Known for their beautiful beaches, scenic coastlines and clear waters, the Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Formentera, Mallorca and Menorca are tranquil and idyllic islands that are perfect for any holiday.
With so much to see and do across these beautiful islands, many visitors opt for a motor yacht charter in Ibiza to ensure that they can see everything this great archipelago has to offer.
From a mooring in Ibiza, you can set sail and enjoy the stunning scenery, world-class leisure activities and storied histories of each island. Here’s a little bit of what you can expect in each location when you discover the Balearic Islands by private yacht.
From bustling beaches near cities to tiny coves and islands only reachable by boat, Ibiza has plenty of stunning beaches just waiting to be explored. The two most popular are Cala Jondal, which is surrounded by jagged cliffs and world-class facilities, and Las Salinas (Ses Salines), which is known as the coolest beach on Ibiza.
If you opt for a motor yacht charter in Ibiza during your stay, then you can easily visit both of these great beaches while also taking in some of the secret spots only discoverable by boat. These include Es Vedra, a tiny rocky island that also serves as Ibiza’s unofficial totem. If you’re feeling brave, then there’s also a 30ft-high natural diving platform chiselled into the nearby rock face at Es Vedranell, which is an even smaller island. If you’re only in the area for a short while and want to make the most of your stay, then consider opting for an Ibiza yacht day charter experience so that you can take in these impressive sights.
However, there’s much more to see and experience in Ibiza than just the stunning beaches. The island has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its rich biodiversity and cultural attractions, including the necropolis of Puig des Molins and the historic centre of Eivissa, also known as Ibiza Town.
Formentera lies only 11 miles away from Marina Ibiza, making private yacht charters to Formentera from Ibiza a great option for many holiday goers. With white sands and turquoise seas, Formentera is perfect for anyone looking to sit back, relax and soak up the sun.
Much like in neighbouring Ibiza, when you take a private yacht to Formentera, you’ll find much more than just beautiful beaches. If you moor the yacht in a nearby harbour and head inland, you’ll discover beautiful scenery including lakes, caves and salt pans, as well as historic villages such as Sant Francesc Xavier, Sant Ferran de ses Roques, and El Pilar de la Mola. You can also take the opportunity to scuba dive or explore over 30 natural hiking routes and cycle tracks on the island.
If you’re in the Balearics for a week or so, then consider a longer private yacht excursion to Mallorca. Around 150 kilometres away from the port in Ibiza, Mallorca is known for its rich heritage and diversity.
However, Mallorca is undoubtedly most famous for its clear waters, which make it attractive for scuba divers, swimmers and surfers. The island of Mallorca itself is culturally important and over 40% of it is protected. From the Serra de Tramuntana Mountains in the north to the Cabrera Marine and Terrestrial Nature Reserve (a group of islands and islets an hour south by boat), Mallorca is a paradise waiting to be explored.
The farthest Balearic Island from Marina Ibiza, Menorca’s harmony and diversity enchant all who visit by yacht. There’s 216 kilometres of coastline to discover here, from the rugged northern shores to the golden sand coves of the south.
The waters at all parts of the island are crystal clear, and the stunning sea bed has been a favourite amongst diving enthusiasts for decades. Inland, Menorca provides plenty to see and discover, including stunning landscapes and a great variety of flora and fauna.
With beautiful coastlines, cultural hotspots and stunning scenery, the Balearics have much to offer holiday goers, and a private yacht is the perfect way to explore these beautiful locations. Enquire today to discuss discovering the Balearics aboard ‘Chill Out’.
