Sailing Holidays in Mallorca
Mallorca is an ideal destination for a family sailing holiday.
Majorca is everyone's favourite Spanish island and, with direct flights from most UK airports, it's an ideal destination for a family sailing holiday.
Charter a yacht and explore the beautiful coastline of Mallorca. On the eastern shore there are so many secluded bays with white sandy beaches, azure seas and beachside restaurants. In the north, Alcudia and Pollensa provide safe anchorages and the harbours retain their authentic charm. The rugged western shore has abrupt cliffs and Soller is the only harbour.
Plan to spend a night on anchor at the Cabrera Island Nature Reserve off the south coast - a perfect escape from the crowds.
The capital Palma de Mallorca is sophisticated and cosmopolitan. Explore the old town round the Gothic cathedral and find tiny bars serving tapas of cured ham, pungent cheeses, anchovies and big juicy olives.
For yacht charter in Mallorca the skipper must have RYA Day Skipper Practical certificate or RYA ICC qualification.
MOTORYACHT CHARTER IN MALLORCA: We offer an excellent range of flybridge motoryachts and sports cruisers for bareboat charter in Mallorca, giving easy access to the beautiful bays around the island.
Sailing in Mallorca
With over 200 miles of stunning coastline and cruising itineraries to suit most sailors, Majorca is a great choice for a bareboat yacht charter. Families and less experienced crews can enjoy a relaxed sailing holiday visiting the many sheltered bays on the east coast.
Keen sailors can plan a more ambitious itinerary around the island including the dramatic west coast with stunning cliffs and the beautiful bays in the north. Visit the busy fishing harbours of Andratx, Soller and Pollensa.
In 2 weeks experienced sailers can sail to Ibiza and Formentera, 45 miles to the south or Menorca, 27 miles to the north-east, with its busy harbourfront and quiet anchorages. The passages between the Balearic islands can be more exposed so are for more experienced skippers only.
DAY 1 : Embark at the marina in Palma. In the afternoon sail to Puerto Andraitx (17nm)

Marinas in Majorca can be pricey - expect to pay £40-80/night depending on location and the size of your yacht - but you can also anchor in the protected bays. Experience level 1-3 depending on itinerary.
