Spain Yacht Charters
SAMPLE 7 DAY CHARTER ITINERARY FOR THE BALEARIC ISLANDS OF SPAIN
The best way to visit these islands is obviously by yacht. That way you can enjoy all the craziness, yet escape or avoid it completely if you wish to. Ibiza is known as the island of excess. This is where the party crowd from all over Europe and beyond comes to play. Ibiza City is the capital of the island and of fun.
Many of the boutiques stay open until 2 am. The bars are open until 3:30 am or later, and afterward the action moves to the clubs until daylight, and for serious fun seeker there is a casino that will be happy to help you part with your money. If the clubs and this life style is not your cup of tea it's suggested you avoid being there during the months of July and August.
Beyond the 24 hour parties you will find plenty to explore such as; Gothic cathedrals, Stone Age ruins, secluded coves and towering mountains.
Day 1: You arrive in Ibiza and are greeted at the airport by your Captain who will accompany you to your charter yacht. As soon as you are settled, you depart for the lovely islands of Formentera to spend the day in quiet comfort, snorkeling and swimming. Later you return to Ibiza for a night of fun and frolic.
Day 2: You enjoy a leisurely breakfast (or lunch, depending on what time you returned to the yacht from the clubs!) as you motor up the coast of Ibiza Cala D'en Serra. This exquisite sandy cove has turquoise waters that are perfect for snorkeling. Dinner will be served al fresco under star-studded skies. Following dinner, the yacht will depart for Mallorca, to anchor off the rugged island of Cabrera if the weather is settled.
Day3: In the morning you leave Cabrera for Palma taking time to explore the city, including the La Seu Cathedral and the surrounding sights. You return to the yacht for lunch while underway as you head on up to Proto Cristo to visit the Coves del Drac, a wonderful cave with an astounding subterranean lake. After your visit, it is just a short cruise up to Port d'Alcudia where you'll enjoy dinner on board, or try out the local cuisine.
Day 4: After breakfast, you might opt to take a short bike ride to the Parc Natural De S'Albufera for a walk and a chance to see the unusual species of birds. Then its back to the yacht for some watersports before leaving for Menorca where you either anchor or dock in the capital city of Mao (Mahon) for the evening.
Day 5: After breakfast you depart for the northern end of Menorca, to Fornells. This pretty fishing village is situated at the mouth of a long bay. There are several anchorages here, each one nicer than the one before. Your Captain will help you choose the one that's perfect for you. There you'll spend the rest of the evening anchored under the stars.
Day 6: This morning you'll enjoy breakfast whle underway, as your yacht departs early for the Port de Soller, a beautiful natural harbor surrounded by the spectacular mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana. If you are a music lover, you might want to hire a car and visit the Carthusain Monastery of Validemossa where Chopin spent time.
Day 7: On this day you'll take a lovely short journey back to Palma in time to depart to the Airport on Majorca, where you will catch a flight back to Ibiza, or simply leave from Palma to your final destination.
