    Sailing in Mallorca

    Mallorca is located in the Balearic islands off the eastern coast of peninsular Spain. There isn't ever a bad time rent a boat in Mallorca. It all depends on your personal weather preferences. Days are long and the weather is hot and dry in the summer, which is, naturally, the busiest season. Winters are cool, but still perfectly amenable for sailing.

    Mallorca's main international airport is situated in the capital of Palma. Transcontinental flights are somewhat limited, but there are numerous flights from European hubs, including low-cost carriers. Reaching your yacht charter in Mallorca is quick and easy; you have the option of public bus, shuttles or taxi and most cities on the island can be reached within roughly an hour by car from Palma. As part of Spain and the EU, a visa is not required for many citizens, though it is always best to check before you travel. The local currency is the euro.

    A boat hire in Mallorca is the ultimate way to explore the island's diverse coastline. The west coast is distinguished by its towering mountains, sleepy fishing villages, and picturesque orchards of orange and almond trees, while the east coast offers an incredible array of small coves and bays that are perfect for a family holiday. The north has remained relatively wild and rustic where the dramatic coastline offers some of the best views for hikers. In the southern coast of the island the Gothic cathedral of Palma dominates the skyline. Here you’ll also find incredible nightclubs and long stretches of white sandy beaches.

    The capital of Palma is the most popular starting spot for a boat trip in Mallorca. Palma and the surrounding area offer multiple spots for mooring and several attractions near the marina and along the Paseo Maritimo. In Palma, don’t miss the Castell de Bellver, the Basilica de Sant Francesc and the La Seu Cathedral, partly designed by Antonio Gaudi, are just a few interesting sites to visit within a stone's throw of the shore.

    If you're seeking something a little more physically active, most locations across the island offer a range of water sports, from jet skiing to scuba diving. Top locations for divers include, Neptune’s Temple, Bridges and Cove de Marina. Most of these sites are located around the north-eastern corner of the island, so if you're interested in diving, make sure that Alcudia or Port Pollenca are on the itinerary.

    The best time to charter a yacht in Mallorca is April-September, but you can enjoy pleasant temperatures year round. Summer produces steady thermal winds and there is a gentle breeze present for most of the day. On a pleasant summer day, the wind speed is low, with a high of around 10 kts; this is changeable and often in the winter this can be considerably higher or even none at all. If you're a novice sailor, then it's a great idea to rent a boat in Mallorca, as the largely temperate conditions are perfect for practicing. However, if you are in doubt, hire a skipper through Zizoo so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.


    In winter, sailing is still possible although winds are a little less predictable. Staying in the bay areas will provide protection from strong gusts. The secluded bays also ensure that swells are minimal in this area. In general, swells tend to be low, around 0.5m, but storms or other shifts in the weather can see them change quickly, sometimes with little notice.
