Mallorca itinerary from Palma

Here are the details of the itinerary taken by your sailboat and its crew during your cabin cruise in Palma de Mallorca :

Day 1 - Palma de Mallorca

Plan to arrive early to visit the old town of Palma. Stroll through its cobbled streets and visit one of the most famous Gothic churches in Europe: Palma's cathedral, known as "La Seu", which means "the seat" and probably referred to the Bishop's chair. Soak up the historical atmosphere and charm of Palma before boarding at 6pm. 

Then you will settle on board, and after the safety briefing, we will set sail for a short sail (1h30 max.) to Cala Portals Vells, a beautiful cove with crystal clear waters. 

Dinner and overnight on board.

After lunch we will hoist the sails and sail to Colonia Sant Jordi (15mn - 2h30). Colonia is renowned for its beautiful white sand beaches, including Es Carbo, frequented by the royal family, and Es Trenc, a more secluded beach of about 3 km with golden sand and translucent sea. Swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing on the beach are on the program. In the city, along the Avinguda de la Primavera, you will find many tapas bars and restaurants. We will anchor for the night between the islets Gabina and Redonda.
