Mallorca has approximately 550km of coastline, while it’s feasible to sail right around the island that’s quite a bit of sailing and may not be the best option, depending on the time you have available.
Of course, if you rent a catamaran in Mallorca with skipper then you’ll find it a lot easier to see the best sights. Our local skippers know the island and surrounding areas exceptionally well, they will show you the places you’ll never find by yourself!
A catamaran is a great choice, you can head out under motor or with sail and you’ll find it is smooth, as well as surprisingly spacious. Thanks to the dual hull design a catamaran is actually faster than most sailboats and has more room than a comparable sized motorboat!
It’ best to give yourself at least a day in Palma, you’ll find it easy to reach as it’s just 20 minutes from the airport and has a bustling harbor. Arriving by air or sea will not be an issue. Palma has a vibrant feel, bustling nightlife, welcoming locals, and an abundance of shops, cafes, and bars. You’ll also find impressive architecture, some dating back to the times of the Romans.
Cruise out of the harbor here and turn north, going up the western coast. You’ll find plenty of caves dotted along the shoreline and a few secluded coves. This shoreline is rocky but has a certain charm. It’s a good idea to go as far as Dragonera, this is a small island just off the west coast of Mallorca and is a designated Natural Park. Here you’ll find dragons and lizards that will allow you to get surprisingly close.
You can then sail back down the coast, heading south to the Cabrera archipelago. This is another National Park. Thanks to a military presence on the island for many years this island remains largely unspoiled. It’s not far from Mallorca although you may need to account for the wind if you’re going under sail. Don’t forget to check out the old fort on this island.
Head back toward Mallorca and enjoy the southern coast, heading to the southeastern coast. This is one of the prettiest parts of the island. You’ll need to check out the beaches of Port de Pollenca, Cala Mondrago, and Cala Llamp. You can also appreciate the mountains rising from the shoreline into the center of the island, it’s an eerie and awe-inspiring sight.
From the eastern side of the island, you can actually cruise across to Menorca and sample a more laid back approach to life. Menorca is reputed to have some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean and offers several delightful towns to enjoy a drink or hear some stories of yesteryear.
It’s worth cruising along the northern coast of Mallorca if you have the time. The weather is generally a little windier but there are hundreds of small bays that provide you with the opportunity to make berth and feel like you’re alone in the world. You’ll find the snorkeling on the northern coast is excellent. Be sure to check out Cala Boquer.
You may also want to stop at Formentor Beach which has an array of first-class restaurants and eateries.
