Why confine yourself to the land on a visit to Mallorca? A sailboat will allow you to glide around this fascinating island and explore the hidden coves, as well as appreciate the real beauty of the island. Even the locals will tell you that you’ve got to take to the water to really appreciate Mallorca and the other Balearic Islands.
You can choose a motorboat, but there is something magical about choosing to rent a sailboat in Mallorca with skipper. With a gentle breeze, you can float almost silently with the waves, enjoying nature and the feeling of the wind in your face.
Of course, if you have a sailing license then you don’t have to take a skipper. But, remember, rent a sailboat in Mallorca with skipper and you’re highly likely to see places that you’d never find by yourself.
Situated just off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean, Mallorca has remained a favorite with tourists and keen sailors. You’ll find an island full of life waiting to greet you and a host of attractions.
It’ a good idea to start in Palma, the capital city, you’ll find a cosmopolitan city with a surprisingly chilled atmosphere. If you have the time renting a car and taking the hairpin drive to Sa Calobra is an experience you’ll never forget. The road may twist and turn but the scenery is truly awe-inspiring. Just past Port Sa Calobra, you’ll find the Blue Caves, a host of caves etching into the hillside with deep blue waters lapping against them. It’s fascinating, and something you need to see by boat.
