Mallorca Sailing Yacht Charter Sailing Itinerary
Mallorca Yacht Charter Sailing Itinerary
Start planning your Mallorca crewed sailing yacht holiday
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 tranquility without the noise of an engine.
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. There are other anchorage areas east of Colonia de St. Jordi, between the isle of Guardis and the isle of Moltona, but one must also beware of the sand banks.
Estimated time: approximately 5 hours.
Weigh anchor in Es Trenc and sail to Cabo Salinas or to head to the National Park of the Archipelago of Cabrera, certainly worth to visit, with its castle crowning the entrance to its natural harbor. If you are in Cabrera, you must bear in mind that you cannot anchor anywhere in the archipelago and moor only in places with bouys. You have to ask for permission at least 3 working days prior to your stay and no more than 20 calendar days in advance.
When you pass the Cape Salinas, you will be sailing the east coast of Mallorca where you 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 such as Porto Petro or Porto Cristo but we advise Porto Colom which is the best choice for anchoring in Mallorca, the only disadvantage of this superb natural harbour is that the water has a rather cloudy appearance, therefore it is not suitable for swimming, but in all other respects it is the perfect spot for anchoring.
Estimated time: 4 hours.
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 one can still find peaceful anchorages. All the coves are open for anchoring, except Cala Murada, which doesn't offer real protection anyway. During this day you will enjoy the many coves in the area and spend the night in the port of Cala Ratjada or some natural harbor in the area.
Estimated time: slightly more than 4 hours.
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. We recommend spending the night in Cala Formentor moored to a buoy.
Estimated time: approximately 5 hours 45 minutes.
The fifth day you will leave by Cap Formentor - a great place for scuba diving. 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 we pick if we had dinner on board or in one of the great restaurants of the port.
Estimated time: 6 1/2 hours.
Sail from Port de Sóller and head southwest while viewing the Sierra de Tramuntana to port. In 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
Estimated time: 5 hours
On the seventh day, leave the Port of Andratx towards the city of Palma where you will finish, but not before visiting the island of Toro and Malgrats, the bay of Santa Ponsa and Playa del Mago. The name of Playa del Mago is said to come from a movie filmed there with the same title, starring Michael Caine and Anthony Quinn. In this bay you can eat at the nice beach bar that is reachable by your dinghy.
Estimated time: 4 hours.
