A Brief Introduction to Ibiza
Ibiza is the most iconic island in the Mediterranean due to its stunning bays, mythical islets and uniquely hedonistic culture. The island offers yacht charterers natural beauty, quiet coves, and an inexhaustible range of activities at land and at sea. In fact, large portions of the island such as "God's Finger" in the Benirràs Bay, are registered as U.N. World Heritage Sites, and thus protected from development. Therefore, chartering a boat in Ibiza provides you with endless opportunities to see the incredible landscapes from the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
Ibiza is the closest of all the Balearic islands to mainland Spain and offers 200 km (125 miles) of coastline, providing visitors with over 50 excellent beaches. When combined with her neighbouring island of Formentera, known as 'Ibiza's chilled out sister", the two "Pine Islands" provide an excellent array of sun drenched activies and attractions, including the best restaurants and beach clubs in the Mediterranean.
Chartering in Ibiza
Ibiza is one of our most successful summer yacht charter destinations for all types of charters - be it a luxury super yacht, a stunning crewed motor yacht, catamaran or bareboat sailing yacht. Given the extreme popularity each summer, we recommend booking well in advance so that your broker can secure your preferred yacht and help you with your itinerary and berthing options.
Crewed Ibiza Yacht Charters
Ibiza provides all the key elements for a crewed motor yacht charter - great anchorages, world class shopping, top restaurants, exciting nightlife and scenic destinations such as Formentera. Enjoy long lunches at Beso Beach in Formentera, Blue Marlin in Es Jondal or the wonderful Cotton Beach Club close to the majestic Es Vedra rock formation. Don't forget the mesmerising sunsets over San Antonio, as well as from your serene anchorage in Formentera. Given the close proximity to neighbouring Mallorca, family yacht charter holidays can often combine both destinations, so that you will experience two of the Balearic Islands on the same vacation.
Ibiza Crewed Catamarans
Mainly influenced by constant easterly winds, Ibiza is an excellent year round sailing destination. Offering outstanding anchorages all around the island, especially to the south close to Formentera, chartering a crewed catamaran in the Balearics has never been a better choice. Enjoy shallow waters with crystal clear anchorages, spectacular rock formations and fascinating sailing. With great volumes, spacious deck areas and fantastic selections of water toys, choosing a catamaran for your family this summer is the obvious choice.
Ibiza Charter Destinations
The main city of the island is Ibiza, on the south of the island. The other two major cities are Santa Eulària des Riu (further east) and Sant Antoni de Portmany (on the west coast, and therefore known for its sunsets). A cruise around the island generally includes a stop in Santa Eulalia, a tour of the rugged North Coast, and a stop off in Sant Antoni (often referred to as San Antonio) and of course a stop in the Old Port of Ibiza.
Santa Eulària des Riu offers with beauty, serenity, light and tradition. The key sights in the town are the Puid de Missa, declared a site of scenic beauty by the Ministry of Culture in 1952. The church, built in the 16th century as part of the island’s defences, was a centrepiece for the construction of the first houses in the town in the following century.
There are plenty of churches to explore including Marede Deu de Jesus, Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera, and Charles de Peralta. There is also a 400+ meter aquaduct, built in the first century AD. There are several beautiful beaches near Santa Eulària that offer great sand, beautiful views and clean waters. Nudism is practised on most beaches.
Sant Antoni (San Antonio)
San Antonio is famous for its sunsets and lively nightlife. The port will often have scores of Ibiza charter boats and luxury yachts anchored, adding to the festivities and exciting vibe of the white island.
The square of San Antonio boasts a wide selection of restaurants and cafes offering a view over the bay. It is also the best place from which to watch the large Fireworks Display which celebrates the fiesta of Saint Bartholomew on the 24 August.
The 'West End' is where all the night life in Sant Antoni is centered. The main street is the Carrer de Santa Agnès, which hosts a variety of bars and small clubs ranging from the Dance and House music Ibiza is famed for, to Rock and Indie music. Popular bars include Viva, Hush, Koppas, Tropicana, Soul City, Funky Flares, Ground Zero and The Huddle Bar.
