ONE WEEK BOAT ITINERARY IN MAJORCA ON THE EAST SIDE
An itinerary for a sailing holiday on the east coast of Mallorca. One week with departure and return from Pollensa with prevailing westerly winds, to visit the best anchorages, the most beautiful beaches and the most characteristic villages.
POLLENSA – CAP FORMENTOR – CALA AGULLA – NAVIGATION HOURS 5
We leave from the port of Pollensa heading east. Before hoisting the sails we can stop for the first refreshing swim in one of the many coves of Cap de Formentor, such as the beautiful Platja de Formentor.
We will then continue to Cala Agulla, one of the most beautiful and famous beaches in the North of Mallorca. Inserted in the nature reserve of the Levante peninsula, it is a beach of dunes with crystal clear water. We will spend the night anchored in this natural setting, surrounded by pine trees and hills.
CALA AGULLA- CALA CANYAMEL – PORT COLOM – NAVIGATION HOURS 5
The first stop of the day will be Cala Canyamel where those who want can go ashore to visit the characteristic Coves de Artà. Among the most important in Majorca (450 meters long), they are located on the cliffs of Cap Vermell, about 500 meters from the beach. A visit not to be missed while a tasty lunch is prepared on board.
We then set off again in the afternoon towards Port Colom, one of the most fascinating destinations in this part of the island. A typical Pueblo of fishermen, a calm and peaceful place where you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of a Mallorca of the past.
PORT CABRERA – PORT COLOM – NAVIGATION HOURS 5
Our itinerary takes us today to visit the natural reserve of the Cabrera archipelago. This oasis is one of the best examples of marine life in the whole Mediterranean which has up to 516 different types of animal species, including turtles, dolphins and sperm whales.
Here we can enjoy relaxing on board or participate in the various excursions that take place regularly on the island, or venture independently on the path of about 20 minutes that leads to the ruins of the medieval castle, from which you have panoramic views of the island and the breath-taking sea.
CABRERA – CALA CANYAMELCALA LLOMBARDS/CALA MAGRANER/CALA VARQUES – PORTO CRISTO – NAVIGATION HOURS 5
We leave the Cabrera natural park to return to the east coast of the island of Menorca. In this stretch of coast there are many small coves that hide white beaches with turquoise water. We will look for an anchorage in one of these such as Cala Llombards, Cala Magraner or Cala Varques.
In the evening we will move to Porto Cristo where we will spend the night in the marina and we will be able to visit this pretty tourist resort among narrow streets, stalls and typical products.
PORTO CRISTO – CALA MESQUIDA – ALCUDIA – NAVIGATION HOURS 5
We leave from Porto Cristo to round Capdepera again and return to the northern side of the island. We will be able to stop for lunch in the wild Cala Mesquida. In the afternoon we will head towards Port d’Alcudia, where we will spend the night in port or at anchor, depending on the weather conditions and the preferences of the crew.
A few kilometers from the port is the city of Alcudia, hidden by massive medieval walls. With a network of narrow streets and alleys overlooked by small shops and restaurants, we will discover this suggestive historic center, between the charm of the Moorish influence and an atmosphere of an authentic pirate island.
ALCUDIA – CAP DE MENORCA – POLLENSA – NAVIGATION HOURS 5
We have reached the last day of our itinerary, with another day of sailing on the north coast of Mallorca. There are many possible stops for swimming and relaxation between the Gulf of Alcudia, Cap de Menorca and the Gulf of Pollensa. We can choose to stop on the long white beaches of the two gulfs, or in small and wild coves on Cap de Menorca, such as Platja del Coll Baix.
In the evening we will move to the port of Pollensa where we will spend the night at anchor. We will enter the port for disembarkation the next morning.
