    For this new “Golf Special” edition, you will set sail aboard Le Ponant to discover a series of carefully chosen courses.

    Whether you are an experienced or an amateur player, you will be able to tee off in stimulating settings, between authentic villages and breathtaking panoramas.

    Your ship will first stop in the Balearic Islands, an archipelago full of contrasts, sitting atop the clear waters of the Mediterranean. You will discover three of its islands: the festive Ibiza, Mallorca and its history-filled capital and, finally, the unspoiled Minorca.

    Further east, in Sardinia, you will be captivated by the charming medieval city Oristano, surrounded by beautiful beaches.

      Port of call & excursions

      1 May 2019 – Valencia


      Embarkation 01/05/2019 from 16H00 to 17H00 . Departure 01/05/2019 at 00H00 .

      Valencia - the city of Art and Sciences. Two hearts beat in this Spanish city: one is modern, avantgarde and almost futuristic; the other is more provincial, more traditional and nostalgic. Valencia has the temperament of a great Mediterranean city whose wide avenues form a border around the old town. The city has an abundance of architectural styles that coexist harmoniously, but above all it resolutely embraces the 21st Century with the futuristic structures of its Agora congress centre and City of Arts and Sciences, emerging from a crystal blue pool.

      2 May 2019 – Valencia

      2 May 2019 – Valencia

      Arrival 02/05/2019. Departure 02/05/2019 early evening.

      3 May 2019 – Ibiza, Balearic Islands

      3 May 2019 – Ibiza, Balearic Islands

      Arrival 03/05/2019 early morning. Departure 03/05/2019 early evening.

      The emblematic island of the Balearics, “the white island” was a haven for European artistic bohemians from the 1930s and a paradise for hippies in search of authenticity in the 1960s. It has been a giant nightclub for gilded youth since the 1990s. Behind this fiesta economy, Ibiza has managed to preserve the charms of its wild coves and its villages of white fincas with flat roofs that inspired Le Corbusier. The island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its exemplary marine and coastal ecosystems but also thanks to the architectural vestiges of this former stronghold of the Mediterranean economy, from the Phoenicians up to the Renaissance.

      4 May 2019 – Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands

      4 May 2019 – Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands

      Arrival 04/05/2019 early morning. Departure 04/05/2019 late afternoon.

      Palma de Mallorca will reveal its many treasures: idyllic coves, majestic limestone cliffs that plunge into the clear sapphire- and turquoise-coloured waters of the Mediterranean, and vast plains planted with almond trees, olive trees and vineyards. When your ship calls at the capital of the Balearic Islands, take a walk to discover its emblematic monuments, such as its famous cathedral, and amble through its old streets. Here, like a painting, the island’s historical heritage forms a backdrop to the lively and warm cosmopolitan atmosphere of the Mediterranean.  

      5 May 2019 – Mahon, Balearic Islands

      5 May 2019 – Mahon, Balearic Islands

      Arrival 05/05/2019 at night. Departure 05/05/2019 midday.

      You will be welcomed by the colourful houses of Mahon, its narrow streets and pretty squares that appear as you stroll around this richly contrasting city. Mahon reveals its different neighbourhoods, alternating between monuments, villas and white buildings. Discover the Santa Maria church, a building of neo-gothic inspiration, rebuilt in the 18th Century. It is worth a visit to see its monumental organ with more than 3,000 pipes and four keyboards. Around the Carmen church you will find a local market, full of stands selling avarcas, typical Menorcan sandals originally made by peasants. Let yourself fall under the spell of this Mediterranean treasure.

      6 May 2019 – Oristano

      6 May 2019 – Oristano

      Arrival 06/05/2019 early morning. Departure 06/05/2019 early evening.

      This former medieval city is located at the end of a large bay into which the waters of Sardinia’s largest river, the Tirso, flow. This natural lagoon site supports rich biodiversity. On the coast, the Sinis peninsula is a marine protected area. This narrow promontory jutting out into the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean is edged with wild beaches of pink and white quartz. At the far south of the peninsula, in a stunning setting overlooking the sea, stand the vestiges of the Phoenician city of Tharros, constructed on the site of a nuragic village from the Bronze Age.

      7 May 2019▸6 May 2019 – Cagliari, Sardinia

      Cagliari, Sardinia

      Disembarkation 07/05/2019 at 07H00 .

      The capital of Sardinia, Cagliari, like Rome, is built on seven hills. Its Sardinian name means “castle”, in reference to the citadel, its historic centre, which dominates the city. The old ramparts are now pleasant panoramic terraces bordering picturesque streets. The city hosted the Nuragic, Phoenician, Roman and Byzantine civilisations before the rein of the Spanish Hapsburgs and the House of Savoy. The monuments of Cagliari bear the traces of these successive dominations, such as the Bastion of Saint-Rémy or the Sainte-Marie Cathedral. On the sea front, Art Nouveau-style public monuments give way to the Poetto beach, a magnificent stretch of sand that is 8 kilometres long.
