Top things to do in Spain
Cuevas del Drach, Mallorca
Mallorca has much to offer but its underground cave system and lake are a popular attraction and worth a visit during your boat charter in Spain. See stalactites and stalagmites lit up and even hear a classical music performance before ending your visit with a boat trip.
Ibiza’s blazing sunsets
The White Isle isn’t just a party scene, the scenery is simply beautiful. Head to landmark Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell, rocky islands in the Ponent Nature Reserve, or check out the sunset from Es Caló d’es Moro, near the famous Café del Mar.
The islands of Menorca and Formentera
Great for families, Menorca offers just as many beaches as Mallorca and fewer crowds. One not to miss is Cala Turqueta beach with waters that could be in the Caribbean. Climb the Roman path to see the best view of the smallest Balearic island, Formentera.
