Balearics on a sailing yacht: Minorca’s most beautiful coves
One of the advantages of the sailing yacht is mooring at roadstead: discover a lovely little bay off the beaten path, surrounded by the vegetation and enjoy moments of absolute relaxation. Minorca boasts so many fantastic coves that you’ll just have to pick one, but we recommend to plan a stop at Cavalleria: a 450 meter long beach of virgin red sand enclosed by rocks caressed by jade-green waters.
Cala Turqueta is another must-visit getaway if you’re looking for peace and quiet: this tiny beach of 110 meters is surrounded by maritime pines and fragrant Mediterranean vegetation with turquoise waters that make the site look like exotic and (more faraway) paradises.
Fans of snorkelling should head for Cala Morell, where a small beach leads to waters dotted with underwater caves that can be explored on a dive or by simply swimming along the coastline with a mask and flippers.

Balearics on a sailing yacht: Ibiza and the sunset at Dragon Islands
It is time to dive into the coolest nightlife at one of Ibiza’s most exclusive clubs. Like Mykonos, this party island is packed with clubs that stay busy until the wee hours of the morning with a crowd that enjoys the music as much as excesses. But before leaving we recommend experiencing an absolutely unique spectacle: sail to Cala Hort, a tiny beach of 200 meter, and enjoy the charming view of the three “Dragon islands” of Es Vedrà, Es Vedranell e Es (Sa) Galera. If you are a fan of twilight atmospheres you will love this picturesque and mysterious location that, facing Ibiza’s western side, takes on a magical light at sunset
