Sailing from South East Spain – Alicante, Valencia, Barcelona, and the Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and more

If you are looking to combine the South East mainland coast of Spain with the Balearics in a sailing itinerary, you will probably sail across from any of the coastal ports along the coast running from Alicante to Barcelona. This coast includes Denia and Valencia. Since this coast covers some of Spain's major cities, you will find that much of this coastline is built up but, you do also get some nature reserves. In fact, the coast immediately South of Denia is a nature reserve and you must stay at a cruising speed of below 3 knots here.

Denia is also one of the key mainland departure and arrival points for Ibiza ferries, because Ibiza is the closest point from the Balearics to the mainland. It is also the westernmost point of the Balearics and the distance to Denia is only about 70 nautical miles. The Marina de Denia is expensive but a new and well organised marina where visitors are welcome. The marina offers some bars, restaurants, shower facilities and a petrol / diesel quay. El Portet is another marina, next to Roset beach offer moorings for visitors in a secure environment at lower rates. This marina however has limited facilities but it does have the essential - a bar!

In contrast Mallorca is close to Barcelona on the mainland, but that distance is approximately 100 nautical miles. The coast from Barcelona to Valencia, is generally flat and featureless, save the Catalonian coast closer to Barcelona or further North East heading to France. This area, in addition to the major harbours of Tarragona and Barcelona, offers the opportunity to visit smaller harbours such as Sitges just south of Barcelona and then Blanes, Llafranc, Roses and Llansa heading to the French border in the other direction.

Depending on time available, charters combining the mainland with the Balearics may benefit from being one way to save repeating the crossing to the Balearics. One option is to head to Mallorca from Barcelona or another option is to cross to Ibiza from Denia which is roughly halfway between Valencia and Alicante. A combination of mainland Spain and the Balearics is recommended for experienced sailors only, looking for a route with active sailing, rather than coastal excursions which the Balearic Islands would be more suitable for.

My husband and I are looking for a 3 day sailing trip, with a skipper, where we can "learn the ropes" and experience sailing along the coast of Spain. We have minimal experience but are hard workers and would love a great experience. The trip should be 3 days, any time 9/15-10/5 We will be in Barcelona and Malaga. We would need a skipper, maybe one crew member, possibly a chef. Hi, I want to hire a boat with a captain for the day from Alicante or Torrevieja for 7 adults and two babies. Thank you!
