A stroll in a quaint honey-stone village, a snooze on a poster-worthy beach and sunset aperitivo at a waterside restaurant: a Mallorca yacht charter will see you soak up a week filled with superlative experiences.
And if that's not enough, with dramatic scenery, turquoise seas and reliable, idyllic weather, Mallorca offers unrivalled cruising conditions. Add the island's 300 sunny days a year, chatty and friendly locals, and relaxed ambience, and it's easy to see how unforgettable memories come courtesy of a Mallorca yacht charter.
Day One - Palma
From chic boutiques and stylish galleries to Michelin-star restaurants: you'll find everything you'd expect in a bustling capital city right here in Palma. And if you think this Mediterranean all-star has few surprises up its (summer) sleeve, think again. Whether you stumble upon a fascinating artisan's workshop on a cobbled backstreet or turn a busy corner to find a blissfully peaceful square, Palma surprises and delights its visitors in equal measure.
Day Two - Port d’Andratx
Next, you'll enjoy a scenic cruise to Port d'Andratx, a favourite with 'yachties' from all over the globe. On arrival, you can stretch out on Sant Elm's large sandy beach or hike to the ruins of La Trapa Monastery, a stunning walk that includes a 400-year-old watchtower. If you like your evening aperitivo served alongside a dramatic sunset, head to one of the stylish terraces along the port's promenade. Tim's Bar, at the far end, is our absolute favourite.
Day Three - Sóller
From Port d'Andratx, you'll head to the Port of Sóller, a working fishing village that surrounds an almost perfectly enclosed bay. Hop aboard the retro-style tram to Sóller town for views of citrus-filled gardens and to visit the town's galleries showcasing Picasso and Miró.
Evening drinks are a must in the Port of Sóller. In mid-summer and from the right vantage point, you can see the sun sink into the sea and right between the jaws of the port's two headlands.
Day Four - Pollença
Aside from its picture-perfect looks and mellow beat, pretty Pollença – your next port of call - abounds with history. You can spend the day exploring the town’s ancient ruins and structures, like the Santuari de la Mar de Déu des Puig, a 14th-century nunnery, and Pont Romà, a Roman two-arched bridge. Alternatively, you can while away the hours sipping café con leches along the café-lined port or browsing Pollença's unique boutiques and galleries.
Day Five - Cala Ratjada
From visiting the charming old port with its traditional llaüts (wooden fishing boats) to hiking to Punta de Capdepera and sunbathing on a soft stretch of golden sand: Cala Ratjada offers a kaleidoscope of attractions for the active and chilled-out alike. Cala Agulla and Sa Pedruscada are two of the area's dreamiest beaches. Tranquil Cala Agulla, a Blue Flag beach, is backed by a pine-cloaked conservation area, while Sa Pedruscada's stony cove charms through its tiny fisherman's cottages.
Day Six - Cala D'Or
You'll love Cala d'Or for its pretty coves beaches like Cala Esmeralda and Cala Serena. Aside from evocative names, all coves boast fine sand and ridiculously clear waters which are great for snorkelling! If you prefer your beach experience with no one else around, head to S'Amarador, a natural beach located in the stunning Cala Mondragó nature reserve.
Port Petit is one of the most glamorous marinas in Mallorca and has plenty of waterfront bars for chilled glasses of wine and people-watching.
Day Seven - Cabrera
Those looking for unspoilt nature will love the wilderness of Illa de Cabrera, one of 19 uninhabited islands and islets that makes up the Balearics' only national park. Climb up to the 17th-century fortress for magnificent views of the natural port, the island and the glittering turquoise sea or jump in the tender to visit Cabrera's magical Cova Blava, a sea cave with the most intense shades of blue you'll ever lay eyes on.
