Majorca Circumnavigation - 7 Day Sailing Itinerary
Day 1 – Palma
Palma is the main town of Mallorca and is home to one of the largest marinas in Europe. Here you can explore the winding cobbled streets of Palma’s old town and lose yourself in the alleyways where you will find numerous tapas bars, restaurants and cafes hidden in the back streets.
Day 2 – Port d’Andrax
This is one of the prettiest harbours in Majorca which also makes it one of the most popular. On entrance you’ll see large villas climbing up the hillsides which are the first hint at the type of place you’re visiting. You can explore the town of Andratx which is a few miles inland or just stick to the harbour side bars and restaurants.
Day 3 – Soller
Soller is a breath taking horseshoe shaped bay. The bay is well sheltered if you don’t want to go into the marina. We could recommend heading into the charming town to explore the cobbled streets and waterfront.
Day 4 – Pollenca
Located on the north tip of Majorca you’ll find Pollenca. The anchorage is well sheltered, but there is also a marina if you’re looking for some creature comforts. You should also check to see if there are any festivals or fairs happening whilst you’re visiting as they are popular and frequent here.
Day 5 – Cala Ratjada
This small fishing village is popular thanks to its fine white sandy beaches and turquoise seas. There is a lighthouse a short walk away from the beach which offers some fantastic views over to Menorca.
Day 6 – Cala d’Or
Cala d’Or meaning ‘golden bay’ in Spanish, is located on the southeast coast of Mallorca and covers several coves including Cala Ferrera, Cala Esmeralda, Cala Serena, Cala Gran, and Cala Llonga. One of the first major tourist resorts in Mallorca, the buildings here were themed on Ibiza, so you’ll find small, pretty, white-washed villas, apartments and houses lining the cobbled streets. There’s also a wide range of cafés, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.
Day 7 – La Cabrera
The Cabrera National Park is centred around a pristine archipelago situated just 10km off the south coast of Mallorca. The Archipelago is made up of 19 small islands, all uninhabited, except for the largest, which shares its name with the National park itself. Cabrera means ‘Goatherd’ in Spanish and refers to the masses of goats which used to graze here was once home to a notorious prison camp during the Napoleonic wars it then became a military outpost in 1916 and it wasn’t until 1991 when the area was declared Spain’s first Maritime-Terrestrial National Park. Due to its biotic wealth and abundance of diverse bird species, the park has also been declared a Special Protection Area (SPA) for birds. We recommend arranging a hike with the park ranger to explore some of the main sights including the lighthouse and the caves at la Miranda.
