Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Looking for a place to park your superyacht this summer? Sail beyond the cliché and overcrowded ports of St. Tropez and other popular spots. Instead, consider these off-the-beaten-path locales.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Gozo, Malta

Just south of Sicily lie two gems of the Mediterranean sea: the islands of Malta and Gozo. While Malta is the more majestic of the two, with its medieval walls and jewel-toned bays, a 30-minute sail north will take you to the quiet island of Gozo. Gozo is home to Reqqa Point, which Jacques Cousteau called one of the most stunning scuba diving spot in the Mediterranean.

Fethiye, Turkey

Nestled in the southern part of an emerald-green bay, Fetiye is the perfect place to stop if you want to explore. While many of its historical structures were destroyed in a 1958 earthquake, there are many things to discover in the area, including 11 islands, the ghost town of Kayaköy (Karmylassos) and the happening seaside town of Öludeniz.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Menorca, Spain

The northernmost island of the Balearics, Menorca is the second largest, and most chill, of the bunch. You certainly won’t find Ibiza’s dance parties and raves on this quiet natural paradise, but you will find peace and tranquility. Declared a Unesco Biosphere Reserve in 1993, the island has 219 kilometres of untouched beaches backed by rolling green hills and various coves.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Milos, Greece

The island of Milos is actually the blown-out top of a volcano, so the landscape is quite spectacular. Most of the coast is jagged and there are only a few white sand beaches, but it’s worth a stay for its stunning geological wonders. There are 70 beaches in total: Sarakiniko and Papafragas are worth a trip.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Syracuse, Italy

The 2,700-year-old city of Syracuse is the capital of the province of Syracuse, Sicily. Make a stop here and take in the Greek history, culture, amphitheatres and architecture.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Hvar, Croatia

The Croatian island of Hvar has recently become a hot spot for globetrotters. With 2724 hours of sunshine each year, it’s the sunniest of all the Croatian islands. Step off your yacht and head inland to explore the lavender fields, quiet villages and rolling green landscape.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Madeira, Portugal

Located off the coast of North-West Africa, the Portuguese island of Madeira is a tranquil spot. With its bougainvillea-covered terra-cotta-roofed homes, lush gardens, parks and volcanic caves, it’s a great stop to stretch your legs, go for a hike or do other outdoor activities.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Kotor, Montenegro

In Southern Europe’s deepest river canyon lays the town of Kotor, Montenegro, in the Bay of Kotor. With overhanging limestone cliffs and rich cultural heritage, the town offers a mixture of picturesque beauty and history.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Bonifacio, France

Northern winds are known to sweep through the area around Bonifacio, Corsica, but the hills around the busy port and cruise ship destination provide a protective respite. Located just west of Italy, the town’s Italian influence is apparent in its cuisine and customs. For an adventure, take a small boat and explore the many caves around the bay.

Amazing Superyacht Destinations in the Mediterranean Sea

Nicosia, Cyprus

Located on the banks of the Pedieos River, Nicosia is the capital of the island of Cyprus. Averaging 300 days of sunshine a year, this is an ideal place to moor your yacht if you plan on working on your tan. Interesting tidbit: Nicosia is the only divided capital in the world (the South is governed by the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.)
