The Balearic Islands are a yacht share paradise with countless stunning coves, secret beaches, craggy volcanic mountains and picturesque towns to explore. Add the famously year-long mild temperatures, relatively calm seas and lively island social life and they’re hard to beat. Perfect for yacht share newbies, it’s just as exciting for experienced sailors who want to venture further.
Mallorca, where the boats we’re featuring in this article are based, is the biggest island in the Balearic archipelago. The island’s capital, Palma, is also the islands’ capital. A dramatic World Heritage site, the mountains of the Sierra de Tramuntana, awaits you, as do the West Coast’s famously lovely beaches.
Ibiza is a real party island but it’s also brilliant for sailing, with a port that is itself a World Heritage Site. Sail away from the clubbing hot-spots to discover beautiful secluded coves and beaches. Menorca is possibly the least crowded island, perfect for peaceful, chilled sailing.
Formentera is the smallest of the main islands, an ex-hippy haven that retains a lovely, laid back feel and Ibiza’s closest neighbour. The island’s pure white sands and long beaches are some of the most beautiful in Europe. And there are some smaller islets, including Cabrera, Dragonera and S’Espalmador, to experience.
