Spain Charter Hightlights
Aside from relaxing on deck and making friends with your crew, there are some additional highlights you’ll want to check out during your boat charter to Spain.
History and Culture
Spain is a country rooted in medieval traditions and religious history; one that, today, has created a mixed culture that values art, music, gastronomy, history and like many Mediterranean countries, an appreciation of living life to the fullest. From national festivals to fiery people, seemingly celestial architecture and idyllic surroundings, Spain embraces a unique, self-induced culture that can only be found within its borders.
From the Basque country and Southern Spain, to Valencia, Barcelona, the Balearic Islands and beyond, every corner of the country has developed a thriving culinary scene. Its most popular dishes – like paella, a rice dish originated in Valencia; gazpacho, a cold soup; chorizo, a spicy, seasoned sausage – are coupled with seductive aromas, like fresh olive oils and garlic. As you taste your way through the country, pair your meals with fine Spanish wines and sangrias.
As the third largest country in Europe, Spain has a diverse landscape – and the Meseta Plateau takes up nearly half of the country’s land area. In and around this landmark, Spain is covered in mountain ranges, countless coastal bays, secluded coves and white-sand beaches, making it the perfect destination for curious yacht charter guests to anchor at and explore.
Start with dinner, and end up dancing the night away in one of Spain’s vibrant neighborhood bars. In Spain, the wine is always flowing, the music is always upbeat and the party goes on until early the next morning. Don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes.
Best Time to Charter in Spain
For the most part, the Spanish coast maintains a Mediterranean climate: one with hot, dry summers and mild, sometimes rainy winters. And while it is accessible all year long, when it comes to Spain yacht charters, there are some months that are better than others for traveling – most notably, July and August. Due to hot, sunny days and mild water temperatures perfect for outdoor adventures, the summer months are very popular among yacht charter guests.
On the other hand, May and September promise some of Spain’s best temperatures – the sun will still be shining but the days will be more moderate. During this time of year, yacht charter guests can be found playing in the sun, exploring the islands by foot and even anchoring their yacht for some fun swimming in the sea.
