Balearic Islands are better known as the Spanish Jewels — Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza. Mallorca’s cathedrals and castles along with the many museums will keep you busy on shore. Architecture dating into the 13th century is a spectacular sight to see. When you arrive in Menorca you will fund hidden beaches and secret coves far from the busy streets. Ibiza is world famous for the “club” scene, although this gem is not only about nightlife and dancing. The long, beautiful beaches are bubbling bars as far as your eyes can see. — Alicia Ewing, Charter Broker
Barcelona boasts a subtropical Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and warm summers — a lovely place to visit in any season. There are many exciting attractions to keep you busy ashore in Barcelona, such as visiting La Sagrada Familia, the most iconic building in the city and one of Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi’s most prized works. Art addicts can spend an afternoon sauntering through the Picasso museum, which features approximately 3,500 works from the famed painter. A visit to this stunning city is not complete without some Catalan cuisine. ABaC is a Michelin-star eatery featuring modern Catalan cuisine. Dine on sumptuous traditional dishes of seafood and Iberian pork.
The Balearic Islands, comprised of Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera, beckon from 120 off the coast of Barcelona. Majorca is the largest island on the archipelago, and her main city of Palma has been a yachting hub for many years. Although it’s known to be “touristy,” there are many unspoiled anchorages, such as Racó de sa Fragata, around the island for escape from the hustle and bustle.
The Balearic’s smallest island of Formentera boasts the best beach, Platja de Ses Illets. Walk down powdery white sand beaches surrounded by vibrant sapphire seas and enjoy local fare at one of the tiny beach restaurants that dot the sand.
For a more festive Balearic Islands yacht charter, head for Ibiza, renown as Europe’s party playground. The jet-set often can be found dancing until the wee hours to the world’s top DJs at Pacha, Space, Ushuaïa Beach Club and Playa D’Bossa, just to name a few. Spend your days beachside at Cala D’Aubarca, a beautiful pristine spot for a beach picnic or test-drive the yacht’s jet skis at the private, rentable Togomago Island, which vaunts a water sport and fishing culture. Top off your Balearic Island luxury yacht charter with a meal at the uber-fabulous El Chiringuito — a true A-list haunt.
