FROM ES CARBÓ TO SA DRAGONERA

The southwest of Mallorca concentrates all the best services for sailors, with excellent harbours such as Port Adriano and anchorages that will allow you to live out your passion for the sea to the full, and conveniently too. You will be able to put in at untouched stretches of sand like Es Trenc or beaches with a great atmosphere like El Mago, and visit unique natural spaces which are therefore protected, such as the islet of Sa Dragonera or the Cabrera archipelago. A host of options for practising sports unfolds between Ses Salines and Port d’Andratx, whether it be hiking, golf or diving. And in the midst of an enormous bay – the setting for important yacht races – you will find the city of Palma, dominated by the silhouette of its Gothic cathedral and offering a broad range of restaurants, shopping areas and recommended outings.
