The Most Popular Yachting Destinations in the Balearics

Spain’s dazzling Balearic Islands offer luxury yacht charter guests a bevvy of unique experiences that they’ll find nowhere else on earth. This extraordinary archipelago, the largest in all of Europe, comprises over 150 islands, only five of which are inhabited.

The most famous and popular yachting destinations in the Balearics are a trio of islands that arguably need very little introduction. Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza are indeed three of the most coveted Spanish destinations of all and undoubtedly the primary port of call for anyone who wishes to experience Spanish island life at its very best.

 

Mallorca – the largest and most diverse of all the Balearics

Revered for its enchanting interior blanketed by dramatic mountains and immensely charming converted farmhouses, Mallorca is the one Balearic treasures that offer the greatest choice of experiences so many yacht charter guests will make it a prime point of their journey’s focus.

The coast is framed by swaths of glistening sandy beaches and dotted with an abundance of incredible caves – finding secret remote corners to enjoy the spoils of your yacht is child’s play, down this corner of Spanish paradise.

 

Capital Palma

Mallorca’s main city and prime port of call, Palma, is home to the largest concentration of charter yachts in Europe and a particularly charming historic quarter that culture-vultures will love. This is the best and most convenient springboard for Balearic luxury yacht charters.

Spectacular views

The one island that truly warrants a few more days, Mallorca is home to the highest peak on the Balearics (Puig Major), a fantastic maze of well-established cycling and hiking trails, spectacular ancient towns and local culinary specialities that’ll have you weak at the knees. For upmarket indulgences and ancient discoveries, Mallorca has you well and truly covered.

Speechless beaches

Yet it’s Mallorca’s world-renowned beaches that leave all visitors speechless: the turquoise of the seas and the sparkling shine of the sand are simply out of this world. Inhabited for over 9,000 years and oozing the kind of cultural and historical mélange befitting a European Queen, Mallorca really is the Balearic jewel by which all others are measured.

Menorca – the quiet and dazzling Balearics achiever

Mallorca’s smaller sister, in everything from size to prominence, leads many to think she is somehow lesser. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Menorca may indeed be the second-largest island in the Balearic, but what many prospective yacht charter guests do not know is that it boasts more miles of sandy beaches than Mallorca and Ibiza, combined.

Capital Mahon

It’s capital city, Mahon, is an enchanting gem and boasts one of the world’s longest natural harbours – an arresting spectacle that takes the breath away even from the most discerning and experienced sailors.

Unique history

Menorca also plays host to prehistoric ruins and boasts a most definite British influence thanks to its unique history. A gin and tonic sundowner, down these delightful parts, is part and parcel of local tradition.

Sheer raw beauty

As the least developed of all the inhabited Balearic Islands, Menorca shines through her sheer raw beauty and lashings of exclusive and mind-boggling beaches. The quietest and most rewarding achiever on Balearic luxury yacht charters? Yes, you could say that.

Ibiza – the Balearic gem that hides the most startling surprises for yacht charter guests

The European party island to end all party islands, Ibiza is mostly renowned as the one destination in the Balearics where you can indulge in all manner of hedonistic pleasures. Whilst this is still the case in some respects, Ibiza has all but grown right up in recent years. And besides, there has always been a side of the island left undiscovered by mass tourism.

Dreamy Ibiza

The southern Ibizan coastline is a haven of tranquillity, with innumerable desolate bays just begging to be claimed by lucky guests aboard Balearic luxury yacht charters. On a private yacht, you will have the best of both worlds: you can easily visit the bustling hubs of Ibiza Town but also retreat to the dreamiest isolated coves to feel you have this haven all to yourself.

Breathtaking sunsets

Aside from the glamorous night-spots, boutiques and world-class restaurants, Ibiza hides a quiet and rewarding side, where sunrises are breathtaking, sunsets divine, and chances for copious enjoyment of your yacht’s water toys nearly endless

Formentera & The Outer Balearic Islands

For those who crave anonymity and quietude, the Balearic Outer Islands are ideal. These are the more than 140 islands that boast no permanent population and are visited only by private yacht.

Formentera

The smallest of the main inhabited islands, Formentera is a laid-back gem that attracts plenty of expats but not many tourists. Accessible only by boat (which keeps the fly-in and fly-out holiday crowds at bay) Formentera is a southern belle like few others. Including her and her uninhabited islets is a must for nature-lovers on Balearic yacht charter itineraries.

Outer Balearic Islands

For those who crave anonymity and quietude, the Balearic Outer Islands are ideal. These are the more than 140 islands that boast no permanent population and are visited only by private yacht. Snorkelling and diving the prized Cabrera Marine Reserve is a must for underwater enthusiasts and dedicated hikers will also find plenty of exceptional trails on land.

Extraordinary archipelago

The wonderful aspect of Balearic yacht charters is that islands and a variety of activities abound, no matter where you go. With short sailing time and ample choice, the Balearics offer incomparable rewards.

“Indulging in a round of island-hopping adventures between the three Balearic sisters is a stunning way to soak up all the archipelago’s best highlights. With an array of activities – both in and out of the sea – a Balearic luxury yacht charter is your ticket to European summer paradise.”
