Explore Barcelona's hidden gems by boat

Explore Barcelona's hidden gems by boat

Renowned for its vibrant atmosphere, historical architecture, and rich culture, Barcelona is one of Spain's most popular destinations that welcomes its visitors again and again. If you are looking for a new way to explore this colourful city and its many hidden gems, consider doing so by boat! Barcelona has a beautiful coast with lots of things to do and see.

If you are wondering how to go about getting a boat, however, then rest assured - yacht rental Barcelona services couldn't be any easier! The leading boat charter platform, Nautal, allows you to select from a wide range of options, based on your chosen dates. You may rent a boat for a few hours only or a few days - it's all up to you. 

So, the only thing you will need to worry about is choosing what to do on your yacht in Barcelona! Here are some fun ideas: 

Explore the secret cove of Cala Fonda

Tucked away from the busy city life, Cala Fonda, also known as 'Waikiki', is a hidden gem along the Barcelona coastline. This secluded cove, surrounded by dramatic cliffs, offers a tranquil retreat with its golden sands and crystal-clear waters. It is the perfect place to get some privacy, as you enjoy a peaceful swim or a picnic surrounded by stunning landscapes. Accessible only by boat or a steep footpath, Cala Fonda is truly a secret paradise that is a must to explore.

Enjoy some wildlife watching 

Keep your binoculars handy, because Barcelona is known for its diverse marine life! Dolphins are frequent visitors around the city's water and, if you're lucky, you will spot one of these playful creatures in your yacht rental Barcelona. The Mediterranean waters are home to various dolphin species, like Bottlenose and Striped Dolphins. Additionally, you can observe a variety of seabirds, including the Mediterranean Gull and Balearic Shearwater. 

Get adventurous with water sports

One of the most exciting activities to do when you have a boat in Barcelona is water sports! From adrenaline-pumping water sports such as jet-skiing, kayaking and paddleboarding to more relaxing activities like snorkelling and diving - anyone can find the perfect sport for an active afternoon in the waters. You can either rent the equipment in one of the many places in Barcelona or, in some cases, when you rent a yacht with Nautal, you can also request to have snorkelling equipment on board. 

Discover the Garraf Coast

Situated between Sitges and Castelldefels, the Garraf Coast offers stunning vistas with unique rock formations, rugged cliffs, white sand beaches, and turquoise blue waters. This destination will be like heaven for the nature enthusiasts, where you can relax and enjoy the views or watch the golden sunset. For sun worshippers, you may either soak up the rays on deck or stop by one of the beautiful beaches for the day. 

Final word

Breaming with hidden gems, pristine beaches, breathtaking coastline, and rich wildlife, Barcelona could not make for a more perfect destination to explore by boat. Luckily, Nautal makes yacht rental in Barcelona not only easy and convenient, but also accessible for various budgets and preferences.
