  4. 5 reasons you should book a sailing holiday

In 2022, sailing holidays confirmed their strong presence in the travel industry, meaning that this type of lifestyle is now conquering people's hearts when it comes to holidays at sea. Anyone who already sailed knows what we're talking about, and will strongly advise you to try one of these once-in-your-lifetime experiences, to enjoy unique destinations from a completely different perspective.

Let's start 2023 with a list of great reasons why you should consider a sailing holiday for your next break, hoping to inspire you to travel more and enjoy life to the fullest!

  • Catamarans and sailboats are sustainable choices

We should start approaching holidays in a more sustainable way, and sailboats or catamarans are definitely a great option if we want to live an eco-friendly experience. These boats are the most responsible way to navigate, as they generate very low CO2 emissions when the engines are in function. They can also move with the sole use of the wind, which makes them one of the most silent means of transport. An additional environmentally friendly behavior adopted by the crew during the holiday will also help to preserve the marine biodiversity and to contribute to a more sustainable living.

  • You can really escape the hustle and bustle 

Sailing is the best way to get in close contact with nature because it allows you to spend most of the time on the water, surrounded by pristine vegetation in secluded bays or near paradisiac beaches. With a sailboat, you can also get away from the crowds of tourists and enjoy the prettiest spots from the best, exclusive location.

  • Visit exclusive destinations from a different perspective

With over 800 destinations available worldwide, we are well aware that some spots are only reachable by boat. Remote islets, secluded bays, exclusive swim spots: a sailing holiday allows you to go wherever you want whenever you want, without packing your things or jumping on crowded public transports, visiting a new destination every day and enjoying the holiday to the fullest. Total freedom!

  • It’s more affordable than you think 

Do you still believe sailing holidays are only for the rich and famous? Well, think twice! We’re obviously not referring to the 50-meter-long yachts, but the cost of an average sailing holiday on a boat with 2/3 cabins is comparable to an all-inclusive hotel family holiday. Your charted yacht will be your accommodation, transport, and entertainment at the same time, plus the costs can be split between the rest of the crew. No need to break the bank to experience life on water! There are many other ways to reduce the cost of a sailing holiday, such as booking early, taking advantage of special discounts, sailing outside peak seasons, bareboating, and more.

  • Relax or be active

You can easily decide whether your holiday will be an immersive relaxing experience or a pure dose of adrenaline because of the variety of things to do and the total freedom that will allow you to! Spend your days lazing around on the deck or on a beach, swimming in crystal clear waters, or get some action by exploring towns, trying a new water sport, or hiking through the surrounding areas. Your holiday, your choice! And in both cases, you’ll feel completely relaxed and revitalized.
