Crystal-clear waters, outstanding Mediterranean cuisine and some of the best sunsets in the world – welcome to South Ibiza and Formentera.
Embark from San Antonio and start your trip with a visit to the beautiful bay of Cala Bassa. We recommend anchoring in the bay or close to the beach, you’ll also find the equally stunning Cala Comte nearby.
Stop off at the famous Cala Bassa Beach Club. The restaurant offers an incredible gastronomic fusion menu that compliments its surroundings. Treat yourself to a delicious meal – eat like a local and indulge in a lobster paella or Ibizan king prawns followed by some speciality sangrias and ice-cold beers.
Sailing from the South-East coast of Ibiza, you will visit the fantastic beaches Cala Tarida, Cala Vadella and Cala d’Hort. Nearby, you can find the amazing island of Es Vedrà.
Stop off at the island and learn about its fascinating history – it is said that it was once the home of sirens and sea-nymphs and the birth place of the goddess Tanit, whose statue you will see all across Ibiza.
Enjoy lunch Mediterranean-style at Cala d’Hort. There are many fantastic restaurants but Es Carmen is a firm favourite amongst locals for its views over Es Vedrà as well as its delicious seafood and antipasti.
Departing from Cala d’Hort, we will arrive at Es Cubells Bay, where we highly recommend a visit to the small but famous chiringuito, ‘Ses Boques’.
The owners at Ses Boques work with the finest locally-sourced ingredients from the island. Everyday the family visit the local market for freshly caught fish.
Specialties include roasted fish in salt crust, which is cooked slowly in-house with locally-sourced salt, perfectly showcasing the full and diverse flavours of the fish. New to the menu this year is the calamari in salt crust. Buen provecho!
Next, set sail towards Formentera, where the famous Cala Jondal is located. While away the hours on this stunning beach or if you’re feeling adventurous partake in some water sports or snorkelling.
Make time for a pit stop at Ibiza’s most famous beach club, Blue Marlin for exclusive events, delicious food and exquisite drinks.
End the day with a visit to Ses Salines, a beautiful natural park, full of ecological, aesthetic, historical and cultural gems, concentrated on 3,000 hectares of land and 13,000 marine hectares.
You will also find several fantastic restaurants on this part of Ibiza from Malibu, serving up a symphony of Mediterranean sights, smells, tastes and sounds to Jockey Club, where you can relax and sample some deliciously healthy food.
It’s time to say goodbye to Ses Salines for the time being and head to Formentera, or the ‘Caribbean of the Balearics’ as it is informally known due to its sparkling blue waters and sensational white beaches.
We will anchor in the secluded and pristine Es Palmador. You will be spoiled for choice with fantastic restaurants once more, but Es Molí de Sal is a firm favourite and well worth a visit.
Situated in an old mill belonging to the old salt industry of Formentera, the restaurant has been exquisitely renovated and offers the best of Formentera cuisine, all served up in stunning surrounds. Start with Iberian ham and Andalusian gaspacho followed by paella loaded with fresh lobster, or how about the fish of the day, salt-baked to perfection? Finish up with Catalan cream or sorbet of of the day.
Spend the remainder of your day relaxing onboard or on the white sands of Formentera’s exclusive beaches.
Close to Espalmador you will discover the charming harbour of Formentera, abundant with restaurants and beautiful independent shops. As we continue to sail around the island we will visit the picture-perfect Cala Saona beach, the perfect place to enjoy the world-renowned Balearic sunset. Looking for the perfect steak? Head to Caminito, an Argentinian restaurant specialising in the highest quality meats and famous on the island of Formentera.
Departing from Cala Saona we will discover the beaches of Poniente. From here we will sail on to the other side of the island, Levante, and discover the best paella in Formentera at Can Rafalet. If you fancy something different to eat head to Tanga, which also offers spectacular views and fresh Mediterranean flavours.
On the final day we recommend heading out early to enjoy one last day of relaxation on the fantastic beaches of South Ibiza. At night we will anchor close to San Antonio to make the journey home as care-free as possible.
