Arrival & check-in, Palma de Mallorca
Start your journey in the capital of the Balearic Islands, the stunning and historic Palma de Mallorca. Less than 5 miles from the airport, you will be able to step off your flight and into this stunning waterfront city in no time. Once you’ve checked in, leave behind the breathtaking coastal views (there’ll be plenty of those still to come!) and set about exploring the winding cobbled streets that sprawl out from under the impressive Santa Maria Cathedral. You’ll come across countless tapas bars, restaurants and cafes that will quickly settle you into the relaxed and fun Spanish way of life – don’t get too carried away though, you have a week of adventures ahead of you…
Possibly the best preserved marine area on any of the Spanish coastlines, Cabrera feels like your own private oasis and is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the nearby ports and fishing villages. Go hiking up to the lighthouse for some stunning views of the park, explore the historic Castillo de Cabrera or simply take this opportunity to relax in the calm Spanish waters.
Arriving in Mahon you’ll be greeted by the patchwork of terracotta coloured houses that make up the island of Menorca’s capital city. Here you’ll find an overwhelming amount of interesting things to do including a historic fort, many museums and galleries and even a gin factory! Spend a day wandering the buzzing streets before retiring in one of the many port-side bars and restaurants.
On day four you’ll sail around the island of Menorca and past the beautiful Parque Natural de s’Albufera des Grau to reach the village of Fornells. The white washed buildings that make up the port contrast beautifully with the deep blue ocean and invite you invite you in to enjoy the many cafes and shops that this town thrives off of.
Famous for it’s buzzing fiesta-style nightlife, Ciutadella is a unique and fun spot to explore. You’ll find Italian style architecture that surround the impressive Palacio Salort. With both a busy old town and stunning beaches, Ciutadella has something for everyone to enjoy during the day before meeting up to experience the renowned Spanish hospitality and nightlife.
Enjoy a longer sail to the wide natural harbour of Porto Colom on the mainland of Palma. Overflowing with incredible locally caught seafood and famous Plá I Levant wine that dates back to the Roman Empire, this stop will be a highlight of the trip for food and wine lovers!
The last stop before returning to Palma de Mallorca is the unspoilt beach of Es Carbo. Make the most of your last chance to soak up the Spanish sunshine on the white sand beach or go for a swim and snorkel in the clear blue water.
