Mediterranean destinations accessible only by boat

If you use to travel on land, then you are excluded from access to some of the most prominent places on the planet.

Only the most dynamic navigators and discovery enthusiasts can experience the intense feelings stirred up by such pieces of paradise surrounded by the sea.

Let’s discover some destinations only reachable at the wheel of a 34-feet yacht!

The Mediterranean Sea offers plenty of islands, coves, and bays that can be reached only by sea.

Let’s start with Spain, where many places deserve to be visited at least once in your life.

Sa Dragonera is located in the Balearic Islands, precisely on the west coast of Mallorca. Its name stems from the characteristic profile of the island, which looks like a sleeping dragon. This place, once a pirate’s cave, is now an uninhabited islet and a nature reserve. If you want to get there on your own, then you have to obtain specific permission to dock and go ashore.

Sa Dragonera is the perfect place for nature lovers, thanks to the several hiking trails, diving areas and coves hidden by the rocky walls

The island also holds a special place in the hearts of fans of the fantasy genre, as it has been one of the shooting locations of the TV series Game of Thrones.

La Graciosa, located in the Canary Islands, north of Lanzarote, is the final frontier of adventure. 

This corner of paradise inspired Stevenson, author of the novel Treasure Island, with its pristine beaches, its crystal-clear water, and its ancient sandy paths. Reachable only upon permission, it is the perfect haven for sea enthusiasts and adventurers.

Northeast of Spain, the Cíes Islands, known in Ancient Rome as the “Islands of the Gods,” brings the Caribbean to Europe, with its tropical vegetation, white sand, and emerald green water. 
This area requires an approval for access, especially concerning one of the most stunning shores in the world, Rodas. This 1.3-kilometer-long beach can be accessed only 2000 people a day to preserve its flora and fauna from the tourist influx.

Greece is no less in its natural beauties accessible only by boat.

The island Zakynthos is a popular holiday destination that offers many attractions, such as Keri Caves, the islet of Marathonisi, known as Turtle Island, the Marine Park, and Skinari Cape. 

However, one of the most impressive locations can be reached exclusively at the wheel of a boat: Navagio Beach, also known as Shipwreck Beach. In this strip of land lies the wreckage of a Freightliner ran aground in 1980 and then abandoned, which still rests buried in the limestone gravel of the beach, becoming part of the charming panorama.

Skiathos, a Greek island in the northwest Aegean Sea, offers a beautiful landscape, rich of coves, gravel, and sand beaches surrounded by chalk cliffs. Particularly noteworthy is the Lalaria Beach, made of white rounded pebbles, accessible only by boat.

To explore these dream locations, rely on the experience of a company specialized in the production of high-performance boats.
