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!

Nature reserve Islas Malgrats

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

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.

Cala Blanca

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

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

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.

Cruz del desembarco

The Cross of the Landing of Jaume I is located in Sa Caleta de Santa Ponça and, together with the Chapel of the Sacred Stone, commemorates the VII Centenary of the conquest of Majorca.

The two monuments were inaugurated in September 1929, seven hundred years after the events occurred.

The cross, made by Tomás Vila Mayol (1893-1963), a sculptor who was beginning to stand out and who would later become a prominent figure in sculpture in Mallorca, presents a decoration in reliefs, which narrates the conquest of Mallorca by Jaume I. The speech is organized by panels arranged without chronological order.

The first relief represents Jaume I descending from the ship with his horse after the first victory.

The second relief shows the ships anchored in Santa Ponça and the nobles and commoners disembarking.

The following shows how, after the battle, the King, on his horse, shows the knight Nunyo Sanz the way to the city of Palma.

After this relief, one appears chronologically before the battle, as it narrates how on September 12 a mass was held in the Santa Ponça camp.

The fifth panel presents an inscription.

Sixthly, a battle scene is represented, in which Jaume I points to a Moorish and tells a knight, located next to him, to pursue him. It is observed how the Moorish sticks his spear into the knight's chest, and how he prepares to execute him.

After this panel, we go back to the beginning of the conquest, when the troops were still on the high seas and, before a strong storm, Jaume I appears on his knees, praying to request the arrival of all the ships safe and sound on the island.

Finally, the King is observed, in the foreground, armed with sword and shield on his horse, wounding and killing on the battlefield.

Above the shaft and, as a capital, there is an octagonal piece with niches, in which eight saints are represented: San Juan Bautista, San Jaime, San Sebastián, Santa Catalina Thomás, San Bernardo, San Ramón de Penyafort, the Blessed Ramón Llull and Santa Ponça.

The lobed cross presents on the obverse the figure of Christ Crucified, accompanied, at the ends, by the symbols of the tetramorphs: the bull, the eagle, the angel and the lion, representing the four evangelists: Saint Luke, Saint John, Saint Matthew and Saint Mark. On the back, the Virgen de la Salud is represented on a ship's prow, since it is the image carried by King Jaume I. In the medallions of the arms of the cross on this face, the current shields of the Balearic Government are represented. , of Calvià and of the King.
