Set sail across Spain’s seductive seas for a yacht charter of a lifetime

From Balearic bliss to Barcelona’s top-tier tapas, the Iberian Peninsula offers up one of the most cultural yachting itineraries in the Mediterranean. Lush green valleys, Baroque churches and cascading golden sands are framed by a year-round sunny climate.

Positioned in the heart of Barcelona, Gaudi’s fantastical architecture sits in harmonious contrast to the metropolitan Marina Port Vell. The 2000-year-old port, now transformed into a cosmopolitan center, lies on the cusp of the city’s Gothic quarter. Here, tapas-infused twisting cobbled streets offer up destination bars and bustling boutiques. For stretching vistas, take the funicular to the top of Tibidabo Mountain before casting off to cruise 270 miles of idyllic anchorages along the Spanish coast.

Costa Dorada, known as the golden coast, comprises 20 waterfront towns. It’s defined by its yawning beaches and shallow waters ideal for snorkeling adventures. Costa Brava, in the northeast corner of Spain, gifts wild, rugged terrain and picturesque fishing ports. Drop anchor at Cadaqués to savor fresh catch-of-the-day dishes and set eyes on the house once lived in by world-renowned artist Salvador Dalí.

To the east lie the Balearic Islands, just over 200km from Barcelona and yet a world apart in terms of offering. Pair the party-infused heights of Ibiza with a restorative yoga retreat to witness both sides of this sun-kissed island. Head to the buzzing hub of Palma de Mallorca for a sailing charter that weaves through stunning fjord-like inlets and secluded bays. Ibiza, Menorca, Mallorca and Formentera lie within easy cruising distance of one another, creating the perfect 10-day island hopping itinerary.

Mallorca – recognized by its capital city of Palma, Mallorca is the Balearics’ sailing hub and architectural high point. Alongside gastronomic restaurants serving up the freshest seafood around, the island’s verdant hills are cloaked in aromatic olive groves and untold beauty. While here, a visit to Sóller is a must, considered one of the most beautiful towns in Spain.

Ibiza – an island of two halves, serving up international DJs in one hand and restorative retreats in the other. Often referred to as the White Island, thanks to its landmark array of whitewashed buildings, Ibiza has earned the reputation for being a family-orientated destination. World-class restaurants go hand-in-hand with quiet villages, remote wilderness and a lively Old Town brought to life each night by artisanal markets and the glow of Ibiza’s legendary sunsets.

Formentera – the quieter, more relaxed and laidback sister to Ibiza. Formentera centers around sunshine and seafood, lapped by the warm Balearic Sea. The ideal location to embrace a health and digital detox, the island’s sophisticated slant on a Bohemian lifestyle encapsulates the entire region’s authentic offering.
