A sailing trip for Instagram fans - Snap the hottest shareable shots on a yacht

Enchanting Ermioni, Greece

The history and heritage of the Greek islands is so spectacular, the atmosphere will charm and sweep you off your feet as soon as you arrive. People have called this island home since 3,000 BC and one look around this incredible landscape will very quickly tell you why.

Hypnotising Hvar, Croatia

From ancient ruins to a lit nightlife, get you an island that can do both, right?! Seriously though, you can spend your days strolling around the 16th century castle or climb up to the island’s fortress that has protected the island since the 13th century, before hitting the town and watching the sunset from a rooftop bar that has become the haunt of every A-lister when they’re in town. Between enchanting architecture and spectacularly OTT cocktails, your Instagram feed is sure to make your mates at home jel in approximately 0.3 seconds.

Historic Hydra, Greece

On an island where motor vehicles are strictly prohibited and donkeys are the main form of transportation (yes, really!), you already know you’re going to be in for a treat. Think cobbled streets, the scent of fruit trees in the air and pure tranquillity. Bliss!

Allow Isola Filicudi to Captivate You on Your Sailing Trip

Famous for its wildflower meadows, secluded sea grottos and breath taking natural beauty, any amount of time spent on this beautiful Italian island feels like a dream come true. Admire the rocky shoreline, hike up the extinct volcano for some incredible panoramic views across the ocean, and party the night away under some of the brightest stars you’ll ever see. It’s magical.
