Ibiza raises its anchor as Holy Week gets underway. The spring breeze unfurls the island’s sails. The winter rain and propitious March winds have scattered tense and bright green colours over the fields of Ibiza - the same green as the doors and window frames of the peasant farmers’ homes. The essence of the island is restored in the spring, and the must-see visits never end: the valley of Santa Agnes de Corona and its almond trees, Santa Gertrudis or Sant Mateu village... The street markets, like Las Dalias or Es Canar, open and the beach bars stretch their limbs while big beach clubs are still locked in slumber waiting for the discos to open their doors.
And although all that goes on inland, the sea around Ibiza and Formentera is now a privilege for just a few people. The coast, coves and beaten summer routes appear never to have experienced the intense hustle and bustle of seasons gone by. Our yachts and sailing boats for rental in Ibiza might cross the odd local fishing llaut or some type of rental boat...
The beaches have all the flavour of the postcards we normally buy in summer, as we wonder when this sun-kissed photograph an uncrowded beach was taken. And the answer is...right now! As we write these words, the temperature is above 20 degrees and the beaches are still empty. Ibiza’s beaches and coves are small Mediterranean paradises.
We recommend you spend the day on a boat in Ibiza and Formentera. Rent a small sailboat, yacht or inflatable boat, leave the port in the early hours of the morning and head for Formentera. Spend the day anchored in the islets and Cala Saona, then return to Ibiza in the late afternoon, just in time to see the sunset behind the mythical islet of es Vedrà. We’ll dock on one of the beaches of Sant Josep, like Vadella or sa Caleta, where we’ll off-load for a while to dine and try some of the island’s freshest fish: la “rotja” (red sea scorpion fish), a “gall” (John Dory) or some “espardenyes” (sea cucumbers).
You’ll have witnessed the very best of Ibiza, that element that only reveals itself to those who choose to sail its waters during these quiet months that usually dress up as summer.Back to blog
