Why a Yacht Charter in Spain?

Whether you prefer to explore the coastline or the islands, we can ensure that you’ll have a fantastic time.
Where to sail?
In Spain, you can find many great areas to sail. Whether you prefer to sail across its coastline or you are keen on exploring the Balearics or the Canaries, there are many beautiful routes to follow. You will find almost 8,000 kilometres of coastline, excellent weather (especially from March to October), more than 300 marinas, a host of mooring options and Marine Resorts, fully equipped with everything your may need.
The Balearics is probably the most famous destination in Spain. You will find great sailing conditions, with fairly light wind and many lovely anchorages. If you’re in a hurry, you can explore most of the area in two weeks; four weeks allows for a more thorough cruise. There are frequent cheap flights from all islands to most European destinations during summer and all year round from Mallorca.
The Spanish Mediterranean Coast is an easy sailing area, ideal for beginners. You will find numerous idyllic bays and beautiful cities to explore. The Spanish coastline is very diverse and offers a variety of landscapes. There are cliffs and sandy beaches, fertile farmlands, craggy mountains, olive groves and rocky coves. The Spanish Mediterranean coast can be divided into 3 charter areas: the region of Barcelona in the north, the coasts of Valencia and Alicante in the middle, and the area around Malaga and Marbella in the south.
Each of the coastal regions has its own unique character. The north-eastern part of the Spanish Mediterranean coast is the Costa Brava.
The 220 km long “Wild Coast” is steep and often rugged, with numerous picturesque bays, headlands and beaches. Many of the bays can only be reached by boat, such as: in the area of the Cap de Begur Cadaques, the peninsula with the Cap de Creus and the area between Tossa de Mar and Sant Feliu de Guixols. The Costa Dorada or “Gold Coast” runs between Cunit and Alcanar and has many long, sandy beaches. It is definitely worth visiting the Catalonian capital of Barcelona. Further south is the Costa del Azahar which includes the coastal area around Valencia. Because of the many orange groves in the region, it is named the “Orange Blossom Coast”.
The location of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic, just off the coast of Africa, offers perfect sailing conditions and weather conditions. There are only very few places in the world that offer optimum sailing conditions all year round. The Canary Islands is one such place, not just because of the pleasant temperatures and the constant winds that blow even in the winter months, but also because of the safety of this European destination both when the boat is moored in the harbour and when at sea. Added to this is the wide and varied range of facilities and services, providing sailors of all boat types with everything needed for their voyage. You can sail around the islands and visit traditional fishing towns or remote beaches and coastal areas. At the marinas near the capital cities, you will find great nightlife, restaurants and large shopping centres. There are good facilities for yachts on all the islands, but particularly on the larger ones of them.
