Why should I rent a boat in Mallorca?
Mallorca is an island, and this means that it is surrounded by the sea. The great extension of kilometers of coast of Mallorca (more than 500 km) are an excellent opportunity to enjoy fantastic beaches. The waters of the Balearic Islands are very clean, crystal clear. This is largely due to the presence of Posidonia oceanica grasslands in the Mediterranean Sea around Mallorca. Posidonia filters and oxygenates the water, making it that clean and crystal clear. So it is important to take care of it.
But let’s go back to the initial question.
Renting a boat in Mallorca will allow you to enjoy the fantastic beaches of Mallorca in a different way. More intimate and personal, away from the crowds that we find on some beaches in Mallorca. On board your rental boat, either with or without a captain, you can access privileged places that can only be reached by sea. You can anchor in the middle of small coves and bays and snorkel in an environment of great beauty. If you rent a sailboat or a yacht, you can taste the excellent Mallorcan gastronomy on board, or you can visit one of the fantastic restaurants located on the coast, accessible by sea.
We hope we have answered your question. Why rent a boat in Mallorca? The answer would be that you can live an unforgettable experience.
Where to rent a boat in Mallorca?
As we have already said, the island of Mallorca has more than 500 kilometers of coastline. But where to rent a boat? Where is the best place to rent a boat in Mallorca?
Our advice is that you choose sites with natural attractions, such as small coves, islets, cliffs … Also with cultural attractions, such as old watchtowers, castles and fortresses, lighthouses, small ports, coastal towns … Finally, see if in the area there are special places, such as restaurants that are only accessible by sea, places for diving, etc.
The coast of Mallorca is very different depending on the area of the island where we are. The north coast is led by the Serra de Tramuntana, an impressive 90-kilometer-long mountain range that runs along the entire coast, from Dragonera to Formentor. This mountainous setting makes the north coast of Mallorca full of small and beautiful coves surrounded by high mountains and cliffs. We also find caves, islets, small natural harbors of great beauty, etc. In short, the north coast of Mallorca is one of the best places to rent a boat in Mallorca, thanks to the beauty and variety of its natural landscape.
Some recommended locations to rent on the north coast of Mallorca could be:
Port de Sóller
Located in the middle of the Serra de Tramuntana, this natural port known for centuries is perfect for setting sail, allowing you to sail north (Sa Calobra) or south (Sa Foradada). At MaksyBoats we have established our base in Port de Sóller, considering it the best place on the whole island.
This is one of the most beautiful and traditional ports in Mallorca, and will allow us to visit the island of Sa Dragonera.
Port de Pollença
Located in the extreme north of Mallorca, we can enjoy sailing in Cap de Formentor or Cap des Pinar.
I have never rented a boat, is it complicated?
Well, before answering this question, you have to know that there are several ways to enjoy browsing.
Different options when renting a boat in Mallorca.
Rent a boat without a license and operate it by myself
Although you have never sailed before, we have very easy to operate boats that do not need a sailing license. At MaksyBoats we have inflatable inflatable boats, the safest on the market. These boats are ideal for people who have never sailed before. Before leaving, we give you a short 10-minute masterclass, we explain everything you need to know and we tell you the best places to visit. 99% of our clients return delighted, as you can see on our TripAdvisor page.
Rent a licensed boat and operate it by myself
If you have a sailing license, you can rent bigger and more powerful boats. These boats can sail at high speed and have a greater range, so you can visit even more remote and wild places on the north coast of Mallorca. Being larger, they are also suitable for more people and more comfortable to spend a full day at sea.
Rent a boat with a captain and let him handle it (Charter):
This is a different but highly recommended way to enjoy a day of sailing at sea. You will forget everything and concentrate on enjoying. Our captains know the island better than anyone and know where to take you and your family and friends. In this type of rental, we usually have beautiful sailboats or luxurious yachts, with cabins, bathrooms on board, kitchen, etc. In this way, some boats offer to savor the rich gastronomy of Mallorca on board, make stops to swim and dive in the best places, etc. You can also enjoy sailing, have you ever tried it? It is very different from sailing with a motor, something very special and unique. Can you imagine enjoying a sunset from the sea, aboard a sailboat?
