Why you should rent a boat in Spain

Not sure whether you should rent a boat in Spain? Here’s why!

With several coastlines to choose from on Spain’s Atlantic and Mediterranean-facing sides, by far the most popular areas are along the east, including Costa Blanca, Costa Brava and the Balearic Islands. Learning how to rent a boat is easy; simply choose from a wide variety of vessels and select your charter with a skipper for a week—or just a few days—to indulge in Spain’s best beaches and sea views.

Island Hopping

You’ve certainly heard of Menorca, Mallorca, Ibiza & the beautiful Formentera! These are the Spanish Balearic islands to the east of Spain forming what is called an archipelago.
