Let go in the lively Balearics

Part of an island chain spread over miles of open water, Mallorca offers an adventurous blue water sailing holiday for experienced sailors. Take on some exhilarating coastal sailing in the sparkling Balearic Sea. Less experienced sailors can go on short trips between hidden calas, while strong winds make for rewarding longer voyages for more advanced crews.

Just off the south west coast of Mallorca you’ll find the Cabrera Archipelago National Park. This group of protected islands shelters some spectacular underwater meadows where the scuba diving is among the best in the Mediterranean, with groupers, octopi, loggerhead turtles and even dolphins paying the meadows a visit. A spell of exhilarating blue water sailing from the north of Mallorca will guide you to the neighbouring island of Menorca. With great food, beautiful scenery and high-quality sailing on offer, a Balearic Island sailing holiday is about more than just partying. 

Why not discover Mallorca together on our newest Mediterranean flotilla route? Sailing on flotilla from Mallorca gives you the freedom to discover coastal sailing, without the fuss of route planning. It is suitable for sailors with some previous experience, due to a variety of conditions and navigational challenges.
