      1. Best places and best sailing routes

 Barcelona is one of the best places in the world for a day yacht charter. This amazing city have the perfect scenario for sailing: good weather, good sea, beautiful skyline and beautiful beaches (if you know where to go).

We want to show you where you can go when you rent a yacht by hour in Barcelona:

  • Montgat beach:

This is the best place to anchor if you rent a sailboat for 4 hours or a motor yach for 2 or 3 hours. This is the better beach near Barcelona, located next to the small village called Montgat, is less crowded than the beaches of the city, the water is very blue and clear, perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

It is very easy to find, you just have to sail along the coast to the north around 1,5 hours by sailboat or 20 min by motor yacht. If you rent the boat with skipper he will know to find it very easy.

  • Badalona beach:

This will be your best option if you take a 2 or 3 hours yacht charter.

It is the first beach (sailing to the north) out of Barcelona area, the water quality is better than the Barcelona one and it is near from port olímpic (1 hours in a sailboat and 15 min in a motor yacht).

Badalona beach

  • Skyline sailing trip:

If you rent a boat with skipper just for 2 or 3 hours and is not the warm season and you don’t want to swim, this is your best option.

Sailing from port olímpic, passing next to the W hotel and getting the north direction, you will enjoy the amazing views of the skyline of the city from the boat.

We recommend to sail until Badalona and come back to Barcelona.

      2. All types of boats you can rent (sailboat, catamaran, yacht or speed boat)

Depending on the number of people in your group and your preferences in terms of comfort, price and speed, one boat or another will be your best choice.

If you want to know all the pros and cons of every type of boat check our post: What kind of boat should I rent in Barcelona?

Find below a quick resume of the four options you have:

  • Sailboat:

The sailboats can take up to 12 people on board (11 + skipper). They are the best option if your group is 11 people or less. They are cheaper than the other options and you will be able to have the amazing feelings of sailing only with the sails without the motor.

  • Yacht:

The yachts are faster and more comfortable than the sailboats. They can sail fast from one beach to another. The bad thing they have is the price, they are more expensive due to the fuel consumption.
