1. Flotilla sailing through the coves of Ibiza and Formentera

Discover the best corners of Ibiza and Formentera with this sailing trip from Valencia. In addition to visiting the coves and bathing in them, the other attractions offered by the islands in the form of sunsets, and tourist visits on land or good atmosphere, this crossing stands out for its social spirit. Sailing in a flotilla means sharing the adventure with many other people, usually "singles" or small groups, making life on board and distributing the tasks on the various ships that make the trip in parallel.

2. Sailing vacations in Cabo de Gata

Among the many natural areas of the Mediterranean through which you can sail, the Cabo de Gata stands as one of the favorite destinations. Although the most common is usually a weekend getaway, in this case we propose a week of vacation on board to enjoy every corner of the Natural Park and the Almeria coast with the calm and peace they deserve.

3. Sail the Camino de Santiago from Santander

One of the common plans for vacations is to make the Camino de Santiago. Now you can undertake this adventure in a different way, aboard a sailboat that will take you on a voyage from Santander to La Coruña, completing the last steps on foot until you reach Santiago de Compostela.

4. A week of life on board diving in Ibiza, Formentera, Columbretes

If you feel like combining a sailing with diving in the sea, this journey with life on board is one of the best options. You will spend a week with a diving expert and a group of sea enthusiasts with whom you will sail natural areas such as the Columbretes Islands Marine Reserve and, of course, the Pitiusas.

5. Sailing through the coves of Menorca from Mahón

The easternmost island of the Balearic Islands is also the one that usually leaves those who sail along its coasts most impressed. The reason lies in the appreciable geological differences that it presents with respect to other islands of the archipelago, since Menorca has a natural wealth on its cliffs that perfectly accompanies its suggestive coves. All this you will discover in this one-week journey in which you will travel the entire island.

6. Cruise from Lisbon to Azores in a Tall Ship

It is necessary to travel many miles in the Atlantic to reach the Azores Islands, one of the most suggested territories to sail from the Peninsula. The challenge of traveling by boat there is much more bearable if you embark on this classic sailboat, known as Tall Ship for its enormous dimensions, which will make you feel like a sailor from another era in this Atlantic crossing.

7. Sailing trip to the Dalmatian Islands, Croatia

Sailing in Croatia is becoming one of the activities most demanded by users who want an original plan for their vacation. The breathtaking views offered by the Croatian coasts and the thousands of islands that bathe the Adriatic make crossing the seas of this nation very fun. In this case, you can also travel with all the amenities offered by a professional skipper and an expert cook, who will ensure that your stay on board is perfect.

8. Cross the English Channel by sailboat

67 nautical miles separate the Isle of Wight from Alderney; two islands belonging to the United Kingdom but located north and south of the English Channel respectively. On this sailboat trip you will have the opportunity to do this navigation and also to visit other essential places such as the French city of Cherbourg or the peculiar Guernsey Island.

9. Sail a week through the Greek Cyclades

Greece is one of the European countries that most invites sailing on its seas, as short island-to-island cruises are suitable for all types of crew and ages. In this case, we offer two sailing routes on the Cyclades Islands, both starting from Mykonos, to explore the Hellenic southeast in all its splendor.

10. Sailing holidays on the Aeolian Islands

The Aeolian Islands form a volcanic archipelago north of Sicily. It is one of the most spectacular areas to spend your sailing holidays, since from the comfort of the boat you can marvel at places like Stromboli. If you dare, you can encourage yourself to contemplate more closely the area of the ancient volcanoes with this one-week sailing cruise through the islands.
