Spain is located in southwestern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula. Its mainland is bordered to the south and east by the Mediterranean Sea except for a small land boundary with Gibraltar to the north by France, Andorra and the Bay of Biscay and to the northwest and west by the Atlantic Ocean and Portugal.
The Spanish territory also includes the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the African coast and two autonomous cities in North Africa, Ceuta and Melilla, that border Morocco.
Everything about Spain is red; except the startling blue backdrop of the Mediterranean, where the yachts moor with their shiny hulls and the silvery green leaves of the olive groves.
Favorite yacht charter locations from mainland Spain include Costa Brava, Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol and of course the Balearic Islands.
The Spain Balearics yacht charter scene has become increasingly popular and the types of yacht charter available in Mallorca, Palma, Ibiza, Formentera and Menorca are the main types of yacht charter including motor, sailing, bareboat charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, luxury yachts and the ever more familiar super yacht charter.
The summer season in July and August is the hottest and tends to have lighter winds. This is also the high season as far as yacht charter goes.
Other good times to charter your yacht is generally on either of the shoulder seasons (April-May and September-October), each side of the main summer season, as the temperatures are still comfortable and the onshore tourists have yet to arrive in their largest numbers.
The northern Catalonian city of Barcelona, Spain’s second largest, is the launching base for most yacht charters. Due to the great facilities and easy international access, Barcelona is a fantastic city in which to begin your bareboat yacht charter vacation.
From here, you can easily sail down the coast, to Costa Blanca, or across to an isolated bays of the Balearic Islands.
Enjoy the natural beauty of the Spanish coastline and the unique blend of vibrant Spanish culture. Spain is truly is one of the world best charter destinations.
