For some people who love bareboat chartering, there’s nothing better than choosing a new destination year after year. Some, however, are left longing to return to a certain place. After a week-long, 10-day or even two-week introduction to a beautiful locale you may be left feeling like you still didn’t get to see half of what you wanted to.
It can be great to plan to go back year after year and really get to know the natural wonders of an amazing place. You can also find the best marinas, villages and restaurants, and really get to know some of the locals. Travelling to a place you know you’ll return to allows you to plan a relaxed itinerary, one that won’t have you rushing from place to place trying to see everything in a short amount of time.
Here are two popular places you can start visiting this year, which have the potential to turn into ‘your’ bareboating destination.
