4 amazing places to sail this summer

The waters around southern Europe are among the finest sailing seas in the world. And with the sailing season finally here, it’s time to weigh anchor and head out to sea.

Greek odysseys

The Greek islands’ most magnificent natural scenery can be found around the Ionian Islands. This is the home of Homer’s Odysseus. And when you see the deep waters, high mountains, and lush vegetation here, it will be easy to understand why the Greek legend’s journey home is the most famous sailing odyssey in the world.A hidden gem.

Corsican coves

The Corsican coastline is best appreciated from the deck of a sailboat. The French island has lots of enchanting hidden beaches and coves that provide wonderful spots to drop anchor at. Should you venture ashore, you will find towns that exude a low-key French Riviera style glamour and a gorgeous, dreamy countryside. 

Alone in the Azores

The Azores are a cluster of tiny volcanic Portuguese islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Their isolated location means that they are less troubled by tourists than many places in the Mediterranean, and are therefore an amazing place to visit, especially by boat. If you’re lucky you might see a whale or a dolphin against the horizon.

Turkish delights

Rewind time and visit Turkey. Ancient ruined cities and fortresses can easily be seen along the southern coastline. And charming villages, white beaches, and turquoise waters can also be enjoyed while sailing in the dazzling sunlight. The impressive scenery will provide you with the perfect backdrop for a delightful journey.
