The Balearic Islands, which are found in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Spain's eastern coast, are becoming more frequently visited on yacht charters. Four main destinations make up the Balearic Islands. These include Ibiza, Formentera, Mallorca, and Menorca. Ibiza is famous for its entertainment, Formentera is known for its isolation, Mallorca is known for its harbors and supplies, and Menorca is known for its UNESCO reserve. Getting around to all these places would be like hitting a vacation home run. If possible, try to incorporate all of these exciting activities into your balerics charter.

If you plan to embark on your charter in the Balearics, you may fly into the international airport in Palma Mallorca. This historic city is a major tourist destination. Although it has many hotel chains, shops, and all of the conveniences one would expect from a modern city, it has maintained its old architecture and charm. Her Old Downtown area features the original narrow streets and the gothic style Santa Maria cathedral that dates back to the 13th century.
Serra de Tramuntana, Mallorca
This series of limestone mountains, which runs along the coast of Mallorca, not only offers stunning vistas but is also a pleasant change of pace from a holiday spent exclusively lounging on your charter or a beach. A significant portion of the Serra de Tramuntana is made up of wooded slopes that eventually give way to rocky crags and summits, as well as the occasional abandoned stone house or monastery. The traditional mountain communities that call these mountain ranges home have an unchanging quality, just like the mountain scenery that surrounds them. The majority of the western shoreline is steep and rocky, with very few sandy beaches and more pine-covered hillsides that lead down to the water. Ancient irrigation systems and dry stone platforms stretching back to the time when the area was occupied by the Arabic people show that they were able to make the most of the challenging agricultural terrain that the mountains presented to them. These historical remnants are still very much present in the area.
Le Seu Cathedral, Palma de Mallorca
Palma is not only a fantastic location to get used to living on a Spanish island, but it is also the epicenter of activity for windsurfing in the Balearic Islands, making it an ideal place to settle in. Visit Le Seu at some point while you are out and about discovering the surrounding region. This historic landmark, which was built in the Gothic style, performs nearly all of the functions that one would expect from a museum. It is highly recommended that you visit the cathedral in the middle of the day, when the light is at its brightest, as doing so will give you the best opportunity to appreciate the gigantic stained glass pieces that are housed within the cathedral to their greatest potential. Those with a passion for art should keep their eyes vigilant for Gaudi's contributions, which can be found strewn across this breathtaking sanctuary.
You also won't want to miss the lovely beaches of Mallorca. There are quite a number of great beaches on Mallorca to choose from. Just ask your captain or crew which beach they suggest and explain your preferences.
After you've taken in all Mallorca has to offer, it's time to move on to one of the other beautiful islands. If you are interested in less people, ask your captain to head on over to Formentera.
Formentera is located approximately four miles south of Ibiza and is twelve miles long. This island is known for its pristine beaches. Just north of Formentera is the island of Espalmador. The two islands are separated by a shallow sandbar, and it is possible to wade from one island to the other during low tide.
Playa de ses Illetes, Formentera
As the smallest of the Balearic Islands, Formentera also holds the distinction of being the least "spoiled." The majority of people, when they think about their ideal day spent at the beach, picture an ocean that is completely transparent and sand that is as powdered and white as the kind that can be found at this particular beach location. Playa de Llevant is yet another beach in the area that is well worth a visit, and bicycling is a common mode of transportation for tourists who wish to travel between the various beaches. A visit to Playa de les Illetes is well worth the trip. Playa de les Illetes is a beach where visitors can kick back and enjoy the stunning scenery while they unwind. But you can also participate in a variety of aquatic activities. When it comes to windsurfing, kiteboarding, sailing, SUPing, and snorkeling, the two companies in the area have you covered. There is also a diving school there so you can see the Mediterranean from a whole new perspective. Even if you're not an experienced scuba diver, you should still go diving in the Mediterranean because of the clean seas and stunning marine life. The beach's vast culinary selection is top-notch too: There are a variety of eateries in the region serving a wide variety of cuisines that are sure to please any and all palates. The food is predominantly that of the nation. Sunsets at Playa de les Illetes are particularly stunning, and you shouldn't skip out on seeing one if you ever visit.
Once you've soaked in everything you want to see in Formentera, hop aboard your Luxury Yacht Charter and head on to Ibiza.
Ibiza offers guests options for everyone, whether you are looking for party time or quiet time, Ibiza has got you covered. Beautiful, sandy beaches can be found along the coastline with pine hills around the back. Great nightclubs that are all the rage with the European crowd can be found in town. Or maybe you'd like some quiet meditation at one of the yoga retreats.
Nightlife in Ibiza town can range from techno party life at one of the celebrity filled nightclubs, to a quiet classical concert in Santa Eularia church, and anything in between. This town offers such an array of music, just about anyone will find something to enjoy.
Es Vedra, Ibiza
People who are looking for a peaceful environment often travel all the way to Es Vedra, which is located in the Balearic Islands. This is due to the fact that Es Vedra is known for its breathtaking scenery, which makes for a vacation that is the ideal complement to the calm that one experiences while sailing. After making the journey to see this supposedly enchanted boulder, guests report that they emerge from the experience feeling calmer and more appreciative of life. Picnicking and watching the sun go down at this location is a popular activity that frequently involves people bringing their own food. On the island of Formentera, there is a lighthouse called Es Cap de Barbaria that is said to offer the same degree of tranquility. Sunset is an especially beautiful time to explore Es Vedrá because of its location to the southwest of Ibiza. It is almost impossible not to feel the energy that is emitted from the pyramidal rock as the sun sinks magnificently into the waters in a flurry of colors.
strong>D’Alt Vila, Ibiza
People have a tendency to associate Ibiza with rowdy, modern dance parties; however, the island also features a beautiful old town that provides a delightful counterpoint to these venues. Visit D'Alt Vila to learn about its rich architectural history, take a walk along its cobblestone walkways, and gaze out over the towering cliffs that encircle it. There is an inherent sense of drama in D'Alt Vila that cannot be duplicated in any other fashionable bar or restaurant. This is something that sets it apart from the competition. While you're out partying at night, you're free to play your age, but during the day, you should make it a point to visit some of Ibiza's landmarks that have withstood the weight of time. The Cathedral of Santa Mara de las Nieves, the Town Hall, which is located in the Can Botino building, the Museu d'Art Contemporani d'Eivissa, and the castle and its ramparts, are some of the great treasures that you really shouldn't miss on your visit to Dalt Vila.
Fortunately Menorca has stayed off the radar for the big tourist companies. This has helped in keeping this island pristine. In 1993 UNESCO declared this place a Biosphere Reserve, which has kept much of this place from being developed. There are many beaches that seem undisturbed by visitors, just waiting for you to visit them.
This does not mean that there is absolutely no one on the island. The capital city of Menorca is Mahon. It is located on one of the largest natural harbors in the world. Bars and restaurants along the harbor come alive during the evening and make a great place to sit and watch the ships and yachts. During the day the town offers plenty of shopping.
The other main town on the island is Ciutadella, the former capital. A lovely, single lane road links the two, and there are a few small hamlets that you will pass through along the journey.
