Cartagena, the home of the Spanish Navy. Seated on the South Easterly tip of Spain, you’ll feel you’ve stepped back in time as the city is so filled with history. The Roman Theatre is beyond impressive, there are castles, museums, palaces galore to explore and we haven’t even touched on the places to eat!
For this trip we start by traveling up the southern easterly corner of Spain leaving Cartagena behind for Alicante. The capital of Spain’s Costa Blanca, as the name suggests, this region is brimming with endless white sandy beaches. Filled with classic Spanish colonial architecture, Alicante offers the perfect balance of old and new, from exploring the cobbled streets of the old town to sipping Pina Coladas in coolest beach bars on the sea front.
We’ll enjoy a day sailing up the eastern side of Spain to the oldest fishing town on the Costa Blanca. Moraira is a picturesque town with a stunning coastline, a mixture of sandy beaches and rocky outcrops. The area is also home to 1,000 hectares of vineyards.
We leave this quaint town for the open sea as we cross the Mediterranean for the Balearic island of Formentera. The smallest of this group of islands and often overlooked, a hidden gem of the med. It has become favourite for many for its chilled out hippy vibes.
Ibiza, perhaps the most iconic of all the islands in the med! We’re swapping out the chilled vibes of Formentera for the ultimate party island! Celebrating our penultimate night on this epic trip, we’ll feast on Ibiza’s delicious delicacies before hitting the town.
There’s nothing like a little sea air to awaken the senses as sail the magnificent med to our final stop of the trip. Take in the aquamarine waters, the incredible variety of landscapes, the beauty of the secret bays as we sail into Mallorca for our final stop.
Palma is a charming city, walk through the winding cobbled streets, take in the views from the Cathedral over the rooftops of the old town. There are some of the best beach bars in the med just a stones throw from Palma. So soak up the Spanish culture, cuisine and lifestyle before heading back home.
