Just a short distance from Benidorm is the beautiful Bay of Altea, and its picturesque fishing harbour where you can enjoy the cool ocean breeze on a Sailing Trip. Many of us during a holiday in Benidorm have been on a boat trip to Benidorm Island or Tabarca Island, but it is not often you get the chance to try your hand at sailing. Being able to harness the wind and work the rigging’s to optimise your speed and change direction is quite challenging, but also very rewarding when you feel the yacht effortlessly, and silently slicing through the water.
Located in Benidorm City centre, Marco Polo Expediciones offer a half day sailing trip in and around the Bay of Altea. When taking a sailing trip with Marco Polo you have the chance of enjoying a full day trip by picking up one of their bicycles and exploring the countryside around Altea. Bicycles are offered to all passengers free of charge and the bike ride to Altea takes around 30 minutes. Alternatively, passengers can drive to Altea and meet the skipper in the harbour. Passengers can choose between a morning or afternoon sailing trip.
Sailing Altea Bay
For the morning trip you will meet at 10:00 in Altea harbour and the afternoon trip is at 15:00. You will board the Tucana 28 sailing yacht which has a maximum capacity for 7 passengers. Your skipper will take you out into the bay where you can get involved and learn the basic principles and techniques of sailing, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful views and refreshing sea breeze. After a couple of hours sailing through the Bay of Altea and picturesque Sierra Helada Natural Park, the skipper will set anchor for passengers to enjoy a cooling swim before starting the return journey to the harbour.
