Nautical routes for discovering Majorca by sea
This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)
Majorca is the largest island in the Balearic archipelago. It is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and has a vast variety of landscapes.
A true treasure for every sailor. Take this amazing opportunity to explore the cliffs of the Sierra de la Tramontana, white sandy beaches, unspoilt coves, and the lively south coast.
A truly beautiful experience. Visiting the island from the sea is a unique adventure worth experiencing.
On the island, you will find natural anchorages and a wide range of marinas and moorings that are very well supplied with all kinds of services.
Did you know that one of the most important sailing regattas in the world takes place here? It’s known as the King’s Cup Regatta. A great opportunity to enjoy an authentic, first class nautical atmosphere.
Below, we recommend two great options for you to complete your nautical route. The first, to visit the south, and the second to see the north.
Ready to lift your anchors? We’ll leave the port behind to move to the rhythm of the sea. The breeze will take over our skin. We will feel free, that peace that nature offers us, that connection with ourselves.
We leave from the port of Palma. Our first destination will be Es Trenc – an extensive beach with white sand and crystalline waters. It is bordered by a vast pine forest. The landscape here is flat, making it ideal for observing the limits of the nature surrounding you and the beautiful horizon.
Then, we continue towards Es Caragol, a very quiet cove surrounded by virgin vegetation. We will continue along the east coast of Majorca and arrive at Cala Figuera. Then we’ll continue the trip to the Mondragó natural park.
We’ll move on to Cala Varques – a cove surrounded by pines and with cliffs along its edges. An ideal cove to lie in the sun and forget about all your troubles.
Our next destination will be Isla Cabrera, where you’ll find one of the best anchorages in the Mediterranean. We will pass by the lighthouse, see the castle’s silhouette at the top of the island, along with the beach and its crystal-clear waters. Remember that you have to apply for a sailing permit at the Park.
We leave from Alcudia and head towards Cala Formentor. The paradisaical beach is very close to our initial port. You’ll find yourself surrounded by mountains, woods and pines. Green and leafy vegetation. And the water? A real oasis to cool off.
We will continue on to Cala S´Illot, located very close to the bay of Pollensa. The landscape is mountainous and extremely green. After relaxing a little on deck, we will lift anchors to head for Playa Muro – a long beach with golden sand. The slope is practically non-existent, meaning that you must stay several meters from the coast, allowing you to enjoy the immensity of the sea.
Another incredible route is Alcudía – Sóller, an icon of the Tramuntana mountain range. It is a long route, but ideal for enjoying the sea. A spectacle of nature, with breathtaking views. A great fusion of mountains and sea. You can also take a stroll around the village of Sóller, an authentic Majorcan jewel. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy its typical gastronomy, and to walk through its narrow, old streets.
Majorca awaits you for a real nautical vacation. Connect with the best version of you next to the sea, the mountains and nature.
And remember, every good sailor and captain, plans his route well and does not forget any detail on land.
