Mallorca is an island loved by the sailing fraternity. Apart from Palma itself, there are dozens of ports all around the coastline in which to drop anchor; after tourism, yachting is Majorca´s second largest industry. These ports range from quite rustic like Club Maritim Molinar in Portixol, where you can observe simple sailing craft – right up to big and glitzy Puerto Portals and Port Adriano where the rich and the Royal moor up in their super yachts.
For a less expensive day at sea, most of the urban beaches are well served with pedalos, banana boats and jetskis – but if you fancy something a little more adventurous, then read on.
If windsurfing or kite surfing is your sport of choice, Can Pastilla to the east side of the bay of Palma, is extremely popular because of it´s broad expanse and if you´re lucky, strong winds. Also popular for wind surfing in the north of the island are the bays of Alcudia and Pollensa. You don´t need to worry about packing your equipment, there are lots of places to hire everything you need at reasonable prices. www.watersportsmallorca.com Tel 606353807
Son Serra de Marina over on the east coast is also very popular for kite surfing because of the wind and the wide open bay – particularly useful when learning to kite surf!

Paddle boarding is a popular sport on the island and so too is wakeboarding. Alcudia is fortunate to have a wakeboarding park on a lake, which offers an easier option when learning the sport. www.mallorca-cableski.com Tel: 666448922
