The Balearic - a yacht charter paradise
The Balearic Islands in the western Mediterranean are a preferred holiday destination. On Majorca, the largest island of the Balearic Islands, numerous marinas are available to charter a yacht. With a yacht charter in Mallorca you can find many wonderful destinations along the diverse coast line. Especially the mountainous west coast has spectacular unspoiled anchorages. Beside Mallorca you can also choose from various harbors of the islands Ibiza and Menorca to start your sailing adventure in the Balearic Islands.

It is very easy to get to one of the charter bases of the Balearic Islands. Almost all German airports offer frequent daily services towards the Balearic Islands. From your destination airports in Mallorca, Menorca or Ibiza a short transfer to the marinas of your charter base allows to start your trip on the same day of arrival.
Westwind is the prevailing wind direction in the Balearics and this ensures stable and mild climate. Much more unpleasant is the Mistral, a northern and cold fall wind. These wind conditions which occur mostly on the northern coasts are only fun for experienced crews. At the south coast, the impact of the Mistral is not as strong and is recommended for less experienced sailors. Beginners should therefore charter a yacht in Mallorca and start from marinas in Palma de Mallorca and El Arenal.
