Nautical tourism is a key sector in Mallorca



The Mallorcan coast is one of the most precious treasures in the Mediterranean. The different coastal environments (cliffs, small coves and long sand beaches) are a true delight for the senses. Mallorca’s calm sea does not only offer wonderful landscape images but also thousands of possibilities for sea lovers.

Therefore it is hardly surprising that nautical enthusiasts mark the date of their next visit to Mallorca as a priority on their calendars. Because Mallorca is without doubt one of the places with the most extensive offer and international prestige in the nautical world.

Nautical tourism is a key sector in Mallorca. In the past years it has experienced a spectacular growth, resulting in a constant improvement of the nautical infrastructure and facilities. This makes the island’s harbours, berths and marinas top quality facilities. They rank in a well-deserved, prime position in the international scene.

At present Mallorca has 42 marinas along its coast. This allows you to sail around the island at ease. The comfort and safety of always having a nearby port within reach is reassuring. In addition this brings the comfort of the availability of all the services at each port.

Each harbour or marina has its own characteristics (number of berths, crane, surveillance, harbourmaster’s office, fuel service, etc). However, all ports share a common commitment to sustainability; hence most of the ports and marinas on the island meet the existing environmental legislation and are more and more committed to sustainable development. This makes those who promote the effort to protect the environment and the seabed proud. Because the number of blue flags flying on our coast is increasing.

Moreover, Mallorca has several marine reserves such as the Palma Bay marine reserve including the areas of Cala Blava, Santa Marta, Maioris and Son Verí; the Migjorn marine reserve including the areas of Cala Figuera, Colònia de Sant Jordi, Marquès de Palmer and s’Estanyol; the Illa del Toro marine reserve; the Illes Malgrats marine reserve; the Llevant marine reserve and the Cala Rajada marine reserve of national coverage.

One of the harbours with highest capacity and traffic is the Port of Palma. It has 1,217 berths. The combination of commercial shipping, sailing (Palma Bay is the scene of some of the most important regattas in the Mediterranean), the arrival and departure of passengers and fishing is an example of perfect harmony between tradition and modernity. Puerto Portals and the Real Club Náutico de Palma are also important. The latter has 996 berths and top-class services. In 1998 it was named the best marina in Spain. Port de Sóller, Port d’Andratx, port of Cala Rajada, Port de Pollença, Portocolom… all these harbours offer, without exception, a whole range of services for the comfort of their users. They all reflect the charm of the traditional fishing port.

To these factors we should add the excellent geographical location of our island, which gives Mallorca a mild, stable weather. The top international sailing teams choose Mallorca for their winter training because of these weather conditions. Furthermore, in Mallorca you will find areas for winter storage and great professionals working in the maintenance and the repair of boats.
