Catamarans are known to be more stable than monohull boats. They are also faster than a traditional sailing boat and you can choose to have a sailing catamaran or one that uses a motor. In short, they are the perfect solution when exploring multiple islands.
Sailogy has a great selection of catamarans just waiting for you to look at. Choose the one you want and rent a catamaran in the Balearic Islands with or without a skipper. The prices are affordable, the level of comfort is impressive, and you’ll find the boat is surprisingly smooth, even if the waves become a little choppy.
We can help you choose the right boat and give you advice regarding what route you want to take around the islands. The final decision is yours and there are a lot of options to choose from!
The best part is that you can choose your preferred departure port. While Palma in Mallorca is a popular choice, you may prefer to start in Menorca or Ibiza, allowing you to sail through the islands. We recommend that you give yourself a week to sail around Mallorca, another week around Menorca, and perhaps another week for Ibiza and Formentera.
If you’re planning on cruising around Mallorca it's worth stopping at Palma, the port is vibrant and full of life. As well as great shopping and eating it’s worth looking at the old town which is UNESCO listed. You should also check to see if any festivals are on, such as the Deia International Music Festival or the Classical Music Festival, as you may want to soak up the ambiance from the shoreline.
Mallorca also hosts sailing competitions such as the Princesa Sofia Trophy and the Mapfre Copa del Rey Regatta. Renting a boat during these will be more expensive and finding a mooring may be harder. Speak to the Sailogy team first to find out if this is the right time for you to rent a catamaran in the Balearic Islands.
Ibiza is known as the party capital of Europe but, while you can enjoy the party atmosphere, there is much more to the island than alcohol. There are plenty of beautiful beaches and secluded coves dotted along the coastline, some of which are only accessible by boat. You’ll find the best ones on the east and south coasts, these are also the best-sheltered bays.
Ibiza town itself has a walled citadel with narrow alleyways that dates back several hundred years. Being on a boat means you can sit offshore at Ibiza Town and San Antoni to experience them fighting for the top spot as the most outrageous location. It’s fun to watch.
Heading south from Ibiza you’ll find Puerto El Espalmador, it’s between Ibiza and Formentera and is a well sheltered sandy anchorage where you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the Caribbean. It’s busy during the day and simply stunning at night.
On your way back to Mallorca it’s worth looking at Cabrera, the small island of the southwest coast of Mallorca which is a dedicated nature reserve. You should book a mooring in advance and be prepared to be amazed at the array of flora and fauna present.
There are delightful coves and towns dotted along the coast of Mallorca and some stunning caves on the eastern coast, complete with underwater lakes. You can even cruise the Med to Menorca where you’ll find a scaled-down version of Mallorca, perfect for enjoying the finer things in life while unwinding.
The list of things to see and do is virtually limitless, you’ll run out of time before you run out of things to do!
