Welcome to the beautiful capital city of the Balearic islands, Spain! People from all over the world come to visit this piece of Mediterranean bliss and its famous sister, the party island of Ibiza. If you’re looking for things to do in Palma de Mallorca, Spain - besides getting on a boat party in Ibiza - our local team of sailing enthusiasts suggests a trip to Port de Soller, to the Caves of Drach, or to the natural park on Dragonera island, just off the west coast of Mallorca.
La Lonja Marina, Palma de Mallorca
Marina Naviera Balear
Beautiful mountains meet the most perfect blue Mediterranean sea - this the welcoming view that you’ll get upon arrival in the harbor of Port Soller, Mallorca. A short boat ride from Palma and you’ll discover a charming promenade with traditional cafes and a vintage tram to give you a ride around the town. Hop back on your boat, go sailing along the coast and enjoy the view of Tramuntana mountains as well as the many hidden coves that are perfect for snorkeling or diving.
Locals as well as tourists will tell you the same thing - don’t leave the island before visiting the Caves of Drach, Mallorca. Drop your anchor at one of the marinas in Porto Cristo, a little over one mile from the caves. Hidden inside the caves you’ll find one of the largest underground lakes in the world - Lake Martel. Enjoy the classical music concert which has been a feature in the caves tour since 1935. You can even take a short boat trip across the lake!
A short boat ride off the west coast of Mallorca will give you the chance to enjoy the little island of Dragonera. If you want to get away from the big island life, then this is the perfect spot to have a relaxed day in the middle of the nature. Dock your boat in the natural port of Cala Lladó and just chill. Great spot for a picnic, too!
Many of our sailing friends go to Balearic islands exclusively for the parties in Ibiza. While there are many other things to do in Palma de Mallorca, renting your boat and going to Ibiza is a great experience we guarantee you will hardly forget. You can hop on your Sailo boat in Palma and sail to Ibiza (70 miles, around 10 hours) or fly to the party island and rent your party boat there. Either way, Ibiza will give you memories for a lifetime.
