The anchorages on Palma de Mallorca:
Formerly known as Marina Alboran, this anchorage is on the north side of the harbor and consists of four pontoons. It is located on the opposite side of Hotel Mirador and to the west of Real Club Nautico. Although Naviera Balear is mostly frequented by charter boats and booked by charter companies, it is possible to book berths in any of the pontoons here for a quick rest stop.
This anchorage is also close to most tourist sites in and around the port, offering visitors a good way to stop and explore the city of Palma.
Naviera Balear is operated by Sunsail and was built in 2013 to provide chartered services. However, the marina now allows mooring of third-party chartered and skippered yachts.
Mooring at Naviera Balear
This is a busy anchorage and is often fully booked by other charter companies. However, if you are visiting midweek, you can easily get a berth for a day or two. You can book a berth via its official website.
The anchorage is located in the middle of the port’s border, which can make navigating in the harbor slightly tricky. Caution and slow pace are recommended.
Provisioning and Services
Along with essential provisions, the marina also has facilities such as showering booths, toilets, and electricity and fuel stations. Although not as strongly maintained as the other anchorages, you can still find concierge and other routine services right from the marina.
Upon request, transportation to and fro the airport can be arranged. For more information about the port’s services, head to the Sunsail website. The website has details for tourists visiting Mallorca for the first time; it includes details about sightseeing, transportation, public holidays, money exchange, and more.
