Yacht charter Spain

Sailing around the Canary Islands, Balearic Islands or the Spanish mainland

Spain offers with its endless coastlines and island groups like the Balearic Islands and Canary Islands large and scenically diverse sailing areas. Depending on the area, a yacht charter in Spain is suitable for both sailing beginners and professionals - surrounded by a well-developed infrastructure, fantastic beaches and varied coastal regions. And these are only a few hours away by plane.

The Balearic Islands - for some party, for others natural coasts

The Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands are well known and popular with vacationers. The Balearic Islands with Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera offer good sailing conditions all year round and around the four large main islands there are more than 100 other small islands. Party sailors head for Ibiza and the southwest of Mallorca with Palma and S'Arenal. Relaxation and nature seeking sailors can discover a completely different natural side of the island in calm weather conditions on the north coast of Mallorca: a beautiful rocky coast with green slopes without hotels and tourists. Portocolom is also a base on Mallorca that is very popular with sailors who want to enjoy a more relaxed sailing tour with views of the beautiful Cala coast all the way to the Cabrera archipelago with its coves and its beautiful grottos. Menorca and Formentera are also still away from the main tourism and large parts of the islands are protected and have been largely preserved from tourist construction sins. On Menorca you can start your trip from the capital Mahón.

Sailing on the Canary Islands all year round

Experienced sailors can also go sailing in Europe in winter. The Canary Islands are easy to reach from German airports in just a few hours by plane and are blessed with pleasant temperatures all year round due to their proximity to the African continent. The steady northeast trade winds provide good sailing conditions. Mostly the weather conditions south of the islands on the downwind side are drier and warmer than on the northern coasts. Lanzarote impresses with its still moon-like volcanic landscape, cultural sights like the special architecture of César Manrique and a culinary visit to the wine region La Geria, where even non-wine drinkers can enjoy typical island dishes in the small bodegas. On Gran Canaria, impressive dune landscapes stretch along the beach, and hiking fans will also enjoy the mountains, gorges, volcanic craters and forests. On Tenerife, too, you can climb the formative Teide caldera, follow in the footsteps of the indigenous people, the Guanches, and surfers will find popular spots here. The island is also a good port of departure to the other Canary Islands of La Palma, La Gomera or El Hierro.

The Spanish Northwest Coast: Sporty Sailing on the Atlantic and Relaxing in the Rías Baixas

But not only the south offers beautiful bays and vacation feeling, in the north the coast and the islands of Galicia invite you from our starting port Vigo. Here, impressive cliffs alternate with beach bays and the typical Rías Baixas, fjord-like rivers where you can take a breather from the force of the Atlantic. It is worth going into the rías to explore the small groups of islands that belong to a natural park and the charming historic towns. If you don't want a hot summer like the Mediterranean on your cruise, you'll find milder temperatures around 25 degrees here in northwestern Spain. Galicia is also a rainier region and so there are extensive forested areas that go right up to the shores, combined with a mountainous landscape ideal for hiking, kayaking and other outdoor activities, as well as all wind-water sports. Between the rugged rocky coastline are many long sandy beaches, including one of the most beautiful beaches in the world on an island off Vigo: here on Playa de Rodas, despite its northern location, you get a South Sea feeling, without the crowds of the Mediterranean. The North Atlantic offers sporty conditions for blue water sailing for experienced crews.

Spain's Mediterranean coast - beach vacations, family cruises, culture and diving

At the border to France Spain starts right away with its wild coast, the Costa Brava in Catalonia. Leaving the big vacation and party resorts like Lloret de Mar on the port side, rocky and cliffy coasts give way to bays, some of which can only be reached by boat. For sailors, the coast offers a nice variety of nature and culture, because especially in the northern part are still the largest undeveloped areas on the Spanish Mediterranean coast. Natural parks like at Cap de Creus or the Medas Islands reveal an intact underwater world, perfect for diving. Hiking along the coast allows you to discover the fauna and flora of the Pyrenean foothills. The Costa Brava is also home to Salvador Dalí, whose house and museum are as eccentric as the person himself. Starting points such as Roses, L'Estartit and Palamos are also worth a visit in their own right. In summer, the calmer weather makes the area suitable for less experienced sailors. However, the Tramontana can always start suddenly from the northwest, but in summer this is less often the case. If you want to be on the safe side, look for your spot further to the southwest, where the mountains protect the coast.

The Costa Brava is followed by the Costa Daurada in Catalonia with long sandy beaches and the metropolis of Barcelona. Therefore, the area is well suited for a combination of beach vacation and city trip. Families with smaller children will find shallow beaches and a good infrastructure. The cultural and recreational offerings range from historic cities like Tarragona, a variety of water sports in Sitges to star cuisine in Cambrils and everything you could wish for in Barcelona. You can start directly from Barcelona or more quietly from the smaller towns of Sitges and Cambrils a little to the south. South of Barcelona and especially south of the Ebro Delta the wind conditions become calmer, which makes the areas here attractive for less experienced sailors as well as families.

On the Costa del Azahar south of Valencia the "coast of orange trees" goes along citrus plantations and rocky coast with sandy beaches in the bays. Opportunities for sunbathing, swimming and various water sports are also plentiful here. In the sailing season, weaker winds due to the protection of the mountains make the area interesting also for sailing beginners and families. The two large cities of Valencia and Castellón de la Plana offer a wide range of cultural activities and nightlife. Popular destinations are the town of Benicássim and the fortress island of Peñiscola from the time of the Knights Templar. Between these tourist centers there are always small towns and natural parks, such as those of Albufera or Serra d'Irta and the Ebro delta. If you want to combine the mainland and the Balearic Islands, you will find the right starting port in our base in Denia, because the city is the closest to the islands of Ibiza and Formentera from the mainland.

From our bases in Denia near Valencia and San Javier you start directly between two very popular Spanish vacation destinations. To the south stretches the Costa Blanca with beautiful beaches and cities like Alicante or Elche. This part of the coast is of course very popular in summer, but especially sailing beginners and families benefit here from the calmer and navigationally easy conditions and can create a nice vacation trip. Variety is offered by the city of Alicante with its beautiful old town and castle as well as the city of Denia, a wide range of water sports in the large lagoon Mar Menor, historical sites on the Costa Cálida and plenty of sandy beaches. If you have more time you can sail on to Andalusia. To the north lies the coast of the orange blossom, the Costa del Azahar, also with beautiful beaches and small coastal towns. Also highly recommended is a city trip to Barcelona, which you can combine with a sailing trip. You can also depart from here.
