Most people who rent a yacht in Ibiza, do so on a weekly basis, but there are a few sailboats that are also available for day charter. There is really no better way to explore the island than to hug the coastline, sit back and watch as the next cove comes into sight. For many who love sailing it’s the journey, not the destination. It’s listening to the sound of the waves breaking on the bow; the gentle rocking of boat as she surges forward, the constant scanning the ocean in the hopes of sometimes being rewarded with a sighting of a school of dolphins off the coast of Ibiza; sunbathing on the deck and getting away from it all.

To help you find the perfect holiday sailing boat rental in Ibiza, you can basically filter by length, guests and price. The number of people that can go on a sailboat is related to the boat license and is shown on each boat below. This differs for day charter and sleep aboard. Most sailboats are chartered by the week and run from Saturday to Saturday. There are some available for day charter. In Ibiza there is a seasonal pricing, so the € price symbol indicates the price compared to other sailboats only.


There’s one word that sums up why yacht rentals in Ibiza are so popular… Freedom: the ability to go where you want, when you want, without any consideration of time or concern over fuel.


Chartering a sailboat was an amazing way to spend our holiday in Ibiza. Days on-broad were spent discovering new places and exploring the coves and bays that to us felt untouched.

We have a whole new perspective of Ibiza and Formentera. When you see the islands from the sea, it offers up a distinctively unique perception of how things really are.

Most sail boat rentals in Ibiza include a tender with an outboard engine which is ideal for nipping ashore to investigate a beach only accessible by boat. It can also be used for navigating in and out of the caves in Formentera. Sometimes a paddle board is included and other sea toys can also be easily added.

Generally it will take approximately 90-120 minutes from Ibiza to northern Formentera or less if you are departing from Salinas. Many sailing week-long charters start at the marina in San Antonio, from which the voyage to Formentera can take approximately 3-4 hours, during which you will sail passed the magnetic island of Es Vedra and spots including the beach club Blue Marlin in Cala Jondal.

You can choose to cruise around the islands of Ibiza and Formentera soaking up the Spanish sun, lunch in the many popular beach restaurants or catch the wind and set sail to the gorgeous island of Tagomago just off the north eastern shore of Ibiza, where there is great snorkelling.

Sailing boats are much more cost effective on fuel than motorboats, using less than €15 per hour in most cases when the engine is running. There are boats with up to 5 cabins and a convertible salon. You can usually sleep up to 12 people including crew on a standard 15m sailboat, dependent on the maritime license. We have some sailboats that are available without crew or bareboat, subject to your sailing license and a deposit on your credit card. Sailboats get booked earlier as they offer better value than other boats available in Ibiza. Virtually all sailing yachts are available for week-long bookings that run from Saturday to Saturday. The charter season for sailing yachts is typically much longer that motorised charter boats and usually starts as early as April and runs until the end of October. Please think about this before you book your flights.
