Top 5 beaches in the Balearic Islands

Top 5 beaches in the Balearic Islands

15th June 2020
Cruising on a superyacht is the perfect way to visit some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Come ashore by tender and make the most of these stunning settings. Why not ask your crew to prepare you an unforgettable beach picnic?
With over 300 days of sunshine, the sundrenched Balearic islands are known for their deep blue waters, dramatic calas (fjord-like inlets usually only accessible by boat) and magnificent sandy beaches. Here are our recommendations for the top five beaches to visit.
1. Cala Varques, Mallorca
You are likely to find yourselves the only visitors at Cala Varques, as the only access is by boat or a short but challenging walk. With no nearby hotels or services, this little beach will allow you to settle into a feeling of true isolation and privacy. Ask your crew to prepare a picnic to enjoy on the beach, and enjoy the sun after a swim through the natural caves in the cove.

2. Es Grau Beach, Menorca
Experience the natural side of the Balearics in the nature reserve at Es Grau. Protected from development, this unspoiled beach is surrounded by walking and cycling trails if you’re feeling adventurous, or for a relaxing day paddle in the shallow warm waters. Swim around the large rock to find a small and private cove, or take your tender to explore Arenal d’en Moro, another beautiful beach just next door.

3. Cala Bassa, Ibiza
Head away from the relentless party scene of Ibiza to experience the island’s laid back side. Accessible only by boat, Cala Bassa stays quieter than many of the Ibizan beaches and the intriguing rock formations create hundreds of rock pools, perfect for exploring. Lined with Sabina trees, the beach is ideal for relaxing in the shade and catching some cool sea breeze.

4. Platja Migjorn, Formentera
With no airport, Formentera has remained the quieter sister of Ibiza. Its rustic charm has attracted artists for decades, and sculptures still pepper the island. The beautiful long sandy stretch of Migjorn has something to suit any mood - if you’re feeling social head to 10Punto7 for a cocktail in the stylish surrounds but if you’re craving privacy explore one of the hidden corners for a secluded spot.

5. Es Portitxol, Ibiza
Away from the clubbers haven of Ibiza, Es Portitxol will transport you and captivate you with its natural beauty. The tiny patch of sand is only accessed by boat or a precarious path so you can be sure that the tourists will not find their way here! Dramatic tree lined cliffs plunge into the blue water and, as you soak in the scenery, your only company will be a local fisherman or two.
