Spain Yacht Charter Guide

A luxury yacht charter to Spain promises a backdrop of dazzling cities, day trips to dreamy islands and mouthwatering, decadent locale fare.

Centered around the sparkling Mediterranean coast, a yacht charter to this electric country, with highlights from Catalonia and Barcelona to the Canary Islands, will have you longing for more time ashore to explore what these desirable destinations have to offer.

A yacht charter to Spain begs for a visit to the northeastern corner of the country to visit Catalonia. Brimmed with natural beauty, this spectacular locale is filled with unique activities. Take a hot air balloon ride above La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park to marvel at 360-degree views of the 40 volcanic cones and 20 lava flows. This exciting jaunt can act as a romantic escape for couples or an adventurous excursion for families. For the history buffs, go back in time while touring the preserved medieval town of Besalu, which plays host to a collection of churches and civil buildings.

 

En route back to the lively yachting hub of Barcelona, you have to stop to dine at Celler de Can Roca, ranked twice as the best restaurant in the world; it guarantees a gastronomical experience that you will never forget. Barcelona welcomes visitors to marvel at its rich history, from priceless masterpieces by the likes of Picasso and Gaudi to the city’s pristine beaches. After a late morning spent on the decks of your yacht, head ashore to stroll through the tree-lined street of La Ramblas to immerse yourself in the culture and be tempted by the many restaurants, galleries and shops.

With their close proximity to Africa, the Canaries offer those who embark on a Spain yacht charter year-round sunshine and exhilarating sailing conditions. Spectacular volcanic mountains provide the perfect backdrop as you sail from Tenerife, the largest island,  to the unspoiled islands of La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro.

Begin in the capital of Tenerife, Santa Cruz, and spend a few days cruising around the island, stepping ashore to discover the cosmopolitan centers and old fishing villages as you go. From Tenerife, head to San Sebastian on La Gomera. The island was the starting point for Columbus’ first voyage and boasts a wild interior that is known for its hiking. Cruise over to the most exotic of the Canaries, La Palma. Also called the “Pretty Island”, La Palma is known for its lush vegetation, clear waters and wealth of flora and fauna for naturalists to relish in. Neighboring El Hierro also boasts spectacular scenery above and below the water. The waters are so clear that they provide perfect snorkeling and diving conditions.
