The Balearic Islands – A love story!

To those in the know, the hidden delights of Mallorca and Ibiza have long been a fixture on any Western Mediterranean itinerary. Mass tourism may have taken hold around a few towns, but you’ll fall in love with myriad secluded coves and impossibly beautiful beaches. And with recent amendments to Spain’s matriculation tax, these islands are looking even more attractive as superyacht charter destinations.

Family fun in the Balearics

Mallorca is well known as a superyachting center (not least with Burgess’ local office in Port Adriano), with Palma offering great marinas and facilities. This southern part of Mallorca is also the best place to seek out Michelin star cuisine, such as the Restaurant Zaranda in the Castell Son Claret. The west coast is dominated by the stunning Sierra de Tramuntana – a ridge of soaring mountains falling as cliffs into the clear sea. By far the best way to explore is by yacht – anchor in deep azure coves that can only be accessed by perilous goat tracks on land. Explore traditional mountain villages such as Robert Grave’s beloved Deia and quaint Valldemossa. If the wind gets up, Port de Sóller offers safe harbor as well as some excellent restaurants and hotels.

Just off the southern coast of Mallorca lies the Cabrera archipelago, a perfect spot to visit by superyacht. Access is restricted to this National Park; a limited number of yachts get 24-hour permits and with fewer than 100 residents onshore, tranquility is assured. Immerse yourself in pristine bays rimmed with deserted beaches, explore the ancient castle and enjoy the superb diving (subject to permit.)

Ibiza Charter

From here, Ibiza is just a few hours away. There are a string of lovely bays such as Cala Portinatx along the north coast giving those arriving by yacht the distinct advantage of the best views of Ibiza’s quietest beaches. Burgess broker Mirta Lupa will be in Ibiza this summer and can point you in the direction of the best places to visit.  Sure to be on the ‘must not miss’ list is the anchorage at the southernmost tip of Ibiza, where a slender strip of white sand extends to Formentera in aquamarine sea... Arriving on your own yacht means you can choose to come here early or late in the day to miss the crowds. On Ibiza itself, you can seek out some fascinating places to eat and drink: Sa Capella restaurant in San Antonio offers stylish dining in a converted church – or try Bambuddha Restaurante in Santa Gertrudis where the ultracool come to lounge in sumptuous surroundings. Enjoy a romantic sundowner at the famous Cafe del Mar, or if you prefer a more exclusive venue, The Eden Restaurant in San Miguel is perched atop 180m cliffs with fantastic sunset views.

The abundant charms of the Balearics are sure to seduce those heading here by yacht for the first time, while old hands will always find something new to discover and fall in love all over again.
