Sailing around Mallorca is perfect for both shorter and longer periods. The island has a coastline of 581 kilometers and 179 bays and beaches. Surrounding islands are perfect to reach from Mallorca by boat. In addition, you can sail to various good snorkeling spots. Please note that you have to be in possession of a (temporary) sailing license. You can get that at the 'Commandancia de la Marina'.
Mallorca is a very popular holiday destination. This island has something to offer for everyone! There are plenty of beaches, the largest beach Playa de Mallorca being one of them. Besides that, you can visit the many larger and smaller towns and villages that offer a lot of culture, but also many nice restaurants and shopping streets.
