or hammock on the beach or grab and go back to your charter yacht!

Colombier Bay, St Barths
St Barts

Colombier Bay (or Anse de Colombier) offers a quiet alternative to the more vibrant beaches on the island. Accessible by tender or by two walking tracks, Colombier Bay is one of the best picnic spots in the Caribbean. As part of the Réserve Naturelle Saint-Barthelemy, it is a great spot for diving or snorkeling and the Kayali wreck attracts an enormous array of marine life.

Canouan, Grenadines

Canouan means 'the island of tortoises'. Part of the Caribbean archipelago of St Vincent and the Grenadines (which is made up of 32 isles and cays that also comprise Mustique and Palm Island), Canouan is just five square miles across but is made up of 1,200 lush acres and is home to a large coral reef. South of Raffles along the windward coast, Windward Bay and Friendship Bay have idyllic, white sand beaches. The beach at Windward Bay also has interesting volcanic rock formations. On the leeward coast, Charlestown Bay is popular with yachts, and in the west, South Glossy Beach is sublime.

Tobago Cays, Grenadines
Tobago Cays

The Tobago Cays in the Southern Grenadines is a marine park comprising five small, uninhabited islands with coral reefs and picturesque lagoons with green turtles, colourful fish and crystal clear waters. It's an idyllic yachting anchorage, a dream for scuba divers, a paradise for beachcombers, and has been a film location for Pirates of the Caribbean.

Harbour Island, Bahamas
Harbour Island

Long and narrow Harbour Island, east of the capital Nassau, has miles of shoreline featuring stunning pink and white sand beaches and secluded coves as well as massive coral reefs, a snorkeler's paradise!

Abaco Island, Bahamas
Abaco Island

An island that boasts many beautiful beaches. One of our favourite's is Tahiti Beach. An isolated gem only accessible by boat (or on foot), you can be sure that you'll find a stretch of soft white sand here to call your own. With crystal clear calm waters, you won't be able to stay out of the sea here.
