Sailing Holidays

One of the best ways to see the thousands of beautiful miles of coastline around Britain and the rest of Europe has to be by boat.

A sailing holiday offers the relaxation and space of the open water combined with the chance to learn or improve your sailing skills and fall in love with life aboard a ship, yacht or sail boat.

To learn more about sailing, have a look at the International Sailing Federation and the RYA, both of which feature a wealth of information on this exciting activity.

Island hopping in Greece, discovering the delights and ancient sites of the Turkish Coast and chartering a yacht in the Hebrides and taking in Scotland's rugged scenery are just some of the great options for a spectacular sailing holiday.

Have a look at our selection of the best sailing holidays that you can reach without flying.
