 Palma de Mallorca - Profile

Location

This busy port, whilst packed full of yachts and one of the more expensive places to visit in the Balearics, is well worth a visit for the old town of Palma alone. Founded by the Romans, this delightful city merits at least an overnight stop and time to explore the winding back streets and delightful eateries.

The approaches are well marked making it easy to enter both by day and night. The harbour is protected by two massive breakwaters, the ends of which are marked with powerful flashing lights.

Although the city now encompasses the entire bay, with tall buildings dominating the waterfront from one end to the other, those who wish to be closer to old Palma and all essential amenities will fare better if they take their boat to the northeast part of the harbour.

Position 39° 33'15" N, 002° 38'30" E. (harbour entrance)

Clearance

See Noonsite/Spain/Formalities for details of clearance requirements.

Yachts docked in one of the marinas should take their documents to the club office who will contact the relevant officials on their behalf. A Guardia Civil officer calls at the marina office every morning and completes formalities for boats that have arrived during the previous 24 hours. If required to visit other offices, those of Customs and Comandancla de Marina are located in Muelle Viejo.

Boats moored along the waterfront are also visited by a Guardia Civil officer. If this is not the case and the yacht has arrived from a foreign port, the skipper should contact the authorities at the earliest opportunity.

Nationals of countries who are required to have visas for Spain may be allowed a short stay without a visa. Permission for this must be obtained from the immigration office in town.

Last updated September 2016.

Docking

There are several places where yachts may berth in Palma and there are about 3000 berths within the bay.

Marinas

Real Club Nautico de Palma is one of Spain's foremost yacht clubs. The clubs marina has one thousand berths that are managed from the Capitania building at the western end of the main quay. The old clubhouse continues to be in the old port and the clubs yard and repair facilities are also concentrated here. Members of known yacht clubs are usually allowed to use the clubs restaurant but those who wish to reserve a place for their yacht must make arrangements well in advance as the marina is normally full to capacity. The busiest time is the summer when the club hosts the famous Copa del Rey, whereas Easter week is set aside for the Trofeo Santa Sofia. Cruisers report that fees here are very reasonable and include water, electricity, WiFi and use of the pool.

Adjacent to the club, in the old harbour basin, is Marina Moll Vell (previously call Pier 46). It is used mostly by local boats and rarely has available spaces. It is here that the annual boat show is held during the week preceding Easter.

The first marina along the Paseo Maritimo west of Club Nautico is Marina Port de Mallorca. The marina has 150 berths, most occupied by larger yachts. The marina office is on the north side of Paseo Maritimo at No. 35, but there is a dockmasters office on the main quay.

Next is Marina Alboran which is now called Naviera Balearis. It is opposite Hotel Mirador and is a Sunsail charter base. Its main office is also located on Paseo Maritimo in premises that are shared with the Voyage travel agency. Visitors' berths are available and mid week is best.

Pantalan de Cuarentenas is a smaller concession with 80 berths for smaller yachts and 12 berths for larger vessels. A similar concession is Pantalan del Mediterraneo which aims at attracting larger yachts with 60 berths for yachts between 20 and 75 metres.

Club de Mar, located at the western end of Paseo Maritimo, has around 600 berths, some of which can take very large yachts of up to 125 metres. Several specialized companies are based in the marina offering a wide range of repair services. Next to the marina is Astilleros Mallorca for haul-outs and underwater work. This marina is reported to be pricey!

Anchorage

There is an anchorage in front of Palma cathedral, however only in calm conditions with no swell. It is difficult to find a dinghy landing near here (see comments at bottom of page).

Las Illetas
About 4Nm west of Palma.
This anchorage is sheltered apart from south easterly winds with good holding. Semi private beach and clubhouse. Very busy in the summer.

Puerto El Arenal
Yachts can anchor north or south of the port, holding is good, and access the marina via tender. There is a small chandlery outside the marina gates. Good anchorage for picking up crew from nearby airport, or dropping off.

The Port Authority (Junta del Puerto)
Muelle Viejo 19 , Palma , Spain
Tel:+34 971 724749
The Port Authority has a number of places within the harbour where yachts may berth. In principle, if there is no port official present, visiting yachts should take any vacant berth. Port officials visit boats every day to collect charges for docking, electricity and water. They work from 0800-1500, 1630-1900, mornings only in winter. Visiting yachts can also moor stern to the main quay and use their own bow anchors. As some of these places face the harbour entrance, there is noticeably more swell than elsewhere. In addition, yachts left on the quay, and not on a pontoon with locked gates, are in danger of being broken into if left unattended.

I can only confirm what Scarcity says: Palma is intimidating for people with a small budget.
We arrived after 2 days at sea from Sardinia and went inside La Longa marina. They charge per square meter, we ended up paying €67 for one night. Basic facilities but very central.

We moved to the anchorage in front of Palma cathedral. Anchoring is fine as long as there is no swell, great view!
Anchoring is also possible at Las Isletes a little to the West.

What's really difficult is "parking" your boat or dinghy anywhere inside the port for a short shopping trip or airport pick-up. On Sundays and holidays it's possible (not officially, of course) to put the yacht at the fishermen's petrol station (Repsol, more in the centre quite far inside the port) for a couple of hours or even for the night (make sure you are gone by 5 a.m.!!). Don't do the same at the other petrol station opposite. We tried and got in trouble, had to pay around €40.

Finding a place to park the dinghy is also difficult when you are anchoring outside the port, there is nowhere to put it. We had to drive the dinghy all the way inside the port (25 minutes with our 3HP outboard engine).

But: Palma is really the place to get anything fixed and organised. We were thinking of getting our diesel tanks cleaned and asked for a quote. We ended up having it done the next day in the morning (!!) for less than 300.-€

I brought my new Lagoon 39 from France to Mallorca in April 2015 to have the purchased options installed and was docked at Club de Mar for a month.
Club de Mar is very expensive and inconvenient. I paid for one month of docking more than 3,500 Euros and the shower and toilet facilities were located about 800 meters away from the berth.
Club de Mar is strictly for mega yachts, with owners that don't care about price and facilities. On top of the expensive price for the berth, water, electricity and Internet are charged extra.

Palma is intimidating for anyone who doesnt have a superyacht and Bill Gates' bank account. But it is the place to get anything done anywhere in the Med. For all-around help on nearly any issue, the man to know is Marco Witkamp, owner of Palma Maritime. He is extremely knowledgable, responsible and accountable to owners.
