Yacht Hire Barcelona

YACHT HIRE BARCELONA

There is almost literally nothing quite like the feeling of taking to the sea in a luxury yacht, on a trip to seek out the most beautiful spots of the Mediterranean. Whether you’d like to take a tour of one or all of the Balearic Islands or to explore further along Spain’s beautiful coastline and many stunning islands, you should arrive at every destination on your itinerary by sea, in true style.

 

Yacht Hire BarcelonaIbiza Party Packages

If you’re looking for a trip that takes in the best nightclubs and beach bars of the Mediterranean, with the precious luxury of returning to your home on the water when you’re ready to escape the crowds (or to travel to the next party spot!), a luxury yacht charter in Ibiza is right for you. From smaller vessels that will escort you to your destinations of choice in the utmost style, to something crazy like a boat with a helicopter pad for those who really want to make their mark, there is a wealth of options to choose from.

Marina Botafoch is one of Ibiza’s most sought out marinas, attracting some of the most beautiful yachts in summer. Then there’s Marina Magna with its city centre location, beneath the Old Town. For those who like to really be in the thick of the action, Club Nàutic Sant Antoni is the spot to step from yacht direct to a club. Whatever you choose, Ibiza yachting will truly show you the meaning of a luxury party life.

Don’t forget, there are many options for Barcelona partying by night or alternative express getaways. Or, you can book your luxury Ibiza yacht right now.

 

Yacht Hire BarcelonaBalearic Cruises

A Balearic adventure can begin at Barcelona, or you can get started on the island of your choice. The major Balearics: Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera, are only a short hop away. Whichever yacht tour of the Balearic Islands is on your wish list, we can design the perfect luxury cruise for you.

Formentera Boat Hire

A private boat to Formentera is a wonderful option to extend your adventure, particularly if you’re visiting neighbouring Ibiza. The smallest and arguably most unspoiled island of the four is not reachable by plane, meaning that a trip there by boat feels all the more exclusive. The natural world is at its best in Formentera, and when you sail into the perfect snorkelling waters and see the never-ending stretches of white sand on offer, you are sure to agree.

Mallorca Superyacht Hire

For those with a desire for something a little bigger, another option is to hire a superyacht for a day trip to Mallorca. The largest of the Balearics is truly beautiful if you know where to sail, and it has something for everyone. When it comes to finding a port, the Andratx Marina offers direct access to crystal clear blue waters, or Club de Mar Mallorca is the prestigious yacht club that offers spots for small boats and mega yacht charters alike. Whichever your preferences, we can show you the Mallorca that is right for you.

Menorca Luxury Yacht Hire

Don’t forget the perfect beaches of Menorca, which are perhaps the best of the Balearics. On your luxury yacht, you will have exclusive access to the tranquil turquoise coves of Cala Turqueta or Cala Pregonda and will be able to see Menorca in the best way imaginable.

Wherever you set sail, before you know it you’ll be relaxing on the deck surrounded by crystal clear blue water champagne in hand (if that’s your thing), sailing the Mediterranean on your way the most beautiful spots we know. Our luxury yacht charters can be in the form of a day trip or can last as long as you’d like to explore Spain from the sea.

Caldereta of Menorca

CALDERETA DE LANGOSTA OF MENORCA

Our Gastronomic Getaway

Almost every part of Spain has a food type or a dish that it is best known for and most proud of. So, in a country as gastronomically rich as Spain, travelling can very easily end up being a delicious experience! In the future, we’ll be sampling the seafood of Galicia or the fine restaurants of the Basque Country, but our latest trip was to Menorca for the typical Balearic classic, Caldereta de Langosta.

Restaurante Es CrancBarcelona to Menorca by Private Jet

After a short flight by private jet with a little Krug Champagne to start things off, we’d transported our guests from Barcelona to Menorca in no time. Menorca holidays are less common than those to many other parts of Spain, meaning this island paradise is one of the most authentic and unspoilt parts of the Balearics. It would take no more than a quick trip to one of the stunning beaches on offer for you to see what we mean, perhaps the aptly named Cala Turqueta (turquoise bay) in the west.

Restaurante Es Cranc

Having taken in a few breathtaking vistas it was time to seek out the driving force behind this pilgrimage of the palette; lunch! Restaurante Es Cranc is in the north of the island. It is traditional but not stuffy, unfussy but unsurpassed in service, a little rustic (you will receive a bib), and overall a wonderful Mecca of Red Lobster.

Now, we would suggest that food like this is best enjoyed with the finest white wines that are available to the lucky diner, but there is plenty on offer in the food alone, for teetotallers and beer drinkers alike, so let’s get started with the gastronomy…

Tortillitas de Gambas

First up were the Tortillitas de Gambas, a nod to the food of Andalusia (watch this space for more). This delicious tapa consists of crisp fried prawn cakes, which proved to be a mouthwatering and perfect opener to our Menorcan food fiesta. Next, Cigalas a la Plancha, better known in English as grilled crayfish. This time around the ingredients were allowed to do the talking. A simple preparation of the freshest and highest quality crayfish was just delicious.

Caldereta de Langosta

Then the main event, Caldereta de Langosta. This dish came about in the early twentieth century when, as with so many coastal classics, fishermen would eat it daily. Today, Caldereta is the hallmark of the Bay of Fornells, home to Es Cranc. The crustaceans are brought to their flavoursome potential in a clay pot, on a base of tomato, peppers, onion and few more essentials. The richness of the flavour (coupled with a little vino blanco) was worth the trip alone.

And so, replete after some of the finest cuisine that the Balearics have to offer, and having enjoyed one of the best things to do in Menorca, we re-boarded our airborne taxi to Barcelona to plan our next gastronomic getaway. It won’t be long before we return. With the amazing beaches on offer and many more foodie treats to enjoy, how could we not come back soon? And did anyone say Menorca gin…
