While wandering the streets is an excellent way to experience a new destination, on an island, you can also go out on the water.
On Ibiza, one of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, we had the opportunity to charter a boat in Santa Eulalia. From the marina in Santa Eulalia, we boarded a skippered yacht from Náutica Santa Eulalia, a local charter company.
After admiring the gorgeous yachts during our slow cruise out of the harbour, we sped through the sapphire-coloured sea, towards hidden coves, historic sites, and sandy beaches.
Pou des Lleo
Horseshoe-shaped, Pou des Lleo, was our first stop. This tranquil beach, surrounded by colourful cliffs, has inviting turquoise waters and excellent views of the island of Tagamago.
Torre d’en Valls
Towering Torre d’en Valls, one of the island’s best-preserved defence towers, is even more imposing when viewed from the sea. This 17th-century tower was built to protect the island against pirate attacks.
The most northern resort area on the island of Ibiza, Portinatx is a collection of three spectacular beaches – S’Arenal Petit, S’Arenal Gran, and Platja Es Port. The family-friendly beaches, clear water, and scenic coastline make Portinatx a popular destination.
When arriving by sea from Santa Eulalia, Portinatx’s majestic black and white striped lighthouse known as ‘Far del Moscarter’, looms on the horizon. This fully automated lighthouse is reported to be the tallest in the Balearic Islands.
Seeing the coastline of Ibiza, onboard a skippered boat from Náutica Santa Eulalia allowed us to experience the island from a different perspective, providing a richer vacation experience, and lasting memories
