9 days in Barcelona on a superyacht

Day 1:

Port Vendres to Costa Brava


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.

Day 2:

Costa Brava to Barcelona


Enjoy a languid breakfast on board before heading to Port Estartit for an afternoon of exploring around the Medes Islands. Set in a popular marina park, it’s a fantastic spot for diving and snorkelling.

If you have time, be sure to visit the Sant
 Sebastià Lighthouse for unrivalled ocean views and enjoy a drink on the beautiful terrace at Hotel el Far. Take a private car to Casa del Mar in a fishing village called Calella de Palafrugell, a Michelin starred restaurant located a few steps from the sea.

Back on board, continue on to the OneOcean Port Vell marina at the heart of Barcelona.
