The 4 Best Islands to Sail Around

Sailing trips are a great way to discover the most beautiful corners of the world. Below are presented the four best islands in the world to sail around.

Mallorca, Spain

Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic islands and is ideal for both a beginner’s and an advanced sailing holiday. It takes one week to circumnavigate at a fast pace and two weeks following a more relaxed itinerary; we’d recommend the latter, so that you have time to stop in several of the finest harbours.

Pag, Croatia

Croatia still has an undiscovered feel and is an outstanding destination for sailing – being somewhat reminiscent of the French Riviera in the 1960s. While popular spots like Hvar are comparably busy to St Tropez, islands like Pag offer peaceful anchorages even in the height of summer. Pag can be found close to the coastal city of Zadar.

Bermuda, USA

Sailing is synonymous with Bermuda, a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean. The weather here is suitable for taking to the high seas, and the water is mostly calm and clear for leisurely cruises.

Antigua, Caribbean

The small, paradisiacal island of Antigua is known as the sailing capital of the Eastern Caribbean. The island is also known for its annual Antigua Sailing Week in late April, based out of the town of English Harbour on the south coast; this event involves athletes and amateurs racing around the island.
