If you go on holiday and visit a beautiful marina surrounded by lavish yachts, clear blue waters, high-end stores, and upmarket restaurants, and you don’t Instagram it – did it even happen?

comparethemarket.com has compiled a list of the top 10 most Instagrammed marinas across the world away, along with top tips for holidays abroad, for those in need of a little inspiration.

According to the findings, the top 10 most Instagrammable marinas are as follows:

Taking the crown is Dubai Marina. Known as a picturesque spot of skyscrapers, blue waters, and swanky restaurants, it’s no surprise that #dubaimarina has received over 3.9m posts on the gram. In fact, searches in the UK alone for ‘Dubai weekend’2 have increased by +600% over the past 30 days, giving the impression that people are planning a visit following the lift in restrictions.

Taking second place is Marina del Rey, a seafront community in LA with the port being North America’s largest man-made small-craft harbour. Coming in third is Marina di Porto Cervo in Sardinia, Italy. Famous for its lavish parties and nightlife, the surrounding area features a mix of unspoiled natural beauty and modern facilities, such as high-end boutiques and clubs. 

Other spots that missed the top 10 include Montauk Yacht Club in New York, with #montaukyachtclub featuring in 7,354 posts, and Porto Hercules in Monaco which has earned 7,228 posts for #porthercules.

Josh Daniels, head of travel at comparethemarket.com, comments: “Currently, UK searches3 for destinations such as Dubai, Cyprus, and Greece is on the rise, as potential travellers go on the hunt for their next destination as early as next month.

“For those hoping to travel, it’s sensible for all travellers to be fully insured before they go overseas and check exactly what their policy covers for peace of mind, especially if they’re planning to spend a lot of money on their trip.”
