in August and September
From Palma venture along the east coast and explore sheltered bays and white sandy beaches; sail the rugged western shore and overnight in the lovely fishing harbour of Puerto Soller; or spend the night at anchor in the beautiful Cabrera Island Nature Reserve.
If you are chartering for 2 weeks, why not visit the beautiful and lively islands of Ibiza and Formentera, 45 miles to the south, or the lovely island of Menorca with its secluded anchorages, just 27 miles to the north-east.
The east coast of Majorca experiences north-westerlies averaging force 3-4 and the west coast south-easterlies force 2-3. The strong Mistral winds blow in August in a north-westerley direction and can last for up to 3 days.
