6 Days, from Sag Harbor to Nantucket
Day 1Sag Harbor
Sag Harbor offers pristine beaches, breathtaking ocean views, historic homes, antique shops, hideaway inns and gourmet eateries in a truly unique setting of century old streets.
Lunch or dinner at Sunset Beach Hotel and Restaurant feels more like St. Tropez than Eastern Long Island, making Sag Harbor an excellent point of embarkation for an extended New England Yacht Charter.
Day 2The Hamptons
The villages and hamlets which make up The Hamptons to east of New York’s Long Island provide the perfect style
and finesse for a luxury yacht charter getaway.
Quaint boutiques, antique shops, art galleries and gourmet restaurants abound. Choose from chic celebrity filled South Hampton, beach perfect East Hampton, and laidback West Hampton.
Day 3Block Island
Known for excellent cycling, hiking, sailing, fishing, surfing, and beaches, Block Island was named by The Nature Conservancy as one of the twelve sites in the list of “Last Great Places” in the Western Hemisphere.
Approximately 20 percent of the island is set aside for conservation. Visit the Mohegan Bluffs, just walking distance from the Southeast Lighthouse. The bluffs are the site of a pre-colonial battle between the invading Mohegan, and the native Niantic in which the Mohegan were driven off the edge of the tall cliffs to their
deaths on the beach below. A long staircase of over one hundred steps leads to the bottom of these clay cliffs and looks out over the Atlantic. A visit to Block Island is not complete without a stop for a bowl of New England Clam Chowder at the National Hotel.
A contemporary city with a rich yachting heritage, Newport has something for almost everyone - from interesting shops and restaurants, museums, art and jazz festivals, to beautiful beaches, ideal sailing conditions, historic mansions, and the world famous “Cliff Walk.”
Visit the Breakers, the grandest of Newport’s summer “cottages” and a symbol of the Vanderbilt’s social and financial preeminence in the turn of the century America.
Day 5Martha's Vineyard
The Beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard is a world apart, offering a vacation ambiance unlike any other. The seaside villages attract year round visitors to their stunning beaches, gingerbread houses, bountiful recreational activities and unique New England Charm.
Martha’s Vineyard boasts the oldest working carousel in the country, complete with 22 wooden horses with real horse hair manes. If traveling with kids, you might also consider taking a tour of the Farm Institute, where you’ll see Milk Goats, explore lush vegetable and flower gardens, and see lambs, piglets, and calves. No trip to the Vineyard is complete without stopping for some Murdick’s fudge.
With class, culture, and undeniable style, the island of Nantucket is located 30 miles out at sea off the coast of southern Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Known for its pristine beaches and cobblestone streets lined with historic homes, Nantucket offers a glimpse into yesteryear.
Famous for its film and wine festivals and 4th of July fireworks celebrations, Nantucket is one of the most unique, and visually stunning places in the world. Originally a booming whaling port, Nantucket has been named a National Historic District and little has changed architecturally since the 17th century, with seaside cottages and old fashioned lamps still lining the streets.
