How to Spend Your Time On-Shore

Written by Marin @Danielis on December 05, 2019 in Sailing Stories

If you’re planning a yachting trip with some interesting stops at ports you have never been to before, then you’ll definitely want to make the most of your time on-shore to have some interesting experiences and get to see the best of what these destinations have to offer.

While exploring is always fun, it can be a good idea to do a bit of research about the places along the coast that you plan to go to so that you can be sure to have tickets for things you’d like to do, and be aware in advance of the top things to see. Here are some ideas of things you can plan somewhat in advance to do on-shore:

Check out a Hot Live Event

Having an event to go to can make the destination feel like as much of a special part of your vacation as the time you spend sailing on your yacht, so it can be a great idea to check out what is going on in the places you’ll be going to and get some tickets lined up. Sporting events, concerts, live shows, stand up comedy and all kinds of other great performances can be great things to add to your itinerary, or you can look for some culture by going to an exhibition or theatrical play. Check out for ideas and tickets!

Find a Fantastic Restaurant

Almost every town and city has restaurants worthy of talking about, and so while you are planning where to go on shore during your sailing vacation, it can be a really good idea to look at restaurant review sites and think about which places you’d like to try in each location. This can not only make sure you don’t miss the most interesting places but will also mean you can make reservations in advance if you need to. Whether you want to try local specialties or check out the most popular places in town, knowing what your options are and what people have said about different restaurants before you go on shore can mean you have the best possible experience.

Do Some Sightseeing

Even places that aren’t especially famous have their beauty spots and historical places, so do a bit of research to make sure you know what the most notable things to see are, and then head out to look for them! You can get some great photos and see the places, architecture, and monuments the people who live in the town you’re visiting are most proud of, as well as learn some interesting history.

When you’re sailing around the coast, it can feel like you never really get as much time as you’d like to really experience places. However, by doing a bit of research in advance, you can really make the most of your time on-shore at different places and get a real feel for what makes each location unique, as well as having some fun times and making some pleasant memories.
