The Mallorca Cruising Experience

An example of an actual cruising itinerary for a week’s circumnavigation of Mallorca.

Day 1 – Setting off with full tanks from Pollensa, we cruise round the spectacular Formentor peninsular and down the mountainous north coast to the Port of Soller, stopping on the way to see the amazing mouth of the ‘Torrent de Pareis’ where it reaches the sea through a narrow gorge.
(This was the setting for the Ape’s village in the film ‘Planet of the Apes’). We take a mooring for the night in "Marina Tramuntana" in the natural crescent shaped bay of Soller, arranged by Mallorca Cruising.
(Approx 40nm)

Day 2 – After a relaxing breakfast ashore we set off from Soller and head south towards the old Port of Andraxt, on the way we explore the small picturesque calas of Deia (the famous artist’s village) and Valdemossa, stopping for a swim at anchor behind the "rock with a hole" - Sa Foradada. After passing through the ‘Dragonera channel’ (Dragons Island) we anchor for lunch in San Telm on the south western tip of the island before reaching Andraxt marina at sundown where we spend an evening in the town.
(Approx 30nm)

Day 3 - After a shop in the local market we cruise from Andraxt towards the bay of Palma for a night exploring the city. We call up on channel 9 and Berth for the night in the Real Club Nautic close to the old Cathedral. Later we explore the old quarter with its great variety of tapas restaurants and bars.
(Approx 25nm)

Day 4 – After topping up the tanks and leaving the bustling port of Palma behind us we cross Palma bay towards the South Eastern tip of the island heading for the Cabrera archipelago. This is a national marine reserve and completely protected and unspoilt. Mallorca Cruising booked an overnight mooring for us here, too.

(Approx 35nm)

Day 5 – We leave the tranquillity of Cabrera and cruise up the beautiful East coast stopping in one of the dozens of small Calas for our lunchtime swim. We round the Eastern tip of Capdepera and head for the Port of Alcudia for the evening, mooring in Alcudiamar Marina.
Strolling into town for a look around the night markets we eat in one of the renowned local fish restaurants.
(Approx 50 nm)

day 6 – After a late breakfast, we head out of Alcudia bay and stop in the anchorage of Formentor to take a long lazy lunch at the famous hotels beach restaurant (a fantastic buffet with fresh fish and meat cooked to order)! After a leisurely afternoon swimming or snorkelling in the crystal clear waters we head back to Puerto Pollensa for the last night of our cruise.
(Approx 15nm)

Departure Day – An early breakfast after which we pack and hand back the boat to our management company.

The approximate distance covered for this 6 day cruising itinerary was 200nm.
