Explore the glittering Balearic Islands

9th June 2022

The stunning Balearic Islands, situated off Spain in the Western Mediterranean, offers so much more than beaches and nightlife, and a luxury yacht charter in Mallorca is the best way to discover the four glistening islands with a well-curated itinerary.

Starting at Menorca, the most westerly of the islands, you’ll be greeted by bottle-green coves and shallow turquoise bays at the resorts of Son Bou and Cala’n Forcat, both of which offer the perfect family getaway or peaceful escape. The island is also a great destination for snorkelling, and the wealth of traditional family restaurants means there’s no shortage of authentic, Mediterranean cuisine. You can also add education to your schedule by visiting the island’s prehistoric ruins.

Sailing east to Mallorca, the biggest of the Balearic Islands is a paradise for the rich and famous – the Philippe Starck-designed Port Adriano a must-stop destination to take in the ambience and the high-end gastronomy and glitzy designer stores. And if that’s not quite enough, Palma, the island capital, is home to the best boutiques and restaurants. Elsewhere on the island, there are dozens of picturesque fishing villages, secluded caves, and vineyards where you can please your palette, while the more adventurous can cycle Sa Calobra, a 10-kilometre-long trail that hangs down the side of a mountain.

Sailing east and you’ll arrive at Ibiza, where you’ll find more great shopping destinations, from designer goods to local curios, and some of the best nightlife on offer anywhere in the world. And if, after all that, you need to kick back and relax, you can spend a lazy day soaking up the sun, culture and history of the Old Town, or relax on any of the island’s beautiful coves and beaches. You can get back to nature by venturing north, and exploring the hidden caves and thick pine forests, or chill out at the hippy markets of Es Cana and San Carlos. And be sure to take in one of the White Isle’s famous sunsets from the deck of your yacht.

Finally, venture south to Formentera for some of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful, untouched beaches, alongside some of the sea’s best snorkelling at the UNESCO-listed diving sites. The perfect way to relax after an amazing experience taking a yacht charter in the Balearic Islands.
