4. Amalfi Coast of Italy
The Amalfi Coast is renowned throughout the world for the unique beauty of its landscapes. Twisting roads winding through rocky cliffs reveal tantalising glimpses of small villages, secluded bays, and inlets, all looking out over a clear blue sea. Lush green Mediterranean flora colours the slopes of the surrounding hills and cliffs. This journey leads you to towns of worldwide fame such as Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. While a few miles from the coast lay the breathtaking islands of charming Capri and the lesser-known Ischia.

Sitting strategically between the French Riviera, Sardinia, and Tuscany, Corsica blends the flavours and customs of all of these to form its own unique culture. The West coast is very rugged and windy, while the East coast with its wide stretching beaches is protected from the wind. It is a charter yacht paradise, offering some of the most pleasant cruising grounds in the western Mediterranean and something for everybody – beach lovers, divers, culture buffs, hikers, history enthusiasts, epicureans.

6. Balearic Islands of Spain
With some 300 days of sunshine each year, hundreds of beaches, diverse cultural heritage and unique hospitality, the Balearic Islands are a region of colour and contrasts. Ibiza, known for its party-scene, also has a cultural heart, while Mallorca, beyond its bustling capital Palma, is home to villagers who proudly maintain their culture and customs in pretty hillside towns and farmhouses. The Balearics boast pristine beaches with lots of coves to explore, a full calendar of vibrant festivals and world-class dive sites in their sapphire waters.

7. Sicily & Aeolian Islands
Sicily, Italy's largest island, has been invaded countless times over the centuries, by the Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans and Spaniards. Each of the occupiers left behind their cultural influences that have blended to give Sicily a personality as distinctive as its Arabic-Norman architecture of the Middle Ages. A visit to Sicily is an experience to be treasured. Rising out of the Tyrrhenian Sea, some fifteen miles off the Sicilian coast, The Aeolian Islands - Lipari, Salina, Stromboli, Vulcano, Panarea, Filicudi and Alicudi — with their black beaches of volcanic soil, and dazzling clear light, have everything to make your yacht charter an unforgettable experience
