Mallorca is considered one of the most popular sailing areas in the Mediterranean - and not without reason. Because the pearl of the Balearic Islands offers sailors fantastic cruises with perfect sailing conditions and unique berths: From busy marinas to dreamy bays, every yachting vacationer will find what his heart desires.
Palma de Mallorca check-in
The sailing trip begins in the Bay of Palma, the "Bahia de Palma", as the Mallorcans call it. Six marinas with over 2000 berths are located in the harbor of the lively island metropolis. Within walking distance of the Old Town, the Yachthaften offers the ideal location for visiting the main shopping areas and attractions of the island's capital, or for getting ready for the upcoming sailing trip. Directly behind the Real Club Náutico is the famous bar district La Llotja, just behind the most prestigious shopping street of the island: Avinguada Jaume.
Palma de Mallorca Sa Rapita 25 sm
On the south coast of Majorca you will reach the small fishing village of Sa Rápita. The modern Marina de Sa Rápita has many guest berths and all important services. The town itself has markets, shops and numerous restaurants serving delicious seafood dishes. Especially recommended are the restaurants in the building of the yacht club. Here you can enjoy the unique view of the dream beach Es Trenc, which starts right at the end of the harbor wall. Es Trenc is considered one of the longest and most beautiful beaches of Mallorca. Protected by nature and thus almost unobstructed, it extends east to Puerto de Campos. Those who prefer to anchor their yacht instead of mooring to the harbor wall of the marina can do so in front of the beach. The water depths here are moderate. As long as no strong thermals occur, the yacht is quiet here and you can enjoy the South Sea feeling while bathing in the sun and in the Mediterranean. A very popular anchorage is located on the eastern beach of Es Trenc at the Isla Gabina.
Sa Rapita Isla de Cabrera 13 sm
A true natural paradise awaits sailors on the Isla de Cabrera. The protected island is located directly in front of the south coast of Majorca and is a popular destination for sailing trips in the Balearic Islands. The reason for this is especially the dreamlike main bay of the island, called Puerto de Cabrera. Before a trip to the island, however, there are a few notes to note: every day only 50 boats and 200 people (in August 300 people) visit the island. Who wants to stay overnight with the yacht, requires a permit, the so-called "Cabrera Permit". During the months of July and August only one night at anchor is possible, in June and September 2 nights. Outside this period yachts can be up to 7 nights in Puerto de Cabrera. A trip to the island is worthwhile, despite all the restrictions. Here you can hike through untouched Mallorcan countryside, optionally with a guided tour to the castle or to the lighthouse at the southern tip. In the evening, a beautiful starry sky stretches across the silence: this moment of your sailing holiday will be remembered for a long time to come.
Isla de Cabrera Porto Cristo 30 sm
Seen from the air, the entrance to Porto Cristo looks like a fishing hook digging into the Mallorcan coast. The port of Porto Cristo is located on a fjord-like estuary. Here you can either moor your yacht at the jetty facilities of the Club Náutico or use the cheaper communal managed berths opposite. To get a place in the marina, you should not be late, because many yachts make a stop here on the way to the north. If you have found a mooring, use the day to explore the typical Spanish fishing village. Numerous restaurants and cafés invite you to linger - on the well-protected beach you can enjoy the day in the sun. Porto Cristo is a great base for trips to the Caves of Drach, the Caves of Drach. The cave entrance to the popular landmark is just minutes from the harbor. The caves can be visited every day from about 10 o'clock to 17 o'clock without appointment. Also concerts take place in the caves. Do not miss this unique sound experience!
Porto Cristo Porto Petro 15 NM
The small, intimate resort of Porto delights visitors with its natural charm and typical Balearic flair. Above all, the natural harbor bay invites many sailors to linger during their charter cruise. Thus, the anchor field incoming to starboard is often heavily visited, so you have to dodge the bay to port. The small marina of Porto Petro is very well maintained, but also a bit more expensive. in the
