Saint-Tropez is known more for its international yachting lifestyle than its authentic French culture: a honey-pot for celebrity beach clubs, world-class regattas and luxury boutiques. But beyond this sparkling veneer, there are secret beach cafes and snorkelling spots to be uncovered in and around the Côte d'Azur jewel. Balancing the best of rugged Provence and Riviera dazzle, the Gulf and its environs are blessed with as much tranquillity and authenticity as you’re willing to seek out. What remains at the heart of it all? The sea. In all its worshipped turquoise glory.
An epic voyage spanning over 7000 nautical miles, we follow photographer Stuart M Boliter to bring you to our favourite destinations in Panama and across the Pacific: luminescent turquoise waters, world class surfing, impossibly white beaches and myriad tiny islands teeming with sea life.
If armed with fearless curiosity and a sailing yacht as a chariot, the world opens up in unimaginable ways. Taking to the open seas to chase the unfamiliar can lead to discoveries otherwise inaccessible. Considering the excitement and hunger for adventure that grip today’s intrepid sailors, a getaway to islands untrodden could be the perfect antidote to a year spent in lockdown.
