As we settle into a brand new decade, there are so many new things we all pledge to try, from doing a parachute jump to exploring more of the world. And who are we to stop you! On the contrary…we’re here to say DO IT! Explore the world, discover new places, meet new people…and why not do it on a yacht? As the world’s leading charter company offering sailing holidays in 50+ destinations around the globe, we know how hard it can be to choose your next destination, so to help, we’ve pulled together our top yacht charter destinations.
Where it all began….our first base in The Seychelles opened in 2000 and still remains one of our most popular charter destinations. One of the most idyllic locations on the earth, The Seychelles are made up of 115 quaint islands, and our Seychelles by the cabin charter itineraries will take you to some of the popular inner islands including Mahe, Praslin, and La Digue and some of the less-visited, remote Outer Islands, just beyond the Seychelles. Relax on the beaches, swim amongst the corals, snorkel at the Ile Coco Marine National Park and meet giant Aldabra tortoises at the Curieuse Marine National Park.
“The Seychelles is very special as it is still very unspoilt, most of the famous beaches have nothing on them, the snorkelling is first class and the scenery is dramatic with the turquoise sea, lush tropical forests and the amazing granite boulders.” – Sue, Dream Yacht Charter sales manager
One of our top yacht charter destinations to visit in 2020, Grenada has so much to offer, from abundant wildlife to Instagram ready beaches and is the perfect location for a bareboat or by the cabin yacht charter.
Visit the island’s chocolate plantation, swim amongst an underwater village of magnificent sculptures, meet the mona monkeys at the Grand Etang National Park and Reserve and witness exhilarating sailing during Grenada Sailing Week.
“Grenada is an ideal destination as you can get there with a direct flight from the UK, it has decent winds for sailing, lots of history on the island and it is very traditionally Caribbean. The beaches are golden and secluded with palm trees dotted around. Known as the spice island it has beautiful lush green mountains and gorgeous red bougainvillea flowers everywhere.” – Lorraine, Dream Yacht Charter sales agent.
Whether you enjoy lounging on one of 300 golden beaches, taking in the local history at archaeological ruins, hiking through nature reserves or partying the night away, a sailing holiday in the Balearic Island of Mallorca has something just for you.
Just a short flight from the UK, choose from a bareboat or by the cabin yacht charter where you can swim in the turquoise waters at Cala Pi, sail the stunning coastline of Cala Figuera and walk along the labyrinthine streets of Palma.
“My favourite European destination – there’s so much more to Mallorca than many people realise. Head west from Dream’s base in Palma to explore the rugged coastline of the Tramuntana Mountains with it’s hidden bays, rocky coves and beautiful villages perched on the top of the cliffs. Head east through the Bay of Palma to reach the sand dunes of Es Trenc or the Cabrera National Park “ – Amanda, Dream Yacht Charter PR and Communications Manager
Offering some of the most wonderful sailing in the world, a yacht charter in Antigua will no doubt leave you wanting to return time and again. The warm sunshine, 365 beautiful beaches, exhilarating sailing and vast array of activities both on and off the water make Antigua a firm favourite among experienced sailors and novices alike.
The 2020 Antigua Sailing Week kicks off in April and as one of the world’s most popular nautical events, attracts thousands of people from around the world who flock to the Caribbean Island to take part in the regatta, spectate or just enjoy the party.
“For me, Antigua is the go to destination for 2020. As well as the golden beaches, great watersport activities and delicious cuisine, the sailing conditions are simply exhilarating and this year’s Antigua Sailing Week is set to be one of the best – we are proud to be part of it.” – Andy, Dream Yacht Charter UK Director

There is something very special about heading off from Mandraki Harbour with your family, gliding across the cobalt coloured water and anchoring off one of the tiny little coves hidden within the cliffs on the approach to Symi Island – absolute paradise!” – Aimee, Dream Yacht Charter Digital Marketing Manager
