ITINERARY

DAY 1: Palma de Mallorca to Puerto Andratx (17 nautical miles): From the marina in Palma, it’s a relatively brief journey to Puerto Andratx, located on the southwestern tip of Mallorca. The harbor sits at the base of steep and scenic hills, sprinkled with enchanting villas. Revel in the bars and restaurants along the harbor, or explore deeper inland to the quaint little town of Andratx.

DAY 2: Puerto Andratx to Puerto Soller (25 nautical miles): Puerto Soller sits in the arms of a gorgeous, natural horseshoe bay and is the jewel of the island’s west coast. This town is more rustic and artsy than other Mallorca destinations, with delightful cobbled streets and small restaurants and bars. If you’re in the mood to explore, an old-fashioned tram climbs the hills from the port to the historic town of Soller, offering amazing panoramic views of island and sea.

DAY 3: Puerto Soller to Puerto Pollensa (35 nautical miles): Perched on the rugged north coast of the island, Puerto Pollensa is surrounded by dozens of picturesque, sheltered anchorages that are perfect for swimming, diving, snorkeling, and relaxing. This area is one of the most naturally beautiful on the island and filled with opportunities to enjoy fun & sun activities.

DAY 4: Puerto Pollensa to Cala Rajada (25 nautical miles): Curving around now to the northeastern tip of the island, Cala Rajada is a small, traditional fishing village that is home to gorgeous white sand beaches and amazing turquoise seas that are perfect for snorkeling and swimming. The local lighthouse is an attraction all its own and offers dramatic views in all directions. Play and relax in ultimate style!

DAY 5: Cala Rajada to Cala d’Or (18 nautical miles): Swinging gradually to the southeast side of the island, Cala d’Or is famous for having the best weather in all of Mallorca. Warm breezes and white sand beaches beckon you to relax, and the numerous five-star resorts, restaurants, and entertainment options provide endless opportunities to sample the delights of the island. You can also explore inland, to hike among wooded hills and dramatic sea cliffs.

DAY 6: Cala d’Or to Cabrera Island (30 nautical miles): Cabrera Island is a short sail south of Mallorca and is a protected nature reserve. The natural bay is one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful snorkeling destinations, with plentiful turtles, fish, dolphins, marine life, and birds to amaze you. The island also has several historic attractions, including a Napoleonic-era military base and 19th-century lighthouse.

DAY 7: Cabrera Island to Palma (35 nautical miles): Back to luxurious Palma de Mallorca, the crown jewel of the island and one of the world’s premier luxury resort destinations. Bars, clubs, fine dining, and more – Palma has something for everyone and is a wonderful way to tie a ribbon on your glorious yacht charter Mallorca holiday!
