Mention the joys of the Mediterranean and many of us automatically think of sailing, for good reasons. You could say that the sheer beauty of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and tiny Formentera are best experienced by boat.
You may simply want to head up the coast, drop anchor at an idyllic bay and be home for dinner. If you fancy a more ambitious voyage round the islands, there are plenty of stunning locations to head for.
