Discover now the TOP 10 beaches to visit by boat rental in Mallorca this summer!
1. Es Trenc
Probably Mallorca's most popular beach and ofter ranked within the top 10 beaches around the world, Es Trenc is Mallorca's response to the Caribbean. Kilometers of white sand and every shade of blue you can think of is what will await you here. Best to experienced by boat, as during main season the car parking can get very busy.
The beach usually remains tranquil thanks to its very laid back vibes and relaxing atmosphere. Swim from your boat rental to the beach and spoil yourself with a Paella in one of the few beach restaurants at Es Trenc. We recommend you to book your table in advance and don't forget to take snorkel gear!
2. Cala Varques
Mallorca's number one hippie beach has established itself to one of the most famous beaches in the past few years. Its open bay and deep waters make this place a real paradise for boaties! Just behind the beach there is a second cala with a hidden cave. When the sea is flat jump into the water and swim inside the cave.
There you will find an underwater tunnel that will take you to another, even bigger cave. It you are able to hold your breath long enough you should definitely give it a try - this truly is a once in a lifetime experience!
3. Playa de Formentor
The Cap of Formentor counts among the most visited places on the island of Mallorca. With its picturesque lighthouse on the tip of the cliffs and spectacular mountain view it is no wonder why. But have you ever visited this gem by boat? If not, it is about time!
Rent a boat in Alcúdia or hire a yacht in Pollensa and sail to Playa Formentor. If the beach is too crowded then sail along to Cala Figuera, passing by the Cap Formentor's stunning scenery.
4 . Portals Vells
Portals Vells is the top boating destination when resting a day yacht charter in Palma de Mallorca. Portals Vells has various calas and 2 restaurants ashore, which offer a water taxi service. On the way from Palma to Portals Vells you'll be able to stop for a swim break or head to one of Mallorca's chicest beach clubs, that are all located in close proximity.
5. Cala LLamp
Are you renting a boat in Andratx or hiring a yacht in Port Adriano? Then our number one recommendation for a day boat trip is Cala Llamp. Crystal clear water and a chic beach club overlooking the luxurious boats make the perfect spot for a lunch break during your day on the water.
Although there is no sandy beach in Cala Llamp, the rocky shoreline offers natural swimming pools, which make Cala Llamp one of the uniquest bathing spots on Mallorca's coast. If you do not fancy the salty water - don't worry. The beach club offers a swimming pool to refresh.
6. Cala Mondragó
If you are spending your Mallorca boating holidays with your children then Cala Mondragó is your beach! Located in the middle of a stunning National Park, this beach is an oasis of fine white sand dunes and shallow waters. A wooden beach shacks sells drinks, fresh fruit and snacks.
Cala Mondragó is connected to a second beach called S'Amarador. A short walk along a pine tree fringed shore connects one to another. Your little ones can swim here in the water, play on the sand or try to jump from the lower cliffs into the turquoise sea.
7. Bahia de Alcúdia
Head with your boat rental to Mallorca's north and spend a fantastic day at the Bahia de Alcúdia. The pretty beach side promenade with lots of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops make the Bahia de Alcúdia a great place for a day boat trip with your family. Alcúdia is also a great beach for water sport activities, thanks to its steady sea breeze. Try yourself at kite surfing or hire a jet ski on the beach.
8. Platja d'es Carbó
Enjoy beautiful views over the Balearic's fourth island - Cabrera and sail to Platja d'es Carbó. This long sandy beach near the coastal town Colonia San Jordi is mainly visited by locals during the summer months. The scenery is similar to Es Trenc's and perfect for a boating day. Take a Stand up paddle board with you and paddle around the Isla Montona.
9. Cala Marmols
Getting to Cala Marmols requires quite a hike - therefore the best option to visit this jewel is by boat. Cala Marmols crystal clear waters and hidden caves invite for snorkel adventures! Make sure to take a picnic with you when sailing to this beach, as there is no infrastructure at the beach - you will be only surrounded by nature and very few people on the beach. Definitely one of our favourites!
10. Cala Na Clara
Near the small town Betlem, in Mallorca's north east is Cala Na Clara. As the name implies, Cala Na Clara is a paradise of crystal clear waters, surrounded by a scenic mountain range and a lush green forest. At the easter end of the beach is a small harbour where your boat can be moored. If you are visiting this beach with a boat charter from Menorca and want to stretch out your legs, there is a lovely trekking path that will take you from the harbour to Betlem in less than an hour!
