Are you thinking about a summer vacation filled with passion and excitement? Then Spain is the right choice for you. The swirling skirts of Flamenco dancers, the flash of the Matador’s cloak, the refreshing sangria, tapas and the rich and flaming personalities of the Spanish – every single aspect of this breathtaking country is symbolised by passion. Combined with the blue Mediterranean sea and the silvery green leaves of the olive groves, Spain is the perfect destination to relax and unwind, and at the same time experience the excitement and the energy while cruising around on your preferred luxury motor yacht or sailing yacht.
Most of the charter holidays begin in Barcelona, the northern Catalonian city and one of the most important yachting destinations in this country. Barcelona has a large port as well as marina, with many large luxury motor yachts and sailing yachts to admire. From here you can go and exlore this important Mediterranean city, filled with important historical marvels, including priceless art pieces and masterpieces by such popular artists as Picasso, Miro, Gaudi and Dali.
As well as boasting important historical landmarks, Barcelona is also well known for its beautiful pristine beaches with the most popular ones located on the La Costa Brava with its avant-garde and contemporary appeal.
Other popular destination for guests travelling aboard luxury charter yachts include la Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol and of course the Balearic Islands – one of the most popular charter destinations in the Western Mediterranean. The Baleares or Balearics is preferred for its sunny days, azure waters, rugged landscape as well as its history. Charter a yacht to cruise the Balearics and you will get the chance to experience the famous Spanish nightlife with its tapas bars, nightclubs and port-side cafes.
Your next Spanish yacht charter could also include the popular Mallorca – an excellent place to fly into and meet your luxury superyacht moored in a large harbour. Mallorca’s capital city, Palma, is characteristic with its elegant eastern theme combined with impressive western treatments. For those planning on engaging in some serious shopping in Palma de Mallorca, they should check-out the boutiques and shops situated along the main streets in the old part of the city as well as the El Corte Ingles.
