An Insight into Ibiza onboard Motor Yacht Sensei this Summer

Chartering a crewed motor yacht around the Balearic Islands has always provided guests with unforgettable memories, sparked by the stunning scenery, crystal clear waters and hedonistic culture. Ibiza is widely regarded as the nightlife capital of the world, yet La Isla Blanca (The White Island) possesses more qualities than the sole ability to host an unforgettable party. Whether it is discovering your very own private bay, sitting down to some of the best seafood in the Med or relaxing with friends at a luxurious beach club, Ibiza is able to please guests of all ages, needs and expectations.

Es Xarcu Bay

One of our favourite bays is close to the southern town of Porroig, where you will find Es Xarcu restaurant. The restaurant takes pride in its ‘virgin cove’ location, and consequently makes full use of the freshest fish and seafood, which is carefully prepared and cooked in a simple and authentic manner. Prepare yourself for prawns cooked on a charcoal grill, delicious paella with seafood and simply cooked fish with traditional sides. The virgin cove has welcomed some of the most stunning super yachts in the world, including the iconic Motor Yacht A from the Blohm+Voss shipyard, ensuring that you will be in good company.


During a recent business development trip, Charter Brokers Charles and Ben carefully chose to dine at Amante Beach Club, which sits overlooking Sol D’En Serra Bay. Amante won Ibiza’s award for the best beach club in both 2012 and 2013, which does not fully do it justice, as it would be able to compete with the very best beach clubs anywhere in the world. Whether you attend the early morning yoga class followed by breakfast, anchor for lunch or dinner, the Amante experience is one that you will remember forever. Make sure to try the stunning fish stew, comprising of poached monkfish, clams and prawns in an intense, complex, yet beautifully balanced sauce.
