Travellizy and Sailica yacht booking service picked up seven fabulously beautiful locations on the Mediterranean, which you should definitely see with your own eyes, if you are going to sail.


Melissani Cave Lake


2 km north-west of the town of Sami, on the east coast of the Greek island of Kefalonia, there is Melissani karst cave. About four thousand years ago, its dome collapsed, and now, there is an amazingly beautiful underground lake at a depth of 20 meters.

Speleo-divers love this place for the bizarre forms of underwater karst canals. The ancient Greeks believed, that nymphs lived in Melissani. And this is not surprising: crystal clear turquoise waters reflect the walls of the cave and thus create a truly fabulous atmosphere.

The place is not only a home for sea turtles: graceful humpback whales, devil fish and dolphins can be found in these waters.


The city of Trapani in Sicily


Miniature Trapani isn't well known to a wide audience, so you can find here discrete and charming beaches. After enjoying the coast, you can visit the city and take a look at the cathedrals, basilicas and beautiful villas with surrounding greenery. After walking enough through twisted streets, go back to the embankment and visit one of the fish restaurants to get pleasure from Sicilian wine and octopus salad, shrimps and shellfish.


Island of Vis


Vis, a small island in Croatia, is perfect for those, who want to get rid of noise and tourist crowds. One of the beaches of the island - “Stiniva” - got the title of the “Best Beach in Europe” in 2016. And all this thanks to the cozy coves, white pebbles and high picturesque rocks.

If you dream about it, you should try yachting.

Seven rare places in the Mediterranean are just a few scenarios of how bright and useful to relax in an unforgettable trip on a sailing yacht. You just have to choose your route and go on a trip towards maritime areas.
