DISCOVER THE BEST PORTS OF MALLORCA
Mallorca is internationally known for its beaches, coves and crystal clear waters.
The Mallorcan waters have hosted very famous regattas, such as the Copa del Rey in Palma, Superyachts Cup or the SAR Princesa Sofia.
For all these reasons, Mallorca’s excellent marinas are the ideal starting point for sailing enthusiasts.
The oldest means of communication leading to Mallorca are by sea, which is why the maritime routes of the Balearic Islands have a long tradition. Kings, warriors and merchants arrived to the island by boat, defining the history of Mallorca. Due to the geographical situation, the ports of Mallorca became a strategic point in the routes of the Mediterranean Sea.
Palma was for many centuries the only port in Mallorca, but today there are more than forty marinas in the Balearic Islands.
If to the offer of ports we add the good climate, the favorable conditions for sailing almost all year round and the great offer of culture, gastronomy and leisure in the towns of the island, Mallorca becomes a destination for the nautical star in the Mediterranean.
Many boat owners arrive by plane to Mallorca where their boat awaits them in port to start their next adventure.
SOME OF THE MOST RECOGNIZED PORTS OF MALLORCA:
Palma, the capital of Mallorca, has two main ports; Real Club Náutico de Palma and Club de Mar, recognized among the best locations in the Mediterranean, thanks to their facilities, services and great complementary offer besides being the organizers of regattas and sporting events throughout the year.
