Adventure Boat ride Coast to coast

Discovering the Northeast and cruising its waters is an experience one never forgets. Find tranquility and adventure in its sunsets, beaches and marine life. This trip made me realize how lucky I am to live in such a privileged part of the world that is worth getting to know. Choose your companions well, because this is a trip where you will make memories that last a lifetime.

Soller was a very important port in the past, given its role in the export of its products, above all citrus fruits, to France and other destinations. It flourished and its inhabitants enjoyed a period of wealth.

Explore the Balearic Islands in 3 days

DAY 1

Pollença beach

Port de Pollença

After a long trip, we always recommend spending a night in port to recharge your batteries.
Depending on the time of year, Pollença port may be especially crowded. We recommend calling in advance.

Balearic Islands cala

Cala Figuera

Cala Figuera de Pollença is nestled among lofty cliffs that give way to a small U-shaped beach: this unspoiled cove of sand, pebbles and rocks is located in a natural setting of immense beauty on the northern end of the island of Mallorca. In the heart of the Sierra de Tramontana, you’ll discover a place where there are no services. Here silence and the occasional birdsong reign.

Be careful not to confuse the name Cala Figuera de Pollença with the cove of the same name located in the southern side of the island, in the district of Santanyi.

Cabo Formentor Balearic Islands

Sunset at Cabo de Formentor

The Cabo de Formentor is a magical place 20 kilometers from Pollença. From this cape you can admire the Sierra de Tramuntana in all its splendor and even glimpse the silhouette of the island of Menorca on very clear days. Nothing beats watching the sun go down over the horizon of the sea.

The Mirador de Sa Creueta observation point is very close to the lighthouse, with stunning views of Isla Colomer, an island we highly recommend!

DAY 2

Soller Balearic Islands

Port de Soller

Sailing along the Sierra de Tramontana, we will stop at the port of Soller. Just a few kilometers away is the town of Soller. This beautiful and picturesque town boasts streets and an admirable beauty that simply cannot be missed. It’s port, “el Port de Sóller”, is just a few kilometers away.

From Soller Port you can sail to the nearby Cala Deià, a cove with awe-inspiring cliffs as its backdrop.

Torrent de Pareis Excursion

This impressive gorge, formed by rocky cliffs coming together, up to 200 meters high, gives way to the spectacular turquoise waters of a postcard-perfect cove where you can enjoy wonderful sunsets.

I recommend avoiding the high summer season to beat the crowds.

Sa Calobra Balearic Islands

Night in Sa Calobra

This impressive gorge, formed by rocky cliffs coming together, up to 200 meters high, gives way to the spectacular turquoise waters of a postcard-perfect cove where you can enjoy wonderful sunsets.

I recommend avoiding the high summer season to beat the crowds.

DAY 3

Isla de Tagomago Balearic Islands

Mallorca to Ibiza - Isla de Tagomago

Sail from Mallorca to Ibiza and stop to visit this exclusive private island. The Isla de Tagomago, together with Es Vedrá and Sa Conillera, is one of Ibiza’s most important islets. The island is a 30-minute sail from Formentera. You are free to disembark at Tagomago and drive along the regional highway, as well as along the six-meter strip of coastline, which is publicly owned and open to all visitors.

I recommend staying to catch the sunset, as the island is located to the west of Ibiza.

Snorkeling in Formentera

Snorkeling in Formentera

The crystal clear waters of Formentera, with shades of emerald and turquoise, are sure to impress all who visit. With water temperatures over 22 Cº from June to September, which can even reach 27 Cº in the hottest months of this year, this island makes for an ideal snorkeling stop.

We recommend that you always have snorkeling equipment with you when sailing, at least a diving mask and a snorkel. Flippers can come in very handy, but they aren’t essential.

Es Vedra Ibiza

Formentera - Es Vedra (Ibiza) Sunset in Es Vedra

Almost 400 meters high, this uninhabited rocky limestone island is located 2 km off the west coast of Ibiza, overlooking Cala d’Hort beach. This is a must-see on any visit to Ibiza, and luckily for us there are many observation points to contemplate its splendor.

Sailing instruments may be affected in the vicinity of Es Vedrà. There are legends that say that Es Verdà is the third most magnetic place on earth (after the North Pole and the Bermuda Triangle).
