Synonymous with luxury and romance, the Caribbean is a top choice for honeymooners. With crystal clear waters, palm-fringed beaches and a sunny climate, the islands offer the perfect backdrop for a sailing adventure.
Antigua and St Lucia are popular choices, with their pink coral bays and hidden beaches. For ultimate seclusion, head to the Grenadines or Mustique, with their unspoiled islands and lively nightlife. Grenada offers a more laid-back atmosphere, with year-round sailing and a wealth of natural beauty to explore.
British Virgin Islands
Considered among the world’s best sailing grounds, the British Virgin Islands offer a breathtaking cruising ground with endless options for activity and relaxation. From Anegada’s low-lying coral atoll to Virgin Gorda’s enormous rock pools, the natural beauty of the islands is simply spectacular.
For a truly magical honeymoon, set sail in Thailand. Starting in Phuket, you’ll explore a mix of lively party islands and untouched natural beauty. From stunning scenery to delicious cuisine and superb beaches, Thailand offers the perfect backdrop for a sailing adventure.
From the Balearic Islands to Croatia, the Mediterranean offers a wealth of romantic sailing destinations. Whether you’re sipping limoncello off the Amalfi coast, snorkelling in the Gulf of Fethiye or island hopping in Croatia, each destination has its own unique charm. May to October is the best time to sail in the Mediterranean, with the warmest weather from July to September.
