Sa Foradada boat trip, Mallorca

Private Boat trip to Sa Foradada. sailing the north coast of Mallorca from Port de Sóller

In today’s article, we invite you to discover one of the boat routes on the north coast of Mallorca that we make available to our clients. This is the boat excursion that leads us to the iconic Sa Foradada, in the municipality of Deià.

Sa Foradada means “the holed one”, a name that comes from the singular hole located at the end of this rocky peninsula on the north coast of Mallorca.

Although Sa Foradada has been known for decades, over the years it has become a more and more popular destination, which is not surprising given the imposing appearance of the rock.

The usual thing is to visit the viewpoint at the top of the cliffs, next to the Son Marroig estate. Today, however, we suggest you visit Sa Foradada in a different way, and thus get to know her “dark side”.

We prefer (how could it be otherwise) to visit Sa Foradada from the sea, on a beautiful boat trip from Port de Sóller. This will allow us to enjoy a closer, intimate and personal vision, which will allow us to look “face to face” at that imposing “dragon” that sleeps at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana.

In truth, from the top of the cliffs, one is not aware of the greatness of the rocky promontory. Down here, on the other hand, and especially on board an small boat without license that allows us to almost reach out and caress “the dragon”, one feels very small compared to the greatness of nature. It is difficult not to be impressed by the majesty of the iconic rock, Sa Foradada.

In Sa Foradada, in addition, we have the possibility of disembarking on a small jetty and ascending to the exclusive restaurant located at the top of the cliff, overlooking the small bay of Sa Foradada.

In this area you have to be very careful with the sea posidonia that covers the bottom, protected by law and responsible for the crystal clear waters of Mallorca. We will also have to be careful with submerged rocks.

But Sa Foradada is not the only attraction of this boat route, far from it. Along the way, the no less iconic Cala Deià and its restaurant “Ca’s Patró March” await us, frequented by celebrities and where we can taste their rice, fish and seafood in a privileged location.

In addition, along the wonderful boat trip from Port de Sóller, we have the possibility to discover ancient watchtowers, mysterious caves, impressive cliffs, seabeds covered by Posidonia, small hidden coves, large rocks that seem to float in the sea, and many more surprises that are waiting to be revealed by you…

We hope you are all well.

We continue working and we wait for you where always, in Port de Sóller, wishing to see you return with big smiles on your faces. This way we will know, once again, that you have had an unforgettable experience on board our ships. And that we think is the most important thing: those indelible memories in the company of family, friends and loved ones. Memories of a life, in Mallorca.

See you soon!

Vespa ride through the Tramuntana mountains

Mallorca has many incredible places to visit, and not all are accessible by sea. One of the most spectacular areas of the island, without a doubt, are the mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana, which extend along the entire north coast of the island.

In the heart of the mountainous area is the beautiful village of Sóller, in whose harbor, as you know, is the base of MaksyBoats nautical services. And it is here, in Port de Sóller, where you can find the scooter rental office of our friends: Bullimoto.

Almond Blossom in Mallorca

February, the month of the almond trees in bloom in Mallorca

With the arrival of the month of February, the fields of Mallorca undergo a beautiful transformation. The natural spectacle of flowering almond trees transforms the landscape of the island, making it more beautiful if possible. It is the phenomenon known as the “Mallorcan snow”, which today we invite you to discover.

Almond Blossom in Mallorca

Almond tree cultivation is one of the most important in Mallorca, with more than 7 million trees scattered throughout the island. These beautiful trees are scattered throughout the Mallorcan geography, but the central area of Mallorca is surely the most ideal to enjoy its flowering, which anticipates the arrival of spring.

Where to see the almond trees in bloom in Mallorca?

✔️ Serra de Tramuntana. Mountain crops give rise to a beautiful landscape, where the steep mountains of Tramuntana are the backdrop for almond fields.

✔️ In towns like Selva or Caimari, at the border of the Serra de Tramuntana we can also enjoy almond trees.

✔️ Throughout the center of Mallorca, with towns like Bunyola, Santa Maria, Llucmajor, Porreres, Felanitx …

✔️ In the eastern part of Mallorca we find towns such as Son Servera, which every year a festival is celebrated on the occasion of the flowering of almond trees.

To say goodbye to this article, we would like to share with you a video with beautiful images of the almond trees in bloom in Mallorca.

We invite you to enjoy this show, and we take this opportunity to remind you that we will begin the season on April 1st. We wait for you!

Cycling Holidays in Mallorca

But today, we would like to talk to you about a way to discover Mallorca, which is gaining more followers every day. In fact, our island is already known throughout the world for something else: cycling holidays.

Visit Sa Calobra by bike, an amazing experience!

Because, also on roads, Mallorca is a paradise. Our Serra de Tramuntana rushes to the precipice from 1,445 meters of the Puig Major, the highest peak on the island.

Serra de Tramuntana, an incredible mountain range, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, occupies the entire north coast of Mallorca. The Ma-10 road runs from one end to the other, from Andratx to Pollença, on an amazing 112 km route.

A demanding itinerary, of continuous ups and downs, impossible curves and demanding slopes, which will make you sweat the shirt to the fullest. The reward, though, is well worth it.

And… How to fully enjoy bike trips in Mallorca?

Well, there are many companies that are dedicated to renting bicycles on the island. But we would like to recommend you to our Kilómetro Cero friends.

For several reasons: because its establishment is located in Sóller, one of the most beautiful villages in Mallorca, and possibly the best starting point for cycling routes.

Because they offer scheduled rides (almost every day), which you can sign up alone, or with your group of friends. Because happiness is always
older when shared.

Because they have been touring Mallorca by bike for a long time, and they know the best routes.

Because they are professionals, and they will take care that you enjoy, and forget everything else.

Do you still need more reasons?

🌃 El cel prepara secrets murmuris de mandarina. I les riberes del vent esgarrien taronjades. Jo tasto vergers. M'ajec damunt valls encoixinades. Les fulles alcen frescor i aixequen ventalls de gràcia, cortinatges de perfum, cortesies tremolades. L'oratge pinta perfils de caramels dins l'oratge. El cabell se m'ha esbullat i tinc l'ombra capgirada. El sucre de l'aire em fa pessigolles a la cara, amb confitures de flor i xarops d'esgarrifança. Unes cuixes de marquesa em repassen l'espinada. Quan el setí es torna gel, sembla que es faci de flama. El vicari compareix amb un vas de llet glaçada. La suor de les aixelles li travessa la sotana. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #theweekoninstagram #ilovepiques #igersspain #photopills #clikcat #hallazgosemanal #primerolacomunidad #igworldclub #fotonline_es #igersmallorca #igersbalears #loves_balears #estaes_baleares #visitspain #serradetramuntana ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #night_excl #night_shooterz #photonight #nightphotography #ig_nightphotography ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #water_brilliance #water_shots #water_perfection ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #longexposureoftheday #ic_longexpo #longexpoelite #superphoto_longexpo #longexposure_shots #longexpohunter #longexposurephotography ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️

Furrowing the skies of Mallorca

At MaksyBoats we are used to having a different point of view of Mallorca. On board a ship, we are able to enjoy a Majorca that remains hidden for most of the visitors of the island.

Something similar happens to our friend César Canudas, head instructor of Madventure Mallorca. César is a 31 years old mallorcan, settled in Sóller. His father’s love for aviation made him, from a very young age, his biggest dream was to fly. At age 17 he made his first flight, when he discovered that paragliding was the sport he wanted to pursue professionally. During these 12 years of experience, he has not stopped flying, becoming professional and performing several feats.
