Mallorca, the largest island in the Balearic archipelago, serves as an ideal yacht charter destination, boasting crystal clear waters, delightful weather, top-notch ports, and picturesque anchorages.
With stunning natural parks and a rich Spanish culture, Mallorca is a haven for exploration. Anchoring in its scenic bays for lunch and sailing with the favorable winds offer unparalleled tranquility, sans the engine noise.

Beyond the lively capital of Palma de Mallorca, charming villages dot the landscape, each preserving its unique story and traditions. Mallorca’s Mediterranean climate, featuring mild winters and warm summers, makes May through October the prime sailing season.
Anchorages in Mallorca generally offer convenient seabeds with good holding in the sand. However, be careful not to drop your anchor in the Posidonia seaweed, as it is protected by law, and doing so can result in a hefty fine.
Most yacht charters in the Balearic Islands typically start and end at Palma, just a 10 km distance from Palma de Mallorca Airport, due to the abundance of charter companies offering a wide range of options.

The total length of the route is about 170 nautical miles.
