The Balearic Islands archipelago (Menorca, Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera) is located around 100 nautical miles east off the coast of Spain. Despite the influx of summer tourists, each island has retained its intrinsic beauty.
Make the most of the Balearic Islands
Hidden behind the prestigious resorts and bars, this charter destination is rich in Gothic cathedrals, ancient ruins, authentic fishing villages, preserved olive groves and other typical fauna and flora. Each island harbours its own unique treasures to discover!
Charter Highlights in the Balearic Islands
We have selected three highlights for a charter in the Balearic Islands so you can get a taste of what this fabulous charter destination has waiting for you.
01 Unspoilt Nature
There is no lack of beautiful scenery in the Balearics; visit its parks and reserves to enjoy nature preserved in all its glory. We particularly recommend the mountains of Tramuntana on the north coast of Menorca, whose dramatic appearance will take your breath away.
02 Nightlife and Beach Clubs
The rich nightlife of these islands is no secret; party until sunrise in some unique destinations, for example the Cova d’en Xoroi in Mahón, the capital city of Menorca – this disco, situated in a natural cave, is guaranteed to give you a night you will never forget.
03 Hidden Coves
Discover isolated coves along the rocky and sandy coastline. Be assured that you will be able to anchor in a paradise reserved for you: by yacht you will always be able to find privacy because many of the island’s beautiful coves and inlets are difficult to access except by private boat.

Day 12 Disembarkation - Alcudia, Palma de Mallorca
On your final day of charter, either disembark in the South of Menorca to head to the airport to fly home, or sail for several hours to Alcudia in Mallorca and disembark there, if you wish to prolong your adventure and if your return flight is from this airport.
