SO MUCH TO OFFER
Mallorca is a Mediterranean paradise for all lovers of the sea. Our guests come to our island attracted by the warm climate and calm waters perfect for sailing almost all year round. What’s more, the island’s 600-kilometre coastline and the stunning countryside are also packed with an array of options and activities.
The cosmopolitan capital
Palma de Mallorca
One of the most stunning European cities by day and one of the most magical by night, the spectacular and world-famous Bay of Palma casts a special light and captivates everyone who arrives by sea.
Dominated by its majestic cathedral, the city boasts a history full of legends, hidden corners waiting to be discovered, shopping areas to suit all tastes, an array of culture and leisure options, and, above all, a yachting tradition that includes numerous competitions and events related to the sea.
Palma is the most cosmopolitan and multicultural city in the Balearics. It connects to the sea via a long waterfront promenade where you’ll find everything you could ever imagine, such as gyms, restaurants, coffee shops, bars for evening drinks, spas, a fish market, a food market, shops, hotels, parks, and much more. A whole world of entertainment, dining and fun.
THINGS TO DO
Planning your visit to Mallorca?
One of the greatest pleasures while sailing around the Balearic Islands is exploring hidden corners that can’t be reached by land.
It’s a true privilege to swim in crystal-clear waters or to marvel at a gorgeous sunset in a pocket-sized cove with the only sound being the water gently lapping against the hull of your boat.
Nature Park for Anchoring
A little more than an hour’s sail from Palma and ten miles from Colonia de Sant Jordi (Ses Salines) is the Archipelago of Cabrera, declared a Maritime-Terrestrial National Park as it’s home to colonies of marine birds and native species, along with one of the best conserved seabeds on the Mallorcan coastline.
There are more than 450 plant species here and it’s a strategic stopover point on the migratory route of more than 150 bird species. The seabeds also form an important part of the Park, with more than 200 species of fish and countless native invertebrates.
TO SAIL, ANCHOR OR DIVE IN CABRERA, YOU’LL NEED TO REQUEST AUTHORISATION FROM THE NATURE RESERVE OFFICES.
