Example Yacht Charter Itinerary – The Balearics: The Fabulous Four
Four islands with four distinctly different personalities, the Balearics are perfect for everyone. Whether you are interested in partying the night away, or in secluded anchorages, hiking in the mountains, snorkeling in clear blue waters, or just basking in the relentless Mediterranean sunshine on your yacht that you have chartered from Taylor’d Yacht Charters, magic is just a short cruise away. Easy to get to, impossible to forget: Formentera, Ibiza, Majorca, and Menorca are waiting for you
Day 1: Arrive in Ibiza and be greeted at the airport by your captain who will accompany you to your charter yacht from Taylor’d Yacht Charters.
As soon as you are settled, the yacht will depart for the lovely island of Formentera to spend the day in quiet comfort, snorkeling, and swimming. Return to Ibiza for a night of fun.
Day 2: Enjoy a leisurely breakfast (or lunch, depending on what time you returned to the yacht from the clubs!) as you motor up the coast of Ibiza Cala D’en Serra. This exquisite sandy cove has turquoise waters that are perfect for snorkeling. Dinner will be served al fresco under star-studded skies. Following dinner, the yacht will depart for Mallorca, anchoring off the rugged island of Cabrera, if the weather is good.
Day 3: Leave Cabrera for Palma, taking time to explore the city, including the La Seu Cathedral and the surrounding sights. Return to the yacht for “lunch underway” as you head on up to Porto Cristo to visit the Coves del Drac, a wonderful cave with an astounding subterranean lake. Back to the boat, and it is just a short cruise up to Port d’Alcudia. Enjoy dinner on board, or try out the local cuisine.
Day 4: After breakfast, you might opt to take a short bike ride to the Parc Natural De S’Albufera for a chance to see some unusual species of birds. Then, back to the yacht for some watersports before leaving for Menorca. Either anchor or dock in the capital city of Mao (Mahon) for the evening.
Day 5: Depart after breakfast for the northern end of Menorca to Fornells. This pretty fishing village is situated at the mouth of a long bay. There are several anchorages here, each one nicer than the one before. Your captain will choose the one perfect for you. Spend the rest of the day playing in the water, and the evening anchored under the stars in your beautiful yacht from Taylor’d Yacht Charters.
Day 6: Enjoy breakfast underway, as your yacht departs early for the Port de Soller, a beautiful natural harbor surrounded by the spectacular mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana.
If you are a music lover, you might want to hire a car and visit the Carthusain Monastery of Validemossa, where Chopin spent time.
Day 7: Take a lovely short journey back to Palma in time to depart from the airport to Majorca, where you will catch a flight back to Ibiza, or simply leave from Palma to your final destination. You will have good memories of the Balearics in the Mediterranean.
