A very peaceful and extensive place, with a sandy bottom, at the side of a cliff, and with many seagulls soaring overhead. Delightful swimming pools in the rock formations. Open to the S and SW.


Small port, peaceful and rather far removed from the bustle of this tourist resort. All marina facilities available here. The Club restaurant is rather good.

CALÓ DES MONJO star star

This still unspoilt and pretty cove, just before Cabo Andritxol, is a perfect place to spend the day. Only accessible by sea, it is normally not at all busy.

PUERTO DE ANDRATX star star moon

Fishing port and marina, it is a favourite of the German jet set. There is a modern and pleasant Yacht Club (Sailing Club, on entering to Port) as well as other possibilities for berthing on the Port Authorities Quay (to Starboard). The anchorage area is spacious and well protected. In the town, there are good restaurants such as the Miramar, Rocamar, La Dorada, and Mar Blau. Well worth a visit.

CALA EN BASSET star star

Fabulous cove with rocks and a lovely seabed, perfect for spending a few hours. Watch out for the rocks at the entrance.

LA FORADADA star star star moon

One of the loveliest anchorages in the Balearic Islands, particularly at dusk. From here you can see the Serra de Tramontana in all its glory, and the place is simply tremendous.


A pebble beach at the mouth of the torrent that flows down from the spectacular mountains in the area. The anchorage is sheltered and very pretty. There are a couple of good beach bars. The nearby village of Deià is one of the loveliest on the Island.

PUERTO DE SOLLER star star moon

Only port on the entire Tramontana coast, it has a few berths but a splendid anchoring area. There are several restaurants in the bay, and the best is Es Canyis. There are also several bars and many hotels around the harbour – but all with an air of having seen better days!

CALA TUENT star star star moon

Fabulous cove surrounded by mountains, pine trees and clear water… and no people. Quite unforgettable! If you stay overnight, check the weather forecast, as it is open to the N.

SA CALOBRA star star moon

Really quite stunning with it imposing cliffs of great beauty. Infinite number of corners to explore by dinghy. In summer, there are several days when classical music concerts are performed in the mouth of the spectacular Torrente de Pareis, which opens on to the small beach in this cove.

CALA CASTELL star star

Out of this world! And difficult to reach, this is a wonderful place, and outstanding for its tranquillity. There are some very interesting rock formations. It is also one of the locations with the most marine life.
