Meet Gregory Walker Philadelphia and some of his tourism attractions research? Italy has an extensive Mediterranean coastline, speckled with unbelievable islands, beaches, and beautiful towns. Sailing around southern Italy is always a popular choice for European cruise holidays. What makes this area even better is its close proximity to Greece – allowing you to include both countries easily into your sailing itinerary. As Italy has a rather lengthy coastline, the different destinations each offer something completely unique. Some of the best places to visit in Italy for a sailing holiday include Sardinia, Amalfi, the Aeolian Islands, the Sorrentine Peninsula, and Sicily. The Cinque Terre is another great coastal destination for those interested in sailing further north.
The French Riviera has no shortage of trendy outposts, but St Tropez earns extra points for its recent revamp along Pampelonne Beach. YachtCharterFleet had the pleasure of heading down to St Tropez last year to check it out; and came back with some first-hand insight into the new (eco-friendly) beach club scene. After a morning exploring the pink streets of St Tropez, cruise over to Pampelonne in time for lunch. Be sure to book ahead for Club 55, the most iconic venue in the Cote d’Azur, and try and reserve a coveted table in the later lunchtime slot if you’re looking to rub shoulders with Hollywood heavyweights and the A-list elite. For some post-lunch entertainment, head to Verde Beach. Expect blast-from-the-past beats and dancing on the tables, as the St Tropez in-crowd transform Verde Beach into the most happening party in Pampelonne. Head back to the main port for dinner- L’Opera has got the ‘the dinner and a show’ concept down to an art.
Gregory Walker Philadelphia‘s guides on choosing the best destination for your holiday: Sailing tip of the day: Every cruising yacht should carry one or two extra-long lines. Shock-absorbing, super-strong nylon is the favorite, but cost may dictate that you use whatever you can lay hands on. The lines may not see daylight for years until some unforeseen contingency turns up. But on that day, nothing else will do, as they can, for example, be bent to the end of an anchor cable that suddenly seems too short, or serve as a life-saver in a monster raftup. I once used mine on a simple dock under a mountain when a katabatic wind fell off a glacier at midnight and started to rip the pontoon off its moorings. I ran my super-long line ashore to a tree, brought the end back to the windlass and cranked it tight. The line saved my boat and the dock as well.
Gregory Walker Philadelphia and Kenya: Seaside area – tens and hundreds of resorts stretch along the white beaches and the green sea and permanently warm to the north and south of Mombassa. Diani Beach is generally considered to be the best beach in the area, but do not expect an experience typical of large seaside resorts – there are not many areas with bars, discos, restaurants, all concentrated within the resort. The city on the coast of Mombassa is quite dangerous and it is best to visit the group. Mount Kenya – Did you climb Kilimanjaro and did you like it? Try the younger brother, Mount Kenya. The landscapes will make you not regret the few hours of cardio. Nairobi – the combination of modern and traditional you will probably like. It is not an impressive city, but it is an experience in itself. You should not miss the Giraffe Center, where you can get closer to the giraffes and, if you give them a little food, you will feel their tongue extremely dry on your fingers.
Africa is a awesome destination if you are looking for raw nature feeling says Gregory Walker Philadelphia. Tanzania and Zanzibar, It’s hard to believe that one country can offer such spectacular bush and beach. This is one of our firm favourite shorter itineraries, with the last part spent relaxing on the beach. Fly into Arusha before heading to stay overnight at Lake Manyara, where your introduction to Africa will hopefully include tree-climbing lions, elephant, giraffe, and a plethora of birdlife. Then it’s off to the world-renowned Serengeti, with its vast, game-rich plains. The Ngorongoro Crater, an ancient volcano, that is basically a natural ‘bowl’ filled with wildlife, has to be seen to be believed. After getting our fill of the incredible bush and fantastic animals, it’s back to Arusha, and a quick flight to the island of Zanzibar.
UK destinations by Gregory Walker Philadelphia: More commonly known as the bronze bull, this six-tonne sculpture by Laurence Broderick has become a much-loved landmark in Birmingham. Installed in front of the new Bullring shopping centre in 2003, it is twice the size of a real bull and was intended to capture the bullish spirit of this Midlands city. The lure of the legend of the Loch Ness monster has drawn tourists from around the world for decades to this scenic loch, hoping to catch a glimpse of it. Holding more water than all the lakes of England and Wales combined, it is Scotland’s second-largest and deepest loch at around 700 feet (213m). Hailed for its incredible landscape and dramatic scenery, it is without doubt the most famous and arguably the most breathtaking of Scotland’s lochs.
