More and more tourists are attracted each year to Spain with its natural and historical attractions. Spain also owns a group of islands in the western Mediterranean, which has become popular as the best region for yachting in Spain. The archipelago consists of four main islands: Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, with a variety of smaller islands. The Balearic Islands captivate your heart with their crystal-clear water, rocky shores and snow-white beaches. All in all, there are 61 bays and around 20,000 anchorages on the Balearic Islands and 550 sea miles of the varied coastline of the four big islands offer solutions for any kind of yacht vacation!
Each of the four Balearic Islands - Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera - has its own unique character and each of them offers a variety of emotions and unforgettable impressions!
It is the largest of the islands housing the
capital of the Region - Palma, famous for its majestic Gothic cathedral
domineering over the ocean of masts swaying to the music of the waves in the
numerous marines. The island offers wonderful beaches and splendid routes for
mountain walks with spectacular views.
The island of Ibiza offers a beautiful
contrast between the islands remote coastal walks, hidden coves, snow sandy
beaches and dense pine forests to the thriving nightclub and dance scene which
attracts leading DJ's and bands from around the world to perform at the many
well known and legendary nightclubs and bars on the island.
It is the kingdom of peace and calm, a blend of divine quiet beaches and rocky bays where you can hide to get away from the noise and the busy life of the islands among the ruins of the Stone Age.
The island of the happy-go-lucky who after
contemplating sunsets on the beach goes to have fun at beach parties. In this
paradise of the sea and white sand many Europeans spend the whole summer
getting out of touch with reality and losing the sense of time.
