7-Day Mallorca Yacht Charter Itinerary

Charter a Luxury Yacht in the Balearic Islands and explore Palma, Port Andratx, Soller, Pollensa, Cala Rajada, Cala d'Or, and Cabrera Isles

A luxury yacht charter to Mallorca presents an enticing opportunity for charter guests seeking a picturesque holiday destination. Mallorca, the largest island in the Balearics, offers stunning coastal landscapes and a vibrant cultural scene.

Mallorca’s allure extends beyond its renowned nightlife, although it’s often compared to Ibiza in that regard. The island offers something for everyone, from families seeking relaxation to couples in search of a romantic retreat and solo travelers eager to explore its diverse attractions.

Exploring Mallorca by sailing yacht allows visitors to experience the island’s beauty from a unique perspective. From charming villages to the historic streets of Palma, Mallorca offers a wide variety of experiences. Whether it’s unwinding in a marina or lounging on a pristine beach, guests can immerse themselves in the island’s stunning scenery.

Culinary enthusiasts will delight in Mallorca’s gastronomic offerings, which blend Spanish and French influences. From traditional tapas to innovative fusion cuisine, there’s no shortage of delicious dining options to explore.

Accessibility to Mallorca is convenient, with Palma airport serving as a major transportation hub. Direct flights from major European cities, as well as connections through Madrid or Barcelona, ensure seamless travel to the island.

Kickstart the vacation of your life with our crewed yacht itineraries and true-blue hospitality as always. The island is an all-year-round tourist spot with 300 sunny days, so there’s never a bad time to plan a Mallorca itinerary. Maybe today is the day?

Is one week enough?

A week is typically enough for a laidback yacht itinerary in Mallorca, but you can customize your vacation according to your preferences and taste. Just make sure you discuss your changes with the captain and also be open to suggestions. All Mallorca yacht charters are tailored according to the sea and weather conditions at the time of sailing.

In our one-week Mallorca itinerary, we start from Palma the capital, and head west. From Port d’Andratx, we head north and circumnavigate the Mallorcan island witnessing the Balearic Sea in all its glory. We also sail to the nearby wilderness of Cabrera before returning to the Palma port for your journey homeward.

Yacht Charter Day 0 – Arrive in Palma

We start our 6-day Mallorca yacht itinerary from Palma. After you enter the capital city, take the day to explore the “cosmopolitan rush” that it offers. Perhaps jumpstart your holiday with brunch at a Michelin-starred restaurant at any of the eight luxurious marinas in the Palma port. (We recommend Il Paradiso near Port Calanova Marina.) Post lunch, head to the bustling city to witness market blocks and quiet neighborhoods as you amble your way to the city center.

The port in Palma de Mallorca is one of the largest and most exquisite in Europe. The waterfront is usually crowded throughout the year, but you’ll find respite as you walk into the town. Quaint, cobbled streets, an imposing gothic cathedral, and numerous alleyways that are great for a post-siesta walk.

Board the skippered yacht post noon at around 4 PM and head to Puerto Andratx.

Yacht Charter Day 1 – Port d’Andratx

Puerto Andratx is just 17 nautical miles from the Palma port, which makes for a brief but scenic sail on day two of your Mallorca yacht charter itinerary. Located on the southwestern tip of Mallorca, the port sits at the base of a family of hills that are lined with plush villas that you can consider for accommodation.

After mooring at the port, you can consider renting one of the villas for an overnight stay, head to a small diner to take in the local gastronomy, or just head inwards to experience the local milieu and the slow lifestyle of the Bahamians.

We also recommend going to the Sant Elm beach and hiking to the ruins of La Trapa Monastery adjacent to an olden watchtower.

Yacht Charter Day 2 – Sóller

Soller is a great spot for the adventurous. Famously pleasant yet a bit rustic, it is a spot worthy of Instagram stories. We recommend leaving the yacht and climbing a trail upward the hills to reach a point of magnificent scenic beauty. A photograph in the backdrop of this landscape is bound to attract unreal amounts of likes and comments on the ‘gram.

Perhaps more lovely pictures will come during your journey on the century-old tram which will take you through orange orchards that are a sight to behold from afar. Also, don’t forget the galleries showcasing Picasso and other renowned European painters.

If you took the hike in Andratx, you may want to sit this one out and take a stroll through the cobbled streets instead. Lots of small restaurants and shops to spend time here and maybe even take a souvenir or two back home. Need to get a few souvenirs for friends and family back home? Soller is the place.

Mooring in Sóller – Things to Do

  • Experience a long hike to the hills
  • Take the 100-year-old tram
  • Eat local delicacies made of sardines
  • Visit the Mercadona Market
  • Spot the Sierra Tramuntana peak

Yacht Charter Day 3 – Pollença

Feels like a lot of hills and climbing in your itinerary so far? Well, a long sail to Pollenca will make things better. Arguably the most beautiful spot in the whole of Mallorca, this northern tip is great for some sunbathing, swimming, and snorkeling. Choose any of the safe anchorages in Pollenca and take in the sun as you swim with corals and exotic marine life.

Pollenca has remarkable historical attractions if you can’t get enough of Mallorcan history. There are ruins of the 14th-century nunnery called Santuari de la Mar de Déu des Puig as well as Pont Romà, a decrepit two-arched bridge. If Soller makes you down glasses of rum, Pollenca is known for its coffee-serving cafes.

This is also a great spot for scuba diving where you can explore rich corals and swim with fish.

Mooring in Pollença – Things to Do

  • Scuba diving, swimming, and snorkeling
  • Visit Cala Clara and Cala Molins
  • Attend the Pollenca Music Festival in July and August
  • Visit Formentor Lighthouse

Yacht Charter Day 4 – Cala Ratjada

A small lighthouse will greet you as you approach this small fishing village on the northeastern side of the Mallorcan island. Spanning several white sand beaches splashing turquoise waters, Cala Ratjada (or Rajada) is similar to Pollensia in a lot of ways.

Spend the day swimming and snorkeling in the aqua-green waters and get rid of the tiredness with some cool cocktails and local delicacies. Head to the Blue Flag Cala Agulla beach or Sa Pedruscada beach to watch the sun go down, and combine it with some nightcap.

Walk to the lighthouse in the evening as it will offer a 360-degree view of the Balearic Sea and the Mallorcan island, which will definitely be recorded as “a vacay moment” of your charter holiday.

Mooring in Cala Ratjada – Things to Do

  • Swimming and snorkeling in the turquoise waters
  • Visit the local lighthouse
  • Hike to mount Punta de Capdepera
  • Spot the llaüts (wooden fishing boats)
  • Visit Cala Agulla and Sa Pedruscada beaches

Yacht Charter Day 5 – Cala d'Or

Cala d’Or offers something to everyone. If you’re adventurous (which you low-key have to be for choosing Mallorca), take the hiking trail through the hills and imposing sea cliffs. Or, get some entertainment across the bars, resorts, and restaurants that dot the roads from the main marina.

Cala d’Or is also famous for its pleasant weather, which stays the same throughout the year. If you like to always be in a pleasant climate, stay at Cala d’Or for a day or two more to experience the cool sea breeze while snacking on your favorite appetizer on the beachfront.

Sailing in Cala D’Or – Things to Know

  • Moor at the Port Petit for a convenient stay

Mooring in Cala D’Or – Things to Do

Yacht Charter Day 6 – Cabrera

Cabrera Island is located to the south of Mallorca and is a little over 2 hours from Cala d’Or. We added this into the itinerary as it is one of the most beautiful places in the world for snorkeling. It is one of the dozen or more uninhabited islands on the Balearic archipelago and is tightly preserved for its marine life. Here you can swim with turtles, different kinds of fish and marine life and fauna, and even spot dolphins.

The island also offers a peek into its history with a 19th-century lighthouse and a defunct military base. After Palma, Cabrera holds the mark of being a historical attraction in Mallorca.

Sailing in Cabrera – Things to Know

  • Isla de Cabrera requires a permit before arrival

Mooring in Cabrera – Things to Do

  • Visit the Castello, a memorial castle
  • Dive under the Cova Blava clove

Yacht Charter Day 7 – Back to Palma

The sail back to Palma port will all be about relaxing. Sip some rum or wine while sunbathing on the yacht before you blend into the luxury resort vibe of Palma. Visit places that you missed when you landed or simply settle for an early dinner by a marina.

If you would like, you can also join a sailing school and take some boating classes. If you’re lucky, you can also view the boat and catamaran shows that happen occasionally in the marina. A truly splendid way to sign off your guided Mallorca yacht itinerary.
