The Spanish Balearic islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Forentera provide a wonderful all year round sailing destination and one of the most accessible cruising areas in the Mediterranean with regular flights from most UK departure airports.
This popular destination offers favourable sailing winds and a choice of both sheltered and more challenging cruising areas. The spectacular scenery of pine-topped cliffs, white sandy beaches and picture postcard harbours each with numerous shops and restaurants provide an excellent sailing holiday experience.
