Balearia Ferry Lines Euro







Eurolinies Maritimes started operations, under the brand Balearia, in July 1998 driven by a group of former executives, captains and officers of the shipping company Flebasa. Adolfo Utor Martinez was nominated president of the new company.

From the very beginning, Balearia drew up a plan of action for the expansion and modernization of the fleet, which included the immediate addition of new vessels. Balearia enjoyed the commitment of its personnel in its strive for quality, reflected today in high levels of security, service and customer care.

Initially, Balearia operated the Denia-Ibiza-Palma routes (ferry services), Ibiza-Formentera (ferry services and high-speed vessels), Ibiza-Palma (ferry services) and Denia-Ibiza (ferry and Ro-Ro services). Those routes were completed with the Valencia-Palma route (Ro-Ro cargo traffic), which was inaugurated in June 2000, and the Alcudia-Mahon route operated since July 2002. The inclusion - in June 2001- of Federico Garcia Lorca, a super fast high-speed ferry that operates the Denia-Ibiza-Palma route and also performs direct services Denia-Palma, has meant a complete change in communications both between and within the Balearic Islands.

Balearia still aims at expansion and growth, and is working on future projects such as the incorporation of new lines and the enlargement of its fleet. In October 2002, Balearia launched the super fast high-speed ferry Ramon Llull, built at the shipyard Rodriquez, which will be operational from June 2003. Furthermore, at the beginning of year 2003 Balearia created the Nautas Al-Maghreb, company, which start on April a new maritime route Tangier-Algeciras operated by a super fast ferry. Its features will enable it to do the crossing in less than one hour.

In 2004 BALEARIA's fleet was enlarged with two super fast ferry catamarans: Nixe I and Nixe II. The first of which inaugurated the Denia-Ibiza-Formentera route in august 2004.

The quality, frequency, and competitiveness of the services of Balearia over the routes it manages have allowed this shipping company to position itself as a leader in the traffic within the islands - both in terms of passenger volume and sales- and as the absolute leader in the Balearic Islands by passenger volume.

For Balearia it is fundamental to become a bridge between the Balearic Islands and the Iberian Peninsula. After the September 11th attack there was an important upheaval in the tourist industry, which for the Balearic Islands meant a decrease in the number of connections with the Iberian Peninsula. In those difficult times, Balearia maintained its commitment to the Balearic Islands by keeping all its routes within the islands and with the mainland, and continued with its projects of opening new routes and incorporating new vessels. In June 2003 the fast ferry Ramon Llul started operating. The length of this ferry is 83,35 metres, and it was built to be able to get into small ports. It operates the Barcelona-Majorca (Alcudia) - Minorca (Ciutadella and Mahon) routes, and in 2004 the Nixe I and Nixe II vessels were added to Balearia's fleet.

  • Palma de Mallorca, the city of the courtyards

Mallorca Ferries

Even if the main tourist appeal of Majorca is the beauty of its beaches and creeks, the largest of the Balearic Islands also has a great variety of landscapes. These include the central plain - which includes El Raiguer, El Pla and Migjorn-, the peaks of Serra de Tramuntana, the small hills of Serra de Llevant and one of the most visited coasts in the Mediterranean sea.

This privileged environment is the reason why millions of Europeans have chosen Majorca as a holiday resort. In order to maintain a balance between urban development and the protection of the environment, many of those rich and assorted landscapes (almost 40%) are protected areas: the natural reserves of s'Albufera, sa Dragonera and Mondrago, Serra de Tramuntana and the Maritime and terrestrial National Park of Cabrera.

The diversity of Majorca not only exists in its landscapes; the city and the countryside also coexist on this Mediterranean island. Along side the cultured architecture of the city of Palma and the aristocratic residences distributed along the countryside of Majorca, we can find ancient olive and almond trees, kitchen gardens, fishing ports and watchtowers.

Present and past also converge in this island. Its oldest vestiges can be found in the shape of dolmens, artificial caves, talaiotic necropoli, and walled-villages, all of which are distributed throughout the island. Examples include the prehistoric town ses Paisses, the prehistoric ruins of Capocorb Vell and the talaiotic town of son Fornes. It is also possible to visit the roman remains at the old town of Pollentia and, from the Muslim domination, the Arab baths of Palma.

If sightseeing, the natural protected areas and the beaches are not enough for you, Majorca also has a great variety of leisure options. Water parks, dolfinariums, exotic birds, historical gardens, golf, cycling, racetracks... for those who want to stay in land. Dinghy sailing, surfing, canoeing, scuba diving, diving, water-skiing... for those who prefer to submerge themselves in the sea. Those who want to enjoy an exceptional view from the air can choose between paragliding, gliding or ballooning. All of this is just during the day! At night, if it hasn't been enough, you can continue the tour to the numerous pubs and discos of the island, or choose concerts, theatre, opera, ballet, folklore performances or popular festivities.

Gastronomy lovers will find, in Majorca, a great variety of dishes to choose from: 'tumbet' (fried vegetables with tomato sauce), 'trempo' (Majorcan salad), 'cocarrois' (spinach pastries), 'arros brut' (saffron rice cooked with chicken, pork and vegetables), 'sobrasada' (raw minced pork with hot red pepper) ..., without forgetting the desserts, headed by 'ensaimada' (fluffy, spiral-shaped pastries dusted with sugar and filled with anything from pumpkin jam to sobrassada sausage),but also including sweets such as 'crespells '(a kind of shortbread) or 'robiols' (pumpkin jam or cheese pastries).

  • Minorca - The Green Island

Ferrie to Minorca

The island of Minorca is the second largest of the Balearic Islands in terms of surface area, after Ibiza, and the third in population. It has an area of 702 square kilometres and 216 kilometres of coast. The maximum distance between two points is 47 kilometres, between Ciutadella and Mahon. Geologically, the island is divided in two symmetric halves with very different features. The north, with a rough and unequal coast, scarce vegetation and many hills, has numerous small islands and beaches with reddish or dark coloured sand. The south, made up of calcareous rocks, is flat, with light cliffs, gullies sculpted by the water and white sand bays surrounded by pines.

The highest point on the island is El Toro, at 357 metres. Minorca has a population of 67.000 inhabitants concentrated in eight municipalities: Mahon -administrative capital-, Ciutadella -former capital-, Alaior, Es Mercadal, Ferreries, Es Migjorn Gran, Sant Lluís and Es Castell. The first two are the most populous, with more than 20.000 inhabitants each. There are three more villages, two in Mahon -Sant Climent and Llucmaçanes- and one in Es Mercadal -Fornells-.

Minorca was declared Biosphere Reserve in October 1993, by UNESCO. The core of the reserve is 'S'Albufera des Grau', a natural reserve very rich in Mediterranean fauna and flora species. This is the protected area par excellence, but the island also enjoys other catalogued areas, such as ANEI, a natural area of specific interest. The rest of the island is made up of areas focussed on the socio-economic support the reserve, such as the villages.

The tourism of Minorca is made up mainly of families, with the result that the peak season is more peaceful than in other destinations of the Balearic Islands. Entrepreneurs and official bodies are implementing a lot of methods to ensure they have quality tourism. However, apart from tourism, Minorca has an important agricultural sector, cheese (formatjo) manufacturers with the mark of origin 'Mao-Menorca', and a shoe and costume jewellery industry, which complement the economic tissue of the island.

Minorca is spattered with various pieces of evidence from the passing of different cultures: from prehistoric sites to English architecture, fruit of the British colonisation two centuries ago.

The island prides itself on having a large range of rich cultural activities during the whole year, but the best known are the Week of the Opera and the Summer Classical Music festivals.

The festivities of Minorca have as their main protagonists the horses and horsemen that represent, as set by the ancient tradition, the different classes of society. The festivities of Sant Joan in Ciutadella deserve a special attention - in fact, they are known throughout the world.

The gastronomy is very varied, thanks to the fruits of the sea and land, with the most well known dish being the 'caldereta de llagosta' (lobster stew).

  • Ibiza - The Island of Contrasts

Ferries to Ibiza

The arrival by sea into the port of Ibiza offers a unique view of Dalt vila, declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1999. The sobriety of the cathedral, the Renaissance city walls, and the labyrinth of small streets that surround it, contrast with the cheerful and cosmopolitan atmosphere of the port, especially during summer nights, and have rightly contributed to the fame of the island.

Taking a walk to the inner part of the island, it is easy to understand why, from ancient times, it has been know as pitiusa, the island of the pines. In addition there are olive and almond, trees and rosemary and juniper woodlands... Visiting the inner part of the island in Summer means being submerged in a sea of colours: the red of the land, the greens of nature, splashed by the white of the lime of the houses and churches... Inside the nucleus of Sant Josep we can find sa Talaia, the highest point on the island, from where we can enjoy a wonderful view of Ibiza; while from Sant Llorenç we can't miss visiting the rural architectural site of Balafia.

One of the main appeals for the visitors of the island is its 18 kilometres of beaches and creeks, from the most developed to the most virgin. It is worth getting lost along the coast and discovering the corners and bays of white sand and of pebble, which are hidden there. One example is the impressive view of the majestic small island of Es Vedrà from the Cala d'Hort, or ses Salines, in the village of Sant Josep. This constitutes the large humid area of Ibiza, from where it is possible to contemplate the numerous species of birds and make fascinating excursions.

Regarding gastronomy, highlights include fish dishes, such as 'guisat de peix' (fish stew) or 'borrida de rajada' (crayfish in almond sauce), desserts, such as 'flao' (a cheesecake made with herbs and honey), 'orelletes' (olive oil bread) or 'greixonera' (pudding made with ensaimadas); and sweet liqueurs: 'frigola' (slightly dry liqueur) and 'herbes eivissenques'. (alcohol flavoured with aniseed, thyme, rosemary, lemon and orange peel)

To pick up a souvenir that is not typical, it is worth visiting one of the craft markets of the island dating from the hippie period of the 70s, such as es Canar or Las Dalias, en Sant Carles.

  • Formentera Island - Paradise of Turquoise Waters

Formentera Island Ferries

The island of Formentera is the smallest and most southern of the Balearic Islands. It has a size of 84 square kilometres and a population of around 5,000. Its main charm is the natural environment and, most importantly, its beaches with white sand and transparent waters. Formentera is an almost entirely flat island except for two promontories, one on each end: Cap de Barbaria with the mountain Puig Guillem (109 metres) and Mola with its Talaiassa (192 metres), the highest point of the island. On the northern part of the island there are two salt-water ponds: s'Estany Pudent and s'Estany des Peix.

Formentera, the smallest of the Pitiuses islands, has only one municipality. Due to its characteristics it has been impossible to build an airport, and hence, the only communication with Formentera is by sea. From the larger Pitiusa island - Ibiza - the communication with the port la Savina is very good, with fast vessels and cargo vessels running this route frequently. The two islands are separated by 12 miles, with a few small islands distributed throughout the pas de es Freus. Due to its small dimensions, the main road is only 19 kilometres long, making Formentera a perfect place to enjoy cyclotourism or hiking.

It has only been three centuries since Formentera was permanantly populated, even though the first human presence goes back to the bronze age. The funeral remains of ca na Costa, discovered in 1974, date from 1,600 b. C. and are open to the public They are properly signposted at the exit of the tourist area of es Pujols towards la Savina. Formentera also has several Phoenician and Roman remains, although not as many as Ibiza.

The 25th of August is the day of the patron saint of Formentera, Sant Jaume, when the island is full of local festivities and peasant dances.

The gastronomy of Formentera is very similar to that of Ibiza, although it is said that the fish is even fresher and better. The razor shell and the lobster are two kinds of shell-fish that are particularly good. Confectionery is based, as in Ibiza, on the 'flao' (a cheesecake made with herbs and honey) and the 'greixonera'. (pudding made with ensaimadas).

  • Denia - on The Slopes of Montgo

Ferries to Denia

The municipality of Denia, province of Alicante, has an area of 66 square kilometres and a population of over 30.000. The city, is located at the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula and is very close to the Cap de Sant Antoni, the closest point of the Iberian Peninsula to the Balearic Islands. The communications by land are good via the road N-332 and the highway A-7. Denia is 95 kilometres away from both Valencia and Alicante, both of which have international airports. The city also has daily maritime communication with Palma and Ibiza.

The city of Denia is located in a natural port on the slopes of Montgo (753 metres high) - a hill crowned by a very ancient castle. The port serves as the division between the northern beaches, Les Marines, and the southern ones, Les Rotes. The castle, with Arab remains, is well worth a visit, along with other monuments and museums showing the history of the city, as well its archaeological and ethnic history.

Denia is a tourist city, especially loved by many Germans that adopt it as a residence for the whole year. Despite the countless visitors it receives, it is very peaceful and it has very beautiful, endless beaches It is said that Denia is the Spanish city that has the most official holidays, mainly due to the fact that, for its inhabitants, any excuse is good enough to organise festivities. The 'fallas' are the most traditional and local celebrations, using fire as the main symbol, celebrated throughout the region.

Denia's gastronomy has many similarities with the rest of the Comunitat Valenciana (autonomous region of Valencia). The 'paellas' and many kinds of rice are the main dishes, as well as many fish recipes.

  • Barcelona - Mediterranean, Cosmopolitan, Avant-Garde

Barcelona Ferry

Mediterranean, cosmopolitan, avant-garde, cultural, modern and modernist, olympic, gothic... the adjectives which can be used to define the city of Barcelona are endless...and this city bordering the Mediterranean sea and the mountains of Montjuïc and Collserola offers its visitors an endless number of options.

Barcelona is a city of rich and varied arquitectura with emblematic buildings designed by the most internationally famous Catalan architect, Gaudí. Just seeing La Pedrera , la Sagrada Familia or la Casa Batlló makes visiting the city worthwhile.

Although Barcelona's public transportation system is excellent, the best way to get to know the city is by walking through its streets. If you stroll through the gothic quarter, you'll be astonished each step of the way: the Catedral , Plaça del Rei , Portal del Bisbe, Plaça Felip Neri . Don't forget to take the obligatory walk through La Rambla, the heart of the city, beating with vibrancy at any hour of the day or night, whether you are in the colourful Boqueria market , the entrance to the Liceu or watching any of the numerous spectacles taking place on the street.

With respect to cultural visits, Barcelona has a number of museums, including the Picasso (on Montcada street, declared a world heritage site by the Unesco), the Joan Miro Foundation or Macba (museum of contemporary art).

The city offers a wide variety of leisure time activities, as the thousands of tourists that come to Barcelona each year know very well. Film , theatre , dance, an aquarium , the Tibidabo amusement park, the Imax-Port Vell , the zoo , restaurants, bars... Nightlife abounds throughout practically the entire city: Old town (pubs, fashionable bars, terraces), Maremagnum (sit-down bars and discos), Eixample (tech music bars, live music, salsa, ambience...), Gracia (bars and terraces for the younger crowd), the Olympic Harbour (discos, bars, restaurants...).

  • Ciutadella

Ciutadella ferries

Ciutadella is often called the capital of western Minorca since it was the capital of the island for years before the first British occupation. It is the second largest city on the island with a population of 21,000 people and has a number of majestic buildings to visit, including the Gothic Cathedral, the Town Hall, and numerous palaces. But undoubtedly, Ciutadella is famous worldwide for its festivals. On the Day of San Juan horses and riders in mass take over the city, riding through the streets of the town. Medieval horse games are also offered along the port. You can visit one of the oldest and well-preserved prehistoric buildings on the island, called the Naveta des Tudons, on the outskirts of Ciutadella. The city's coastal area is the longest on the island, and there you can find beautiful beaches with white sand and turquoise-blue water. Don't hesitate to visit Algaiarens and Cala Pilar, to the north, and Macarella, Cala en Turqueta and Arenal de Son Saura, on the south coast.

  • Mahon - The Administrative Capital of Minorca

Ferries to Mahon

Mahon is the administrative capital of Minorca; it is located on the eastern side and has a population of 22.000 inhabitants, a figure very similar to the population of Ciutadella, the so-called western capital. Mahon has the world´s second largest natural harbour after Pearl Harbour bay.

BALEARIA Ferries wishes to make its journeys as pleasant as possible and provide you with a wide-ranging series of entertainment services on all their vessels so that your journeys across the Mediterranean become a real pleasure.
