Famous for having the most sun-drenched weather in all of Europe, with 300 days of sunshine per year, the Spanish Balearic Islands are an excellent choice for a luxury charter yacht getaway. The spectacular coastlines act as the perfect backdrop for rustic villages, cosmopolitan cities and vibrant seaside ports. Inhabited since Medieval times, the island’s history is reflected in its grand gothic architecture, towering castles and beautiful cathedrals. Combined with an array of modern bars, restaurants and boutiques, secluded beaches and peaceful forests, a charter through the Balearic Islands will leave you craving more.

Magnificent Mallorca

Day 1 Mallorca

The biggest island in the Balearics, Mallorca is widely known for its beautiful, sheltered coves, stunning beaches and limestone mountains dotted with Roman and Moorish ruins. Before embarking on your charter yacht journey, explore the historic city of Palma. The spectacular 121-metre, 13th-century Santa Maria Cathedral is a must-see, as it is even more impressive up close and in person. Afterwards, visit the Moorish Almudaina Royal Palace and have an ice cream at Ca’n Joan de s’Aigo, the oldest ice cream parlour in the city, established in 1700, before heading off on your trip.

Captivating Cabrera

Day 2 Cabrera

Cruise to the captivating island of Cabrera, which is known for its unspoiled natural beauty. Access to the isle is limited, as the uninhabited island is home to a national park, so make the best of your anchorage. Enjoy a leisurely swim in the azure waters before taking the tender ashore. Hike across the sandy beaches and explore the 14th-century castle. See how many wildlife species, from birds to dolphins, you can spot during your trek before heading back to your charter yacht for a relaxing afternoon on board, followed by an al fresco dinner under the stars.

Fascinating Formentera

Day 3 Formentera

The smallest of the Balearic Islands, Formentera, is known for its untouched landscapes. Located just off the Ibiza coast, it said to be the last remaining ‘paradise of the Mediterranean.’ Largely undeveloped and relatively exclusive, its sweeping sandy white beaches, natural beauty and laid-back atmosphere are a contrast to its neighbouring islands. The ideal place to spend the day unwinding, relax on one of its beaches or discover its rich underwater world, teeming with aquatic life, reefs and caves. Afterwards, stop by one of its authentic restaurants to sample some local dishes.

Exciting Ibiza

Day 4 Ibiza

Often touted as the party capital of the Mediterranean, Ibiza also offers plenty of rich history. Known as the White Island, due to its whitewashed buildings, part of the island is home to world-class clubs, bars and DJs. Before you spend the night dancing away, why not discover some of the stunning archaeology, underground caverns and temples located on the island? Explore the cobbled streets of the Old Town or relax on one of its 80 beaches. After the sun has set, choose one of its many beach clubs and nightclubs to party until the early hours of the morning.

Secluded Dragonera

Day 5 Dragonera Island

A natural park, this island offers a fascinating history. Once a key anchorage for the Saracen pirates, it is now an idyllic reserve, full of magnificent wildlife and rare bird species. Take the tender ashore and hike up to the highest point, Far Vell Hill, for breath-taking views of the park. Spend the day exploring its many secluded beaches, stunning cliffs and coves. Stop by the Cala Lledó port, to learn more about the island’s history before returning to your yacht for a final dinner onboard.
