The Mediterranean is a blissful paradise just waiting to be explored. With several holiday hotspots located here, including France, Spain and Greece, choosing how to best explore this fascinating region can be a challenge.
Due to the fact that many people wish to see several Mediterranean destinations in one holiday, chartering a yacht in the Mediterranean has become an increasingly popular option. For example, our yacht charter in Ibiza options allow you to see the sights of not only Ibiza, but also nearby Formentera, Mallorca and Menorca on the same trip if time permits.
If you’re considering a luxury motor yacht charter in the Mediterranean for your next holiday, we’ve put together this handy guide to help you decide where to go.
Explore the Mediterranean by yacht.
Exploring the Mediterranean on a Yacht
With clear waters, sandy shores and seemingly endless sunshine, it’s no wonder that the Mediterranean has become a year-round holiday hotspot. If you opt for a skippered yacht charter in the Mediterranean, then you’ll be living the life of luxury. Simply tell the crew where you’d like to go, and then sit back and relax as they take you there. However, deciding where the crew should take you isn’t always straightforward. It’s worth keeping in mind that the Mediterranean Sea is vast, stretching from the Strait of Gibraltar to Turkey and containing around 60 basin countries. As a result, if you’re thinking about various Mediterranean yacht charter holidays, then you’re best focusing on one specific area for your holiday, such as the Balearic Islands. This way you can see all of one area, making sure that you don’t miss out on any of the good bits.
Sampling the Delights of the Balearics
Located just off Spain’s east coast, the Balearic Islands have quickly become one of the most popular tourist hotspots in the western Mediterranean. This group of four major islands includes Ibiza, Formentera, Mallorca and Menorca. There are also many minor islands and islets here, such as Cabrera, Dragonera and S’Espalmador.
Due to the fact that these islands are so close to each other, chartering a yacht is undoubtedly the best way to experience the beautiful Balearics. From sheltered coves only accessible via boat, to larger resorts where you can turn heads as you approach the shores, the awe-inspiring natural landscapes of the Balearics are waiting to greet you. Whether you’d rather relax in the peace and quiet of the cabin or explore the islands is your choice. The only thing that’s for certain is that you’ll live the life of luxury in this Mediterranean paradise.
On your yacht charter in the Mediterranean, you can even create your own itinerary. Whether you’d rather take in more tranquil spots such as the fishing villages and natural landscapes of Formentera, or sample the liveliest cities and tourist spots of Ibiza and Mallorca, is completely your choice. When you charter a yacht around the Balearic Islands, there really is a destination to suit everyone.
Make sure the Balearic islands are on your Med yacht charter itinerary.
Sample all Ibiza and Formentera have to offer
If you’re looking to charter a yacht around the Balearics for a week or so, then you may be better off narrowing down your itinerary even further, so you can truly maximise what you can see at each destination.
We recommend zoning in your search on stylish Ibiza and breathtaking Formentera. Our luxury crewed yacht, ‘Chill Out’ is located in Marina Ibiza, right at the heart of the Balearic Islands. As this is only 11 miles away from Formentera, this hotspot port is the perfect location to begin your cruise around the Balearics.
When you charter ‘Chill Out’, you’re in control of where you’d like to go. From secluded white-sand coves to destination bays, Ibiza has an abundance of beaches where you can moor up before heading off to explore.
If you’re looking to get in touch with your spiritual side, then head to Benirras Beach in the north, where there are tribal drumming sessions and fires are lit. Meanwhile, if you’re looking to live the life of luxury, then try Cala Jondal, which is often home to a haze of champagne and sunshine.
Once you’ve explored all Ibiza has to offer, then you’ll still have time to head to Formentera, where you’ll be blown away by the natural landscapes that greet you. The smallest and most southerly of the Balearic Islands, Formentera is a beach paradise. The beaches here rival those of the Caribbean, and the deserted nature of the island (which can only be accessed by boat or yacht) adds to the feeling of luxury.
If you’re considering booking a yacht in the Mediterranean for your next holiday, then why not head to the Balearic Islands? With Ibiza and Formentera particularly in such close proximity, you can live the life of luxury while closely examining the very best the Balearics have to offer.
