A sneak peak of the bays and landmarks we visit by boat.
Sail trip Mallorca is based in Santa Ponca, only 15 min away from Palma de Mallorca and also only 15 minutes from the relaxing sailing day you wish for on your holiday.
Around Palma the bay's are busy and full of tourism. For us it is different, within a short time we have the choice to go to many small coves where with some luck we will be in full privacy to do some snorkling and enjoy the best lunch with the best views!
Here a link to our Points of interest
Nature reserve Islas Malgrats 4hr / 7hr / Sunset
Since 2004 Islas Malgrats was declared a nature reserve, which has had a positive impact on the fauna. Due to the strict regulations only 2 diving clubs are allowed to do diving sessions here. Also snorkling is possible at certain spots where the water is shallow between 2-7 meters deep.
Punta del Toro and Islas del Toro 4hr / 7hr
El Toro or 'the bull' is next to Port Adriano, the most architectural harbour on the island. The area of El Toro has been used in WWII for underground tunnels and canons to protect the entrance of Palma Bay. For more then a decade the area is protected nature reserve and has been chosen by national geographic channel as best diving spot of the meditereanen due to it's fauna and flora. With some luck you go here for snorkling and diving and meet a set of sea horses. Very unique!
Cala Noelia and Cala Fornells 4hr / 7hr / Sunset
Surrounded by pine trees, this charming cove has plenty to offer: a sandy bay and crystalline waters, while rocks dominate on one side. Explore the small hidden beach, which is easily acessable with a SUP board. The underwater conditions of this cove are suitable for anchoring as well as snorkelling.
Cala Blanca 4hr / 7hr / Sunset
The perfect anchorage! Cala Blanca has it's beautifull color because of the white sand, besides that the sand great for holding our anchor. We are completely sheltered for waves and wind unless SE winds. The untouched scenery of the bay makes it even more wondefull. It is the beginning of a proctedd area and often we see the Mallorcan mountain goats strolling the side of the cliffs looking for some snacks.
Cala Marmassen 7 hr
One of our favorites, the colors of the sediments are very attractive and great scenery for a photo shoot.
It goes fast very shallow from 14 meters to only 1 meter, with our big 46foot yacht we can only enter the narrow bay on days with calm winds and waves.
Mostly we are here all by ourselfs besides some snorklers and fishes.
Dragonera Island 7hr
The battle between tourism and preservation, in the 1970's there have been plans to build hotels and resorts on the tiny island. By our opinion luckily the preservationists have won and untill today it is a marvelous refuge for birds, bats, and lots of sealife. The name comes from the fact that the island has the shape of a dragon. Book a boat trip with us and decide for yourself.
