Your honeymoon is perhaps the most special trip you will ever take. Traditionally occurring immediately after a wedding, it’s when you and your partner will have a wonderful chance to relax as a married couple for the first time, recuperating after the stress of organising their wedding day, and spending plenty of quality time together.
For many couples, their honeymoon is an opportunity to push the boat out (no pun intended) and opt for a luxurious holiday that they might not otherwise take. Yachting holidays offer the perfect escape for newlyweds – they guarantee true relaxation and luxury, as well as giving couples the chance to see various different cities and destinations, rather than being confined to one. Hiring a crewed yacht also gives a sense of privacy that is rarely available when staying in hotels or other resorts.
Sailing around the eastern Mediterranean on your own private yacht is an increasingly popular option for honeymooners. Here are just a few of the sights and cities you’ll be able to see on your trip:
The stunning Greek islands are an enduringly popular honeymoon destination – but why limit yourself to just one island? With a crewed yacht charter, you can explore a cluster of Greece’s most beautiful islands, from the Southern Cyclades (where you’ll find the picturesque isles of Santorini and Milos), to the Ionian islands (where you can enjoy the wonders of Corfu, Paxos and Zakynthos). Think sun-kissed beaches, warm Greek hospitality and spectacular sunsets from your yacht every night.
You’ll find a multitude of perfect moorings in Turkey, and the wonderful climate means it’s a fantastic honeymoon destination at any time of the year. From party capital Marmaris, where you can join in the vibrant nightlife, to the beautiful cities of Antalya and Bodrum, you’re sure to find a relaxing haven in Turkey.
If culture and exploration is what you’re looking for on your honeymoon, Montenegro is the ideal choice. With stunning natural parks just inland, as well as two famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a plethora of engaging museums about Balkan history, this small country packs a punch in terms of cultural wonders. For those down days when you’re not hiking in the hills or exploring a museum, relax on one of the many pristine beaches, or enjoy the luxurious surroundings of Porto Montenegro, one of the world’s top marinas.
The gems in Croatia’s crown are all situated along the coast, making it perfect for a yachting honeymoon. From the beautiful walled city of Dubrovnik to the hip and vibrant city of Split, you’ll find a scene to suit you. Not to mention the cluster of beautiful, isolated islands for those days when seclusion and privacy is at the top of the agenda.
