Majorca South Coast - 7 Day Sailing Itinerary
Day 1 - Port d’Andratx
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 2 - Sa Rapita
On the south-western coast of Majorca and just next to the long white sandy beach of Es Trenc you’ll find the town of Sa Rapita. It was once a stronghold against pirate attacks as is attested to by the watch tower of ‘Son Duri’, which still stands in the port at the Club Nautic de Sa Rapita. From the 16th to the 19th century this tower was one of a series, which set warning fires along the coast to send the message as far as Palma city to beware of invading pirates. The town itself is fairly un-exploited and has a ‘off the beaten track’ feel. Es Trenc beach, covering over 3km of coastline is the main draw to the area and one of the most beautiful beaches in Majorca.
Day 3 - Cala Figueres
More than anywhere else on Majorca, Cala Figueres retains the atmosphere of a working fishing port. The white washed houses stretch down to the water’s edge and fishermen sit on the quayside fixing their nets. If you plan to arrive early you can often buy some of the catch of the day.
Day 4 - 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.
