BALEARIC ISLANDS

Great parties or true escape

While the Balearics are known for world class party spots, a charter here goes far beyond Ibiza’s nightclubs. These Spanish islands offer some of the best beaches in the world, long sweeping bays and a myriad of different islands, each with its own unique identity.

Dance until dawn at the clubs on Ibiza. Shop at the Club de Vuela Puerto de Andratx, once home to King Jaime I. Cruise through the Torrente de Pareis.

Ibiza - Ensenada da la Canal

Party time

Arrive in Ibiza, and if you prefer not to cruise immediately, take the day to explore the island, with its old town, historic cathedral and archaeological museum. The citadel walls date to the 16th century, and restaurants and shops are dotted around the maze of stone alleyways. Some of the world’s best nightclubs are found here, coming to life after sunset and continuing until dawn.

Beach relaxation

Sleep late while your charter yacht sets a course for Ensenada de la Canal. Spend a leisurely afternoon on a beach of soft white sand, relaxing in the sun or sipping cocktails at beach bars. Then head to Formentera, a great place to anchor before dinner aboard with unspoiled scenery as the sun goes down.

14.5 km / 9 miles

day 3

Formentara - Playa Espalmador

Formentara - Playa Espalmador

Sand, swimming and mud baths

Your yacht’s anchorage will be close enough to the shores of Formentera for an energetic swim or an easy tender ride ashore, where you can spend the morning sunbathing or doing yoga on the beach. After lunch, cruise to Playa Espalmador for a soak in the natural mud baths within walking distance of the beach and a refreshing swim in the sea. Dine aboard with gourmet cuisine by candlelight.

Choose your favourite islands in the Balearics. Or onboard a fast charter yacht, hop between them all and discover the unique character of each.

Undiscovered island

Yet to be discovered by tourists, Andratx was once home to King Jaime I and a summer getaway for the Bishop of Barcelona.

Browse boutiques near the Club de Vela Puerto de Andratx, then walk to gourmet restaurants enjoying views of your yacht at anchor in the bay.

Artists’ escape

After breakfast onboard, enjoy a swim into the sea cave at Cala Vall de Boca, where the phosphorescence glows inside a towering cavern. Later, cruise to Puerto Pollenca on Mallorca’s northeast coast. In the early 1900s, artists flocked to Puerto Pollenca, drawn to its steep mountains sloping down to sunny shores lined with dark green pine trees, grey limestone rocks and sparkling waters of deep blue.

Bay of rays

The secluded beach of Cala Molto offers some of the best snorkelling in the Balearic Islands, with golden sands, rocky shorelines and tempting inviting turquoise waters. A few minutes along the coast is Cala Ratjada, the Bay of Rays, whose historical architecture is complemented by lively bars, nightclubs and restaurants.

Palma de Mallorca

day 7

Cala Molto & Ratjada - Palma de Mallorca

Cala Molto & Ratjada - Palma de Mallorca

old meets new

Cruise to Palma de Mallorca, where ancient meets modern throughout a handsome port. Shop for souvenirs along narrow stone alleyways, take a carriage ride through the streets, and take in the grandeur of the 12th-century Gothic cathedral. Shopping here is high-end, with local boutiques selling keepsakes that can’t be found anywhere else.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking the Balearics are only for party-seeking teenagers. That’s a tiny corner of a largely unexplored and beautiful part of the world.
