Within the Balearic Islands of Spain lies the beautiful island of Mallorca. This is the largest island of the archipelago, lying close to its neighbours Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera. With this in mind, you can easily take your boat hire around the island if you have less time or go island hopping if you rent for longer.
With its natural beauty and diverse landscape, Mallorca has established itself as a top tourist destination for national and international travellers. The coastline extends over 500 kilometres and has a mix of rocky cliffs and silky sands. With a boat hire, anyone can explore the island and its hidden beaches to their heart's content.
After exploring Mallorca's wonders, you might also consider a yacht charter in Ibiza to experience another facet of the Balearic Islands' charm.

You have the option of renting boats with or without a skipper or crew. It is recommended to check with the boat owner for details on any supplementary features that may be part of the rental package, such as fuel and water sports.
Mallorca experiences a temperate Mediterranean climate, with long hot summers and mild winters. During July and August, temperatures can reach as high as 40 degrees Celsius, however, the refreshing sea breeze provides a cooling effect during the night which makes the days more comfortable. The most popular time for tourists to visit is definitely during the summer. When the busy crowds become too much, a boat hire gives you the opportunity to find your own space in the open sea.

Mallorca is a magical destination that never ceases to amaze. It is home to magnificent architecture, culture, gastronomy, mountains, and beaches. If you aren’t sure where to begin on your boat hire in Mallorca, let us guide you.
To begin, there are over 250 diverse beaches that you can explore on your holiday. The best part is that you can use your boat hire to go from one to the next until you find the perfect spot! Whether you are searching for a relaxing spot away from the crowds or a buzzing beach with bars and restaurants, you’ll find exactly what you need on this island. Our first recommendation is Cala Barques in Manacor. This little beach is hard to access by car, so its visitors often feel like they are on a private beach. This being said, it is surrounded by gorgeous pine trees that block out the winds and the noise of any nearby disturbances.
Other amazing beaches include Cala Mondrago, Alcudia Beach, and Cala El Mago. All of these beaches house the gorgeous aquamarine waters that the Balearic Islands are known for. What’s more is that the clear waters are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or sailing. If you look closely, you might find stingrays, groupers, or even the loggerhead sea turtle! There is so much to discover on the island that will make for an unforgettable holiday.
When you are ready to disembark from your boat hire and step onto land, Mallorca also has a multitude of activities. To begin, you can visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria in Palma de Mallorca, the capital city of the island. You can also roam around the lovely old town, getting lost in the charming narrow streets. If you want to explore other cities, you can see Santanyi, Andratx, and Pollenca. Every corner of this island gives you a glimpse of paradise, with beautiful architecture and welcoming people. For food lovers, you need to try Mallorcan gastronomy. Stumble into a local restaurant and order Mallorcan-style snails, bread with oil, or rice with rabbit for a delicious meal.
Hiring a professional skipper on board allows you to sit back, relax, and fully enjoy your time on the water without worrying about navigation. Skippers have extensive knowledge of the local waters, ensuring a safe and smooth sailing experience. They can also provide valuable insights about the area, suggesting the best routes, hidden gems, and local attractions. Additionally, a skipper can take care of all the practical aspects, such as mooring, anchoring, and maintaining the boat, freeing you from any responsibilities. On the other hand, hiring a boat without a skipper offers a different set of advantages. It provides the freedom and flexibility to explore at your own pace, create your itinerary, and change plans spontaneously.
