We found this place while driving up the coastal road to the lighthouse near Cap d'es Pinar (the peninsula opposite Formentor). You can sit in the shade or in the sun and enjoy pizza, seafood dishes, beer, wine, has ice cream all while looking out at the bay, the sailboats, and Formentor. To get here from Alcudia, head to es Mal Pas and take the road going Northwest (out to lighthouse, military restriction area). After the residential bit, it gets very scenic. You can't miss the beach bar because it's the only thing there.
Puerto de Soller is a port with a little fishing harbour.
I could appreciate pretty yachts and sailing boats but ... unfortunately none of them is mine. :-(
I am sure that they were from famous and rich people because Mallorca is vacation’s island for those people, including the Spanish Royal Family.
Rent a car and go the beach were you probaly don't run in to you fellow Swedish, Danish, German, Dutch country man. This is a wide and very nice beach with mainly Mallorca local visitors.
The sand is clean and white - the water is fine and the big fancy yatchs from Palma anchors off shore all along the beach.
The beach is located just north of "Ses Salines" on the south-west coast.
Sailing in Palma is a wonderful experience...the island is just gorgeous and filled with little cosy beaches (known as 'callas' or 'callitas') just waiting to be discovered.
If you can afford it and have the required skills & experience, go for it ;-)
Walking on the Paseo Maritimo U´ll see the fisherman boats and how they prepare their nets for the next day. I was walking and saw this long nets on the floor. They are everywhere.
In the north of the island, the coast is wilder, with cliff rocky, where have been constructed of the properties (of the possessions), belonging to multimillionaires.
With a little patience, I ended up well having it my wave!
Picture rare of the Mediterranean, stormy to the west of the island.
San Telmo is a beautiful little pueblo in the south western part of the Island which has a very nice beach, lots of activities, tours and not too crowded.
