We usually associate traveling with flights followed by drives. Sailing is a very different experience.Only a small number of people can get on the boat at a time. So, that allows you privacy and peace. You will cherish your time away from the urban commotion.

The sound of the wind filling the sails, the water flowing past the boat can be quite relaxing. In a way,you are more connected to nature when sailing.

Here’s our list of the most beautiful destinations in Europe:

  1. The Dorset and East Devon Coast, England
    It is not known for its weather, but it is pretty enough to make it to this list. The star attraction is the rock formations that date back to 185 million years. You should set sail from Weymouth and halt at pretty coastal towns along the way.

    The Sporades Islands are known for their clean green-blue waters and the conventional way of living. These islands have so much greenery that they are known as the Emerald of the Aegean.
    You must try lip-smacking local dishes like Astakomakaronada, Skopelitikitiropita, Fouskakia, Tonos Alonnissou, and Hamalia.
  8. Ionian Islands, Greece
    The Ionian Islands are arguably the best sailing destination in the world. You should start your journey at Corfu. Then sail your way through the turquoise waters. Make halts at each of the seven large islands. Among the smaller islands, Paxoi and Antipaxoi are worth a halt.
