Hilltop monasteries and small villages, unforgettable view of the Cap de Formentora, old wineries in the heart of the island – the largest island of the Baleares offers you to enjoy both its coastline and the interior.
Moreover, this destiniation allows you to enjoy various water sports including the most popular ones: scuba diving, Jet skiing, windsurfing, kayaking and many others!
Palma de Mallorca itself, the Balearics’ largest city, is an astonishing historic place whose narrow streets, old villas and mansions and magnificent Gothic cathedral defy the expectations of many visitors.
The northwest coast of the island strikes the imagination with cove beaches, monasteries at Valldemossa and Lluc, and peaks of Sierra de Tramuntana.
The sheltered bays, dramatic coastlines of the West, and the tranquil calas and coves of the East make Mallorca a beautiful spot to spend time on a boat in the Mediterranean sea. The natural nooks and crannies around the coastline of Mallorca are ideal places for dropping anchor in the calm waters of bays and calas dotted around the island. The position of the Balearic islands is such that they create a ‘Mediterranean front’ and so local winds are very favourable for sailing.
