Yacht charter Mallorca

The largest island of the Balearic Islands is popular with tourists not only because of its party miles, but also because of its combination of picturesque landscapes, dreamy places and historical monuments. The Mediterranean island is also ideal for water sports. With a coastline of 550 km, Mallorca alternates beautiful bays with natural beaches, sharp cliffs and lively marinas. Anchorages are also numerous along the coast.

Excursions into the interior of the island are also worthwhile. Hikers will find an exciting area in the Serra de Tramuntana, for example. The mountains in the north of the island rise to a height of more than 1,000 meters. It has a very specific task: it shields Mallorca from cold winds. Also in the east of the island you sail past the gentle heights of the Serres de Llevant. Here you will also find beautiful grottos hidden in the rocks, which you can visit.

Mallorca and its neighboring islands offer something for every sailor, whether experienced, less experienced, party seeking, interested in culture or nature.

More than Ballermann and party - discover the diversity of the largest Balearic island from our bases.

Most of the marinas of Mallorca are located in the south of the island. The highest mountain range, the Serra de Tramontana, protects this part from north winds, so that quiet anchorages and protected marinas can be found here. The infrastructure is good and the distances are short, so that even less experienced sailors can start a vacation trip here. Experienced sailors can sail around the island and also discover the more natural northwest in calm weather conditions. Here the only protected marina is the natural harbor of Port de Soller, which is about 30 nautical miles from Port Andratx in the south and Port de Pollença in the north. Those who sail with the north wind will cover the miles more swiftly. If you feel like blue water sailing, you can start to the other Balearic Islands: On Menorca, nature lovers and relaxation seekers will find quiet bays and nature parks. On Ibiza , the party continues, and Formentera again offers beautiful corners and beaches to relax and take a deep breath.

In the bay of Palma there are several bases from where you can start your cruise. Ca'n Pastilla is located directly south of the airport. So if you want to get on the water quickly, this is the best starting port. A day trip to Palma is also an option at the beginning or at the end of a yacht charter. If you are looking for a party, just walk along the promenade to Arenal. There is also a port in Palma from where you can depart. The port of Palma, the capital of the island, offers the largest selection of yachts. Stroll through the narrow streets of the old town, stop in one of the many tapas bars and make a detour to the island's landmark, la Seu Cathedral, where Gaudí also left his mark. For those who do not want to miss the proximity of the capital, but want to start in a quieter atmosphere, you can also depart from the suburbs Cas Català or Portal Nous. Palma can be reached comfortably all year round from the major airports in Germany within just under 2 hours.

At a distance from the hustle and bustle on the south coast are the two bases Cala d'Or, the golden bay, and Portocolom in the east of the island. From here you can walk along the white cliff coast Cala to the beautiful small bays and take a break on the sandy beaches. The places here are lively, but not as crowded as in the south. From here you can make a side trip to the beautiful and protected Cabrera Islands south of Mallorca. The two ports are also good starting points for a cruise to Menorca.

In the northeast, you can reach the more natural corners of the island from the bases of Alcudia and Pollença, both located in bays of the same name. Here, fine sandy beaches lie between rocky coasts. They are just as beautiful as those in the south, yet less crowded. Experienced sailors can sail around the beautiful Cape Formentor on the northwest side along the rocky coast in calmer weather and make a trip around the island. Or you can sail straight to the nearest island, Menorca, which also has many more natural corners than the touristy south of Mallorca.

It's also worth taking a look at Mallorca's underground, for example with a trip to the Cuevas del Drach in the east of the island. ©Balate Dorin/AdobeStock


Discoveries on a yacht charter Mallorca

The Cabrera Archipelago

The other side of Mallorca to the popular and party-intensive southwest lies just 30 nautical miles southeast of the island: on the Cabrera Archipelago. Before the "goat island" was nearly stripped bare, it was placed under protection and nature has reclaimed it. Due to visitor restrictions, a permit is required, but the effort is worth it: there are several caves to discover on Cabrera, the most famous being the Cova Blava, the Blue Grotto. You can explore the island on various hiking trails, take a guided tour to the fortress or the lighthouse, immerse yourself in the island's varied history at the museum and archaeological sites, or get to know the native flora of the Balearic Islands at the botanical garden. The coast around the island also invites you to go diving.

A trip to the northwest coast

Relaxation and nature seeking sailors can also discover the more natural side of the island in calm weather conditions on the north coast of Mallorca: a beautiful rocky coast with green slopes without hotels and with fewer tourists. Just a bit further west of the Bay of Palma, off the southwesternmost tip of Mallorca, lies the island of Sa Dragonera. Unlike Cabrera, it can be explored without a permit and is ideal for hiking. Port de Soller is the only port on the northwest coast, a natural harbor in a sheltered bay surrounded by the Tramuntana mountains. To the next port in the north and in the south it is about 30 nautical miles. Cape Formentor, the meeting point of the winds, in the north is also a worth seeing cliff with green slopes, which can be easily explored by hiking. On the other side of the cape is only again the next protected bay with the Port de Pollença.


Especially by boat you have the chance to explore the variety of bays around the island and find your favorite beach, how about the beautiful Calo des Moro? ©el lobo/AdobeStock
