Boat trips

You can take a boat trip from beaches all around Majorca. There's a type for everyone: book a full, half-day or evening catamaran cruise to explore the bays and coves, plus some provide lunch or dinner. Or go for a party boat trip with DJs, dinner and drinks for a less formal trip. There's also the chance to charter a yacht for a day of peaceful sailing around the island.


The sparkling clear waters that surround Majorca are just begging to be explored. Most beaches in Majorca offer scuba classes: beginners can learn the ropes from experienced staff, while more experienced divers can hire some equipment and take a guided trip out to sea to try to catch a glimpse of the area's colourful marine life.

Stand-up paddleboarding

Majorca's calm bays and gently lapping tides are perfect for stand-up paddleboarding (or SUP). An offshoot of surfing, paddleboarders stand on the board and propel themselves along with an oar. As it's an ideal beach activity for beginners, plenty of places in Majorca let you get out onto the water and try it for yourself.


There are classes for all levels, from beginners to pros as well as family lessons too. You can also go on kayaking tours from Majorca's beaches that take you out to the area's secretive caves and let you stop off to snorkel in the warm waters or just spend some time relaxing on different beaches along the way.


Sometimes the most obvious choice is the best. Majorca is sprinkled with beaches that are perfect for laying back and relaxing under the sun. Go west to Portals Vells for fine sands and a verdant backdrop, or east to Cala Formentor Beach which is lined with palm trees and blessed with gentle turquoise tides.
