Mallorca sits off the coast of Spain and is the largest of the Balearic Islands. It’s a popular destination with a host of things to do. To really complete the experience you should rent a sailboat.
It’s important to note that you need a license to rent a sailboat in Mallorca. However, if you don’t have one you can still rent a boat, you simply need to include a skipper in the rental. Having a skipper means you can enjoy the open sea and you’ll find places that others don’t know about. In short, it makes renting a boat possible.
Of course, if you have a license then simply rent a sailboat in Mallorca and plot your own course.
We recommend exploring Mallorca first, from land and by sea. There are some stunning limestone mountains to see, along with the remains of an array of Roman and Moorish buildings. It’s worth taking a look at the city of Palma, this is a vibrant and surprisingly cosmopolitan city. Don’t forget to take a look at the indoor market, Mercat de Santa Catalina, before visiting the Cala Mayor beach just a short walk away.
There are plenty of restaurants and bars to enjoy but this is also a great spot to rent a sailboat and drift out, along the coastline. Check out Cala Figera, it’s a working fishing port. You can then travel along the coast to Mondrago Natural Park. There is a selection of beaches in this natural park and they are truly some of the finest beaches you’ll find anywhere in the world. There are limited facilities on the beach but then you have a fully stocked sailboat to return to!
It’s also worth looking at Calo des Moro, it’s a secluded beach that you need to hike to but looks stunning from land or sea, and much easier to access by boat. You should also check out Es Pontas where there is a natural arch in the water.
Colonia de Sant Pere is also worth a visit, it’s a beachside town with a backdrop of the mountains, you’ll really appreciate the beauty from the sea, and the sunsets are divine!
The north coast is also excellent for sailing along with plenty of rocky coves and sandy beaches to choose from, giving you the an alternative to the most popular spots like Coll Baix or Cala Boquer.
If you fancy heading out into the wild unknown then set a course for Cabrera, its approximately 45 minutes away, depending on the wind, but it’s a great way to experience the wind in your face and see some different sights. In fact, this is a great spot to do some scuba diving as the sea bed is one of the best conserved on the Spanish coastline. As you cruise around the island you’ll find a number of caves crafted into the coastline by the power of the water. It’s designated as a national park and has a rugged attractiveness that will stay with you forever.
There are three public beaches, an array of coves accessible only by boat, and it’s worth taking a look at Cabrera Castle, although you’ll have to hike up to it and ask for permission first at the Parks Office.
