There is consistent sunshine in the Balearic Islands, which is why Mallorca is a popular destination for those who enjoy a one or two-week charter experience under the perfect climate. Palma is the capital and largest city of Mallorca. The architecture in Palma is definitely striking, and hence, various buildings, including the Catedral-Basílica de Santa María, the Castle of Bellver, and the Royal Palace of La Almudaina, must be explored. While such buildings definitely offer great opportunities to click stunning pictures, they also hold historical value, ranging from the Moors to the modern-day. Moreover, there are lines of palm trees in the town and harbour, and any visit during Spring or summer is met with great sunshine. King Jaume I was provoked by the plundering of Catalan boats by Mallorcan Moors to overthrow the island. During the year 1229’s end, 15,000 men began to sail on 155 ships with 500 horses from Salou in Tarragona. This new kingdom was divided among the monarch's two sons, and Mallorca was acquired by his younger son Jaume. However, he only ruled Mallorca for a brief period. From 1276 to 1344, the island was an independent kingdom, and according to historians, it was its 'Golden Age'. During Jaume’s reign, the island saw a boost in agriculture, industry, and navigation. With a boat rental trip in Mallorca, you can navigate the Mediterranean Sea with routes that were most certainly important to many seafarers in Spain, take your time and create your own worth-telling story with your private group.
In order to enjoy the scenic views of the Mallorca coastline, we recommend hiring a motorboat. When exploring the coastline of Mallorca, it is imperative to encounter Porto Christo, Cala Rajada, and Alcudia. These regions are ideal pit-stops for those looking for a two-day charter experience. Moreover, one advantage of Porto Cristo is that it is not affected by mass tourism, so you can enjoy a calm holiday without dealing with any hassles. The Cabrera Archipelago National Park, situated on the Western coast, is popular for offering good food and shelter, apart from amazing scenic views. Moreover, this place is popular among tourists for offering scuba diving wherein one can enjoy underwater meadows and several sailboats and catamarans anchor here. People have often witnessed groupers, octopus, loggerhead turtles, and even dolphins during their adventures.
If you are here to enjoy this region for a week, the neighboring island of Menorca is another great option. If you are someone looking to enjoy a day charter in Palma, find Cala D’or to relax in its renowned white sandy beaches. Far West of Mallorca is situated the dramatic Cala en Basset, which is a rocky cove that is perfect for snorkeling enthusiasts. In the past, pirates used this region as a strategic point. If you are sailing in Mallorca, you must check out Cabrera, Mahon, Fornells, Ciutadella, Porto Colom, and Es Carbo. Among all the Spanish coastlines, Cabrera is considered to be the most highly preserved marine region and almost feels as though it is one’s own private oasis, and hence, it is the perfect getaway for people looking for some quiet time. To bask in amazing views of the park, we recommend hiking up to the lighthouse. Walk and take in the historic aura of Castillo de Cabrera or just kick back and relax in the waters of Spain. If you decide to visit Mahon, you will find yourself among terracotta colored houses, which build up Minorca's capital city. Tourists can enjoy various activities in this city, ranging from exploring a historic fort, several museums, and galleries to watching a gin factory manufacture alcohol! Before consuming scrumptious items in a port-side bar or a restaurant, walk through the various buzzing streets.
Sailing around the island of Menorca, beyond the Parque Natural de s’Albufera des Grau, will help you find the village of Fornells. The port is made up of whitewashed buildings, which are a glaring contrast to the deep blue ocean that it is adjacent to. This place has several cafes and shops to keep tourists occupied and happy. Ciutadella is especially known for its fiesta-style nightlife. On the other hand, Palacio Salort is surrounded by glorious Italian architecture. As Ciutadella is a busy town residing beside gorgeous beaches, it appeals to various types of individuals. You can even enjoy a long, relaxing sail if you are going to Porto Colom on the mainland of Palma. This place is popular for the delicious seafood that it offers, as well as the famous Plá I Levant wines that can be traced back to the Roman Empire. If you love food and wine, this place is a must-visit. Before you move back to Palma de Mallorca, one last stop you must make is at the beach of Es Carbo. Make sure that you make the most of the warm sun on one of Spain’s white-sand beaches, or better yet- take a dip or snorkel in the water with your catamaran. This itinerary is a great template one can use for their yacht charter trip in Mallorca. Another alternative is to visit Ibiza and Formentera, which are perfect for those who enjoy nature as well as sailing.
