Top Five Balearic Attractions

The Balearic Islands off the eastern coast of Spain are Mediterranean safe havens for the yachting set. Ibiza is known for the parties, Formentera for the solitude, Mallorca for its marina and provisions, and Menorca for its UNESCO reserve. You’ll hit a vacation homerun if you round all these bases! A charter yacht cruise will help you do it right. Try incorporating the following:

Number One

Serra de Tramuntana, Mallorca. This limestone mountain range runs along Majorca’s coast and provides tremendous views as well as a nice alternative to a completely beach-centric vacation. Hike, bike, walk, or ride! Just make sure you see this natural wonder for yourself. Driving poses a challenge for some visitors so you might want to consider one of your other options when it comes to seeing the villages and monasteries tucked up on this ridge.

Number Two

Playa de ses Illetes, Formentera. Formentera is the smallest of the Balearics, and fittingly it is the least “spoiled.” This particular spot is a beach lover’s beach with the clear water and white sand that everyone fantasizes about when picturing his or her ideal day at the beach. Biking is a popular way to visit different beaches, and Playa de Llevant is another one worth seeing. The boats on the horizon remind you that your yacht may be the best way to visit several of these sandy alcoves.

Number Three

Es Vedra, Ibiza. People seek the relaxing atmosphere that Es Vedra provides because its beautiful views ensure a mental vacation that complements the physical respite you enjoy aboard the yacht. This seemingly magical rock transforms visitors into calmer more appreciative versions of themselves. It is a popular place to bring a picnic or watch a sunset. Es Cap de Barbaria Lighthouse on Formentera is said to offer the same tranquility.

Number Four

D’Alt Vila, Ibiza. The old section of Ibiza is a wonderful counterweight to the loud, modern dance clubs that people associate with the island. Come see D’Alt Vila’s historic architecture, walk along its cobblestoned paths, and peer over its looming cliffs. There is inherent drama in D’Alt Vila that no trendy bar or restaurant can duplicate. Party like a kid at night, but make sure to experience some of Ibiza’s lasting, older charms during the day.

Number Five

Le Seu Cathedral, Palma de Mallorca. Palma is the yachting hub of the Balearics, and as your Captain can attest, it’s a good place to get acclimated to Spanish island life. While walking the town, set aside time for Le Seu. This historic landmark built in the Gothic style is practically a museum. We recommend you go during peak sun hours in order to maximize the warm effects of the large stained glass pieces built into the cathedral. Art enthusiasts should keep an eye out for Gaudi’s contributions to this magnificent church.
