WHAT IT’S LIKE TO CHARTER A BOAT IN SANTA EULALIA, IBIZA

While wandering the streets is an excellent way to experience a new destination, on an island, you can also go out on the water. On Ibiza, one of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, we had the opportunity to charter a boat in Santa Eulalia. From the marina in Santa Eulalia, we boarded a skippered yacht from Nautica Santa Eulalia, a local charter company. After admiring the gorgeous yachts during our slow cruise out of the harbour, we sped through the sapphire-coloured sea, towards hidden coves, historic sites, and sandy beaches.Towering Torre d'en Valls, one of the island's best-preserved defence towers, is even more imposing when viewed from the sea. This 17th-century tower was built to protect the island against pirate attacks.When arriving by sea from Santa Eulalia, Portinatx's majestic black and white striped lighthouse known as 'Far del Moscarter', looms on the horizon. This fully automated lighthouse is reported to be the tallest in the Balearic Islands. Seeing the coastline of Ibiza, onboard a skippered boat from Nautica Santa Eulalia allowed us to experience the island from a different perspective, providing a richer vacation experience, and lasting memories.
