A meeting point of culture, social life and nature, the Balearic Islands are very well known as a place to have fun and enjoy nature. Transparent water and shores with delicate colours make this archipelago a perfect destination for a luxury yacht charter. The archipelago is formed by Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. Each island offers its own unique emotions and experiences.
Also known as the ‘islands of never-ending spring’, the Balearics are located off the Spanish coast, where the weather and the temperate climate guarantee almost 300 days of sunshine throughout the year.
Mallorca is the largest island of the archipelago. It is famous for its wonderful beaches full of life, as well as for its history. Palma de Mallorca, the main urban centre of the island, is a skein of alleys and narrow streets, but it is also the centre of nightlife with many bars and discos. For a relaxing day with a special dive, we suggest you stop at Cala Formentor, one of the most beautiful beaches on this island. You will be amazed during your yacht charter experience, how much you fall in love with this spectacular place. Also not to be missed is the island of Cabrera, which is home to a National Nature Park.
Tiny and welcoming, Menorca is also known as ‘the windy island’. Characterised by lovely beaches with white sand and a myriad of hidden coves, this island invites you to immerse yourself in its crystal clear water. It is also perfect for lovers of windsurfing and kite surfing. Menorca offers many attractive bays, including those accessible from the yacht, such as Cala Sa Nau. Other more isolated bays can be discovered and explored with the tender.
Ibiza and Formentera, are the smaller islands of the Spanish archipelago. Ibiza, the most beloved island, is a hub of international nightlife and hosts the most exclusive clubs and discos. Its beautiful beaches, like Pacha beach and Titos beach, are animated with music and entertainment. Staying in Ibiza on board a charter yacht allows you to enjoy the best of this lively island, with its beaches of fine sand, turquoise waters and wild nightlife.
Formentera, unlike Ibiza, is the perfect destination for those who love unspoiled nature, dedicating their holiday to relaxation and tranquility, featuring Caribbean-like beaches and crystal clear water. It’s essential to visit the Trucadors peninsula, one of the most fascinating and elegant beaches on the island. The coasts of Formentera alternate between small hidden bays and larger beaches, offering a real paradise for visitors who are looking for sun, nature and peace. Not to be missed are the “calas“, natural rocky coves where you can escape and immerse yourself in a natural setting, not easy to reach from the mainland, they are easily reached from your charter yacht.
