Barcelona is known as one of the Mediterranean’s most lively, multicultural and vibrant superyacht destinations. The nearest international airport is just 18 kilometres away, the city is bathed in sunshine 320 days a year and the Balearic Islands right on its doorstep, making this the perfect spot for a European getaway.
Embark in the idyllic town of Port Vendres on the French-Spanish border and cruise along the Costa Brava towards Barcelona. Popular with nature-lovers, the coast boasts dramatic rock formations, rugged cliffs and protected anchorages.
Drop anchor in the Cap de Creus and tender to Cadaqués, a hub for artists of the 20th century — private visits can be arranged to Salvador Dali’s summerhouse. Find a table in the courtyard of Compartir for a lunch of Spanish sharing plates before taking a private car to the Celler Fartin Faixo, where you can take a tour of the vineyard and taste some truly fantastic wines.
Head back to your yacht for a cocktail on deck while your chef prepares a sumptuous meal paired with a bottle of local wine — relax and watch the sunset with your nearest and dearest.
