Sailing cruises in the Mediterranean Sea - the choice of those who want to go on an exciting sailing trip on a yacht, but does not have navigation skills. Or simply wants to entrust the navigation to professionals to get the opportunity to relax and surrender to the flow of events.
Unlike a cruise on a huge liner, resembling a floating hotel and a shopping center at the same time, here you choose the route and the company yourself and almost every day you visit something interesting, and not just admire the boundless sea space. Do you want to turn a vacation into a real adventure, meet new people and see familiar (or unfamiliar) places from a new perspective? A vacation on a yacht in the Mediterranean can be an excellent option.

New perspective of the Mediterranean
Variety of yachts and cabin charters in the Mediterranean can be very different and depends on your goals, budget, specifics, nature of the company, duration of the voyage and season. But no matter when or where, this region has something to offer: there are historical monuments, magnificent port cities with an active day and night life, churches and casinos, baroque masterpieces and ultramodern buildings. Huge marinas, where you can see the most famous yachts in the world, and tiny marinas for just several cute boats. And the beaches! No limit to any imagination: crowded and modernized or primitive and deserted; sandy or covered with pebbles or shell rocks; even different colors - white, black, or pink! Prestigious resorts with a record concentration of celebrities and cosy small fishing villages, where life flows as it used a hundred years ago. The cradle of civilization is like a huge buffet, with hundreds of various dishes for every taste.
Even if you have already been to Europe before, having set sail on a yacht in the Mediterranean Sea cruise by the cabin, you will see many familiar sights from an unusual angle. You will also visit many new places that are almost unattainable from land and are never included in a standard tourist excursion package. For example, some picturesque beaches of Greece, Turkey, Malta, Majorca, have such rocky shores that you can come closer only from the sea, preferably on a catamaran. Here you will not find dozens of tourists who arrived at the same time on 3-4 buses and lined up to take pictures against the background of a replicated view. You can anchor almost anywhere and take unique pictures that no one of your friends will ever have.
History, nature, culture
By the cabin sailing cruise in the Mediterranean is not only a leisurely journey across the endless expanse of the sea, swimming in secluded lagoons and relaxing on great beaches, some of which are included in the UNESCO list of nature heritage. It is also a chance to learn more about the history of the region and see the unique monuments of architecture (or their impressive ruins). Near the coast of many Mediterranean countries - Italy, Malta, Spain, Greece, Turkey - you can find the remains of megalithic structures, temples and amphitheaters.
You can visit everything you want at a convenient time for you - no one will rush you, and you can be left alone with the “places of power” and feel their ancient energy. The Valley of Noto, near Palermo, the Calypso Cave on Gozo, the famous Pompeii, the ruins of the Palace of Knossos in Crete, which are associated with the legend of the Minotaur, the ancient city of Ephesus in Turkey. Visit iconic landmarks or those that lie outside the guided tour route. Stop in picturesque places that ordinary tourists regretfully seeing off from the bus window. Even those who may rent a car often cannot get close to such sites due to the banal lack of roads or parking places. Vacationing on a yacht in the Mediterranean is a different matter, it gives you the freedom to choose and plan, especially if you are traveling in a big company and have a whole ship at your disposal.
