boat trips

Sailing can be such fun, there is nothing like being out in the fresh air sailing along the Mediterranean on the Costa Tropical, the Costa de Almeria and the Costa del Sol, or the Atlantic Ocean of the Costa de la Luz.

Some companies offer luxury yacht and boat hire, a luxury sailing concierge, who can arrange almost everything from sunset cruises with fine dining to trips to Morocco and Portugal. All in all it's great to see Andalucia from the sea.
