Planning your next travel expedition? Why not think about hiring a boat and exploring some of Europe’s most intriguing island?

Here’s some of the places at the top of our travel wish-list:

Isola la Maddalena – Italy

Isola la Maddalena is one of about 60 islands that form the La Maddalena Archipelago near Sardinia. Isola la Maddalena is renowned for its pristine beaches and clear waters, but if you’re into history then the island’s Roman ruins are worth exploring. The island’s sheltered covers make it ideal for even inexperienced sailors.

Pantelleria – Italy

One of the Mediterranean’s less famous vacation destinations, you’ll find this small island between Sicilty and Tunisia. It’s a rugged and sparsely populated volcanic terrain.

Kastellorizo – Greece

One of the smallest islands within the Dodecanese archipelago, Kastllorizo is easily reached from Rhodes. The island’s blue grotto rivals the more famous version in Capri.

Salina – Italy

Part of the volcanic Aeolian Islands, Salina is close to Naples and Messina. Expect traditional village houses, set amid olive groves and lemon trees.

Ile de Bendor – France

Privately owned for decades, Ile de Bendor is now a discrete and secluded island holiday destination.

Meganisi – Greece

Nestled within the Ionian islands, off the coast of Lefkas, Meganisi is a particularly popular destination for walkers. The quayside tavernas are a great way to soak up the island atmosphere.
