There are many reasons why chartering your own yacht gives you the freedom that a land-based holiday fails to do. Firstly, you have the luxury of enjoying every moment, making the most of each place you visit; spend a full day visiting the main beaches of Ibiza, head out another day to sister island, Formentera, spend another day swimming in Cala Saona, or asks your skipper to take you to ‘secret beaches’ that seem plucked from a movie set. Just a few of Ibiza’s best kept secrets are Punta de Piedra, a stunning stretch of coastline just north of San Antonio which is compared to Formentera, Cala d’en Serra which is hidden between rocks and cliffs with plenty of marine life or Es Portitxol, a tiny stretch of shoreline you need to climb down through a challenging, rocky path.
A weekly boat charter will allow you take part in a host of fun activities. If you are travelling with your children, they will be pleased to know that within a few days, they will probably be quite confident at waterskiing or wakeboarding. These sports can seem like a breeze when we see experts performing amazing feats, yet they require lots of balance and you have to be prepared for many dips in the sea before you are confidently standing on your skis or board.
Having more than just one day out at sea allows you enjoy everything on offer without feeling rushed… You may choose to spend a whole morning paddle surfing enjoying a fantastic, chef-prepared lunch afterwards on deck. Those who frequently charter yachts in Ibiza often say that they look forward to nothing more than just lying on an elegant teak deck, sipping on a glass of Champagne while their yacht or motorboat rips through the waves.
Most charter guests prefer to sit back and let the hostess or chef take care of the food and drink requirements. This is ideal on a larger boats where the fully equipped kitchen and separate crew quarters allow everyone the space and privacy you require, with all your catering on hand. It is a bit like being in a grand luxe hotel, with a new location each day. Think of a week’s boat charter in Ibiza as the ultimate personalised holiday.
