Spain

Spain is a magnificent charter destination that offers you a chance to explore a destination known for its rich culture, excellent cuisine and passionate people. The third most visited country in the world, it has 4,964  kilometers of coastline and more than three hundred marinas. Chartering a yacht in Spain allows you to experience modern cities, bustling resort towns or quite nature experiences.

When it dives into the Mediterranean, the prolongation of the Betic Cordillera, rides between ocean basins and it emerges, with extraordinary beauty, as the Balearic archipelago. The Major Gymnesia (Majorca), and the Minor Gymnesia (Menorca) are the two larger islands. In the south, the Pine Islands, Ibiza and Formentera. Each of these four islands, floating serenely in the glittering Mediterranean, could be said to have a theme. Mallorca is the senior island, combining a little of everything, from spectacular mountain scenery and hiking through to the coastline of pristine beaches. Ibiza is the definition of clubbing, the island that gave Europe the rave, but without forgetting its turquoise waters. Menorca is a haven of tranquillity – splendid isolated beaches and coves, and prehistoric monuments standing as taciturn reminders of how small we are in the grand scheme of things. And tiny Formentera, a chill-out island, where some people lose themselves for the entire summer, needing little to keep them happy other than white beaches and luxury yacht sunset parties.
