ABOUT THE TRIP ...
The diary routine in your holidays in EL BARCO INGLES is very simple... Imagine you wake up and if you want, directly refresh yourself jumping to the sea like a pool, as you have it a 3 meters from you. Breakfast in the deck, some activity like swim, snorkel, etc, and set sail toward next bay to have our lunch. Normally this crossing will be a short trip, around one or two hours, which enjoy sunbathing and relaxing in the deck. Later, bathing in the sea, lunch, "siesta" and after maybe we change of bay to spend the night, which depending of the place, you can go to enjoy of party in Ibiza or also having parties together with rest of the crews, onboard this or other ship, or in the beach.
During this holidays on boat, we accommodate between 8-10 persons plus the skipper. The sailboat will be our flat and at the same time our transport method. Furthermore, we will be together from Valencia and all the tour, with several boats (number depends on which week, but we have formed a fleet of 7 boats, around 60 persons), to form a bunch of people similar to you, with whose you could interact all days in the dinner, visits ashore, etc., as we follow the same route and we meet us each day
To start our holidays, we meet us in the port, in Valencia, in a beach bar near of shipping pantoon, on Saturday around 16:30pm to speak about security rules, behaviour onboard, the knowledge of sailboat, etc. and after that we will elaborate the shopping list with all supplies to travel on the sailboat according skipper instructions.
Once we have maden shopping list, we will go to buy it to a near supermarket. Do this way implies a huge costs savings for the crew, because this allows us to eat and drink in the sailboat all time, and even enjoy your favourites brands. However, you can always have the possibility to eat in restaurants in the bays which we visit.
In return from supermarket, after to stowed supplies, we’ll have our dinner and prepare to sail. In Valencia and in summer, with normal weather, we should wait at night to have good conditions of seaworthiness and then we start our cruise in sailboat, leaving Valencia. Usually, we will sail around midnight.
We travel during all night and in the morning, we will arrive to Ibiza, normally at the first bay, Benirrás, where once we were anchored, we can bath, swim, dive.. and then we will begin to enjoy our holidays in sailboat through Ibiza & Formentera!!!

Close to midnight, about 23pm, after to have our dinner, we set sail course Ibiza with destination Cala Benirrás. In June, while we are leaving Valencia, we could watch from our sailboats the fireworks which offer us town council all Saturdays at 00:00pm
We sail all night (about 12 hours of cruise). Most of the crew can sleep. Anyone who wish it, they could participate in the roster guards in the cockpit during the cruise. It is very usual to watch dolphins... Believe me... it is a magic moment!
We wake up while we are just approaching to the island of Ibiza, near of Cala Benirras, where we enjoy the rest of the day, swim, siesta and in the afternoon we could see the sunset in the beach. Cala Benirras is a little bay, surrounded by nature, forest and protected between hills. This is a magic time to meet all together, on the beach, the crews from all sailboats to watch the spectacular sunset in an ambient of Ibiza party, environment to the tumultuous and improvised hippie drums show, Tamborada, here every Sunday. Later we can visit the hippie flea market and take a drink in beach bars. The night party with the drums setting, surrounded of uncountable crowd, is a unique experience
After to have a breakfast, and take a morning bath in the clear waters, we can watch the fish between rocks or go diving in a near interesting little cave. After a while we set our course towards Ensenada d´Abarca. This is a bay less travelled by tourists where is really difficult to access from land, because in this place there aren´t roads neither buildings. Furthermore it is surrounded by mountains and for a gorgeous natural landscape where the access is exclusive only by boat. In that place we can jump to the sea, practise snorkel, have a lunch and relax us.
After have a lunch, we set sail with course to San Antonio de Portmany to spend the night in its bay. But no very late, as we have enough time to arrive to Cafe del Mar, to watch the famous sunset, in first line, among thousands people. Finally we go to have a meetup in a beautiful restaurant called Villa Mercedes, where we celebrate a multitudinous dinner where we will participate among all crews from all boats of our vessels.
Anyone who wish it, they could go later toward the city of Ibiza or go some other discotheques, for their own means . Also they we can stay in San Antonio and enjoy the lively night party in this town and interact with other crew who remains there.
In the morning we will sail to Cala d´Hort, front to island Es Vedrá, where we will anchor, have a lunch and take a bath. After to have our lunch we set sail course to Port Roig.
In the afternoon, just anchored in Port Roig, we can watch other amazing sunset from our sailboats. At midnight, after to have our dinner, we will go ashore in our auxiliary dinghy, and anyone who wishes could take a bus rented between all crew which take us to Ibiza city, where we could enjoy of famous discotheques of the island of Ibiza, like Pacha.
We get up and travel to S´Espalmador. This place is a little island located between Ibiza and Formentera, which is famous for his mud bath and for the amazing beach which look like from Caribbean or Polynesia. We are in the Parque Natural de Ses Sailnes, so we must behave to leave the environment like we found at our arrive. The island is inhabited and we must get something to drink from our boats. We can´t leave rubbish in the island.
After that, we will anchor in Cala Saona, in Formentera, to have our lunch, where we have a bath in its clear turquoise-colour waters. This little bay is some of most beautiful we can visit.
In Cala Saona we spend around 24 hours, until lunch time on Thursday. Free time: We have free the afternoon and the morning Thursday. We can rent a motorcycle or bikes to tour Formentera. A good option, on Wednesday in the afternoon, is go to visit "El Faro de La Mola", it is a lighthouse, a magic place where Julio Verne took his inspiration. We mustn’t leave without visit the flea market of La Mola: All Wednesday and Sunday, from June until October, from 16:00h until 21:00h, "Fira de La Mola" receives the artisan centre and the artisan works with different materials like wood, silver, stone... Even more there are stands where we can buy artesian products very sundry and high quality, and there is a good atmosphere and We can frequently enjoy music show on live!
An advice: if you don´t have practise or you don´t feel comfortable riding in motorbike, the best way is to rent a car between some crew members, as if you don´t have practice on motorbikes,it is very easy to suffer small crashes.
In the morning we will visit with the motorbikes the rest of Formentera. We could visit Illetas, Salinas or "El faro del Cap de Berbería" for example.
In the afternoon we set sail to the island of Ibiza again, and a good option is Cala Jondal, where if the sea condition allowed us, we will anchor to spend our last hours in Ibiza and have a few drinks in Blue Marlin, trendy beach bar with beautiful people and the greatest exponent of Ibiza party, where most of costumers visit it from boats, thanks at its taxi-boat service and access by a nice berth. Is very easy to find VIPs as neighbours of anchor or in the same bar alike.
After have a few drinks, we come back to have a dinner in our boat if we haven’t ashore. Before, we must start to cruise back Valencia.
Early morning, over at 3 am or 4a.m, we set course to Valencia, arriving in the port in the early afternoon. Once ashore, we can primp ourselves to go out for dinner with all the fleet crew members in some of restaurants near of Marina Real.
At 8am in the morning we say farewell and end of our marvellous holidays in sailboat to Ibiza and Formentera, and therefore end our services. The costumers are kindly requested to adhere at this deadline at 8:00 a.m., because at this time will start the cleaning and maintenance services to prepare the sailboat to the next crew the coming week, as they will arrive a few hours before
