Boasting numerous coves and moorings awaiting to be discovered, Mallorca is by far the most popular destination among Mediterranean seafarers. Planning a yacht charter holiday to explore its charming anchorages, natural bays and colourful villages is the best choice for those who seek an intimate adventure with the sea, the sun and the wind of the Mediterranean.
Mallorca is the ideal holiday setting thanks to its 500 km of coastline of sandy beaches, breath-taking cliffs and deep turquoise waters that are tranquil and hardly troubled by tides and currents. To make the most of Mallorca’s renowned tramontana wind, we recommend sailing around the island counter clockwise. As usual, one needs to pay careful attention to the weather forecast to ensure the mooring you choose is safe and protects you from the wind and waves.
If your idea is to circumnavigate the island, we recommend you plan for a two-week boat charter in Mallorca and set some time to discover the inland. If you pick up your sailboat in the port of Palma, set sail towards south-east, towards Cape Blanco and Es Trenc beach, famed to be the most charming beach in the Balearic Islands. If you’re tempted to pass through the amazing Natural Reserve of Cabrera, make sure you request a boat permit for crossing and mooring. From Cabrera onwards explore the area of Migjorn with plenty of choices for anchoring, followed by Es Caragol, Cala Llombards, Cala Mitjana up to Port Colom, the largest natural bay of Mallorca and a precious village boasting typical Majorcan architecture.
We recommend you anchor in the bay of Palma de Mallorca and set foot on the island to enjoy the best sailing events organised here: the Copa del Rey yacht race takes place in July, and Reina Sofia Trophy is held during the Easter break.
