Click&Boat Reveals Top Summer Travel Trends for 2023

Recent data, released on 1 June 2023, shows the most booked destinations for UK travellers with Click&Boat this summer are as follows: 

  1. Spain
  2. Italy
  3. Greece

Focusing on Spain, the Balearic Island of Ibiza is a British favourite with 33% of bookings; in second place is Mallorca with 26%; and in third place is Marbella with 14%.

The average spend for one night is €979 (approx. £840) and for seven nights is €6,597 (approx. £5,670. Looking at the current data, bookings are up 18% year on year in April to May, and overall figures on the App indicate that UK visitors have tripled.

Click&Boat has found that the top motivating factors when choosing a boating holiday include:

  • Delicious (and beautiful) destinations: clear waters, sandy beaches and stunning environments combined with vibrant life in harbours, everlasting beach and bar parties all combined with delicious local cuisine. From top restaurants to smaller bistros, people are choosing their next destination based on what they’ll eat.
  • Stable weather with long sunny days: after a turgid and cold winter in the UK, sunny and warm places are calling.
  • Getting to know the locals: travellers want to discover different villages and support the local community when they visit. For example, every town in the Balearics offers a varied atmosphere with locals living distinctive lifestyles.

Top four under the radar spots to visit by boat this summer:

 Es Vedra and Cala Salada, Ibiza: Es Vedra is a small island situated off Ibiza accessible only by boat. This island is rich in wildlife, and it is also the subject of many legends. Most famously, the isle has been associated with the legendary sunken civilisation of Atlantis. Set course for Cala Salada, it’s Click&Boat’s favourite cove in the archipelago.

Sant Elm, Mallorca: Sant Elm is a laid-back fishing port on the southwestern edge of Mallorca that has managed to keep mass tourism away due to its relative remoteness. With the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains as a backdrop and the uninhabited island of Sa Dragonera as the vista, Sant Elm is the gateway to La Isla Dragonera Nature Reserve.

Es Grau, Menorca: This charming authentic fishing village is testament to Menorca’s status as the most unspoilt island in the Balearics. The teal-coloured Mediterranean stays at shin level for about 40 metres out to sea and the tapas here will tantalise the taste buds.

S’Espalmador: The private island of S’Espalmador lies between Ibiza and Formentera and has two houses, a chapel, and is just two square kilometres. Protected and hidden, the small island charms visitors, especially with its small lagoon that mirrors the Caribbean.

Here are two examples of boats available for this summer:

A day’s adventure on board Jeanneau- Cap Camarat  speed boat in Ibiza costs from £630 for up to six people with skipper.

A day’s adventure on board Sailboat Bavaria Cruiser 40s in Palma de Mallorca costs from £902 for up to 11 people with skipper.
