We know Mallorca very well. It is a lovely island with lots of good anchorages
and easy-to-navigate waters. The wx is lovely in spring, early summer, & fall but every yachtie in Europe
knows that & are on the island looking for moorings and anchorages
. That said, as a yachting mecca, the island has every conceivable item a boat-owner could possibly need. August is very hot and has little wind
. Winters can be pretty cool--it occasionally snows in the mountains. For a live-aboard
in a center with schools, etc.you might consider Porto Colom. It is a lovely town on the East coast
in a large natural harbour, has permanent mooring
buoys at reasonable value, and has all the necessary amenities.
I know there are an International School
in Portals Nous, West of Palma, and believe there is also either an American or British School there as well. There isn't much close by for an available port though as Portal Portals, which is very close, is very expensive & getting a mooring
there is next to impossible.
If Mallorca is a location you wish to consider, post me with your questions & I'll try to help you out.
