All major discoveries in history started onboard of a ship – off to new shores, off to new ports. According to this motto, we set out to explore five showcase marinas located on some of the world’s not only most picturesque, but also strategically important coastlines. It is not about mega-ports and their big logistics, it is the hidden marinas, from where we open up the view to a grand panorama discovering their backwaters. Wild, untouched nature, the ever vibrant ancient culture, and unique biographies await us in: Punta del Este, a fascinating seaside resort in Uruguay.
