Mallorca Sailing Itinerary 

With beautiful beaches, quaint villages, a spectacular mountain range and a cosmopolitan capital city, Mallorca has a little bit of everything or “un poco de todo,” as the locals say.

Our Mallorca Sailing Itinerary will take you all over this magnificent island. From the international city of Palma, to the secluded mountain village of Sóller, you can revel in the natural beauty, ample history, lively ambiance, and one-of-kind culture of Mallorca.

Our Guide to the 

Mallorca Sailing Itinerary 

As the largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is the perfect spot for a Mediterranean getaway. Mallorca’s landscape is diverse and with over 340 miles of coastline, it features some of the most beautiful beaches and coves in the world. However, it’s coastline is made of more than just beaches. Our Mallorca Sailing Itinerary will take you to many of Mallorca’s uniquely charming and picturesque towns, where you can absorb the authentic Mallorcan culture.

If you’d like to become one with nature, there are plenty of opportunities to lose yourself in the scenery. Mallorca is remarkably beautiful and has become a destination for hiking and cycling vacations.

On the other hand, if you just want to soak up the sun from the soft sand beaches, or from the comfort of your boat’s deck, that’s great too. Whatever you like, our Mallorca Sailing Itinerary has something for everyone!

  • Getting There

    Mallorca has one airport, which is the third largest international airport in Spain. With daily flights from the UK and European countries, getting to the island is very easy. For visitors from the US, or elsewhere, it may be easier to get a connecting flight in another one of Spain’s major airports, like Barcelona or Madrid. If you’re looking to take the scenic route, you could even fly into Barcelona or Valencia, and take a 6-hour ferry to Palma.

  • Weather

    One of the best parts of Mallorca is its lovely climate. The island enjoys hot summers and short, mild winters. Besides the temperature, Mallorca enjoys sunshine around 300 days of the year.

    For our Mallorca Sailing Itinerary, the summer months will offer the best sailing conditions. While summer in Mallorca certainly has the best beach weather, you can still enjoy a quality holiday in the spring and autumn – but the weather isn’t quite as predictable as the summer months.

  • Mooring

    The best part of the Mallorca Sailing Itinerary is its abundance of mooring options. As Mallorca remains amongst the top sailing destinations in the Mediterranean, you’ll have your pick of marinas.

    In Andratx, we recommend Club de Vela Marina with 475 berths. You can find their daily rates, here. In Sóller, Marina Tramontana will be your best choice. With just 64 berths, this marina fills up quickly – however, you can book online.

    For another larger marina, we recommend Reial Club Nautic Port de Pollença Marina. Prices begin at €41, and increase by berth. In Cala Ratjada, a small marina – Club Nautico Cala Ratjada Marina – will have everything you need. In Cala d’Or, try Marina Cala d’Or.

    In Cabrera, you must fill out papers for permission to moor in the National Park. You can find more information about those requirements, here. Depending on the berth, rates range between €9 to €77 a day in October through April. From May through September, rates go from €18 to €200
