The four Balearic Islands, Ibiza, Formentera, Mallorca and Minorca offer far more than the world-famous DJs and nightclubs. The four islands are dotted with private coves and beaches and offer delicious Mediterranean fare with white sand beaches.
Below is a sample 7-day yachting itinerary in Balearic Islands. Enjoy.
Start your Balearic journey in the capital of Palma known for its rich history, modern art and tapas restaurants. From there, journey to Andratx, once a popular pirate den. Puerto Andratx is a stunning natural harbour ringed by an amphitheatre of beaches and cliffs.
Similar to the piratical history of Andratx, the uninhabited island of Sa Dragonera was kept known as a smuggler’s lair and to this day remains a pristine marine and island reserve. Enjoy a relaxing day on the water exploring the deserted beaches and coves and have your lunch and dinner prepared on your yacht as you take in the breath- taking views.
Menorca’s second largest city, Ciutadella, boasts a theatre, 10 museums and 100 restaurants all clustered together. This medieval masterpiece wears its Roman, Arab and Ottoman history with pride. Go onshore and explore the various trails to the south by bike or go north to the hidden beaches of Cala Morell.
With a series of terraces weaving in between caves and perched high above on dramatic cliffs, Cove d'en Xoroi is a lovely Mediterranean beach club by day that turns into a lively night club featuring international DJs. Enjoy the rose and the view by day and put on your dancing shoes and get ready to dance until the sunrise with your guests.
Known in the Balearics as Palma’s best boating spot, the Cabrera Archipelago Maritime Park, was closed off to the public until 1988 as a military base. Its 19 islands are accessible only to those with their own boat. Catch a glimpse of the whales and dolphins as they roam the protected waters.
Your trip to Formentera will feel as though you have been transported to the Caribbean. Her emerald waters and sandy beaches along with amazing beachside eateries will make you forget you are in the Mediterranean. Make sure to check out Beso Beach and Juan y Andrea and get a massage on the beach as you wash all your stress away with a Hierbas cocktail.
Ibiza has long been the destination of choice for the world’s party elite. Make sure to visit Leo in the port for a late night party, but don't forget to visit the walled off fortress for a view of the entire island. Then make your way to Es Vedra and the north of the island where you will feel as though you are miles away from the mega clubs of Ibiza. Overnight in Ibiza and return to Palma the following morning.
