  1. Port d’Andratx

Starting your sailing itinerary from Palma – the island’s capital, take your vessel towards Port d’Antrax, a mere 17 nautical miles from Palma. One of the prettiest anchorages in Mallorca, this place is home to numerous Spanish villas a little up the hillside, which the natives inhabit and rent.

The port has a picturesque landscape with vast Mediterranean vegetation.

The evenings can be well-spent in the harbour-side bars or simply by taking barefoot walks by the shore.
