Every year, people in their millions descend upon the shores and dance floors of the Balearic’s most popular island – Ibiza. It’s a mystical world where the pursuit of pleasure takes many forms, and somehow, no one ever leaves disappointed. As far as boat and bike holidays go, it’s Ibiza’s exquisite coastal and internal beauty that makes it such a popular destination.

The Balearic’s have much to offer, and to explore by bike and boat means not only are Ibiza’s many wonders at your disposal, but so too are the equally formidable islands of Mallorca and Formentera. With crystal clear waters, secluded bays and an ever-changing landscape, each day brings with it a unique expression of natural, scenic beauty; begging you to be one with mother nature in all her diverse glory. The islands also possess a rich and poignant history, much of which will become clear as you visit the many medieval sites still standing to this day.

And of course, food and drink play a huge part in Spanish life and culture, so prepare to be wined and dined on an endless supply of sangria and tapas, the perfect way to wind down after a day at the helm or saddle. Olé!

  • Ibiza’s exquisite coastal and internal beauty

  • Crystal clear waters, secluded bays and an ever-changing landscape
