The Boatbookings team would like to send everyone a very Happy New Year and best wishes for 2014! With so much to look forward to it’s never too early to be thinking about your holiday plans for the year. We’ve compiled a very simple list of things to ensure an unforgettable year of memories with family and friends.
1. Visit Sardinia!
Following a visit to Sardinia in 2013, Charles and Tom from our team cannot recommend it enough. Whether you’re looking to sail the beautiful east coast and experience the breathtaking National Park of La Maddalena, see the picturesque turquoise waters of Carloforte or enjoy the buzzing hot spot of Porto Cervo there’s something for you! If you’re stuck for where to see this summer, we guarantee Sardinia will provide you with an unforgettable charter holiday.
SAFRA is a sleek and sexy Azimut 86S, perfect for seeing Sardinia in style!
2. Book your Spring Break and Winter Vacations to get the top picks in the Caribbean!
With an ever-growing demand for yachts over the two busiest holiday periods in the Caribbean, the Boatbookings team recommend getting in early to gain access to the best yachts available. Whether you’re looking for a bareboat charter, crewed catamaran or luxury motor yacht someone on the team has the best knowledge and experience of cruising grounds and boats to help you fully experience the magic of this area.
There’s no better way to experience the Caribbean that by catamaran, and there’s no better catamaran than Lagoon 52 FREEDOM!
Following on from our recent post on exploring the relatively unknown Spanish Virgin Islands of Vieques and Culebra, this addition seeks to demonstrate a few more reasons why you should try this gorgeous destination for your next vacation. We have already seen that Vieques has one of the best bioluminescent bays in the world, but what else does this small island have to offer? If you’re are interested in looking for your very own private beach, Vieques is the island for you.
To the west of the typical Caribbean town of Esperanza, you will find a stretch of beaches that would make the perfect postcard. The beaches at Sun Bay provide guests with white sandy beaches, excellent snorkelling conditions and if you’re lucky, you will have the opportunity to see one of the islands wild horses. However, we thought that the beaches past Navio in the National Reserve were some of the best on the island. Take a luxury picnic down to Caracas Beach and spend all afternoon soaking up the Caribbean rays!
If you prefer to
keep active on your vacation and think of yourself as an explorer, Vieques has so much to offer. From the old sugar mills to the forests which stretch into the former military areas, you are bound to find a host of exciting wildlife and walking trails which will fascinate you for hours. Why not head down to the Vieques’ version of Stonehenge and see the islands most famous archaeological site. The site is located opposite Sun Bay and was the source of a corpse which is said to be around 4000 years old!
There is so much on this majestic island to keep you intrigued and fascinated for days and makes a great stop on your charter around the Caribbean. If you are looking for a vacation that includes fantastic weather, beaches, snorkelling and history, you really should try Puerto Rico. We recommend flying into San Juan and exploring the forts of Old San Juan. Then you can head down to the eastern coastal town of Fajardo and pick up a stunning monohull or catamaran for your charters around Vieques, Culebra and beyond.

Vieques and Culebra are two islands off the coast of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean Sea. These two islands combine together under the Spanish Virgin Islands and are found to the east of St Thomas and the USVI. Unlike the USVI and the BVI, the Spanish Virgin Islands are pretty unknown on the tourist map, providing charterers with an unparalleled experience,
combining the worlds finest beaches and scenery.
Vieques features some of the best beaches and conservation areas in the Caribbean. One of our best recommendations for your time on Vieques would be to head down to Mosquito Bay, which is allegedly the best bioluminescent bay in the world. So what should you expect from this experience? The bay is full of microorganisms which spark into life whenever they are moved, providing an almost neon light through the water. Even if you’re not the sporty type, we cannot recommend this experience highly enough and should be seen by all!
Charter a luxury catamaran from the eastern coast of Puerto Rico and explore these beautiful islands. We cannot recommend one of our Lagoon catamarans from Fajardo highly enough, providing guests with the very highest standards of luxury and comfort. Take your 10 closest friends or family members on a Lagoon 450 and be one of the first to explore these wonderful islands.
