It’s the perfect weather for cruising the shimmering turquoise waters of the open ocean.
Charming Island Towns
As much as you might want to, you can’t spend all your time on the boat. You might want to get off the boat and explore the island. There’s no better place to do that than the Alcudia Old Town
. This charming walled-part of the ancient city is a modern history museum with fantastic locally made products as well as priceless artifacts from Spain’s long history.
Relax on the Beaches of Paradise
Mallorca is home to some incredible beaches. If you enjoy shimmering turquoise waters and white sand than nothing beats Playa de Muro
and Cala Llombards
. These two top beaches are the best place for a little barbecue and fun in the sun.
Best of all, they are simply massive. You can hang out by touristy parts and gets a few drinks at some of the seaside restaurants or make your way down the shore a little and have your own private slice of paradise.

All about the Watersports
