The combination of the breath-taking Tavolara, chic Porto Cervo, the beautiful Maddalena and iconic Bonifacio are unbeatable. Sardinia is discreet and exclusive, the perfect yacht charter destination. I’d combine the quiet anchorages around Porto Pollo with beautiful Port towns like Porto Rotondo and Bonifacio. I’d go for traditional Italian coffee and breakfast at the Cafe du Port (Porto Cervo), then cruise into the Maddalena, swim at Caprera (Cala Coticcio), seafood lunch at La Scogliera (Isola Maddalena north, close to Cala Spalmatore) and then back to Phi Beach Club (Porto Cervo) for sunset. I would stay there, but you could also then go for dinner at Just Cavalli Porto Cervo and then onto Billionaire Club!
Chosen Yacht: PORTHOS SANS ABRI – with a yacht owner that has picked the best crew from his fleet of yachts, you are in excellent hands with Captain Carlo. He knows the area inside out, so whether you’re looking to relax, water sports or party, he will take you to the best spots. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

The craziness of Ibiza is a lot of fun and there is an abundance of great beach clubs – Blue Marlin, Juan y Andrea, Lio for the night, then head over to Formentera for a change of scenery. I would be travelling with my family, so would want to visit Mallorca for a quieter time in beautiful bays and the national park Dragonera. The stunning natural beauty of this area is breathtaking and spots are best accessed on a boat, with secluded bays offering us some downtime from the buzzing vibes of Ibiza!
Chosen Yacht: QUASAR – she has the best crew who have been together since last summer; their deckhand loves the water toys, there’s a fabulous chef that makes the best fresh tuna tacos and Captain Ian knows all the more remote spots in Ibiza, not just the obvious places. The yacht is in great condition and has lots of exterior space to kick back and relax as you soak up the sun. Contact: email@example.com

Having spent just a short weekend in Greece last month, I am super keen to go back again. Greek people are all so friendly and welcoming, the food is amazing – particularly the baklava and souvlaki – and the weather is always hot hot hot! In particular, I want to go sightseeing in Athens and visit some of the islands – some more rural like Milos, and some more for partying like Mykonos, as Greece is so versatile!
Chosen Yacht: BARENTS SEA – Barent’s sea has had a full refit and is so modern, gorgeous and has the most amazing stewardess and chef, who will go above and beyond to ensure an exceptional charter. Her interior is stunning, with a true feel of a luxury floating hotel at your own disposal! Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

Destination: French Riviera
Having moved to the Cannes office for the summer season, I’ve adored being in the South of France – it’s perfect for relaxing on the beach and the French Riviera has all the beach clubs, bars and incredible restaurants you could ask for, so no need to go elsewhere! I would do a Day Charter from Cannes to St Tropez or Monaco during my time off, as I think exploring the coast by yacht is unrivalled. I’d spend the day cruising with the music going and drinks flowing with friends, before having lunch at one of the glamorous Beach Clubs; then swim and use the water toys on board before returning back to Cannes for an evening out at Baôli, our favourite club.
Chosen Yacht: REHAB – she is ideal for cruising along the hotspots of the French Riviera and has plenty of deck space for tanning and chilling with friends. Inside there’s a great seating area, too, for sipping champagne whilst on the water!

The dazzling destinations included this week are Ibiza, the renowned party town with underrated beauty, as well as the BVI, where we recommend an intimate and picturesque setting for a dinner by the ocean. New to the yachting industry is a diamond and yacht collaboration, where the two services compliment each other to provide a unique service across yachting destinations.
Finally! The yachting industry has long been awaiting the new marina to be opened in Port Ibiza Town, and it has now officially opened for business. This marina is set to have a huge impact on both Ibiza’s yachting market as well as the Western Mediterranean yachting industry as a whole.
This weeks luxury blog includes three infamous charter destinations. First off, the BVI! With the Romasco-Group readily available to make your charter unrivalled in terms of luxury, exclusivity and style. Also, in Croatia and Ibiza, among many other destinations, hotels are starting to build yacht marinas on the doorstep to blur the lines between water and land trips.
With the Spanish charter licensing rules being stricter than elsewhere in the Med, there are fewer yachts available in the sought after Balearics, but that is not to say they are any less impressive than the larger selection elsewhere in the Med. Boatbookings has recently had the pleasure of having lunch on board the extraordinary TAKARA, a Sanlorenzo 38m launched in 2016.
If it’s good enough for Kate Moss…it’s good enough for us! Formentera is often overshadowed by Ibiza, the sparkling and glitzy party island. However, for the ultimate Spanish experience Formentera is well worth a visit due to the unsung beaches and undiscovered restaurants, eat and sunbathe to your hearts content!
When it comes to summer getaways, the Mediterranean is unrivalled. Long sunny days composed of sailing from one spectacular town to another, historic villages, tranquil bays for swimming and mouth watering food, it really does not get any better. If you’re seeking inspiration of where you should go this summer, why not try 5 of our top summer hotspots!
With more and more yachts becoming legal to charter in Spain, start planning your yacht charter Ibiza for a memorable and vibrant summer.
Ibiza old town is stunningly beautiful, having been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO; it is rich in historic and cultural artefacts, with an impressive castle and monastery, as well as several museums. This enclosed town is often holiday maker’s highlight and for good reason; its maze of cobbled streets is perfect for a day exploring.
Atzaro Spa is an open-air Spa offering an array of health and well-being treatments; the spa is in the heart of natural surroundings and is perfect to take a break from the fast pace of Ibiza and its party scene. The spa also includes a fitness area where guests can partake in yoga, meditation and a variety of classes.
For a taste of something different, why not dock right next to the very famous Lio, the glamourous restaurant cabaret on the island. Lio is a new concept of restaurant cabaret serving Japanese cuisine in a generous setting. It’s sure to be an evening full of glitzy entertainment and great food!
