Where to catch the last of the summer sun in Europe...

By Editorial Team   11 September 2018

If you are looking for a last minute yachting vacation, there is still time to make the most of the sunshine. We have created a list of the best places to go to catch those final rays of summer…

For those wanting to miss the crowds and enjoy popular destinations in peace and quiet, a luxury yacht charter in September, October and early November is a fantastic time to get away. Countries in the Mediterranean such as Greece, Italy and Spain still have temperatures well into the mid 20s so you can still top up that tan.

Greece

The beautiful islands in Greece are perfect to visit by superyacht charter. Journey from the Sporades Islands down to Crete, the southernmost tip of the Aegean sea. A seductive destination with an abundance of secluded beaches and historical sites, you’ll find the highest temperatures in the Dodecanse islands, in particular Kos, which averages eight hours of sunshine in October and highs of 26°C.

Turkey

Located in the eastern Mediterranean region, Turkey is always going to be a great choice for some warmth as winter sets in. The weather is still a pleasant 26°C in October and it’s the perfect time to take a luxury yacht charter around Turkey for some rest and relaxation.

Begin your journey in Marmaris, an idyllic setting for an incredible journey along the turquoise coast, where you can discover hidden coves, rustic villages, palaces and Byzantine treasures.

Cyprus

Nestled between Turkey and Greece, Cyprus is a fantastic option to stop off for those looking for the last of the summer sun in a Mediterranean Yacht Charter. Full of unspoilt coastlines, golden beaches, mountain ranges and even historical castles and abbeys, the third largest island in the Mediterranean sea enjoys temperatures of around 26.7°C in October and around ten hours of sunshine. The sea also remains lovely and warm at around 24°C so it is perfect for those looking to enjoy snorkelling and watersports. 

Italy

Cinque Terre, Italy

Where else but on the Italian Riviera can you island-hop past towns rich in culture, history and beauty? Take a look at our Italian Hotspots itinerary for a yacht charter in Italy and you could be travelling from Antibes to Palermo, taking in Cinque Terre - five incredibly picturesque villages nestling on the coast or eating Gelato and shopping in Forte dei Marmi, a charming resort. The Italian sun should be sizzling down on you as the capital city, Rome still averages eight hours of sun and temperatures of 22.4°C in October. A scorchingly great choice.

The Balearics, Spain

Formentera Beach
Formentera, Spain: A beach on Formentera, an island off of Ibiza in Spain.

Menorca, Majorca and Ibiza, collectively known as The Balearic islands off the southern coast of Spain have long been a favourite for both summer and winter holidays with temperatures still reaching 24°C in October.

The pretty islands are ideal for a yacht charter as you can enjoy the best of all three. From the fortresses and ancient churches in Menorca, the picturesque warm coastline of Majorca to the jet set crowd in Ibiza, these islands are famed for a reason. Whether you want crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches, culture, history, shopping, nightlife or luxury restaurants...the Balearics have it all.
