Did you anchor
anywhere? On noonsite I see a disturbing message:
"The drive to protect Seagrass (Posidonia) is making cruising Mallorca (Balearics) at anchor
in particular very difficult.
You are not allowed to anchor anywhere where there is sea grass
where your anchor or your chain touches it. The "posidonia police" come along and inspect your anchor then tell you to move on, even if your own dive onto your anchor showed no weed present. This is ANYWHERE. So if you drop into a cala or anchor off a beach (e.g. Cala Carogol) they will turn up and turf you off, even where they have not yet laid buoys.
Others have mentioned the price
of moorings (Euro 50-100)and the fact you have to book them in advance by phone
talking to someone whose English
is about as good as my Spanish.
Makes you feel very unwelcome - we shall move on next season."
That was august 2017.
We would be interested to sail in this area in October/November and I can't afford to spend that much per night so I'm trying to find out which possibilities there are.
