We currently have about 200 ships in Spanish waters. However, in a few days, our YachtSys system will be connected to our online search engine, which covers virtually all vessels available in the Balearic Islands. Our offer of boats in Mallorca and Menorca will become by far the largest in the market.
The Balearics are an entire yachting marina full of beauty. And each of the three islands, Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, is a separate yachting area. With stable weather, this is the longest season for yachting
throughout the Mediterranean (comparable to Sicily or the southern Turkish coast). Due to the relatively long distance between the islands, you probably will not cross from one to the other should you sail here.
The largest of the Balearic Islands is Mallorca (most charters and boats are located here). It combines everything we love about yachting: beautiful nature, rich history, coves, beaches, small ports and adjacent islands. Palma de Mallorca
is a magnificent medieval town and harbor that has been held in high esteem since the times of ancient Greece.
We definitely recommend visiting the Cabrera National Park
and Nature Reserve. It is located to the south of Mallorca, and a permit and payment is necessary for entrance, but it is a thoroughly worthwhile experience. It is an ideal place for snorkeling and scuba diving. Not to be missed.
The sailing season in the Balearic Islands lasts from April until the end of October. However, despite the steady climate, conditions at sea are changeable: summer is ideal for a family holiday
, September and October become very windy and suitable especially for competitive yachting. When the mistrel blows and the northern wind from the Gulf of Lyon picks up, it can be extremely challenging and high waves can make sailing very unpleasant. On the other hand, with a stronger wind, you can sail all three islands in a week.
Canary Islands Coastlines
The continental coast of Spain will be especially interesting for those who are fond of Spanish culture and countryside. There are so many incredible places to explore – albeit, not so many from a yachting point of view. Lines of crowded beaches at times spoil the beautiful historic cities, yet it becomes more interesting "below" Barcelona and even better south of Valencia
. The coastline is less crowded by tourists, although it would struggle to match picturesque Croatia in a beauty contest.
The stretch from Gibraltar towards Cádiz
proves fascinating: the Atlantic coast of Spain is very pretty. However, there are currents, strong tides, the weather is unstable, and the yachting is demanding. A further chapter to sailing in Spanish waters is located in the Canary Islands.
La Palma, El Hierro, La Gomera... Be aware that this involves highly demanding ocean sailing for experienced yachtsmen.
