Discover Mallorca from the sea
The beauty of Mallorca can be truly seen from the Mediterranean Sea. With more than 550 kilometres of coastline, it has no shortage of unique and awe-inspiring landscapes. Did you know that there are wild and remote places that can’t be reached in any other way other than by boat?
The island oozes a cosmopolitan vibe, in particular in its capital. It stands out for its turquoise waters, charming villages, tucked away coves, gastronomy and pleasant year-round climate. All of these can be appreciated even more when enjoyed from a boat. The beauty of the Mallorcan coastline never leaves you.
If you’re looking to make the most of it and circumnavigate the island, it’ll take you at least a week. We recommend taking things slowly. You’ll be blown away by the sandy beaches of the Bay of Alcudia, the stunning coves of Levante and the traditional beauty of the fishing villages, such as Portocolom.
What’s more, there’s no shortage of options to sail around by boat. From traditional fishing boats, known as llaüt, to catamarans, yachts, sailing boats and golondrinas. Set sail on this one-of-a-kind adventure!
Boat trips to Mallorca's coves and beaches
There’s nothing tourists like more than getting off at paradisiacal beaches. There are boat trips around Mallorca that can make these dreams come true.
We’ve come up with a list of the main Mallorca coves and swimming areas that we recommend getting to by boat. In fact, a boat trip around Mallorca with the kids always goes down well. Take note:
– Cala Ratjada. One of Mallorca’s paradises. Sailing there is usually easy, even for the inexperienced. However, anchoring isn’t always so simple. Go for a one-of-a-kind dip in its crystal-clear waters!
– Cala de Mondragó. Many anchors for a couple of days in this fine-sand unspoilt cove with shallow waters.
– Cala Figuera. Its rather close to Puerto de Pollensa, just 13.4 km away. It stands out for its U-shape and cliff walls. Santanyí and Cueva del Drach aren’t far away either.
– Playa de Es Carbó. A stone’s throw from the stunning Colonia de Sant Jordi.
– Cala Fornells. Located between Peguera and Santa Ponça, it’s an urbanised cove so it’s not as quiet as the previous ones. This is mainly down to being close to the Santa Ponça Sailing Club.
Sailing around the coast of Mallorca
We recommend two main routes for a boat trip around Mallorca:
– Trip around the entire island. This takes in Palma de Mallorca, Cabrera Island, Porto Petro, Porto Cristo, Cala Ratjada, Alcudia, Sóller and finishes up in Puerto de Mallorca again.
– Trip around the south of the island. Takes in Palma de Mallorca, Portals Vells, Andratx, Cabrera, Es Carbó, Sa Ràpita, Cala Pi and Puerto de Mallorca.
What do you think? If you’re an experienced sailor, you can sail your own boat or rent one out. As this is the case for most of us, there’s no shortage of boat trips in Mallorca within your reach.
