If you don't have any experience, you have the option of renting a boat with a skipper and letting yourself go.

4. Would it be possible to go around Ibiza and Formentera by catamaran?
Of course! That is a perfect option since both the island of Ibiza and Formentera have beaches and perfect areas to anchor and spend an unforgettable vacation. Always let the captain advise you which will be the best area to navigate. Conditions change every day so one day it will be better to be on one side of the island and the next day it may be better to move to the other side. The good thing about Ibiza and Formentera is that they are relatively small islands with good sheltered beaches, so you will always find a good quiet place to spend the night.
5. What are the advantages of renting a catamaran compared to a sailboat?
Basically the greatest advantage of catamarans over sailboats is their excellent space and distribution. They are authentic houseboats, with a huge beam which makes the cabins spacious, with double beds and often with a bathroom per cabin. In addition, they have an incredible space on deck with big areas between the hulls that are the best places to lie down and relax. Another of its main advantages is its stability. By having two hulls widely separated from each other, the movements of the waves are practically imperceptible so you can forget about swinging from side to side and you will sleep as if you were in your own home.
