The harbours are well-known showpieces of Mallorca. Along the circumference of 550 km, Mallorca has 45 harbours with 15.000 moorings.
More than 500 cruise ships visit Mallorca yearly and the number keeps on growing with 20 % per year, disembarking more than 650 000 passengers
It’s such a beautiful sight from a terrace in the sun or on a warm summer night: all the lights of the boats dancing on the water.
Numerous marinas around the island attract many yachties and tourists to Mallorca. Those who don’t have their own yacht, can at least enjoy the coziness of romantic fishing ports like Cala Figuera and Porto Colom, or admire the magnificent private yachts in ports like Puerto Portals and Puerto Andratx.
There are many companies that charter yachts, sailing boats or motor boats for a day or a week.
Harbour of Palma
The harbor of Palma is located in the middle of the city, just in front of the maze of old streets that make up the Old Town. The waterfront promenade, which stole its location from the sea in the sixties, connects the port from one end to the other.
After dealing with the limitations of space and depth of the water, the harbour of Palma now provides the right facilities for big boats to moor. Throughout the years it has become one of the most important cruise ship harbors of the Mediterranean.
On a daily basis, commercial fishing boats bring fresh fish to the island.
When it comes to recreational navigation, the bay of Palma hosts some of the most important regattas of the Mediterranean sea, including the S.A.R. Princess Sofia Trophy at the end of March and the King’s Cup (Copa del Rey) at the end of July.
There are 2 main luxury marinas in Mallorca. Port Adriano, which is designed by the renowned Philippe Starck who creates the most modern super yacht marinas of the Mediterranean, and Puerto Portals. They are both worldly known because of their classy lifestyle: numerous shops, international restaurants, and luxe naval brands, such as Princess, Yacht Moments, and Sunseeker; all part of the new commercial side of the marina. For a complete high-end experience both ports offer access to different lounging spots, clubs, golf courses and perfect sand beaches.
