The Balearics

There are four primary islands in the Balearics chain – Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera – and with more than 300 days of sun each year, they enjoy a superb yachting climate.

With a glamorous clientele and buzzing nightlife set against a rustic backdrop is a unique experience. The natural harbours found in the Balearics are considered to be one of the worlds best.

The thriving tourist industry often sees Mallorca and Ibiza dismissed as mere bastions of youthful excess, but with elegance and rusticity in equal measure, there is much more to these shores than that. Head for Menorca in the east or Formentera in the far west and the secluded coves, ancient monuments and protected marine parks conjure up an altogether gentler, more relaxed form of Balearic charter experience. There are many exquisite anchorages where you will witness cobalt blue waters and white sands as if it was from a postcard.

Mahon clings to a ridge above a saltwater inlet at the apex of a natural port that is not just the largest in the Balearics but one of the largest in the whole of Europe. It remains, however, a very charming, small-scale and intimate city, with indisputably elegant Georgian-style architecture and a relaxed alfresco food culture that quickly salves the mind. Though it enjoys a pleasant seasonal buzz, it’s rarely overcrowded outside of the riotous Nuestra Señora de Gràcia Festival in September.
