While the Balearic Islands usually ignite thoughts of Formentera or Menorca, Santa Ponsa (also known as Santa Ponça) is a beautiful town in Mallorca that should not go unrecognised. This town lies southwest of the island and is an ideal location for your yacht charter.
There are many factors that influence the final price of your boat rental such as seasonality, the type of boat, the number of people on board, and whether or not you hire a skipper. This being said, we have a wide selection of boats, so you will find your right fit!
In general, a motorboat for 6 people in Santa Ponsa costs around €550 a day throughout the year. A catamaran for 12 people costs approximately €11,000 per week in the low season and €13,300 per week in the high season.
The best time to visit Santa Ponsa is during the summer. Especially during July and August, the weather is at its hottest and driest with an average of 32 degrees Celsius. However, the weather in this city is relatively nice all year round. Therefore, if you want to avoid the peak season of tourists, you can also book a boat rental from April to June and September when it is still nice out.
Thanks to the incredible backdrop of Mallorca, Santa Ponsa lies within the mighty mountains. You’ll find a combination of luxury hotels and resorts with super yachts perched by the harbour. This will make for a delightful yacht charter experience regardless of what you do.
Of course, the most popular activity that comes to mind on a beautiful island is exploring the gorgeous sea shores. There are two main beaches in Santa Ponsa. Playa de Santa Ponsa is the bigger of the two, with a 560-metre coastline. You can come here to enjoy a relaxing day basking in the Spanish sun or enjoying some water sports such as snorkelling or kayaking. The smaller beach is called Caló d’en Pallisser or Playa Pequeña. This is known as a “cala,” and you will find dozens of them around the island. They are tiny, secluded beaches that often times are only accessible by boat.
When searching for boats on our website, you will find the option to rent a boat with or without a skipper. This adds an extra cost to your rental, but it comes with many added benefits. For one, having a professional skipper means that you can enjoy a safe and comfortable journey while they take care of the sailing, docking, and anchoring of the vessel. Moreover, skippers are typically familiar with the waters. Thus, they can take you to the special “calas” around Mallorca, showing you only the best. Finally, a skipper and/or crew can also have the added benefit of catering to your needs, whether this be with cultural knowledge, cooking for you, or cleaning. If you contact the boat owner through our platform, you can organise these customisations for an unforgettable experience.
While there is so much to do and see on your yacht charter in Santa Ponsa, it is also perfectly located for you to visit other nearby destinations. If you want to stick to the island of Mallorca, you can head to other stunning coastal towns such as Port d’Andratx, Palma, or Pollensa. Alternatively, you can explore the turquoise waters of the Balearic Sea by island hopping to Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. Finally, if you can manage to fit a longer boat rental period into your holiday, you can even venture into the Mediterranean Sea and head to Italy!
