Suggested itinerary for Palma de Mallorca yacht charter

Mallorca + Menorca: 

palma-2Day 1 Palma Guests arrive in Mallorca, are welcomed aboard and enjoy their first evening in the beautiful old town of Palma.

Day 2 After breakfast, a two hour cruise from Palma to “Es Trenc” for lunch on the anchor and a swim in the crystal clear waters. Later the yacht cruises an hour to the Nation Park island of Cabrera where guests dine aboard and enjoy an evening under the stars. In the park there are no hotels, houses, restaurants or cars and so; no lights at night! Your crew will surely make the atmosphere aboard very special on this first night out in the islands.

cala-turquetaDay 3 After a morning dip in the clear waters of the park and breakfast up on the top deck, we set off and cruise up the East coast of Mallorca and across to the island of Menorca. We anchor in any one of the picturesque bays on the South coast, for lunch. There are several very beautiful bays that we visit as we cruise gently East towards Mahon: Cala Turqueta - a beautiful bay on the South Coast with an exquisite white sandy beach and turquoise water, Calas  Macarella and Macarelleta - another fantastic spot on the South coast with white sandy beach, Cala Escorxada - a lunch stop with a pink sandy beach,  Cala Coves - the most picturesque anchorage! Evening in the port of Mahon, one of the most fascinating of these islands with its shops, cafès, clubs and restaurants.

charter-catherine-03Day 4 After a delicious breakfast, set off from Mahon and cruise to the North coast of the island. Pass several rugged headlands and a lot of beautiful scenery, stop for lunch and anchor near Cuidadela (island of Menorca). This is another very pretty, quaint, artisan and historical port but it is much smaller, so it might be difficult to get a berth. It is always an option to anchor near by and get the guests ashore here by dinghy if a berth is not available on the night (advance booking is suggested, especially during the high season).

charter-clovis-45Day 5 Breakfast and set off back to Mallorca. There are less miles to travel today and we are soon in the protected bay of the old Hotel Formentor. It is picturesque and quiet here. The afternoon, lunch, watersports, beach, happy hour and evening meal all flow beautifully together as the sunshine fades to night.

 
 

charter-miss kulani-05Day 6 We set off down Mallorca’s NW coast where the island boasts the most dramatic coastal scenery. This is where the island looks at her best from the sea! The mountains are steep and the sea deep and clear. Anchor in a pretty bay for lunch and e for some watersports before heading in to the Marina Tramuntana in the beautiful Port of Soller. This is a fisherman’s port with a nice atmosphere and lots of little bars and restaurants. An electric tram takes you to the city centre, a little gem.

charter-mx5Pershing-17Day 7  A cruise to “La Foradada” which is the prettiest anchorages on this coast. Stop for lunch and then set off for our trip down the West coast to pass inside Dragonera Island and round toward Andraitx.
