If you have decided that you should spend your summer holiday on a yacht charter in Spain than reading this article is just the right place to start. One of the most popular countries in the Mediterranean and amongst the most beautiful and diverse places to visit, Spain and its islands is a destination that tourists like to explore over and over again. Whether it’s the lovely warm climate, Spaniards’ passion for good life and food or the beautiful anchorages, this place will keep you entertained, amazed, relaxed and most of all, wanting for more. Balearic Islands, located in the western Mediterranean Sea, are the most popular charter location in Spain with charter itineraries starting and ending in either Mallorca or Ibiza.
On a charter vacation in the Balearics you will encounter continuous sunshine, azure waters, beautiful beaches and rugged landscape with numerous historical sites to visit, including castles, museums and ancient cobbled streets in charming little towns. The four largest islands to explore are Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera.
Majorca yacht charter offers world-renowned beaches and coves, and is an excellent destination to enjoy everything from countryside golf to historic culture or water sports and lively entertainment. The capital city Palma has plenty of outdoor cafés, pubs and large seafront discos hosting some of the best DJs on the music scene. In Palma de Mallorca you could also visit the elegant Cathedral of Palma (Sa Seu), commissioned by King Jaume I and built on the site of a preexisting Arab mosque.
Menorca boasts more beaches than Ibiza, Mallorca and Formentera combined and there are numerous attractions, including fabulous archeological sites and cultural attractions throughout the island. For Menorca yacht charterers this is a perfect place to enjoy some diving, thanks to the crystal clear waters and fantastic diving sites. Minorca is also a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and features 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.
Known as the ‘White Island’ thanks to its typical architecture, Ibiza is one of the best known islands in the world. If you are after lively nightlife and great entertainment on your luxury yacht charter, than Ibiza is the right destination. 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.
However, there is much more to Ibiza than night-time entertainment. The island is 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.
Your Spanish charter itinerary will not be complete without a visit to Fromentera; a mecca for nature lovers with rich vegetation of pines and palms. Formentera is a lovely little island situated 11 miles from the South Eastern coast of Ibiza and can only be reached by boat. Adding to the exclusive atmosphere, there are numerous great beaches and tranquil bays to relax and unwind.
