Overview

Majorca is the largest and likewise the best-favoured holiday island of the Balearics, and where sailing is concerned it is also one of the top places in the Mediterranean. If you want to explore the island in a sailing boat, you should start from Palma.

Palma has several marinas with good berths and excellent facilities for those who want to take water and provisions on board.

The beautiful southern coast

Majorca is also an island of delightful contrasts when viewed from the water. While the north-west coast is impressive with its rugged, steep cliffs, the south-eastern coast offers a gently harmonious landscape. On the south coast there are many picturesque bays with good anchorages - the "calas", and if you sail off that coast, you should take the opportunity to visit the enchanting little island of Cabrera. It is a protected nature reserve, and in spring thousands of sea birds gather there.

Diving, snorkelling, fishing

All year round Majorca is an outstanding sailing area with warm temperatures and winds that are never too strong.  The gentleness of the wind means that sailing is also very pleasant for beginners. It is only on the north coast that it easily freshens up from the north or north-west and becomes the famous - or infamous - mistral. Round Palma there are many beautiful bays with clear, deep blue water, which are very inviting for snorkelling, fishing and above all diving, as the underwater world is fantastic.

In the evening you can moor at one of the favourably-priced berths or anchor in the yacht harbour, and then the romantic old town of Palma with its taverns, restaurants and bars awaits skipper and crew. The imposing Le Seu cathedral and fortified Castell de Bellver are also worth seeing.

Excursions to the neighbouring islands

It is easy to sail to the nearby islands of Ibiza and Minorca from Palma. In the summer months Ibiza is a particularly worthwhile destination. On the beaches are the colourful, animated hippy markets, where handmade jewelry, leather goods, bags and the like can be bought. Minorca, Majorca's little sister, is perfect for those who prefer calm and contemplation, for there is no mass tourism there. But the island has little fishing harbours and lovely coves which invite you to sunbathe and laze away the time.
