Where is Below Deck Sailing Yacht filmed? That is the question on fans’ minds every week after watching the Parsifal III sail around one of the most beautiful locations on any of the Below Deck shows.
Over the years, there have been several stunning locations for Below Deck and Below Deck Med. The original shot five seasons in the Caribbean before moving on to Tahiti and Thailand, while the first spin-off has filmed in Greece, Italy, Croatia, and the South of France.
When Bravo decided to add another installment to the hit franchise, finding the perfect location would be crucial. Adding the sailboat element gave the new spin-off a different angle, but fans of the Bravo series need a good location as well.
Where is Below Deck Sailing Yacht filmed?
Below Deck Sailing Yacht is filmed in Corfu, Greece. The crystal clear blue waters create the perfect backdrop for the Parsifal III, the crew, and, of course, the charter guests. Part of the reason fans tune in each week is to see a new piece of the gorgeous Greek Island.
There is no question that the show got it right — picking Corfu as the first place to sail around in the new series. Guests get to visit the most idyllic spots to swim, hang on the beach, fish, and have random excursions. Crew members have the opportunity to explore the fantastic island on their days off — enjoying the Greek cuisine and nightlife.
A little bit about Corfu, Greece
Corfu is an island in the Ionian Sea off of the northwest coast of Greece, filled with rugged mountains and a coastal line featuring the best resorts. It is also a town that is flooded with the whitewashed houses that have become a Greek staple.

The island has a little something for everyone, from idyllic beaches, to museums, to historic sights, to green hills for hiking that will give visitors the best 360-degree views of Corfu. It is known as one of the greenest islands in the country. Olives are a big part of Greek cuisine, and Corfu features over two million olive trees, which adds to the lushness of the island as well as its authentic food.
The Below Deck boat isn’t the only one to dock in Corfu. The island is a popular stop for cruise ships as well. Tourists are prone to visit the old and new fortresses — which have the most iconic views of the island. The Church of St. Spyridon — named after the patron saint of Corfu — is also a must-see spot. Its red bell tower makes it hard to miss.
Last but not least, Corfu features some of the best Greek food in the country. The island is filled with mouthwatering restaurants that feature authentic drink and cuisine. Plus, the views from Corfu are truly picture perfect.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht airs Mondays at 9/8c on Bravo.
