The Balearic Islands offer dream cruising locations with an unbeatable range of leisure activities and gastronomy.
If you are looking for a quiet destination off the beaten path where you can spend some refreshing time close to the nature, head to Menorca and sail to its most beautiful bays on your luxury charter. Cala Galdana, Cala Macarelleta, da Cala Turqueta, Cala en Calderer, and Cala Pregonda are charming spots enclosed by fragrant Mediterranean bush, where the sky meets the sea.
This is a special place for yacht lovers, where transparent and azure seas mix with the delicious tastes of the local cuisine, the British charm of the administrative capital of Mahon, and the elegance of Ciutadella’s Gothic and Baroque buildings. Recognized as a Unesco “Biosphere Reserve”, Menorca boasts the two-kilometer natural lagoon of the Parc s’Albufera des Grau where sandy dunes alternate with deserted islets, marsh, and olive groves. Cap de Favàtrix is one of the island’s loveliest lighthouses.
The beautiful island of Menorca boasts picturesque coves and bays, stunning mountain scenery and some of the finest gastronomy in the Balearic Islands. Often overlooked by visitors who head to the larger neighbouring island of Mallorca, restaurants in Menorca are just as worthy of praise and are quickly establishing themselves as some of the best restaurants in Spain. Whether it is a delicious spread of tapas, some exquisite fresh seafood or a quick bite in a city square, Menorca has it all…
Mallorca boasts a 550-kilometer long coastline dotted with some of the best and most picturesque beaches of the Mediterranean. Strips of ultra-white sand equipped with all kinds of amenities alternate with secluded coves, and the rocky cliffs of the northern region. This is a great destination for fans of diving, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, and fishing. But Mallorca is also a golf destination. Enthusiasts can choose among several elegant greens that blend perfectly with the scenery, such as Capdepera Golf Club, Son Servera Golf Club and Pula Golf Club.
Palma de Mallorca is the cultural heart of the island. The historic center boasts several clubs and attractions, like La Seu Cathedral, the Pilar Foundation and Joan Miró Foundation that showcases the painter’s masterpieces.
The wonderful thing about Mallorca, one of the four Balearic Islands, is the choice of marinas it offers to superyachts, not only for refit and repair, but for lifestyle – do you want the liveliness and cosmopolitan atmosphere of Palma and Port Adriano or the peacefulness and serenity of Alcudiamar – the choice is yours. Whether you choose Alcudiamar in the north, Port Adriano in the south west or Palma in the centre, you are sure to find something that meets your superyacht needs whether it be a marina, a refit, or yacht services – you will surely find it in one of the Ports of Mallorca.
Cala Deià is a very popular anchorage spot during the high season. With a sandy, seaweed bottom of about 8 metres, it’s the ideal place to moor. The gin-clear waters allow for you to see the seabed easily and choose the best place to drop anchor.
We recommend to take care on windy days, as it does not offer the best protection against the wind.
Marina Port de Mallorca
This eco marina right in the city centre was opened in 2001 and refurbished in 2017. Despite only having to walk through the marina gates to enjoy a world packed with leisure and entertainment, thanks to its 24/7 surveillance privacy and security are guaranteed. Run by a team of experienced professionals, this 200-berth private port has 100% sustainable facilities.
Alcudiamar is in the north of the island, near the Serra de Tramuntana. There are records of the Romans using this port, although then it was known as Pollentia and it was the capital of Mallorca. After the Vandals invaded in the 5th century, a large part of the population left and founded a new city, which they called Pollensa (which for years led to confusion between Pollentia and Pollensa!).
This area is popular for its natural beauty, with a rich fauna, flora and marine life, and one of the most important wetlands of the island, S’Albufera Natural Park.
This well-provided marina has shops, trendy restaurants, its own hotel, dry dock and crane, so it is a great place to moor if you want to enjoy Mallorca’s unspoiled beauty. With the Roman town of Alcudia nearby to explore, a jazz festival, bird watching, an artisan’s market, nearby golf courses, and the ferry port to Menorca and the mainland, make this port unique.
Port Adriano, in the south-west of Palma Bay, is the new kid on the block – it first saw the breath of day in 1999, and its rebirth in 2012 when it was remodelled by the French architect Philippe Starck. Now it is the epitome of nautical / lifestyle / sophistication and is one of the most modern marinas in the Mediterranean.
It is an ideal location for superyachts, with 492 moorings from 6-100 metres, well renowned superyacht support services and with its nautical inspired shopping and commercial centre blending perfectly with its surroundings, makes it the ideal place to enjoy the best money can buy, whether that be designer products from luxury boutiques, a gastronomic experience in a hip restaurant or indeed a new superyacht!
There is always something going on in Port Adriano during the summer months – whether it be SUP (Stand Up Paddle) contests, Sunset Yoga, or concerts, concerts, concerts.
Palma Port is the biggest of the five ports managed by the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands. There are records that it has existed since pre-Muslim times at Porto Pi and there are references to the Old Quay in orders dating from the times of King James I in 1273.
Located in the middle of the city, just in front of the maze of old streets that make up the Old Town, there’s a lot going on – recreational sailing, regattas, cruise ships, commercial docks, commercial fishing, several marinas – but somehow, it all works together. It’s a rare day that there is nothing to be seen afloat in the Bay of Palma, usually there’s something – a huge cruise ship, a container ship, a flotilla of small dinghies from a sailing school, the odd yacht or two. Except from March to August when you will have the pleasure of seeing the bay filled with those competing in the Princess Sophia, Palma Vela and King’s Cup races.
The Port of Palma combines tradition and the latest technology to perfection, and is the physical demonstration of the Mediterranean philosophy, unhurried and calm – yet if you are looking for superyacht services, refit or repair, there is no place better to be, as it offers a very wide range of top class services. Being on the city’s doorstep, it only takes a leisurely stroll before you are in the city centre, with all the delights that it holds – restaurants to cater for everybody’s tastes – from gastronomic experiences to tasty tapas; wine bars, cocktail bars, parks, bike lanes, theatres, statues (living and stone) squares, markets, cinemas, fabulously beautiful old buildings, museums, art galleries
