Around the Balears in 13 Days

Day 1 (Sunday): Sail to Playa de sa Roquetas on the south coast and stay at anchor overnight (15miles).  On the way you pass several nice calas to stay a couple of hours and have a swim. For example Cala Mondrago with its azure blue waters and fine beaches. Playa de sa Roquetas can be busy during the day but at night you are left alone with the sea and the stars above.

Day 2 (Monday): Start early and sail across the Canal de Mallorca to the famous neighbor Ibiza (72 miles) and arrive in Santa Eulalia on the south east cost of Ibiza. Here take a well-earned rest after a day at sea and sample the restaurants.

Day 3 (Tuesday): Today you go to Ibiza town, the capital of Ibiza. The trip is only short, about 7 miles. But after the long day yesterday probably quite welcome. On the way, stop in Cala Llonga for a swim before you jump into the night life. In Ibiza town, there are many marinas to choose from. Try marina de Botafoch. It is a bit outside the centre and more quite. Short walk from here to the night market, night clubs, bars and restaurants.

Day 4 ( Wednesday) : Today, after a bit of a sleep in, sail over to Formentera. The island to the south of Ibiza is a true jewel. Very clear water, white beaches, amazing sunsets. Sail between Ibiza and Isla Espalmador through the Freu Grande. Stay on a buoy in Puerto el Espalmador, which is not a real port. Just a beautiful spot to spend a night. Or carry on just a little more to Playa de Sa Sabina, a long stretch of white sand. Here the sunset will be breathtaking.

Day 5 (Thursday): Sail around Formentera today. Have a stop in Cala Sahona and some lunch before you carry on to Cala Pujols. Named after the little town called Pujol, which transforms into a little Italy every summer. Good restaurants, a market with local goods and good shopping are to be found here

Day 6 (Friday): Sail back through Gran Freu to Ibiza. Today there are two choices, a quite cala or the party capital of Ibiza (25 miles). Make your way along the rugged coast to have a stopover in Cala Llentrisca. From here on to your destination. But what will it be? Cala Basa or Puerto de San Antoni.Cala Basa with its white, sandy beaches, pine woods and beach bars or San Antonio with Café del Mar and Mambo? The choice is yours.

Day 7 (Saturday): Sail along the north coast of Ibiza and see the more rugged side of this island. Many small anchorages invite for a quite lunch and a swim. Our destination today though is Cala Portinax. Find a good anchorage in this protected cala and find the good supermarkets and many restaurants. Get a good rest because tomorrow it is back to Mallorca.

Day 8 ( Sunday): Today sail back to Mallorca (49 miles).  Pass the island of Tagomago, a privately owned island. And once again cross the canal de Mallorca. Our destination is Puerto de Andratx. On the north west coast of Mallorca. The club Nautico is opposite the town, which boast many very fine restaurants and boutiques. This is a good place to rest after this long day

Day 9 (Monday): Sail to Port de Soller. (25 miles). Here the mountains start to rise already. On your way you sail past 1000m high mountains and such famous places as Banalbufar, Valdemosa and Deia. Once in Soller, take the tram into Soller proper and taste some of the almond cake that is famous here.

Day 10 (Tuesday): Sail from Port de Soller to Port de Pollensa (35 miles).Today you sail past the sheer mountain cliffs. Here the mountains rise up to nearly 1400m. You sail past Cala de la Calobra, a quite spectacular cala. You round Cabo de Formentor, the north eastern tip of Mallorca, with its lighthouse 200m up. You sail into the bay of Pollenca, where already the Romans had their base. Port de Pollenca is at the end of the bay. Relax for a change in the pool of the club Nautico and go dine in the restaurant “stay” in the old fish harbor.

Day 11 (Wednesday): It’s time today to meet yet another island of the Balears. Sail East to Ciutadella, Menorca ( ca. 35 miles). Ciutadella is the old capital of Menorca. The british changed the capital in 1700 to Mahon and the larger harbor for its fleet. Ciutadelle is famous for its Caldareta, a sort of fish stew. Worth trying, if your into fish.

Day 12 (Thursday):  Well today it is back to Mallorca, more exact to Port Cristo ( 35 miles). If you arrive in time, visit the famous caves here. The show is quite breattaking. For food, venture a bit further then just the harbour front. Many nice little restaurant can be found a couple street back.

Day 13 (Friday): Is it already the last day? This is the day for just swimming in the nice warm waters and to relax before you come back to Porto Colom, which is only 8 miles away. Sail out of Porto Cristo and sail south to Cala Barca. Spend the day here and swim to the beach or the various caves. Snorkel and see the fish or just nap under the Bimini.

From here to Porto Colom is only an hour and we are looking forward to welcoming you back and hearing about all you’ve seen during your trip around the Balears in 13 days
