Port De Mallorca, Palma

Palma de Mallorca

Date Visited
February/March 2012


Approach and Entrance
Puerto de Palma is a busy harbour and the main hazards are ferries.  There are no specific approach angles and entrance can be made in any wind strength.  Once inside the harbour wall excellent shelter is provided from all wind directions.

Port de Mallorca
Avinguda Gabriel Roca, 36, 07014 Palma (Mallorca), Spain 
T. +34 971 28 96 93 
We wintered the boat paying €1600 plus e/w a month, but then struck a deal with them after we had the boat lifted for €50 a week all inclusive as this is what Real Club Nautico were offering. The normal price would have been around €150 a night, so you might want to shop around the other marinas in Palma. The ladies in the office are very helpful, especially Maggi who we dealt with.The marina is very secure with 24 hour security and lots of marineras. It is pretty central and most amenities are walking distance.Mooring numbers go from high to low from the entrance from the road.  Palma is a noisy most of the time so the further away from the road you can get the more peaceful it will be!   

Marina Facilities
Water and electricity
Toilets and showers
24 hour security
Marineras to help with mooring

Berthing Charges
€50-€150 a night for a 15m sail boat

Fuel Dock
There are numerous fuel docks inside the harbour walls, we used both of the ones just out side Port De Mallorca, their ecact location can be found on the map above. 

There are local laundry services in Palma, including collection and delivery services.  The marina office can point you in the right direction.  

Passeig Maritimo, 38, 07014 Palma (Mallorca), Spain

Ask for Rosa, she is very helpful and speaks good English. You can create an account with them and they will try and give you 10% discount on most things you buy. They also have a San Miguel Tap!

Yacht Center Palma
Jardines de San Telmo, 5, Real Club Náutico, 07012 Palma de Mallorca

It is a fair walk along the Paseo Maritimo, but they do have a very good selection of yacht bits as well as a few clothes and general water sports items.  They have a much better selection of charts than Merca Nautic and it is also possible to exchange your gas bottels for full ones at around 20€ a canister.  Peter is the manager and speaks very good English.  As well as their shop at the entrance of Real Club Nautico on the Paseo, they have a much larger warehouse at Son Bugadelles which is at the Santa Ponca exit of the Ma-1.
