Fractional boat ownership offers the ideal way to indulge in a luxury yacht at minimal cost and hassle, wherever in the world you want to travel. But when it comes to Mallorca, where are our experts’ tips for the best places to visit?
As the month of May gets underway and the weather finally starts to improve, the thoughts of many turn to holidays and plans to get away. Where better to head to than your own private yacht, moored in an idyllic port on the beautiful and unspoiled island of Mallorca? The Balearic Island’s 555km of coastline offers endless turquoise waters and secluded beaches to explore, and fractional boat ownership of yachts like the stunning Horizon Elegance 85 New Line allows you to do this in ultimate luxury.
But where exactly should you visit? Read on to discover Mallorca’s hidden delights by sea…
Our tip once you have been handed the keys to a boat such as the Horizon Elegance 85 New Line is to head straight to the south-west coast of the island, characterised by large stretches of sandy beaches and coves such as the Bay of Palma. It’s an ideal place from which to swim off the boat in the turquoise waters and is within a gentle walk of the Arenal Yacht Club.
Or, take in a view of the whole city at 14th century Bellver Castle, noted as one of just a few round castles in Europe. Originally built as a royal residence for King James II of Mallorca, the castle successfully resisted two attempted sieges in the Medieval era. It is accessed on foot through the surrounding fragrant pine woods, so step off your yacht and make a day of it in beautiful Palma.
Best for… celebrity spotting
Another recommend spot for those of fractional boat ownership schemes based out of Mallorca is Puerto Portals, home to the famous Roxy’s Beach Club which is a must if you want to do some celebrity spotting this summer.
Best for… tranquillity
For those of you keen to get away from the crowds, we suggest you head to the west coast of the island, which is considerably rockier than the south-west but has some magical remote bays within the nooks and crannies of the cliffs. It is also home to Port de Soller, a wonderful charismatic port with a great atmosphere over the summer months.
Best for… snorkelling
If you are a keen snorkelling fan, why not make your way to the north-west coast of the island, to Cala Boquer, which is only accessible by boat or by foot. The water here is unbelievably clear so ideal for snorkelling, and its remoteness will ensure that you enjoy a moment of complete calm on your sailing holiday.
Best for… history
Other attractions of the west coast of Mallorca include historical sites like the Roman city of ‘Bochoris’ where traces of the ancient town wall and its entrance gates still remain today.
