The region is famous for its excellent climate, beautiful creeks, wonderful sunsets, exuberant nature and makes for an excellent yacht charter destination. The Balearics combine centuries of Spanish history with modern elegance; many trendy spots are now complementing the charming medieval streets, cathedrals and traditional fishing ports. Experience the Balearics on your charter yacht at your own rhythm: whether you want to rest and enjoy the rustic charm or spend the craziest nights of your summer, the Spanish islands offer something for everyone. Minorca and Formentera are real Mediterranean yacht charter gems and a bit quieter than neighbouring Ibiza and Majorca. Good news is: the four islands of Menorca, Formentera, Ibiza and Majorca lie within easy cruising distance so we recommend a combined yacht charter itinerary. Summer is definitely the busiest season for yacht charters in the Balearics, however the fall is a great time of the year to cruise the Balearics.
CRUISE! DISCOVER, TASTE, VISIT & ENJOY
At Talamare, we believe that experience can turn a special yacht charter into an extra special one. Take a look at the few examples below and contact our charter planners for details and recommendations.
For a day ashore
We recommend you visit the medieval town of Alcudia. The historic centre is enclosed within ancient defense walls and is a mix of winding streets and historical churches. The rural area around Alcudia is beautiful. For lunch or dinner, head to Son Brull hotel which is located in the countryside and boasts an enchanting outside setting. Alternatively, Jardin is great in Alcudia.
Buy traditional shoes
The reputation of Menorca shoes is well established. The fashion enthusiasts can choose between the sophisticated models of the Mascaro house or the famous basic and colorful sandals, created in the 1950s for the peasants, redesigned for fun.
Sunset horse riding
A truly amazing experience! Enjoy a horse ride through a rural trait at the Ibiza Horse Valley. For years, David and Monique have been rescuing horses and training them for horse treks. A great way to connect with nature and beginners are welcome!
Our favourite spots
The smallest island of the Balearic Islands is also the most stylish! Often compared the Caribbean, Formentera boasts beautiful white sandy beaches lined with turquoise waters, preserved from luxurious hotels that have encroached the beautiful shores of its neighbors.
This lively restaurant located beneath a shady pine forest (no sea view!) is the best spot to enjoy a delicious paella. The atmosphere goes up with the DJ and makes it a great place to party.
