The trendiest Mediterranean yacht charter destinations

Ibiza, Spain

Ibiza is arguably one of the trendiest destinations in Europe, and for a good reason. The White Isle is a heavenly destination, a place where natural beauty and hedonistic nightlife co-exist in harmony.

It is only right to kick-start your Mediterranean yacht charter with a night in one of San Antonio’s superclubs. Alternatively, recharge and rejuvenate at Playa d’en Bossa’s Beachouse with a sunrise yoga session on the warm sand, or enjoy a healthy lunch at Aubergine, a farm-to-table restaurant situated under olive groves and pine trees.

Of course, no trip to Ibiza would be complete without a trip to the smallest and most southerly island in the Pityusic Island Groups, Formentera. These islands and their surrounding islets are an image of perfection. Spend the morning soaking up the sun on the secluded beaches before heading to Beso Beach for a cold drink under the fringed palm canopy.

Make sure to send an Instagram message to the Mojito Man, who can arrive at your anchored luxury yacht charter armed with ingredients to make you a mojito on deck.

St Tropez, France

The French Riviera has no shortage of trendy offerings, but St Tropez is truly one of a kind. After a morning of shopping in St Tropez’s designer boutiques, cruise along to the famed Pampelonne beach in time for a lunch reservation at Club 55. This beach club is the most sought-after venue in Cote d’Azur and a hotspot for A-list elites and Hollywood stars. Here you can enjoy a delectable menu paired with a cold glass of Provence Rose. Head to Nikki Beach for the most happening party in St Tropez for some post-lunch entertainment. Enjoy dancing on the tables as the sun sets over the azure blue sea.

As an antidote to the glitz and glamour, spend a Sunday morning perusing the market stalls in Place des Lices. Here, you can find fresh Provencal produce, as well as antiques and vintage fashion pieces. Have a coffee in the square and watch locals enjoy a game of boules.

Amalfi Coast, Italy

Synonymous with romance, culture and old-world glamour, the Amalfi Coast is one of the finest gems in the Mediterranean. Begin your luxury yacht charter in Sorrento, an enduringly beautiful coastal town peppered with chic boutiques and stylish bars. Equally as beautiful, the technicoloured town of Positano boasts stunning views on land and at anchor. Enjoy an evening aperitif at Le Sirenuse, a glamorous hotel adorned in colourful majolica tiles with a terrace that offers unparalleled views over the town. Cruise further afield for the cosmopolitan Capri – a tiny island steeped in beauty and history, with plenty of natural attractions such as the Blue Grotto and La Faraglioni.

A highlight of any luxury yacht charter in Italy is the superb cuisine, with its fresh flavours and local ingredients, all ripened to perfection by the year-round sunshine. Make sure to drop anchor off the coast of Naples – the birthplace of the pizza. Here you can enjoy the classic Margherita, followed by a refreshing gelato and local limoncello.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Perched on the eastern tip of Croatia’s coast, Dubrovnik is ideal for those looking to unwind and discover a new city by yacht charter. Gothic architecture, secluded islets and crystalline Adriatic waters are just some of the unique offerings to explore on your Mediterranean yacht charter. Cruise across the waters to Split, Dubrovnik and Zadar, where dramatic terrain and buildings capped by baked clay-red roofs promise great day trips and exquisite cuisine. Check out the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, a celebration of music with plenty of concerts and recitals on the schedule throughout July and August.

Don’t miss a trip to Mljet, a remote island just a short cruise north of Dubrovnik. Get your yacht crew to get the toy box of water toys out and spend the afternoon snorkelling and paddleboarding in the emerald waters.
