We know, we know… You loved our yearly printed guides, filled with updated info about your favorite cruising destinations and gorgeous photos from professional photographers. They were flying off the shelves in marinas, boatyards and marine outlets, all over the harbors we covered. Many of you were even collecting them, summer after summer. And it is true that, since the launch of the Yacht Insider’s Guide publication in 2009, whether it was for the French Med, the Balearics Islands or New England, the focus has been on our printed guides.
Mallorca - North Coast
Stretching from the approach to Cape Formentor to Alcudia bay, the northern coastline of Mallorca offers a rich and varied landscape. Between Soller and Cape Formentor, the coast is rugged and wild, with steep hillsides dropping straight to the sea and a few “Calas” where yachts will find shelter in settled weather. Further to the east, the large bays of Pollensa and Alcudia open up on to lower grounds, with a choice of anchorages and marinas. Port de Pollensa and Port d’Alcudia are good bases to visit the inland villages of the same names, with their mazes of narrow streets and alleys, Roman ruins and early fortifications. The bay of Alcudia is lined with a long and narrow sandy beach, popular with tourists during the season. It’s harbour boasts the largest and best equipped marina along this stretch of coastline.
