Best Family Sailing Holidays Destinations

Freedom, variety, fun, and abundant relaxation are what you can expect when you charter a luxury yacht for your best family sailing holidays. Between the luxurious comfort of a private yacht, and the options offered by some of the world’s most family-friendly destinations, a luxury yacht charter is indeed a truly unbeatable choice. Short sailing distances, a plethora of inflatable and powered toys (for kids, parents and grandparents) and a myriad of enticing attractions, are just some of the perks you can all look forward to during an all-inclusive Caribbean family vacation.

Kids of all ages are usually utterly enthralled with life on a luxury yacht. Who could blame them? They have a team of enthusiastic crew members ready to entertain them, a personal chef to cater for their needs and a captain to show them the ropes of all the onboard toys. Kids can spend hours just sliding into the sea and playing on inflatable trampolines aboard some of the best family cruises in the world!

Build sandcastles on sparkling sandy beaches, relax with onboard games and have a load of fun simply exploring new surroundings together. But what makes a yacht charter rewarding and unforgettable is when it’s teamed up with an exceptional, family-friendly destination. Want your family to be entertained both on and off your yacht? Then you may want to consider the following superb destinations for your next family yacht charter.

British Virgin Islands

Just a stone throw away from home, the British Virgin Islands are arguably the most popular choice for best family sailing holidays. Year round ideal temperatures, an array of secluded coves with pristine shallows and idyllic beaches at every turn, the BVIs will rock your boat like no other place on your all-inclusive Caribbean family vacation. With legends of pirates and rum runners, the BVI is a kid’s playground of mysterious sites, infused in a natural paradise of sun, sea and stunning surf. Calm anchorages, ideal for learning to paddle and wakeboard, are enticing for kids and relaxing for their parents. The BVI is a particularly good destination for families with younger tots in tow and family sailing holidays for beginners. You won’t need long to arrive, will have no jetlag to deal with and you can be off and sailing in no time at all.

Bahamas

The Bahamas are certainly a superb choice at the best of times, yet once you add the chance to spend a few days at the exhilarating Atlantis theme-park resort, then your best family sailing holidays are bound to be quite unforgettable. This adventurous paradise offers a near-infinite choice of fun activities for young and old alike; along with plenty of fine dining and even casino-gaming if you’re planning a night out sans the little ones on best family cruises.

Once you hit the high seas, you could literally snorkel your way through hundreds of spectacular islands, discover the safest and most divine swimming shallows of Harbour Island, or swim with the docile nurse sharks at Compass Cay. Atlantis may offer you a chance to swim with dolphins, but in the Exumas you can swim with pigs, which is one of the most unforgettable experiences you’ll arguably ever have!

Croatia

Want to venture farther from home and introduce your family to culturally rich European heritage and history while still enjoying the fun packed adventures of the best family sailing holidays? A Croatia yacht charter is a phenomenal choice for family sailing holidays for beginners. Over a stretch of about 1000 miles, you’ll find hundreds of islands to discover, each offering its own array of historical, cultural and family-friendly attractions. The islands are very close together so sailing distances are short which is ideal for children. In addition to all of the onboard toys, you can entice the kids with an exhilarating hike to the fortress in Hvar, a snorkel in the Blue Cave on Bisevo, beach games at Zlatni Rat, or a bike ride through the National Park on Mjlet.

New England

The southern region of New England is an obvious choice for those who are short on time but big on wishes. No need for long flights, visas or complicated logistics: a New England family yacht charter will see you walk out of your front door, and aboard your luxury private yacht, in record time.

Set sail from Rhode Island, but not before enjoying the 3-mile long Cliff Walk and letting the kids exhaust themselves in the playhouse garden of Hammersmith Farm while you check out the childhood digs of Jacqueline Kennedy. Discover the outstanding beauty of Nantucket Island and its well-known whaling museum, before renting a bicycle to meander through the island at will. Retrace the steps of Jaws (the movie!) in Edgartown, hop on the oldest carousel in America in Oak Bluffs, and spend an entire day deep in the heart of the Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, all the while indulging in hours of fun in the sea kayaking, paddle boarding and jet skiing to your heart’s delight.
