On a Sant Antoni de Portmany yacht charter with Borrow a Boat you can explore much of Ibiza and the Balearic Islands depending on how long you charter for. Whatever you want from an Ibiza boat rental, from its beautiful beaches to its fantastic culture, a Sant Antoni de Portmany sailing holiday is going to be an experience you never forget

When San Antonio is mentioned people will often know of the Cafe del Mar nightspot with its great view of the sunsetand world class DJs easing you into a 'banging' night. It is world famous for very good reason and has aged well since the Second Summer of Love heralded the arrival of house, dance and techno music all those decades ago!

For those who don't want to see the dawn with ringing ears and head pounding at least as hard as the bass was the night before, Sant Antoni de Portmany has plenty to offer too. The turquoise waters off the sandy beach is inviting to all, especially in the heat of summer.

The city, the second largest on Ibiza, has been inhabited continuously for around 600 years since the church in Sant Antoni's name was built high on the hillside. Before the Christian King reconquested the island, the Arabs lived there (giving it the name Portmany) and since, forts and churches have been built as the Spanish empire has matured.

As well as the main beach, you can escape through the pine forests to find a secluded cove on foot or by sea perhaps on a speedboat day charter with Borrow a Boat. There are a variety of water toys to rent both in the marina and off the beach too with water sports an important part of tourism here. All these put together make for an idyllic place to start your sailing holiday. So what about Ibiza, Formentera and the rest of the Balearic Islands? Read on to find out more!

So, where do you want to go on your Ibiza boat rental?

On an Ibiza boat hire there is a lot to take in, both on the island itself and further afield within the Balearic Islands.

For those who enjoy partying, Ibiza Town is one of those places where being different is to be normal and it is one of the top party towns in the world

As to the rest of the island? Santa Eulalia is a town that is more family oriented with its quieter, relaxed vibe. Those on an Ibiza yacht charter for whom Carl Cox and Fatboy Slim are dimly remembered names will do well to charter a yacht from Santa Eulalia Marina where you won't hear the local clubs through the night. It is a family resort with some great beaches and things to do.

Es Cana is another laid back, more family oriented resort - though with a more authentic Ibizan feel as it has a very alternative culture. The beaches are good, the atmosphere relaxed and the evenings quieter. You'll find the beaches every bit as good as the younger-crowd towns on the island too.

Did we say beautiful beaches? Many say Ibiza has the best in the Balearics. There are so many you could spend several weeks on different beaches (some only accessible by sea) and still do a new one every day...

Near to Ibiza is the relatively tiny Formentera, a sandy island that has even better beaches than Ibiza itself. It lacks much in the way of culture but is certainly a desert island worth a visit.

Mallorca is the biggest island in the Balearics and if you can get off the south coast around Palma you'll soon see that there is far more to the island. Hiking is an increasingly popular reason for visiting the island with its taxing hills and flora and fauna that you'll find hardly anywhere else in the world. There are villages and towns that aren't on the tourist trail - those you do find will often give you a taste of the 'real Balearics'.

The easternmost island of Menorca has a bit of a bad rap as a tourist destination too. Like Majorca these resorts can be avoided too. Visit Cieutadella port and the much larger capital Mahon that boasts the deepest harbour on the Mediterranean.

Suggested Sailing Routes From Sant Antoni de Portmany

On your bareboat or crewed Sant Antoni de Portmany yacht charter you can explore Ibiza, Mallorca and Menorca on your El Arenal yacht charter. Let's look at a sample charter itinerary of an Ibiza yacht charter.

7 days - San Antonio, Mallorca and Formentera: For your first day's sail, head south and then east to Es Pujols on the nearby Balearic island of Formentera. Stop on the island of Es Vedra for lunch - an uninhabited island with Phoenician relics. The next day you will skip Ibiza Town and instead make port in Es Cana, a traditional hippy type town on the east coast. Your third night will be in the relaxed seaside town of Cala Figuera on the east coast of Mallorca. Palma for the next evening will be a totally different experience with its cosmopolitan buzz. A shorter sail to Puerto Andratx on the SW corner of Mallorca the next day and then south to Ibiza and drop anchor at Platja de Cala Xarraca for the evening with its mud baths and sheltered beach. Back to San Antonio for handover.

Best Times To Hire A Yacht In Sant Antoni de Portmany

The sailing season in the Balearic Islands is best from May to October. The major party towns heat up to full frenzy in June to August, and so do the prices. It is very much down to what you want from a sailing holiday in the islands - if partying all night is on the cards, the top DJs will hit the region in that time and you will have quite a memorable time. If the quiet life is what you seek, then do try to get out during term time - the sea is still warm in September and October, though the infamous Tramontana starts to be more frequent at this time of year, as it eases off in early May.

Sailing Weather In Sant Antoni de Portmany

Ibiza and Formentera are affected by SE breezes most of the year that do not really go above 15 knots. As such this makes for near perfect sailing conditions. You will see more precipitation towards the beginning and end of the sailingseason (May and October) but the temperatures rarely stray below 15-17 degrees during those times. In the height of summer (July/August) it isn't as hot as mainland Spain, though you will see the odd few days in the 30+ C range. For Northern Europeans and those from other cooler climes this makes for fantastic sailing!

What happens if my Yacht breaks down?

If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16 or ring the coast guard on your phone if you have reception. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to or are on a mooring you will be able to phone a help line number given by the boat charter company.

What should I think of before I hire a Yacht or Boat in Sant Antoni de Portmany?

You should consider do you have the experience to handle the yacht charter or boat hire before you book and where do you want to go along with what the weather will be like. Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing if it looks like the weather can be cool as well as warm and remember at sea it can be cool on most evenings.

What Qualifications Do I need to hire a boat or yacht?

If you want to sail without a skipper then you will need relevant qualifications like RYA Day Skipper/International Certificate of Competence (ICC)/ASA 104 Bareboat certificate or the US Sailing Certificate. For small 'day boats' or if you choose to have a skippered on board your yacht charter you typically don't require licences.
