Overview of Palma 

 

Palma is one of the prime cruising destinations not just in Spain, but in all of Europe. One of the main cities of Mallorca, along with Formentera, Menorca, and Ibiza, make up the main attraction for sailing enthusiasts visiting the Balearic Islands. 

It looks like this city in Mallorca was created by nature for the sole purpose of sailing. It has multiple anchorages, secluded coves, and many natural harbors – all features that sailing enthusiasts look for in their dream boating destination. 

 

Renting a boat in Palma

 

 In Palma, you will find no shortage of activities. Experience the Spanish way of life in the hilltop villages, visit the wonderful orchards of oranges, enjoy the hidden beaches, and time travel by feasting the eyes on the stunning Gothic architecture. 

 

This holiday city is a lot more fun for tourists who love boating. That being said, Palma is many times more beautiful when seen from the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. 

 

If your main destination is Palma and you're looking to hire a boat, you'll definitely find what you're looking for. The waters bordering the city are full of boats of all shapes and sizes. It has some of the best and highly professional services that you can find in the Balearic Islands. 

 

Of course, your decision will depend on several factors, such as budget, preference, requirements, number of people in your group, and the distance you want to travel. To make your job easier here is a brief look at the options that you have in Palma. The boat rental services in the city have all major types of boats that tourists love – motorboats, sailboats, RIBs, catamarans, houseboats, and yachts. 

 

Those who don’t want to venture out too far into the water can choose a motorboat, sailboat, or a RIB for a single day. Otherwise, charter a yacht in Palma, with or without a skipper and go island hopping and cover several tourist hotspots in the region in a week or longer. 

 

The boats available to rent in Palma are also known for their top-notch, yet affordable service. Tourists can rent a boat in Palma for just 97€ per day. If you're looking to charter a catamaran, the average price per day is 400€ and you'll have the option of having a skipper as well. 

 

Weather in Palma

 

The city of Palma enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, which is a subtropical climate characterized by hot and dry summers and humid but mild winters. 

 

While other parts of Mallorca and its fellow Balearic Islands are known to experience strong north wind that blows over the Mediterranean, Palma escapes its wrath; largely due to the mountainous ranges. The city receives moderate to heavy rainfall from November to April. The remaining months get almost no rainfall, leaving Palma hot and dry, as mentioned above. 

 

The summers are hot, but not unbearable, thanks to the cooling effect of the Mediterranean waters. The summer is at its peak in August, when the temperature reaches the maximum of 40 degree Celsius. Again due to the surrounding sea, Palma never experiences sub-zero temperature winters. Palma witnesses its peak tourism season from April to June, September, and October. Which are also the best period to go boating !
