Ports

  • Malaga

    Malaga, together with adjacent towns and municipalities such as Rincon de la Victoria, Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Alhaurin de la Torre, Mijas, and Marbella, forms the Malaga Metropolitan area. The important cultural infrastructure and the rich artistic heritage have culminated in the nomination of Malaga as a candidate for the 2016 European Capital of Culture. The internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas were both born in Malaga. SeaDream calls to Malaga both as an embarkation point as well as a typical port of call. Kindly check on the land adventures tab to see all of the activities and options. Should you need embarkation information, it’s also available there.

  • Motril for Granada

    The port of Motril is the closest port to the ancient Moorish city of Granada, less than one hours drive up into the Sierra Nevada mountains. In Granada, the Alhambra, a Moorish citadel and palace, is the most famous building of the Andalusian Islamic historical legacy. Granada was the last Moorish city to surrender to the Christians during the "Reconquista" in 1492. The town of Motril is about two miles inland from the port. The beach of Playa Granada is a short walk from the dock to the fishing port.

  • Cartagena

    Cartagena was founded in the 3rd century BC and has been a major naval station. It is located in the Region of Murcia, southeastern Spain. Thanks to its strategic position on the Mediterranean, Cartagena has been inhabited by many different cultures which have left their mark on its rich cultural heritage during a glorious and turbulent history. It’s a very pleasant and relaxing city to walk around. SeaDream makes it easy is the yacht docks in the center of town. Guests have an option of a walking discovery adventure as well as resort golf at La Manga. Some guests also enjoy independent usage of the mountain bikes.

  • Ibiza, Balearic Islands

    Ibiza town is the largest city on this 3rd largest Balearic Spanish Island. It lies 79 kilometers (49 miles) off the coast of Valencia, in eastern Spain. Ibiza has become famous for its incredible nightlife and the electronic music that originated on the island. This UNESCO awarded city has some great land adventure options including resort golf, wine tasting, exploring the Dalt Villa and mountain biking to name a few. We try to stay late in the evening so guests can also get a taste of the nightlife.

  • Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands

    Situated on the southern coast of Mallorca, the largest city in the Balearic Islands archipelago is Palma. Mallorca’s cultural and economic hub is the 12th largest urban area in all of Spain. Palma has an area of 21.4 square kilometers, housing half the population of Mallorca and despite being compared to Barcelona and Florence, it is twinned with Naples, Italy. In 1983, Palma officially became the capital of the Balearic Islands. Originally founded by General Quintus Caecilius Metellus as a Roman camp in 123 B.C.E., the island of Mallorca was a part of the Tarraconensis province of Spain. The Romans established two ports, Pollentia to the northeast and Palma in the south. Palma was utilized as a port for Africa, while Pollentia was used for Roman cities in the northwest Mediterranean. Prior to the Muslim conquest and downfall of the Western Roman Empire, existed a period where the Byzantine Empire was on Mallorca. Due to the lack of documentation, the nature of this presence is unknown, but for the 10th century to 1229 A.D., Palma was under Islamic control as “Medina Mayurqa”. When James I of Aragon captured Palma in 1229, it was given municipality as “Cuitat de Mallorca”, and maintained as the capital of the Kingdom of Majorca. Perpignan and Palma became a joint capital of the Kingdom once James I of Aragon passed away. From 1229 onward, the foundations of Mallorcan society began to flourish, although various war-like events would soon take place. In 1391 began an anti-Jewish movement that forced the Jewish people to flee, convert, or be killed – actions that would ultimately be reinforced in the Inquisition. While the Revolt of 1450 was occurring, it was farmers that were then harassed. A river that divided the city would eventually spur social and economic issues as an Upper and Lower town of the city would be established. Mallorca was on the decline by the 16th century, and became a haven for pirates by the 17th century. Finally, the War of the Spanish Succession ended and destroyed the Crown of Aragon in 1714 when Barcelona fell. The city would eventually begin to thrive again as Charles III of Spain allowed commercial activity to bounce back by removing interdiction of commerce with the Spanish colonies in America. Once Algeria became occupied by France, fear of Maghredi attacks were eliminated, allowing further economic expansion with new maritime routes surfacing. Since 1950, Mallorca has become a prime tourist destination, growing from 600,000 visitors in 1960 to 19.2 million visitors by 2001. Tourists can view the old city, Arab baths, Palma Cathedral, Bellver Castle, or simply indulge in the beautiful Playa de S’amarador. For a glorious, picturesque scene of mountains, be sure to visit the Serra de Tramuntana and explore the UNESCO location overlooking the sea.

  • Mahon, Menorca, Balearic Islands

    Mahón (also known as Maó) is the capital of the Balearic Islands of Menorca. The arrival by sea is really incredible as the Captain enters via a fjord-like inlet and then turns that yacht around and docks in the heart of the city. The capital has an interesting mix of old and new architectural styles. SeaDream has arranged four separate and unique yachting land adventures that include Golf, Kayaking, Mountain Biking and “Mahon Musts”.

  • Tarragona

  • Malaga - The Magnificent Alhambra

    Description

    Discover the Alhambra - dramatic highlight of historic Granada on this unforgettable land adventure. The city is beautiful in its own right, but nothing in all of Spain compares to the wealth of architectural art to be found in the city's Muslim - Hispano complex - the 14th-century Alhambra.

  • Cartagena - Discover Cartagena – on foot

    Description

    Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Moors, Christians... Find out why Cartagena was a crossroads of cultures and one of the most important cities in the ancient world on this walking adventure which will give you an entertaining insight into nearly 3.000 years of history. Your walk starts through the old quarters to behold several modernist town houses built during the most recent period of splendor in this city, between the second half of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th century. You then plunge back in time to the period of Roman domination of this area from the 3rd century B.C. Here you find many vestiges of the Roman colonization, such as the Roman baths, "Via Augusta" (the main Roman thoroughfare in the Iberian Peninsula), and the magnificent remains of the Roman theatre, discovered by sheer chance just 20 years ago and still undergoing restoration. You then take an elevator up to the highest of the five hills which Cartagena was built on. Located overlooking the sea; this place chosen by the Christians to raise their main castle over the remains of the Moorish "Alcazar". From here you'll enjoy superb views of the whole city, including its immense natural harbor, well protected by the mountains surrounding it. The Bourbon king Carlos III chose this city to become one of the three main naval bases in Spain during the 18th century, along with "El Ferrol" and "Cadiz". Finally you will visit the Civil war Shelter-Museum. These galleries, excavated out of the "Cerro de la Concepcion" served as air-raid shelters and were still to be completed at the end of the Spanish Civil War. They were part of the works carried out to construct shelters with a capacity to hold 6,000 spectators during the considerable bombing that Cartagena was subjected to, as it was the naval base for a great part of the Republican fleet. Afterwards there will be free time to browse in the main street in the center of town, called "Calle Mayor".

  • Mahon, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Menorca Golf at "Son Parc"

    Description

    Golf Son Parc is a championship quality course, ideal for beginners and experienced golfers alike. The course is both challenging and picturesque. It is located just a few hundred meters from the award winning Son Parc beach on the north coast of Menorca. Around the course are wooded hills and a protected wet zone with a rich variety of bird life. In the distance are views of Monte Toro, Menorca’s highest point. We are taking great care that we develop the course sympathetically with the environment by leaving natural features such as rocks and planting with native flora. We are also happy to say that all our irrigation requirements are met from rainwater and from treated water - we do not take a single drop of fresh water (either from the mains or from wells) for the course. And we still have that very special feature of Golf Son Parc Menorca - a flock of peacocks who live just behind the third green. They are always happy to share their home with golf and we hope they add an extra touch of color to your round. The original 9-hole course was extended to 14 in 2003 and work on the last four holes to complete the 18 began in 2005. Major construction work was completed in Spring 2006 and, following a final period of growing and bringing the turf up to the required standard, the full 18 hole course was officially opened on 12th August 2006. Dave Thomas Golf Ltd has designed all the extensions. Dave is the ex-Ryder Cup player and designer of many top courses worldwide, including The Belfry courses & San Roque on the Costa del Sol.

  • Mahon, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Private Estate Visit and Wine

    Description

    Just a short drive surrounding the port of Mahon is the imposing and iconic farm of Sant Antoni or Golden Farm overlooking the Mahon harbor and once was one of the island’s biggest estates. Privately owned and not open to the general public, the house commands stunning views over the port, the Isla del Rey and the town of Mahón. Although the original two-roomed building dates back to Arab times, maybe as far back as the 12th century, the majority of the house was added during the 18th century, including the impressive Palladian style façade. Today, this certainly makes it one of the most prominent symbols of British presence on Menorca. The name Golden Farm was coined by sea captains in their ship’s logs because of the fields of corn nearby which were the only splash of yellow in another wise green countryside. The estate has been the property of the Delás family for more than 400 years and has been visited by such well-known people as the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII accompanied by his wife Alexandra, Kaiser Wilhelm and perhaps most famously Admiral Lord Nelson in the summer of 1800 and who slept on his own cot in a small bedroom as respite from his ship the Foudroyant which was anchored in Mahon harbour. You are told about the events which have shaped the chequered history of Menorca and of the famous people who have graced its rooms, and see the collection of antiques, china and artefacts within this beautifully preserved building. The discovery includes the reading room which houses an extensive collection of leather bound books and cupboards full of old documents which are currently being catalogued by the Island Council and digital copies made. There is also a facsimile of an unfinished letter from Nelson to Emma Hamilton written just before his last battle. The amazing historical events that have unfolded over the last 700 years can only really be understood by a visit. Continue on with a short drive to the bodega of Binifadet wines located in the small village of Sant Lluis which was founded by the French during the occupation of the island in the 18th century. Planting of vines at Binifadet began in 1979 and the experience of several vintages led them to expand those strains better adapted to the climate of the island. Wine has for centuries been produced on Menorca but always for local consumption and it is only in recent years with improving quality it has been recognized and is now much sought after by wine connoisseurs. A short orientation will be given and the wine process explained during which you will have the chance to taste some of their wine and wine jam. You will then be invited to sit on the terrace to enjoy a glass of wine and some Iberian Jam, bread with tomatoes and local cheese. From here your unique land adventure returns to the port and to your SeaDream yacht.

  • Mahon, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Mahon Musts (Monte Toro, Binisues & Fornells)

    Description

    Visit the small whitewashed fishing village of Fornells and then to Monte Toro the highest point of the island with panoramic views across Menorca. See how the prosperous families used to live in the country house of Binisues and sample some local pastries and drinks. The island of Menorca offers some of the most beautiful scenery in Spain - a series of lush, fertile and hilly vistas. Board a motor coach for an overview of this lovely island and some of her highlights. Heading out of Mahon, we take the north coast road to the small whitewashed fishing village of Fornells set on a magnificent bay of the same name. An important bay in olden days for ships to shelter from the strong north winds, the bay is now a pleasure ground for water sports which include windsurfing, kayaking and sailing. Fornells is also very well known locally for its fish restaurants and the King of Spain is amongst the many famous people that come here to eat the Menorcan Caldereta - a dish based on local lobster. We can then sit back and enjoy the view as we wind your way up the Monte Toro, Menorca's highest mountain. Looking back down on Fornells bay from the viewing points you can appreciate the size and beauty of the bay and surrounding countryside. The buildings date from the 14th century and in the courtyard you will find a small bronze statue dedicated to the Menorcans who immigrated to Florida in the 18th century and settled in the area around Saint Augustine. The next stop is at the stately Binisues country house situated in the area of Ferreries called "Pla Verd" the "green flatland". It belongs to a prosperous Menorcan family and remains a working farm but also houses a very unique museum. The items in the museum show you how the rich Menorcan families used to live and has a large collection of farm tools, equipment and general household utensils. Along with the antique furniture can also be seen an interesting and amazing natural science exhibition which is well worth a visit.

  • Motril for Granada - The Magnificent Alhambra

    Description

    Discover the Alhambra - dramatic highlight of historic Granada on this unforgettable land adventure. The city is beautiful in its own right, but nothing in all of Spain compares to the wealth of architectural art to be found in the city's Muslim - Hispano complex - the 14th-century Alhambra. This breathtaking example of Moslem architecture is completely encircled by walls and towers - palaces, military buildings, a fortress and the administrative centers of a bygone era all lie protected within. Explore this remarkable structure on foot and marvel at the detailed mosaics, prism-style cupolas, and stone-cast latticework that speak to a surprising grace and sophistication. The nearby Generalife, surrounded by water gardens, was the residence of Kings in need of refuge, and in direct contrast, the stunning El Vino Gate commissioned by Carlos V is built in the purest Renaissance style of the 16th-century.By special SeaDream arrangement, a typical Spanish tapas meal with wine, bottled water and dessert is provided after your walk at the Ruta del Vileta restaurant at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The restaurant is a favorite of King Juan Carlos I during the skiing holidays of the Spanish Royal Family.

    Notes

    Once in Granada there will be ample opportunity to walk as the gardens and the palace are explored on foot. The return journey is usually relaxed and quiet helped along by the Spanish wine served during your tapas break. The Alhambra is one of the most visited monuments in Europe! This fact, together with logistical restrictions on access for conservation reasons, means that it is not always easy, or possible, to obtain entrance tickets. We suggest you pre-book this program with the SeaDream reservations department to avoid disappointment. Once requested, this land adventure is non-refundable and only valid for the day issued! A minimum number of participants is required to operate this land adventure. The journey to Granada requires about one hour. The guides are very good and will keep you entertained as well as informed as you cross the Spanish countryside.

Not all of the land adventures shown will be offered on all voyages and departure times are subject to change. Final pricing and departures times will be published onboard

  • Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands - Wonderful villages of Valldemossa and Soller

    Description

    Visit Valldemossa, one of the most beautiful and traditional villages on the island, which is nestled in a valley within the northern mountain range, a short distance from Palma. From the port, the coach will head towards La Cartuja, an ancient monastery that was originally built as a royal hunting lodge and was later inhabited by Carthusian monks. The monks were expelled in 1835, the venue was privatized, and the monks' quarters became lodging for travelers. During the winter of 1838, the famous Polish composer Frederick Chopin and the French writer Georges Sand lived in this monastery. George Sand later wrote a book "A Winter in Majorca," which tells of time spent on the island. Other interesting sites are a small chapel, a Middle Age pharmacy, and the monk's library. The King Sancho's Palace will also be visited. You will enjoy a 10-minute piano concert before free time for shopping and exploration in Valldemossa on your own. Lunch will be served in a restaurant before continuing on to Soller. One of the main attractions in Soller is the church, which was built in 1912 by architect Juan Rubio I Bellver, a pupil of the famed Antoni Gaudi. Your trip will be highlighted by a return journey to Palma in the electric Soller Train. This is a very scenic, one-hour ride on an old-fashioned electric train, which still uses wooden cars. The ride will take you through 13 tunnels over a distance of approximately 17 miles, traveling amidst some breath-taking landscapes. Back in Palma, the coach will take you back to your SeaDream yacht.

  • Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands - The Drach Caves & Pearls

    Description

    A leisurely drive through the countryside, dotted with windmills and farms, brings you to the Caves of Drach, a spectacular underground attraction. The caves contain countless strangely shaped stalactites and stalagmites, reflecting in the clear pools. It's a beautifully eerie sight, as is Martell Lake, one of the world's largest subterranean lakes, which shimmers provocatively in the manmade lights from above. After emerging from the caves, you will witness another phenomenon: highly prized Mallorca pearls being made in a factory. These faux pearls, made from natural marine products, are nearly indistinguishable from the real thing. After discovering the gems of Mallorca, you will return to your SeaDream yacht.
