Nine Stunning Reasons to Charter a Luxury Yacht in Mallorca

Mallorca is an island of contrasts and on a luxury charter yacht here you will find fabulous restaurants and a glittering nightlife, as well as peace and tranquility with some of the most beautiful of beaches, imposing mountain cliffs, sprawling vineyards and orange groves, along with traditional fishing villages and historical towns.


Mallorca is one of the Mediterranean's most popular luxury mega yacht charter destinations, thanks to the near-year-round sunshine, azure waters, varied landscapes and warm hospitality. To discover this island with a knowledgeable Captain on a crewed yacht charter is an unrivalled opportunity to really savour this beguiling Spanish isle. 


Here are our highlights of the stunning island that is Mallorca. 


1. Palma de Mallorca

Palma is a very easy place to start and finish a charter but this capital of the Balearic islands is much more. Situated on the south coast of Mallorca and dominated by the Gothic Santa Maria cathedral is a delightful city that we do recommend you spend a little time enjoying. Palma de Mallorca comes as a surprise to many people - it is stylish, sophisticated, intimate, yet bursting with life.

The old quarter with its tiny cobbled streets and characterful buildings is so easy to explore being only a little over one square kilometre and packed with a variety of cafes, restaurants and bars ranging from quirky little cellars serving local delicacies through to internationally renowned 5-star restaurants.

The shopping here is also an eclectic mix but there are a number of areas with stylish boutiques and shoe shops. There is an excellent night life, and yacht clubs, Club de Mar and the Real Club Nautico which hosts various superyacht and sailing regattas all year round. Palma is a marvellous blend of traditional and contemporary, with something for every inclination.


2. Port d'Andraitx

Located on the Southwest corner of Mallorca is a lovely village, Port d'Andraitx, that mixes traditional fishing port with an internationally classed yacht club, Club de Vela, and a string of cosmopolitan bars and restaurants lining the waterfront. There's nothing quite like sipping a cold quiet drink while watching the fisherman at their daily work - sewing nets, landing fish, hauling ice. And the shopping here has a lot to recommend it as well, with a little of everything including some delightful designer clothes and jewelry shops.

3. Port Adriano

Port Adriano is unashamedly devoted to luxury. This up-scale super-yacht port was remodeled by renowned French architect Philippe Starck in 2012 creating one of the most modern marinas in the Mediterranean. Little touches such as bollards and special lighting create an overall effect that oozes charm and sophistication. There are a wide selection of restaurants in Port Adriano offering a superb range of international cuisines. Nautical sports such as paddle surf, fly-board and jet skis are also well catered for and there is a superb golf course nearby.

4. Port Soller

The only village accessible by sea along the rugged west coast of Mallorca Port Soller is a gem nestled in the beautiful surrounding mountain range, the 'Serra de Tramuntana', a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While there are a variety of bars and restaurants this is a much more peaceful place than many of the towns and villages more easily accessible by road. And one should also take the tram up to Soller village. This is an enjoyable ride through the valleys and hills on a piece of history - the same tram with it's polished brass and wood has been travelling this route since 1913. 


5. Port Pollensa

On the North coast is Puerto Pollensa, a typical Mallorcan town with a maze of narrow streets. It is one of the most beautiful harbours on the island and also one of the deepest and most protected. The sheltered horseshoe shaped bay is set against the stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain range, and it is blessed with calm, shallow waters which makes it popular with families. The landscape here is so diverse; steep mountains meet picturesque shores, the green of the pine trees contrasting with grey limestone rocks.


6. Porto Colom

Another attractive small village that has resisted large-scale development Porto Colom is set in a large natural harbour on the east coast of Mallorca. The entrance to the bay is signposted with a picturesque and photogenic lighthouse. Lovely pastel coloured houses line the waterfront along with mostly very traditional bars and restaurants, complemented with a myriad of small fishing boats.


7. Valldemossa

Valldemossa is one of the most charming of villages in Mallorca. It is situation in the hills of the Tramuntana range about 17 km from Palma surrounded by forested hills and lush countryside.  Artists, writers and musicians, including Chopin, have long been attracted here. It is traditional small town with delightful narrow streets and lanes lined with cafes, galleries and gift shops and built out of blonde stone, as are the houses. The doorways and streets are adorned with beautiful green plants and colourful flowers making this one of the prettiest towns in Mallorca. 


8. Deia

Another idyllic village located in the hills of the Tramuntana range Deia boasting green-shuttered, ochre-coloured houses has become a millionaires' hideaway. It is a tiny place with just a few cobbled streets, as well as two high-end hotels and eclectic array of fabulous restaurants. ucked just below the village of Deia is the idyllic Cala Deia. A picture-perfect small shingle bay set in a stunning setting, where the crystal clear waters lap the stones. We recommend lunch at the restaurant that perches in the water there.

9. Cabrera Island

While not on Mallorca we do recommend a short side visit to this lovely little uninhabited island. Cabrera, located off the south east corner of Mallorca, has a unique ecosystem with a range of flora and fauna not found elsewhere. It is also steeped in history dating back to the Napoleonic wars when thousands were imprisoned here. Ashore, as well as some great walks, there is one cafe/bar/restaurant where you will meet local rangers located here over the summer. A permit is required and with enough notice your Captain will be able to organise this.
