The summer months are peeking their heads above the horizon, as the sunset finally crests that all-important 5 pm hill – giving us our daylight hours back, and naturally giving us pause to think about our summer holidays.

It’s been a tough few months for a great many of us, and it’s only natural to want a summer holiday to remember as a result! 

When it comes to luxury, few experiences rival the indulgence of leisurely afternoons spent aboard a yacht’s deck.

Of course, location still matters, and quite a bit too.

This begs the question: which are the best destinations for a yachting holiday this summer?

Sardinia is easily one of Europe’s better-kept secrets, being a large yet unassuming island some 220 miles from the west coast of Italy.

But just one look at the incredible marinas adorning Sardinia’s coast you will find yourself captivated by this remarkable mediterranean paradise, drawn to seek out yachts for sale to fully indulge in its magnificence. 

It has thousands upon thousands of miles of coastline and beach land to explore, all of which is better enjoyed from the sea than from land.

It is also one of the better Mediterranean islands to visit for cuisine, making your sun-bleached summer getaway that bit more glamorous.

The French Riviera

When talking about yachts, it is impossible not to talk about the French Riviera.

There is no official delineation for where the French Riviera begins and ends – it is, after all, a mood more than anything – but there are some definitive members of the club: Cannes, Monaco, and Saint Tropez.

All the above-named destinations are famed for their appeal to the glitterati of the world.

Cannes is a cultural icon thanks in large part to its annual film festival, while Monaco’s incredible weather and unique tax breaks make it a special draw for the rich and famous.

The star of the show is indubitably the climate, which sets off against the white-gold sands of the southern coast in stunning fashion.

The Amalfi Coast

Giving the French Riviera a run for its money – in some senses literally – is the Amalfi Coast.

Found on the southern side of a western Italy outcrop, dead east of Sardinia, the Amalfi Coast is another mecca for those with a taste for the finer things.

Once an unassuming collection of fishing villages and quiet settlements, this coastal beauty quickly became a secret retreat, and a poorly kept one to boot.

The Amalfi Coast has a deep and long-held maritime history, which is being added to contemporaneously by the ever-growing influx of yachts to its humble marinas.

There is so much to enjoy here, from pristine old-school terrazzo to quintessential seafood cuisine and some stunning views of the mountainous country.

You could also take yourself on a tour around the peninsula, taking in the beauty of Naples and Pompeii by yacht…

In conclusion, whether you seek the secluded charm of Sardinia, the glittering allure of the French Riviera, or the coastal beauty of the Amalfi Coast, these premier yachting destinations promise unforgettable experiences for your summer getaway.

Embark on a journey to indulge in luxury, explore stunning coastlines, and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
