Best Beaches To Visit By Superyacht [Caribbean + Mediterranean]

Marina Nazario | August 27, 2021

Best yachting destinations for visiting the beach

Sun, beach, yacht, food, water sports, family, friends — the perfect vacation doesn’t exis… actually, it does. Chartering a superyacht or traveling on your private yacht means you can enjoy all of the above. Amenities such as a jacuzzi, wet bar, gym, toys, tender, and spacious accommodations are sure to make you and your guests feel comfortable and relaxed. But it’s the excursions that add a fun twist to a relaxing vacation.

As a Denison yacht charter guest, you’ll fill out a preference sheet that covers dietary restrictions, your favorite foods, beverage options, and special requests. The more precise you are, the easier it is for the crew to prepare for your charter. We also recommend letting the captain know which activities you want to do in advance to create an exciting itinerary.

If you’re embarking on a Caribbean or Mediterranean yacht charter, here are 10 beaches you can visit by superyacht. Add these gems to your itinerary.

1. Shipwreck Beach, Greece

Don’t let the name fool you — Shipwreck Beach (aka Navagio Beach) is one of the most famous blankets of sand in the world. A ship ran aground in the 1980s, and since then, the beach became a popular tourist attraction that’s only accessible by boat. Here you get imposing cliffs, teal blue water, and the iconic shipwreck on the beach. It’s a picture-perfect excursion during a Greek yacht charter.

2. Jost Van Dyke, BVI

Jost Van Dyke, BVI

Your BVI yacht charter might travel to Jost Van Dyke where you’ll find the notorious Soggy Dollar Bar (home to the original Painkiller). Schedule time to explore this 4-mile long island where you can bar hop, paddleboard, or sunbathe on white powder sand beaches (there’s no other way to describe it). Enjoy island time — no stress allowed on Jost Van Dyke.

3. Formentera, Spain

Formentera is Ibiza’s well-rested cousin. It’s known for its long beaches, delicious food, national parks, and quiet atmosphere. You can take the tender to Illetes Beach, a sandbar-like beach with soft sand and shallow water on both sides. It’s part of Ses Salines Natural Park, which you can also explore by bike.

4. Palm Island Beach, The Grenadines

Palm Island Beach, The Grenadines

With a name like Palm Island Beach, you know it’s going to be a place worth visiting. This private and peaceful beach is part of the larger Palm Island Resort and Spa in The Grenadines. During a Caribbean yacht charter, stop here for a picnic on the beach followed by a pampering session at the spa. It’s also a great spot to try kitesurfing or windsurfing as the winds are usually in your favor.

5. Kefalonia, Greece

Kefalonia is a beautiful Greek island with caves, beaches, and walking tracks. During your Greek yacht charter, visit Melissani Cave by kayak or tender to see a glowing lake inside a cave surrounded by trees. After this exciting excursion, relax on the beach at Myrtos, enjoy an oceanside lunch, or shop in the markets. You could spend a day exploring Kefalonia.

6. Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island, The Bahamas

There are plenty of reasons to visit Pink Sands beach, if not for the pale pink colored sand, then for the awesome scuba diving. The beach itself is perfect for a quiet swim and sunbathe session, but just off Harbour Island is one of the best dive sites in the Caribbean that’s only accessible by boat. Underwater, you’ll find the largest number of natural wrecks in the Bahamas. It’s well worth a stop during your private yacht charter.

7. Grace Bay Beach, Turks & Caicos

Grace Bay Beach, Turks & Caicos

During a luxury yacht charter in Turks & Caicos, there’s no doubt that you’ll have the opportunity to visit the idyllic Grace Bay Beach. It’s about 3 miles of pristine coastline complemented by teal-colored water. Over the years, Grace Bay ranked on lists for World’s Leading Beach Destination and World’s Best Beaches. While it’s not a private beach, it’s a great place to stop if you want to try windsurfing, parasailing, or snorkeling in paradise.

​​8. Cala Luna, Sardinia, Italy

Cala Luna, Sardinia, Italy

Cala Luna beach is just south of the yachting hub, Porto Cervo, and a perfect destination for a land excursion. This beach is only accessible by boat, so it’s an adventure to get to. Your captain will most likely anchor further out so that you get an impressive look at the cliffs protecting the beach. Take the tender or kayaks to this “moon cove” to snorkel in the clear waters or enjoy a beach picnic.

9. Antigua, Leeward Islands

Leave the yacht in the harbor, and take the tender to explore the beaches of Antigua. Along the coast, there are beautiful and secluded white sand beaches that are inviting you to relax. You can beach hop along the coast of Antigua to stop for lunch, snorkeling, or a sundowner.

10. Guana Cay, Abacos, The Bahamas

Guana Cay is a small island in the center of the Abacos Islands that hosts five miles of beach and coastline. It’s very secluded and quiet, which makes it the perfect spot for loggerhead sea turtles, green sea turtles, and hawksbill sea turtles to nest on the island’s beaches. During a Bahamas yacht charter, visit Baker’s Bay Golf & Ocean Club for a round of golf, lunch, or access to the beach.

Whether you’re on planning a tropical getaway on your private yacht or booking a luxury yacht charter, consider stopping at one of these top beaches in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. As a Denison charter guest, you can speak with your broker or captain to plan excursions. Communicate early and often so that you receive a personalized itinerary, which will lead to the best yachting experience ever. Contact a Denison charter broker to book your next getaway.
