Mallorca has numerous inviting harbors and well-equipped marinas, where there is sufficient food, fuel, water and electricity supply. However, there can be a lack of space there, especially in summer. Alternatively, it is advisable to head for the numerous beautiful, secluded bays and anchorages. Guest berths are also offered in private yachting clubs, for a fairly steep fee, of course. It is cheaper in municipal ports.
Real Club Nautico: The Real Club Nautico in Palma is the most popular of its kind in Mallorca, as it not only offers the full range of services that are necessary for a yacht charter, but also close proximity to the city for exploring the Old town. The marina with its 990 berths in the heart of the bay offers perfect protection from winds and storms as well as excellent safety precautions.
Puerto Portals: Here you will find the most exclusive anchorage on Mallorca in a marina with 639 berths and every comfort. A selection of good restaurants, night clubs and bars make for interesting shore excursions. Due to the popularity of the marina, it is very difficult to find a berth in the high season. The tanker offers a good alternative to moor the yacht. A detailed overview can be found on the marina homepage at http://www.puertoportals.com
Portals Vells: D he Portal Vells bay offers good anchorages for yachts. Especially in the evening, when the hustle and bustle of the day has subsided, you can enjoy the tranquility of this picturesque bay. The beach restaurant is open until late at night.
Cala Figuera: This picturesque bay offers quiet anchorages and deserted beaches. In the small harbor you can find five to six berths directly on the harbor wall. Swell is possible here from time to time. The yacht lies quieter in the bay opposite the harbor, where it is anchored on the sandy bottom. In addition to sanitary facilities, restaurants and workshops, there are also limited provisioning and shopping opportunities.
Racó de sa Fragata (El Toro): In this well-protected and secluded bay you will find quiet and secluded berths. At the foot of the cliff you can anchor on sandy ground.
Santa Ponsa: The small marina is two kilometers from the town of the same name and offers the usual services and shopping opportunities. Sailing yachts are well protected here.
Port d’Andratx: This marina is a yachting port and fishing port and therefore only has a limited number of berths in the Club de Vela.

There are also a number of good restaurants and nightlife options in the city of Andratx. There are enough supply options.
