Perhaps the most well know island in the med, Ibiza is so much more than just a party island! The island itself is so enchanting that it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With striking scenery, idyllic beaches and quaint fishing villages, you discover a new side to Ibiza toy never knew existed. That said, it is home to some of the best beach clubs and bars in the world, so if it’s a party you’re looking for you’re sure to get it here!
Day 1 – Ibiza Town
One of the oldest and most beautiful harbours in the Med, under the imposing Dalt Vila. You’ll pick up your yacht in Ibiza Town, home to an array of some of the finest bars, restaurants and clubs awaits the hedonistic. Your yacht will be ready for collection from 7pm just in time for sunset drinks aboard. We’d suggest, making yourself comfortable, familiarising yourself with the boat and spending the evening in the harbour.
Day 2 – Cala Jondal
Our suggestion would be set sail in morning and head down the South East coast of Ibiza. Stop for a refreshing morning swim anchored off the ever-eventful Playa d’en Bossa. For lunch you could sail to the south east corner of the island and visit the famous Las Salinas beach, home to famous bars like Sa Trinxa, The Jockey Club and El Chiringuito.
Enjoy an afternoon of swimming and lunching in Las Salinas, then set sail for Cala Jondal, home to the iconic Blue Marlin beach club. Whether you just want to swim in the sea and watch the crowd ashore or join in, you will be able to enjoy live entertainment including Spanish music, dancers and DJs, amazing food and sunset tunes.
Day 3 – Formentera
Today we’d advise heading for one of the treasures of the Med and home of the stunning natural landscapes and the finest white sand beach in the world, Ses Illetes. A melting pot of people who escape Ibiza for the day, Formentera has become an attraction in its own right over the last 10 years. Think Italian playboys, supermodels and Ibizans escaping for the day… all casting their envious eyes on you as you arrive on your yacht. After a dramatic entrance and in stark contrast to the lively antics of the previous evening, you could spend a peaceful night at anchor, under the stars.
Day 4 – San Antonio
Set sail from Formentera heading north passing the imposing Es Vedra. Many myths exist about Vedra, including the fact that it is one of the most magnetic places on earth. Sail around the majestic islands off San Antonio Bay and anchor for the afternoon off the area known as Playa Cala Conta and the famous Sunset Ashram. Swim blissfully in some of the clearest water on the island, or paddle ashore for a cocktail at the bar!
That evening you could head ashore to the famous Port de Sant Antoni (San Antonio) and enjoy supper in one of the many traditional tapas restaurants in the old town, upmarket dining around the Yacht club, bustling pre-club bars, or perhaps a quick visit to the famous Pikes Hotel, favoured by the likes of Freddy Mercury and the setting for Wham’s music video, Club Tropicana.
Day 5 – Cala Sardina
San Antonio is without a doubt the liveliest evening of you week, so you’ll more than likely be in need of a chilled-out day and night to follow. After a late morning, either breakfast in one of the wholesome brunch restaurants or on board the boat, follow the coast northwards. Stop for a swim or paddle board wherever you fancy before arriving at Cala Sardina (providing the weather in good and stable). Marvel at the natural amphitheatre of the surrounding cliffs, providing the backdrop for the delightful stone fisherman’s huts. You’ll be privy to a spectacular sunset, with just the peace and quiet of you and your crew.
Day 6 – Portinatx
To make the most of the island, we’d suggest starting the day sailing northwards, along the wild and stunning West coast of Ibiza. A lunch swim at the beach voted the 2nd finest in all of Europe and our personal favourite from having travelled the world – Cala Salada – before a late afternoon sail towards the North of Ibiza. Revealing some of the most awe dropping cliffs and rock formations in all the Med. Spend the night in the former fishing village of Portinatx, before the boom in tourism in Ibiza, this used to be one of the best anchorages on the island.
Day 7 – Ibiza Town
An impressive sail around the North of the island where you’ll be greeted with magnificent sight of the open sea and if you’re luck a glimpse of Mallorca in the distance. Follow the island round, take advantage of being away from the tourist trail, enjoy the quaint coves, take in the spectacular scenery of the stunning Aguas Blancas – a favourite of the locals. Enjoy a last lunch one of Ibiza’s best kept secrets Cala Bonita, before sailing south to return to Ibiza Town.
