Majorca (Mallorca): Puerto Soller 39ºN47'  002ºE41'

August 2009

This marina is located at the NW of the island, where there are only a few ones. Located in a large bay, relatively well protected, the marina has only a few berths to offer to visitors. But the locals do their best to accommodate you  In any cases more than 30 boats can anchor, with good holding in sand. The place is full of animation and its little tram takes you to the old village of the same name. Nice bars and restaurants, a pharmacy, food shops... alongside the port, a little beach...enough for a stop over. The place has no real charm, but the people are very nice.

Majorca (Mallorca): Port Vey 39ºN38'  003ºE24'


A little bay without great interest. No protection from the winds and strong swell. We stayed a night as it was very quite, but if the beach is nice, the public is quite “vulgar”
The only bar closes at 6.30 Pm. The nearby Puerto de Costa de los Pinos is only for very small boats.












Majorca (Mallorca): Cala de Sa Font 39ºN40'  003ºE27'

We arrived mid afternoon and encountered only two sail boats. Strange...! We discovered rapidly why. A water sky school, jet skies, pedals boats, ... the whole concept of quietness! We left rapidly!






Majorca (Mallorca): Alcudia 39ºN50'  003ºE08'

To resolve a problem of windlass we decided to do a stop over in the marina of Alcudia. The marina is quite pertfect. Good staff, good showers, a laundry and lots of bars and restaurants. A few ship chandlers and shipyard complete the picture.

The only problem is that they had no 12-15 m. berth available and we had to rent a 18 m. one (84€ instead of 55€).

We recommend to take a taxi to the old town of Alcudia, that is very nice. After the repair we stayed a few more nights in the bay, where you anchor in sand by 5 meters. Leave your tender at the small pontoon of the Lounge/Sushi bar. PHOTOS
