Yacht charter Portal Nous
Situated near Cas Català and Pto. Palma you start your yacht charter Portal Nous in a noble vacation resort on the south coast of Majorca with the port Puerto Portals. In the marina area you will find several good restaurants, dazzling boutiques and pretty cafes. Adjacent to the port is the town's beach, Platja de l'Oratori. Due to a small rocky island in front of it, the water here is particularly calm and also offers small children protected bathing pleasure. The city itself is especially designed for luxury vacationers, in the marina are the noblest yachts and on the streets you will encounter the most unusual car models. See and be seen is the motto here. The nightlife is characterized by extravagance and illustrious parties. In the village of Bendinat, which is directly adjacent to Portal Nous, you can swing your golf club on one of the most outstanding golf courses in the southwest of Mallorca.
Beaches with Caribbean flair and the nature reserve Cabrera
So you can plan your yacht charter Portal Nous completely according to your wishes. The sailing area on the south coast of Majorca is more protected by the mountain ranges and therefore also suitable for sailors with less experience. Experienced sailors can make a circumnavigation around the island to experience different facets of the largest Balearic island. Lovers of blue water sailing can include a crossing to Ibiza or Formentera in their trip and also the Spanish mainland is within reach with Cambrils or Tarragona. The island itself can be circumnavigated on a week's cruise, but with more time on the agenda, boredom is not an option. The northwest coast of Mallorca offers only a sheltered anchorage and you are exposed to the occasional north winds, so a trip here in calm weather conditions and a clockwise circumnavigation is recommended. In total there are 555 km of varied coastline, which can offer a highlight for every preference.
You start on the 160 nautical miles to the southeast and leave the party strongholds in the bay of Palma behind you, from Arenal the development becomes a little less and you go to a somewhat quieter Mallorca. The beach of Es Trenc exudes Caribbean flair with its miles of white beach and turquoise water, and the nearby marina in Colònia de Sant Jordi offers a sheltered anchorage for the night. The island of Cabrera used to be a hideout for pirates, but today it offers shelter to dolphins and sea turtles since the area was placed under conservation in 1991. A visit to the island requires prior permission, which is best obtained before the start of your vacation (we will be happy to help you!). On the southeast coast of the island are now lined up bathing bay to bathing bay. Like the Cala Marcal near Portocolom. Clear water, green gently rolling hills in the hinterland and white beaches lure again and again to short or even longer bathing breaks. The larger bays of Alcudia and Pollensa in the northeast of the island are well developed for tourism. Here it is more crowded at the beaches, but there are good restaurants and old villages in the hinterland. Visit the 14th century monastery Ermita de Nostra Senyora del Puig in Pollensa or the remains of the Roman settlement near Alcudia.
The original northwest of the island
The northernmost tip of the island is the Cap de Formentor. Here the foothills of the Serra Tramuntana drop steeply into the sea up to 300 meters. Study the weather reports and wind forecasts before starting to sail around the Cap, the Cap is known for its gusts. Along the northwest coast you will find the wild and untouched nature of Majorca on your yacht charter Portal Nous. The Sierra Tramuntana stretches along the coast, the mountain range declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO offers a fantastic backdrop of green overgrown steep cliffs, which open up again and again to small bays, such as at Sa Calobra where the Torrent de Pareis opens up a canyon inland. The only protected anchorage on this coastline is the harbor of Port de Sóller, where a trading port was already established in Roman times. In May of each year, the landing of pirates in the harbor is re-enacted here (Es Firó). A spectacular event known beyond the city limits, which is suitable for all ages. The westernmost point of the island is Sant Elm. The original nature of the Tramuntana mountains can be experienced here on one of the many hiking trails far away from the tourist masses. For example, visit the ruins of the Trappist monastery La Trapa and find inner peace. At the most southwestern point lies off the coast the nature reserve Sa Dragonera. Here not only birdwatchers and botanists experience an impressive time. Divers of all experience levels can take guided dives here and explore the underwater world of the Balearic island.
On your way back to the port of departure of your yacht charter Portal Nous you will find nearly 30 nautical miles of well developed and touristic coastline ahead of you. On your to-do list you could still make a trip to the exclusive shopping area of Port d'Andratx, have a good meal in one of the restaurants in Santa Ponsa, an extensive beach day in El Toro or a night out in Magaluf on the Punta Ballena or in the BCM Planet Dance before you return home refreshed and full of unforgettable impressions of Mallorca.
