Often chosen as a starting point for a cruise to the other islands of the archipelago, Mallorca remains the destination that offers the most sites to be discovered by sailboat, catamaran or motorboat.

The place, classified as a National Park, is the perfect site for a walk, especially as it is home to an impressive 14th century castle and a museum. Approximately 75 nautical miles from Cabrera, Ibiza is also a must-see destination in the Balearic Islands. Known for its nightlife that attracts partygoers, it is particularly pleasant to discover by sailing close to its coasts, knowing that 8 hours by boat are enough to sail around the island. Interesting anchorages include the one on the rocky islet of Tagomago, to the north-east of Ibiza, and Cala de Portinatx, still to the north, on a jagged coastline.
