Whether it’s cocktails at Nassau Beach Club, dining at Bagatelle or partying it up one of the iconic nightclubs like Amnesia, Space or Pacha. There are countless options in Ibiza.

Welcome to the Balearic Island known for its unspoilt beaches, shallow blue waters, and relaxed lifestyle. The beauty of Formentera is that you can cruise to Ses Illetes in a few hours or spend a couple of days exploring the picturesque scenery, leisurely swims, and our daily dose of Vitamin ‘Sea’. Formentera is the perfect destination to enjoy your yacht charter’s water toys and explore the quiet white-sand beaches. It’s also good to note that Ses Illetes is the part of Formentera where the Ibiza-lovers come on their superyachts to recoup from the party scene and take a long lunch at one of the beach clubs, so if you’re looking for a relaxing and peaceful time on this paradise island our concierge team will keep this in mind when designed your personalised itinerary.
You will never run out of things to see and do in Majorca’s cosmopolitan capital. Palma offers a delicious melting pot of cultures and historic influences. Explore cobbled streets of the atmospheric old town, impressive museums, galleries, and churches or indulge in sangria and tapas whilst enjoying the relaxing and welcoming ambience in a Spanish restaurant.
Whilst exploring Mallorca on your luxury yacht charter, make sure you visit the ancient towns with vineyards and orange groves, take in the rugged scenery and some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean.
We highly recommend an overnight stop at Port Andratx, a popular harbour with a classy reputation along with a stop-off at the Port of Pollenca on the northern tip of Mallorca where you’ll find slouching pine trees and traditional fishing boats moored along the seafront.
Mallorca’s little sister, Menorca, is a haven for the low-key yacht charterer with a 285km long coastline that offers a variety of experiences. With its shallow coves and boho-chic crowd, lounge in gentle turquoise waters and relaxing beaches. The southern coastline of Menorca boasts golden beaches whilst the northern part is rural with a rugged landscape and reddish-coloured sand beaches.
The island’s capital Maó (also known as Mahon) is in a natural bay and is the main base of yacht charters. Maó boasts attractions such as the Sant Felip Castle at the entrance of the harbour, a picturesque old town with narrow, winding streets and the fortress of La Mola.
Spend your afternoons relaxing and swimming in the crystal-clear warm waters around Cala Algaiarens which consists of two beaches, Platja des Bot and Platja es Tancats. The two beaches are situated inside a beautiful bay, making it one of the best-protected beaches on the north coast. Both bays are ideal for snorkelling or kayaking.
We recommend adding Menorca into your yacht charter itinerary around the Balearic Islands as it offers a nice and relaxed atmosphere with unspoilt scenery compared to the other islands.
After exploring the Balearic Islands and all they have to offer, we highly recommend adding some of mainland Spain to your charter itinerary.
From the tree-lined street of La Rambla (Barcelona’s most famous street) to the stunning architecture by the renowned Gaudi, Barcelona is a city in mainland Spain that will captivate you with its charm and charismatic streets.
