Mediterranean Luxury Yacht Charter

The Mediterranean is divided into western and eastern parts both with enjoyable beaches, hidden coves, abundance of historical sites and majestic ports that house luxury yachts.

Croatia is described as a beautiful island country with a fantastic history, UNESCO heritage sites, rich culture, fresh cuisine, and the best way to experience all of this is through a yacht ride. Top city highlights include Brac, Dubrovnik, Hvar, Korcula, Mljet, Split, and Trogir.

Greece provides unparalleled cruising grounds with white sand beaches peppered with varying architecture throughout the various island chains. The Cyclades Islands provide an opportunity to indulge in beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife of Mykonos. A charter in this region is the most popular for Envy Yacht Charter clients. Other island chains offering varied itineraries are Ionian, Dodacanese and Peloponnese.

When we think of The Mediterranean, the Sea and the diet probably come to mind first. But, the Mediterranean is more than that: it’s a biogeographical region composed of seven member states, an influential climate, and unique biodiversity with some species that do not exist anywhere else. The states include France, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Greece, Malta, and Cyprus.

Croatia Itinerary:

1

Start in Trogir

Trogir is an ancient island that was developed by the Greeks and Romans before the Croats began transforming the island into what we’re familiar with today. Through various museums, vaults, art collections, and old libraries, you too can follow the continuity of life and times of man in these parts, where the sun and the sea, the rocks and the tradition merged with life.

2

Travel to Split

Known to be the largest town in Dalmatia, Split has long been an important commercial and transit trade center. Thanks to its exceptional cultural monuments and tourist attractions including interesting museums and galleries, Split has become an inevitable tourist destination for Mediterranean cruises.

Brac is the perfect destination in Croatia to enjoy the water and sand. This island is famously known for its white pebble beach where white limestone is ever-present. We typically anchor in Milna for the night before moving on to Hvar.

Travel to Hvar

Famous for its liveliness, party vibes, and also its wines, we find people typically want to spend a couple of days on Hvar. Our luxury yacht charter will anchor in the off-lying Pakleni islands during the day and will return to Hvar town in the evening for a night’s entertainment.

End in Dubrovnik

Located in southern Croatia, this is one of the most prominent islands in the Adriatic Sea. Its Old Town with massive stone walls is a tremendous historical attraction that we highly recommend seeing.

Greece History & Activities:

Greece is well known for many things - its islands, its mythology, its hospitality, activities you can enjoy, and unmatched beauty. Surrounded by beautiful waters, people come to Greece to enjoy a yacht experience like no other. The Greek Islands are a blend of history and modern-day culture. Explore the islands under blue skies and relax in the evening with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset. Once you’ve experienced Greece, you'll want to return again and again, to learn more about its ancient beginnings and discover something new!

Athens: Athens is the capital of Greece. With a history that dates back 3400 years, Athens today is one of the must-see cities of the world. Walk the ancient ruins of temples and museums by day then relax and enjoy the local cafes and bars at night. You can stroll along the seaside or meander among the many neighborhood shops, some offering high couture.

Santorini: Santorini is known as the Black Pearl of the Aegean Sea as you can see by its black pebble beaches and black sandy coves. Trek up the side of Tholos Naftilos, the now dormant volcano for amazing views of the surrounding area. Excellent galleries host the work of contemporary artists while history lovers can find plenty of ancient ruins and museums. Santorini also hosts a variety of dive sites for all levels of ability.

Mykonos: Mykonos is characterized by its bright white buildings, brilliant blue skies and warm gold-sand beaches. Adventure awaits both on the land and in the water. Museums, churches, and windmills are icons that distinguish this city from others. Mykonos is another fantastic place to visit for diving fanatics to swim amongst the sea creatures.

And that's just three of the many Greek islands you can visit!
