Renting a sailing yacht in Majorca to revel in the unparalleled beauty of the island is a popular pastime during the spring break or summer holidays

What’s the best plan for a weeklong sailing holiday?

Getting to know Majorca aboard a sailing yacht is the best way to be in touch with the nature, explore all the quiet spots and anchorages of the island, and escape the beaten path of summer vacationers. Be it for a quiet holiday with your significant other or family, or for an adventure type of vacation, the island is a destination that fits your holiday plans.

Here is our top list of activities to discover the best Majorca has to offer:

  1. Discover the best anchorages and beaches. We recommend exploring the anchorages of Cabo Blanco, Cala Pitomar, Cala Varques and Cala San Vicente, or simply enjoy the beaches of Calas Figuera, Antegora or Mondragó, and swim in the pristine waters bathing the island.

  2. If you enjoy walking, we recommend combining anchoring with walking or hiking. Isla Dragonera is an amazing spot to discover on foot. Simply walk towards Faro Viejo, Faro Tramontana or Mirador de Na Mirada for splendid panoramic views. Besides being one of the oldest settlements on the island, Cala Boquer is an unmissable romantic spot thanks to the ancient Roman ruins of Bocchoris.

  3. Majorca is a great diving and snorkeling spot, and both newbies and experienced divers can enjoy its aquatic splendour directly from a boat all year round. You can also experiment with underwater photography. The submarine scenery of Mallorca is extremely varied and comprises of caves, reefs, archaeological remains and rich marine life. Some well-known diving spots include Tramuntana, Isla de Dragonera, Bahía de Palma, and the north-eastern and eastern parts of the isle.

  4. Experienced divers can also explore marine caves in D’Es Coloms and Ses Llàgrimes.
