Enjoy a Yacht Vacation Week


The Arrábida Natural Park, a top holiday spot in Portugal

Vacation Trip to Arrabida

The Arrábida Natural Park is located south of Lisbon and is undisputedly one of the most beautiful holiday destinations in Portugal. Impressive limestone cliffs, covered with lush green vegetation, meet clear & bright blue water. The nature park in Arrábida is not only a popular recreation area for people from Lisbon. It is also home to rare animal and bird species, including naturally over 30 dolphins. These are not camera-shy, as they like to swim into the boat's bow or stern wave to play. Arrábida offers a balance of relaxation and activities. So, for those who don't want to spend the whole day chilling on the boat, fear not, there's plenty to explore! In addition to water activities like snorkeling or exploring water caves and hidden beaches, there are also really great activities on land: like climbing, golfing, paragliding, or a horseback riding trip on the beach. There's certainly something for everyone.

Best Yacht for a Week

  • Catamaran (Beds up to 8 Guests)
    A true wonder in terms of comfort and space, representing our most likely choice.

  • Yacht Princess (Beds up to 2 Guests)
    The Yacht Princess also performs very well and scores here with extra space thanks to its flybridge.
