Mallorca Sailing Yacht Charter Itinerary
Mallorca Sailing Yacht Charter Itinerary
Mallorca, the largest island in the Balearic archipelago, offers all that you could wish for in a yacht charter destination - crystal clear waters, gorgeous weather, world-class ports, beautiful anchorages, stunning natural parks, delicious Spanish food and unique Spanish culture. WIth amazing bays to anchor in for lunch and great winds for sailing, a sailing yacht is a great way to explore this beautiful island for ultimate tranquillity without the noise of an engine.
Day 1: Palma, Cabo Blanco and Es Trenc
Leave Palma port in the southwest direction and run by Cabo Blanco with its stunning cliffs. You can navigate very close to them if the weather is favorable. Shortly after Cape Blanco is the entrance to Cala Pi, if you're not careful you may miss it - enter it and take a nice swim. After Cala Pi, sail the coast of S 'Estanyol and Sa Rápita. Anchor and spend the night in the southeast part of the beach of Es Trenc surrounded by the dark green of the pine woods, near the Colonia de St. Jordi. Enjoy a drink from your deck as you relax on the water after your first exciting day aboard your yacht.
Day 2: Es Trenc, Cabo Salinas and Porto Colom
Weigh anchor in Es Trenc and sail to Cabo Salinas or to head to the National Park of the Archipelago of Cabrera, certainly worth a visit, with its castle crowning the entrance to its natural harbor. When you pass the Cape Salinas, you will be sailing the east coast of Mallorca where you will find numerous coves to anchor and swim. You can enter the Natural Park of Cala Mondragó and anchor in turquoise waters with white sandy bottoms, however, there are often many visitors on land. You can choose any of the bays or ports, but we advise choosing Porto Colom which is the best choice for anchoring in Mallorca.
Day 3: Porto Colom, Porto Cristo and Cala Ratjada
The third day runs along the coast of Porto Cristo. This region is known as Calas de Mallorca -the coast of the coves. In general, the bottom is sandy and provides a firm hold for the anchor and the water is crystal clear. The coves which can be reached by car are packed in summer, however, in the others, you can still find peaceful anchorages. Take a swim and snorkel around the shallows, or use the water toys aboard your yacht! Spend the night in the port of Cala Ratjada, with the calm waters offering a stillness perfect for relaxing.
Day 4: Cala Ratjada to Cala Formentor
The fourth day will be spent sailing through the bays of Alcudia and Pollensa, which usually generate good summer thermal winds. The coasts and beaches of the two bays are great and have many choices for anchoring and swimming, as well as the chance to sit back and bronze yourself in the afternoon sun! We recommend spending the night in Cala Formentor moored to a buoy.
The fifth day you will leave by Cap Formentor - a great place for scuba diving, with much of the local wildlife being able to be spotted here. Navigate through the rugged north coast of Majorca with the Sierra Tramuntana. You should visit Sa Calobra and Torrent de Pareis to reach anchor and spend the night in the Port of Soller, where you could dine on board or in one of the fantastic restaurants in the port.
Day 6: Port de Soller to Port d'Andratx
Sail from Port de Sóller and head southwest while viewing the Sierra de Tramuntana to port. During this journey, you will see Cala Deia, Sa Foradada, Port of Valdemosa, Banyalbufar and Estellencs. All are beautiful spots where you might want to make the time for a great swim. Later, you will enter the channel Dragonera to arrive at the Port of Andratx to spend the night in a sheltered anchorage - one of the nicest in Mallorca.
Day 7: Port d'Andratx to Palma Port
On the seventh day, leave the Port of Andratx towards the city of Palma for disembarkation; but not before visiting the island of Toro and Malgrats, the bay of Santa Ponsa and Playa del Mago. In this bay you can eat at the beach bar that is reachable by your dinghy, serving fresh Spanish dishes. From here, make your way back to Palma Port where you will depart from your yacht, having had a truly memorable holiday!
