No. 3 Menorca
Another jewel of the Balearics is the island of Menorca!

Menorca is also famous for its ‘snipe’
regattas, a traditional light sailing boat for 2 people. As the evening approaches, admire the spectacular sunset at Cala Mitjana before heading back to your boat and enjoy a night of being gently rocked by the waves.

No. 4 Ibiza
Set sail for the popular island of Ibiza ! Renowned for its party antics, Ibiza is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a night out – it is home to the largest night club in the world, Privilege Ibiza.
But the island is also home to many beautiful peaceful corners, such as the
Cala Comte beach, the fortress town of Ibiza itself and the breathtaking views of the sunset from Es Vedra. Our favourite spot is the spectacular cove at Cala Salada, to the north of the island, where you will find a perfect sandy beach, sparkling turquoise waters and plenty of delicious restaurants and bars to spend the evening.

No. 5 Formentera
Formentera is the smallest island of the Balearics and is also the most
undiscovered by tourists. It is situated to the south of Ibiza and together
they form the Pityuses islands. Formentura is a haven of peace far from the livelier Ibiza. During your cruise around the island, make sure to enjoy the views from Cap de Barbaria, the deserted beaches of Ses Illetes and Llevant and the tranquility of the Ses Salines nature reserve, the perfect place for a picnic on the beach!
