ONE WEEK BOAT ITINERARY IN MAJORCA WEST SIDE
An itinerary for a sailing holiday on the west coast of Mallorca. A week with departure and return from Pollensa with prevailing winds from the east, to visit the best anchorages, the most beautiful beaches and the most characteristic villages.
POLLENSA – SAN VICENTE – SOLLER – 7 NAVIGATION HOURS
We start from the port of Pollensa with a suggestive sailing around Cap de Formentor, one of the most beautiful panoramas of the island with a stop for a swim in the crystal clear water of Cala San Vicente.
We will then continue to Port de Soller, a picturesque pueblo located within a very well protected gulf that creates a sort of natural port. Here we will spend the night at anchor in front of the town.
SOLLER – SA DRAGONERA – ANDRATX – 5 HOURS OF NAVIGATION
We set sail from the gulf of Port Soller heading south, to visit the wild islet of Sa Dragonera, at the SW tip of Majorca, and stop for lunch on this spectacular stretch of coast, with the slopes of the < em>Sierra de Tramontana behind and the island of Sa Dragonera in front.
In the afternoon we will head to Port Andratx, where we can choose whether to anchor for the night, take a mooring buoy or enter the marina to spend the night.
ANDRAX – CALA PORTALS VELLS – LES ILLETES – PORT OF PALMA – 3 HOURS OF NAVIGATION
Day of swimming and relaxation, we will only have to travel 15 miles to reach the next stage of our journey. This stretch of coast is full of wonderful coves and inlets for a swim such as Cala Portals Vells and Les Illetes, a day with Carolina views between diving, snorkeling and SUP rides .
In the evening we will enter the port of Palma de Mallorca the capital of the island. A vibrant city with an international flavor but which retains a character of Spanish authenticity. An evening between stalls, excellent restaurants and all the joy of the Spanish nightlife awaits us.
PALMA – SANTA PONSA – SANT’ELMO – 4 NAVIGATION HOURS
The great gulf of Palma usually reserves a good land wind to sail in full sail towards the next leg of our journey. We will then drop anchor in front of the Caribbean beach of Santa Ponsa.
We will then continue our itinerary arriving at Sant Elm0, a small coastal village located at the SW end of the island about 5 hours by boat from Sa Calobra. We will spend the night here with the slopes of the Sierra de Tramontana behind us and the island of Sa Dragonera in front.
SANT ELMO – SA CALOBRA – 6 NAVIGATION HOURS
We go up north again in the direction of Sa Calobra, one of the most scenic anchorages in the whole Mediterranean. A deep canyon dug into the granite rock for over 4km that reaches the sea, creating a small beach, between the vertical walls of the cliff about 200m high and emerald water.
We will spend the day here between shore excursions and breathtaking baths. For the night we can return to the peaceful gulf of Port Soller, about an hour away, or stay in this wild and unspoiled place for a night immersed in nature.
SA CALOBRA – CALA FIGUERA – POLLENSA – 6 NAVIGATION HOURS
We have reached the last day of our itinerary. Awakening in the suggestive setting of Sa Calobra and after breakfast and a nice swim we will leave to round Cap de Formentor again and head towards the Gulf of Pollensa.
Along the way we can stop for lunch in the crystal clear waters of Cala Figuera and then continue and spend the last night at anchor near the port of Pollensa.
