A holiday on a spacious and comfortable sailing boat in the Balearic Islands, where you can visit Ibiza and Formentera and explore the bays that are unreachable by land. Ibiza is spectacular in any period of the year, but it is the same for Formentera, that’s why you might be not sure which one you want to visit first. Ibiza has a paradisiacal sea with a wonderful mix of colors where you can relax with delicious local mojitos and cool sea breezes, but also thanks to the splendor of its waters and the picturesque seabed. Formentera is the ideal place for the ones who love transparent water where you can swim, dive and go snorkeling. Cast off and visit the Balearics!

Day 1: Check-in
Boarding on Sunday afternoon from 6.00 pm at the Ibiza Marina, where a welcome drink will be waiting for you: a moment to get to know us all, but above all to better know the boat, especially for those who have never had a vacation on a boat. You can reach the Marina from the airport with the Bus nr. 10 at a cost of € 3.50. In the evening, after having taken a seat in your cabin (as indicated by the skipper) and met the other members of the crew, you'll be ready to go !!! ... evening in the narrow streets of the old town of Ibiza with a dinner with local specialties. You will be able to wait for the parade of discos for the city, if you want to. It is always a fun show with music and dancing ...
After breakfast there will be a briefing with the skipper before going, all together, to do the weekly galley (food shopping and drinks). Around noon we will be ready to maneuver to leave the mooring sailing for about 10 miles towards the natural reserve of Espalmador. This island can be reached only by boat: we will find miles of totally virgin white sand beaches, without any construction, except for a watch tower, the "Torre de Sa Guardiola"; so we will be in an exclusive and wild place at the same time. A dip in the water, a walk along the beautiful white and pink beach, a visit to the salt pans and we will enjoy the first aperitif with a beautiful sunset!
In the morning, when we wake up, we will have our breakfast together, surrounded by an exceptional spectacle of nature. A beautiful swim in the crystal clear waters is off towards the west of Ibiza, passing through Es Vedrà, for those who reach it for the first time: the magical island! Es Vedrà is wrapped in an aura of mystery and fascinating myths and suggestive legends revolve around it: some claim that it is the island of the Sirens told in the Odyssey of Ulysses, others tell that it is a remnant of the submerged civilization of Atlantis. We then continue to the Puesta del Sol, an Ibizan ritual that will remain one of the most unforgettable memories of the trip: the breathtaking sunset of Cala Comte, with the Conijera island as background, in one of the most beautiful chiringuites, enjoying the mojito sitting on the cliff.
When we wake up in Cala Comte we will take our last swim in this bay before hoisting the sails towards Cala Tarida, Cala D’Hort and Cala Llentresca: away like this to Formentera passing by the red cliffs of Porroig. In the evening we will sleep in Illetes: the famous sand strip of Formentera. The name means "beach of the small islands" and is so called because it is protected by several islets. Fine white sand, turquoise waters, totems made up of piles of stones erected by the hippies as a sign of their passage and as a good omen ... and a double sided sea, calm on one side, a real earthly paradise, and moved on the other, where surfers are always looking for waves to ride. Aperitif on the boat at sunset and then we'll have dinner all together ...
By now it's already Thursday, but we want to take you further south ... to show you one of the most suggestive bays in Formentera we go as far as Cala Saona. Even here the water is fantastic, you can see from the reflections on the boats hulls already from a mile away. Quiet and of a heavenly beauty, the soft white sand beach offers beautiful views of Punta Pedrera and Puta Rasa and offers the possibility of beautiful walks immersed in a verdant and silent panorama. There are also amazing cliffs under which you can snorkel, and here we will find the best mojito in the Balearics! The sunset on the coast is a show not to be missed: the contrast between the red color of the rocks and the intense blue of the sea, in addition to the background view of the island of Ibiza, is something truly unique in the world.
On Friday we will leave for a sail around the island of Formentera passing through Escalo ', splashing in the sea here and there, and then we'll anchor in the evening in Es Pujols to go ashore to visit Formentera. And for those who want good live music at Teatro Pereyra, the memory to take home will be even more beautiful! But even nightclubs are not lacking for those who still feel energetic!
Departure in the morning, sailing after a swim from the island of Formentera and headed to the salt pans of Ibiza for a last quick lunch all together and then off towards the marina for disembarking (at about 3 pm) to visit the old city of Ibiza. During our sailings you'll also learn some notions from sailing, like being able to steer and stay a bit at the winches, otherwise what kind of sailing holiday would this be?
Return to the Ibiza's Marina in the afternoon with the possibility of early disembarkation.
