A sailing holiday  is one of the best ways to experience a coastal destination, especially when that destination is found in a sunny region such as the Mediterranean Basin. However, many people who haven’t been sailing before are unsure what to expect. A sailing holiday will delight just about any holidaymaker, and you can expect some of the following things:

Sailing may not afford quite as much room space as a hotel on land, but this does not for a moment mean that it compromises on comfort. Modern yachts include comfortable beds, on board fridges, and other amenities such as iPod-compatible stereo systems. And unlike a hotel on land, your comfortable accommodation can travel with you as you move from place to place.

One of the joys of sailing is that you get to travel in comfort. This means you are likely to get a broad variety of experiences out of your holiday. From big cities to small towns and soft beaches to rugged cliffs, you will experience everything the coast you visit has to offer. You will also get the chance to experience all the available activities, whether that means enjoying the nightlife, exploring an area of outstanding natural beauty, or engaging in activities such as paragliding.

Sailing is certainly one of the most fun ways to spend a holiday. A skippered yacht will mean that the worry of keeping the boat going properly will be taken off of your hands, yet you will still get the chance to learn the fun and fascinating skills that go into sailing. Your position on top of the waves will also give you access to a wide range of sea-based activities such as swimming, snorkelling and watersports.
