  4. 8 Bays you can only get to by boat

Tired of the usual holidays on overcrowded beaches where there is no room to relax?  Are you always looking for hidden and uncrowded bays and beaches? Do you want to enjoy the sun and take a dip in the crystal clear and pristine waters? Surely the boat rental is the right solution for you.

On board, there are no more fights over the best place on the shore with those who arrive early in the morning dragging behind them an endless series of umbrellas, sunbeds, rackets and cooler bags.

On your yacht there it's just you and your crew, no one will complain about the loud music, drinks and icicles are always chilly in the fridge and the pole-position spot, facing the sea, is already included in the package.

Also, if you want to take a relaxing walk on the beach, you can reach by boat beaches that are inaccessible from the mainland, intended only for the lucky few who have decided to book a holiday on a sailing boat or a catamaran. 

Get there by boat. You'll be amazed.
