The Blue Flag is a highly sought-after recognition awarded to beaches, marinas, and boat operators around the world who meet strict criteria for cleanliness, safety, water quality, and environmental standards. The Balearic Islands have been awarded a vast number of Blue Flag beaches. Majorca is home to 60 of those beaches! These facts prove that this island has the most environmentally friendly and cleanest beaches across the archipelago, if not all of Europe. Sail your sailboat charter to one of these pristine beaches and see first-hand why they are included on this exclusive list.
With more than 40 marinas spaced across the island, you can certainly imagine that there is a very active sailing community here. This is due to ideal sailing conditions in an attractive setting. The island’s sea breeze is known as Embat. Winds vary between 5 to 15 knots with a southeasterly breeze in the west and a northwesterly breeze in the east. A Mediterranean climate makes this piece of paradise a top pick for sailors all year long.

Treat yourself to Coca de Trampo, a type of flatbread with vegetables and a favorite snack among Majorcan locals.
