Easter breaks are perfect for sailing holidays whether you choose to be sailing a yacht, catamaran, sailboat or more. Nautal offers a large variety of boat hires and we recommend to book in advance, especially in these top destinations.

1. Greece 

Sail Greece this Easter holiday whether you choose to head to Paros island or the famous and cultured city of Athens. Boat hires in Greece allow you to easily move to the various beaches and explore the Aegean or the Ionian sea. A catamaran rental in Greece is an excellent option for your stay in this destination.

Statue in Athens


Athens is a top destination for the spring and autumn time, especially during the Easter holiday. A luxury yacht charter in Athens allows you to make the most of the interesting Greek culture and visit beaches close by. Athens has amazing museums such as the Museum of Cycladic Art and Museum of Ancient Agora. The Museum of Ancient Agora is an amazing place filled with Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, and Geometric period figurines that were recovered from tombs and wells.
