Stunning! That’s a word that comes to mind as you cruise through the Balearic islands on a luxurious chartered yacht on a yacht charter in the Balearic Islands of Spain.
The Balearic Islands consist of five islands off the coast of Spain: Menorca, Mallorca, Ibiza, Formentera, and the tiny island of Cabrera. Memorable and amazing adventures await, including all of the water-based delights. Snorkeling in the clear waters off of Mallorca will take you to another fascinating world. Of course, chartered yachts usually include other water sports toys, depending on the yacht, such as paddle boards, kayaks, and jetskis.
As this article attests, the port at Mahon is a “charming harbour with colorful architecture.” If you are into opera, be sure to visit the opera house, one of the oldest opera houses in Spain. If you simply want to bask in the sun, Formentera beaches—only accessible by boat—will make your day. Formentera beaches are picturesque, with their beautifully clear water and a backdrop of sand dunes and pine trees.
The views from the Tramuntana mountains in Mallorca are superb. The winding road to the top passes numerous wineries, so why not stop for a wine tasting?. The architecture in Palma, Mallorca ranges from incredibly ornate 13th century gothic to ultra-modern, angular structures. A tour of the landmarks is well worth it. If you want to get close to nature, be sure to visit Cabrera Island. The entire island was declared a national park, and wildlife abounds. You will likely see dolphins, sea turtles, and whales.
There is so much to explore here, from quiet little fishing villages to dusk-to-dawn night life. We can customize a yacht charter itinerary for you like this one, where your captain makes sure you visit all of the islands and island sights that you want to experience when on a yacht charter in the Balearic Islands.
