Famous for its tapas, flamenco, architecture, beach, and culture, the country of Spain is a popular destination for just about any type of traveler. And we can see why. Along with its stunning mountain ranges and vibrant cities, Spain is also mostly surrounded by water. It has the longest coastline in the Mediterranean.
Along with its coastline, it is also home to over 60 islands, including the Balearic Islands, which are an archipelago in the Balearic Sea and consist of four main islands, Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera, all of which are popular destinations, although some more than others. Ibiza is an internationally known party destination where the many famous DJs play at the most exclusive nightclubs. Mallorca, also known as Majorca, is renowned for its coastline, secluded coves, architecture, beaches, and delicious cuisine, including wine. Although less famous than its two other siblings, Menorca is still a popular destination for beach-goers as it is home to turquoize-watered bays called calas and an extensive coastline. Formentera is the smallest of the islands, but still a pleasure to visit as its turquoise blue waters and gorgeous sandy beaches make it the perfect day trip if you are looking to spend the way out in the sun or snorkeling underneath the water.
The best time to visit Spain is during the shoulder season, either in the spring (April-May) or the autumn months (September-October). During these months, the weather is still pleasant, the days are long, and there are fewer crowds. Most of Spain enjoys a Mediterranean climate which means that summer can get unbearably hot, the busiest periods in Spain are in July and August, especially on the southern coast.
With a coastline of over 3,000 miles and 60 islands, it is no surprise that Spain is the perfect place to charter a yacht. Along with vibrant cities, beautiful seaside communities, and stunning beaches, Spain is one of the top countries in the world in terms of Blue Flag beaches, an award for international recognition of safety, accessibility, and cleanliness.
Chartering a yacht in Spain means that you can explore the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona in the morning, soaking up the cultural scene in Valencia in the afternoon and ending off the night partying in Ibiza. Spain’s mix of cities and islands means that yachters can experience several different itineraries, discovering cities paired with days spent exploring hidden cays. The possibilities are endless in Spain.
