When the yachting season arrives in Europe, many people take full advantage of it. If you have tried exploring Europe in a boat or would like to do it again, you should know where to moor and dock.

Boat riding can be as enjoyable as playing slots at kasyno polskie. You can have endless fun as you hop from one sea to the other. Europe boasts the Atlantic Ocean and nine seas. Moreover, Europe offers more than 900 seaports. What this means to you is that you can get a worthwhile place to anchor your Yacht. You should try the following yacht ports in Europe when you start sailing. 

1. Port Vauban in Antibes

This is one of the biggest and earliest yacht ports on the continent. There are up to 1642 berths, and 250 of these are reserved for tourists. The size of the boat is not a problem as this port can host a 170m long yacht. Port Vauban has a fascinating coastal village lying between Monaco and Saint Tropez. There is an untamed beach where you can sunbathe lazily and later visit the lovely Eilenroc Gardens, Thuret Park, and/or Explora Park.

2. Port Hercule in Monaco
