Your 10-Day Cruising Itinerary for a Perfect Trip on the Balearic Islands

View of Ibiza from Formentera

Whether you’re seeking true extravagance or pure relaxation, we have chosen the perfect 10-day itinerary that has it all

A Spanish archipelago in the western Mediterranean, the Balearic Islands enjoy a blissfully sunny climate and their calm, clean waters attract elite seafarers from Monaco to Malibu. Peaceful and pastoral, or hedonistic and glitzy – you can shape your experience of the Balearics entirely to your own tastes, and this guide simply pins some flags in our favorite places.

The ten-day itinerary includes three of the four main islands – Ibiza, Formentera and Mallorca – beginning in Ibiza Town and ending in Palma, the region’s vibrant capital. Along the way you’ll encounter secluded beaches, sleepy villages, a vast mountain range and rolling groves of olives and citrus fruit. Gastronomic wonders will greet you at every turn, from the traditional lobster stew to Michelin-starred degustación, and oenophiles will delight in the fruity local wines.

Each island has its own unique character. Ibiza’s sandy shores and beach bars throng with headturning A-listers, and if you’re in the mood to party you’re in the land that invented the word. Formentera is an unsung slice of paradise with its turquoise seas and powdery white dunes, while Mallorca has it all – nature reserves, chic marinas, world-class golf, spas, fine dining and fiestas.

Together, the Balearic Islands offer superb cruising territory and chartering one of our handpicked yachts is an ideal way to discover them. By the time you reach Palma, you’ll understand why the King of Spain rarely holidays elsewhere.
