Planning a Chic Superyacht Adventure to the Balearic Islands

The balmy Balearics are never short of sunshine, with the golden orb circling the sky for over three hundred days of the year. Waters as blue as a fair maiden’s eyes, white washed cliffs, and endless olive groves, it’s no wonder that everyone seems to be drawn to the Spanish islands. Superyachts seem to make the most of this unique collection by swinging by Ibiza for late night parties and bohemian bliss, hitting the white sands of Formentera for impeccable beach beauty and heading to the shores of Mallorca and Menorca for peace and respite on the golden dawn cliffs.

MY Starfire can show you the jewels of the Balearics, awash with a hint of mystery, lashings of warmth and every inch of beauty you could ever desire.

Ibiza

Superyachts sparkle in the chic marina, white linen glows in every boutique window and the all-night revelers straggle across the beaches in the dawn. Ibiza is one of the most infamous destinations in the whole of the Balearics and is the perfect place for those who adore taking a walk on the wild side. By day, you can spend the long glistening hours draped across the sun loungers at the high-class club of Nikki Beach or wander the cobbled streets seeking designer apparel.

When the moon rises like a slip of silk in the velvet sky this is when the island blooms like a lotus and the famous nightclubs throw open their doors. Yet away from the madding crowds you can find hippies dancing and beating drums on the white sands and sophisticated socialites sipping cocktails in the hottest bars. Returning from a night of hedonism to the Zen-like calm of MY Starfire, indulging in an afternoon massage and snoozing on the sundeck is enough to reset the clock and soothe your senses.

Formentera

The little sister of her loud and overzealous counterpart of Ibiza, Formentera is a whisper in the sea winds and for those who love the idea of getting away from the bustle; this could very well just be paradise. There is no airport on the pint-sized island making it an absolute haven for superyachts seeking a little privacy and authentic charm. Aquamarine waters tempt you to dive straight in on the deck as soon as the morning rustles her feathers.

Locals ride bicycles and strip down to the bare essentials on the beach to soak up the heat. This is the place where you can truly immerse yourself in the natural solitude by diving from cliff tops into ethereal waters, hiking the craggy coastline and diving down to discover the seaweed fields that make the waters between Formentera and Ibiza a UNESCO world heritage site. After a day relaxing, you can finish with a cocktail in hand and a good movie in the open-air cinema on board MY Starfire.

Mallorca

The star of the show, Mallorca truly is an endless ray of sunshine that seems to always be humming a happy little tune when it comes to visiting the Balearics. Beautiful beaches remain etched along the coast, caves run deep and country farmhouses scatter the lands in the utmost alluring fashion. In the capital of Palma, you find a constant buzz, a place where Mediterranean flavors feature on every menu, shops brim with local crafts and the young and the restless seek a lively time beneath the stars.

For superyachts, there is nothing better than circling the island seeking out the best preciously white beaches fringed by the deepest blue. Walk in the footsteps of Anais Nin and Grace Kelly as you flit through the backstreets of charming Deià and settle down on the sundeck of MY Starfire to witness a dazzling sunset with a tipple in hand.

Menorca

Gliding into the calm mirrored waters around Menorca and you will suddenly notice the peaceful sounds of nature flooding back to the landscape. The quieter of the Balearic Islands, Menorca is all about low-key living, incredible bleached beaches and peachy sunsets that tempt even the most hardcore of bedheads to rouse from the pillow.

History buffs will adore walking around the Bronze Age sites, bird lovers will wade through the mysterious wetlands and those who adore nothing more than grabbing a table on the harbor front and watching the boats bob will truly be in their element. Spend long summer day’s horseback riding through the hills and snorkeling in the waters, reading long and lucid books onboard MY Starfire and mopping up freshly made aioli with home baked bread as the fireflies dance in the twilight.
