Itinerary

Navigating Ibiza's Coastline

Navigating Ibiza's coastline is generally straightforward. The waters near the shore are predominantly deep, minimizing concerns regarding shallow areas.

However, it is prudent to exercise caution when traversing the passage between Espalmador and Ibiza, known as the Freu Grande. During periods of stronger winds, particularly, the sea in this area can exhibit rougher conditions. Nevertheless, with vigilance and prudent seamanship, navigating this passage can be managed effectively.

Wind and Weather Conditions

Wind and weather conditions in Ibiza, especially during the summer months, typically facilitate pleasant sailing experiences. Daytime winds commonly range from moderate to gentle, prevailing from the south to southwest.

Despite this, intermittent occurrences of stronger winds originating from various directions, such as the Levante from the east, the Sirocco from the south, or the Poniente from the west, are not uncommon. Fortunately, the island's geography affords numerous sheltered bays, enabling sailors to seek refuge and await more favorable conditions should the need arise.

Day 1: Sa Punta Galera

Sailing Time: Approximately 30-40 minutes  

Nautical Miles: 3 nautical miles

Departing from Sant Antoni de Portmany, set sail towards the northern east part of Ibiza to discover Sa Punta Galera. While technically not a beach, this rocky bay offers unparalleled beauty and tranquility. Dive into the azure waters, explore hidden coves in the cliffs, and bask in the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you.

Legend has it that this towering rock formation is imbued with supernatural energy, making it a magnet for artists, yogis, and UFO enthusiasts alike. Witness the mesmerizing sunset casting its golden glow over Es Vedrà, setting the tone for an enchanting week ahead.

Day 6: Formentera
