Facts about the Mediterranean
The Mediterranean Sea is surrounded by three continents: Europe from the North, Asia from the East and Africa from the South. It might be a surprising fact that its territory is nearly 2,520,000 km2, and the length of its coastline is close to 46,000 kilometers.

Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel (and the Gaza Strip)
Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco
Larger islands of the Mediterranean:
Cyprus, Rhodes, Lesbos, Crete, the Maltese Islands, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, Menorca, Mallorca, Ibiza. There are several great countries and islands located in the Mediterranean region. If we are planning on renting a boat, there are numerous spots to discover while we can spend plenty of time on the Mediterranean Sea. A wide variety of options are available, and we might want to get informed about all the different opportunities in advance; making a round trip on a yacht we own might be the most exciting activity. The list of our boats available in the Mediterranean region can be found above the information section, under the Mediterranean yacht charter destinations tab.
Geographical features of the Mediterranean
We are dealing with a versatile but contrasting area with dozens of sights that are worth visiting from a geographical point of view. High mountains, rocky shores, waterfalls, forests, and a desert – all the treasures nature has to offer. We can cruise through the shores of several countries on well-organized trips. The area has many ports, the list of which can be found above our information section, under the Mediterranean maps tab.
The climate of the Mediterranean
The region has a Mediterranean climate. Winters are usually mild, but a certain amount of precipitation may be expected during this period. Summers are hot and dry. The mean annual temperature is around 14°C, but even in the coldest months, the temperature never drops below 0°C. During such periods the average temperature is 4°C. This is the reason why the region is a perfect destination during all seasons. We should seek information on the weather of the chosen countries in order to have a smooth holiday. You can find details of the weather of a chosen country above our information section, under the Mediterranean yacht charter destinations tab.
Gastronomy of the Mediterranean
The Mediterranean region’s sailing paradise has especially diverse gastronomy. You can just rent a boat and start exploring the Adriatic while enjoying the culinary adventures at the same time. Besides sailing, swimming, and cultural programs, food is also very important. Seafood is popular, but the fact that the Croatians and the Greek love meat and the Italians are passionate about pasta and delicious wines makes the region even more ideal for lunch or dinner. Visit as many countries as you can, and dive into the local gastronomy.
Travelling in the Mediterranean
As there are several countries and shores located along the Mediterranean Sea, we can choose from various opportunities to reach our destination. Browsing through the flights offered by the different airlines, we may get very cheap tickets if we book on time. We can consider going by car or taking a train between two countries; however, the greatest experience is exploring by renting a boat. This way the travel itself becomes an experience of a lifetime, and we will be able to see places that we couldn’t discover any other way.
