One of the most popular destinations in the western Mediterranean, the Balearics are the perfect charter destination with a choice of unspoiled anchorages and coves, lush landscapes and clear turquoise seas with white sand beaches.

Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera are the largest islands in the archipelago. As well as enjoying the fantastic weather, sailing and natural beauty, these islands also give you the chance to immerse yourself in the rich Catalan culture, historic cities and discover amazing food, from local beach shacks to Michelin-starred restaurants. There is usually at least one fiesta going on somewhere in the Balearics every month. They offer a great opportunity to immerse yourself in local colour, culture and cuisine.

Palma de Mallorca

The capital of the Balearic Islands, Palma de Mallorca, is the largest city on the island with nearly half a million inhabitants, with more than half of the population living in the city. Dating back to the 13th Century, when the Christians took control from the Moors, the city’s honey-coloured stone rises over the Bay of Palma. It is rich in history with Roman and Talayot sites around the city. Its winding medieval streets are lined with bars and restaurants, art galleries and craft shops.

The bay is dominated by the impressive Gothic Basilica-Cathedral of Santa Maria de Mallorca. The Oyster Palma service team is based here and many owners bring their boats here to prepare for the Oyster World Rally. It is also the place where many people come to join their Oyster charter.

It is easy to fill your time strolling through the honey-stoned streets of the old town, stopping for a cold beer, sherry and tapas, as well as sampling the delicious local cuisine. Visit the cathedral to see the altar canopy designed by Antoni Gaudí (who also designed the Barcelona cathedral). If you want to spend some time exploring inland you can cycle up the wooded hills over the city to visit Bellver Castle, one of a handful of distinctive circular castles in Europe. Another highlight is Almudaina, once a Moorish royal palace. For a hiking adventure, plan a trip further north to the stunning Serra de Tramuntana mountains – the backbone of Mallorca and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
