Mention the Balearics and many people will think of Ibiza and partying hard. Others may think of Mallorca and the fact it’s a haven for the rich and famous. Both images can make it difficult to imagine yourself visiting for a more conventional holiday.
However, it’s time you decided to rent a catamaran in Balearic Islands with skipper. There’s a lot more to these islands that you may have realized, you need a boat to really appreciate them.
A catamaran is a great choice as it’s fast and comfortable. Thanks to their twin-hull design they are generally more stable than any monohulled boat. This also helps them to move through the water faster and the dual hulls give more space inside the vessel. Of course, they are wider which can make navigating in marinas and harbors more difficult.
If you have little or no experience with boats then renting a catamaran in Balearic Islands with skipper is a great place to start. The sea is generally calm, the winds are light, and the weather is warm.
Choose between sail and power, the number of berths you need, and your budget. You’ll be surprised at how affordable it is to rent a catamaran in Balearic Islands with skipper through Sailogy.
Ibiza has the party reputation but it also has some great beaches. You’ll want to check out Platja d’en Bossa, Cala Comte, and Cala d’Hort. They are all stunning beaches where you’ll be able to drop anchor, enjoy a drink, and get the snorkeling gear out.
You also need to check out Ibiza town. Yes, it gets rowdy late at night but you can enjoy some great food and have a drink while watching the sunset as Café del Mar.
Just south of Ibiza is the smaller island of Formentera. On the way there you’ll need to stop at S’Espalmador, a sandy stretch with turquoise sea that will remind you of the Caribbean. This small island is also home to the undeveloped Calo Des Mort which has impressive views across the Med, while the Far de la Mola lighthouse is also worth seeing, from land as well as sea.
It will take you roughly 5-6 hours to get from Formentera to Mallorca, you’ll want to stop at Palma and admire the capital city. It’s vibrant and full of life at all hours of the day. You’ll find friendly locals and some of the best food anywhere in the Balearics.
From here you can sail or motor around the island. It’s best to give yourself a week to really appreciate everything the island has to offer. Just north of Palma you’ll find the mountains that dip right into the sea. Along the northern coast is an abundance of bays and secluded swimming spots. Dropping across the top you’ll start to head south as you come across Port de Pollensa, where there is the famous yacht club. There are also numerous caves along the eastern coast and an underground lake that’s well worth a look.
From this side of the island, you can motor across to Menorca, the smaller island has a more laidback approach but is still worth visiting. In fact, there are in excess of 100 hiking trails and you’ll need to see El Toro, the tall mountain top fort with a 360° view across the island and the surrounding seas.
It’s also worth checking out Cala Galdana, a beach of golden sand, deep blue water, and pine trees. There is also the Parc Natural de s’Albufera.
Moving back toward Palma you’ll need to travel along the south coast of Mallorca where you’ll find Cala Figuera, a picturesque fishing village. Cabrera also sits off the southern coast, it’s a designated national park and has some truly impressive flora and fauna.
