Spain Yacht Charter

Does the thought of a yacht charter holiday in Spain make you see red? Everything about Spain represents the passion and power of an awesome culture. The swirling Flamenco skirts, the flash of the Matador's cloak, the sangria, the tapas, and the rich and flaming personalities of the Spanish. Everything about Spain is red; except the startling blue backdrop of the Mediterranean, where the yachts moor with their shiny hulls, and the silvery green leaves of the olive groves. Balearic Islands, located in the western Mediterranean Sea, are  the most sought-after charter destination in Spain with charter itineraries starting and ending in either Mallorca or Ibiza.

On a charter holiday in the Balearics you will come across continuous sunshine, pristine clear waters, beautiful beaches and rugged landscape with plenty of historical sites to visit; including castles, museums and ancient cobbled streets in quaint little towns.  The four largest islands to explore are Mallorca (or Majorca), Minorca (Menorca), Ibiza and Formentera (Espalmador).

TOP DESTINATIONS TO VISIT IN SPAIN

MENORCA

Menorca features more beaches than Ibiza, Mallorca and Formentera combined and there are various attractions, including fabulous archeological sites and cultural attractions throughout the island. For yacht charterers Menorca is a perfect place to enjoy great diving, thanks to the crystal clear waters and fantastic diving sites. Minorca is also a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and has marked trails and routes in southern Europe‘s most important wetland areas. The S’Albufera d’Es Grau Nature Reserve is where many aquatic and migratory birds thrive, or visit one of the monumental sites such as the historic old town of Ciudadela.

IBIZA

Refered to as the ‘White Island’ thanks to its typical architecture, Ibiza is one of the best known islands in the world. If what your desire is a lively nightlife and great entertainment on your luxury yacht charter, than Ibiza is the right place to sail to. The entertainment isn’t just reserved to the night clubs; after the sunset, Ibiza plays host to street markets, terrace bars, open-air cultural events and concerts.

In addition to lively atmosphere, the island is also a UNESCO World Heritage destination for its cultural wealth, boasting wonderful archaeological history and museums. By day you could choose to explore the ancient heritage of the island or simply relax and enjoy one of the many tiny coves, broad white sand beaches and water activities.  There are also two beautiful National Parks to visit in Ibiza: the Ses Salinas National Park and the Es Vedrà – an uninhabited nature reserve island.

Adding to the exclusive atmosphere, there are numerous great beaches and tranquil bays to relax and unwind. More on Espalmador / Formentera yacht charter …

BARCELONA

The northern Catalonian City of Barcelona, Spain’s second largest, is also the launching base for some of Spain’s superyacht charters, for those visitors who wish to add Barcelona to their charter itinerary. The city is a melting pot of gothic and medieval architecture and the culture and nightlife in Barcelona, is as good as anywhere. There are two main marinas in Barcelona, including the newly developed Marina Port Vell. From here it is just a short stroll down to the Las Ramblas, Barcelona's famous main street. It is lined with restaurants, cafe and shops. Some of the 'must-see' sights include the breathtaking 'Sagrada Familia' surrounded by the Gothic Quarter - Barri Gòtic, Park Guell or the Picasso Museum. Barcelona, a Spanish City known for its unique diversity, is a microcosm of rich culture and history and considered as a teeming social milieu in tourist circles.

The Spain yacht charter scene has become increasingly popular and the types of yacht charter available in the Balearics, Barcelona, Palma, Valencia and The Costa Brava are all the main types of yacht charter including motor, sailing, bareboat charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, luxury yachts and the ever more familiar super yacht charter.

Like most of the Mediterranean, the Spain yacht chartering season generally runs from April to the end of October. The summer season in July and August is the hottest and tends to have lighter winds. This is also the high season as far as yacht charter goes. Other good times to rent a yacht is generally on either of the shoulder seasons (April-May and September-October), each side of the main summer season, as the temperatures are still comfortable, and the onshore tourists have yet to arrive in their largest numbers. This is the time that you will see the bulk of the Mediterranean crewed luxury superyachts visiting Spain.
