Are you ready to explore hundreds of islets and chart a course around the major islands in the Balearics? If the answer is yes then you’re going to need to rent a motorboat in Balearic Islands without skipper.
Of course, there are a few caveats. You can only rent a motorboat without a skipper if you meet one of the following conditions:
- The vessel is less than 5 meters
- It has less than 30hp
- You have a skipper’s license
If you can match these conditions you can rent a motorboat in Balearic Islands without a skipper. But, if you don’t have a license and are opting for a smaller boat with less than 30hp, you’ll only be able to motor during the daytime and must stay within 2 miles of the shore.
That’s fine if you’re planning on mooring every night and just want to cruise around one island. But, if you haven’t got a skipper’s license and really want to see the Balearics, you’ll need a skipper because the experience isn’t complete unless you cruise around the biggest 4 islands.
There’s a lot to see on these islands and you don’t need to be hitting the party scene to appreciate the beauty of these islands!
On the northwestern side of Mallorca, you’ll find the Sierra de Tramuntana, these mountains are a World Heritage Site and create a stunning backdrop as you cruise along the coast.
On the other side of the island, you’ll find the mysterious caves of Drach which include an underwater lake. It’s worth cruising along the eastern coast and admiring Cala Ratjada. You can even go ashore at Cabrera, just below the southwestern corner of Mallorca, and appreciate the beauty of Cabrera National Park.
Don’t forget to include a visit to the uninhabited island of Sa Dragonera, just off the coast of Mallorca.
Menorca offers an opportunity to travel back in time at Isabel II Fortress. You’ll also find impressive ancient megaliths at Torre d’en Cavalls, as well as a beautiful lighthouse at Faro de Favaritx and an array of stunning beaches.
Ibiza is known as the party capital of the world but it’s also got some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. Check out Playa Cala Xarraca for some of the best snorkeling in the area. Cala Vadella has crystal clear water, and you’ll love the long sandy beach at Las Salinas.
You also have to visit the famous Café del Mar and enjoy the sunset.
Formentera is a more peaceful destination but still has some great beaches and a vibrant feel. You’ll find plenty of places to get quality food and can unwind in the peace of Cala Saona, before starting the cruise back to the Mallorca.
Don’t forget to allow yourself enough time to explore Palma itself. The city is a fascinating mix of the old and new with some great historical architecture and the UNESCO listed old town of Dalt Vila, where you’ll find some of the best-preserved buildings and great eateries.
