Tagomago Island – Ibiza – a most exclusive private island
Tagomago is one of the finest private islands in the Mediterranean – and surely the most perfectly located. For this idyllic, luxurious retreat is just a few minutes by boat from the playground of Ibiza, with its beaches, fine-dining and world-famous nightlife. And if you like caving, you will find a large number to explore here. The other plus is crystal clear water which is great for diving and snorkeling, water-sports, sports-fishing.
Tagomago is a paradise for divers. From May until September the water temperature is between 20 to 28 °C and you will find huge shoals of barracudas, small fishes and even sharks. The Western Mediterranean underwater world stands out for its impressive landscape with deep cliffs and dramatic rock formations.
With its private jetty and mooring, Tagomago is a 600,000 sqm (148-acre) private island – the ideal destination for guests seeking absolute privacy with state-of-the-art luxury alongside all the glamorous buzz of Ibiza.
Navagio Beach – Greece
If you want a beach that is completely unspoiled, this is it. There are no hotels, restaurants, bars, or tourist attractions. Nothing but beautiful white sand and some of the clearest water in the world! A perfect day away from a hectic travel schedule in heavily populated Greek cities and towns. The iconic image of a rusted shipwreck washed up on the white sands of the turquoise Navagio Beach drew us to the island of Zakynthos in search of the so called Shipwreck Beach. Navagio is one of the most beautiful and photographed beaches in the world and visitors flock to both its shores and the cliffs above for breathtaking views.
Galešnjak, Croatia – Heart Island – Island of love
Also known as “Lover’s Island”, Galešnjak Island lies a third of a mile off the coast of Turanj, Croatia. At just 164 feet wide at its widest point, this heart-shaped isle serves as a hotspot for Valentine’s Day boat rides and spectacular aerial views. Once you are on this small, shrubby island, uninhabited the biggest part of the year, you wonder what’s the big fuss, since it’s not very different from the rest of the copious islets of the Dalmatian archipelago. What makes Galešnjak unique is its shape, one of those rare pieces of art that only nature, the greatest artist of all, can create. Galešnjak is one of the few islands on this planet that have the shape of a heart. The island is owned by a local family but you can visit it in the summer if you can afford a yacht charter in Croatia. There is a pier on the north, as well as olive and fig trees and even a few rabbits.
The Restaurant – LA GAVITELLA, Italy – Amalfi Coast
It may seem like a lot of effort just to get lunch, but once you get here, you might want to stick around for dinner. Getting to La Gavitella, part of the Cala Gavitella Beach Club, set on a spectacular cliff on Italy’s Amalfi Coast, involves a private boat. The restaurant serves simple Mediterranean-style food with an emphasis on good cooking, good local wine and tradition. If you would like to spend a romantic evening La Gavitella is a great choice for a moonlight dinner by the sea and sweet mandolin music.
The Ancient Wonder Simena Sunken City, Kekova, Turkey
The ancient Lycian sunken city of Simena is often referred to as Kekova-Simena. The city is a charming mix of ancient, medieval and modern history making it interesting as well as beautiful. In ancient times Simena was a small fishing village and was later an outpost of the Knights of Rhodes. The intriguing submerged ruins of Simena are said to date back as far as the 2nd century AD, when the city was hit by earthquakes. Part of the ruins can be seen above the water, with more of the foundations visible beneath the surface of the sea.
Spiaggia Rosa (Budelli), Italy – Pink Island
In the extreme north of Sardinia, near the Bocche di Bonifacio, among the islands of the national park, there is an inaccessible paradise, a mirage to be admired from afar but which reveals the wild nature of one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. The beach owes its name to Miniacina Miniacea, a shell only found in the Archipelago of Maddalena that gives local sand an exotic, coral-like pink colour. Bright pink, orange and salmon-tinted bits of crushed coral, crystals, fossils and dead marine creatures such as microscopic prawns’ skeletons cover the beach, giving the shore a sparkling strawberry hue similar to that of the sun when it starts to set. For many years the beach was not accessible to visitors. Even today nobody is allowed to swim nearby the beach, but you can visit it and have a glimpse of its mystique from your private yacht.
