Are your guests looking to visit the romantic and secluded areas in the Balearics?
When we talk about the Balearics, many of us just think of the four main islands: Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. These stunning spots are where the majority of tourists and yacht charter guests flock to. And, it’s easy to understand why. They all offer exquisite restaurants, cultural hotspots, lively nightlife, and plenty of places to stay. But what about the hidden gems that are often unspoken about?
Where to go on a romantic yacht charter in the Balearics:
Formentera is one of the main four islands mentioned above, but as the smallest, it still holds much romantic charm. Time almost seems to stand still in Formentera, so relaxed is the atmosphere here. Its beaches – including the postcard-perfect Playa de Ses Illetes – are regularly ranked amongst the best beaches in Europe and even the world.
Formentera is located just over 20km from Ibiza, making it an easy hop over from the dance-all-night haven, yet offering a completely different atmosphere. Once guests arrive, the easiest way to get around is by bike or scooter. They can explore charming villages and beautiful coastline, or head off the beaten track to find the best-kept-secret restaurants offering exquisite Mediterranean cuisine. Formentera is also a great place to hike; there are breathtaking vistas from fields, clifftops, old lighthouses, and ancient caves. Or, guests can head below the crystal-clear water to see an array of colourful sea life in its natural habitat.
The next stop on guests’ charter in the Balearics should be the Cabrera Archipelago. Specifically, the beautiful island of Cabrera. The entire Archipelago is a designated Terrestrial and Maritime National Park, meaning its natural beauty has been protected and preserved.
The island is an extension of Mallorca’s Serra de Levante mountain range. And, offers superb underwater cliff diving, with approximately 200 species of fish living in the Marine Park. Tell your guests to look out for loggerhead turtles and dolphins while here. The island also acts as an important stop-over for around 150 species of birds during their migration; such as Storm Petrels, Cormorants, and many more winged creatures.
Another day, another secluded nature reserve! It is separated from Mallorca by a small channel. Measuring at just 6km long. This Island may be small but it sure is mighty! It gets its name from its unique shape, as it supposedly looks like a dragon.
Made up of three islets that you can hop between by tender, Dragonera is home to 361 different plant species. 18 of which are endemic to the Balearics. It is also home to a population of wall lizards. These lizards can only be found here. As well as an extensive list of seafaring birds including the Audouin’s gull and the Balearic shearwater.
In addition, guests can take in all the rare and unique fauna. And secondly, head to one of the many delightful Mallorcan bays. Here, guests can take a secluded swim or perhaps try stand-up paddle-boarding. Who wouldn’t feel romantic after an itinerary like that?
Find yourself a secluded spot and explore these romantic islands in the company of the one you love.
