If you love diving, the Bay of Pollença in northern Majorca offers a variety of options for all levels of divers, even for beginners. The clear blue waters of the bay await you with a plethora of colourful fish in an amazing array of different shapes and sizes: octopus, sea bream, red mullet, or rabbitfish just to name a few.
The shallow waters of Punta de l’Avançada make it the perfect location for beginners. La Cueva de Charlotte (Charlotte’s Cave) also located in the Bay of Pollença, is an easy diving area with shallow waters where you can visit a cavern in the shape of a “C” from which the light is always visible. At the end of the Bay, you will discover Cap de Formentor, a certified deep-sea diving area, reserved only for the most experienced divers. You can dive among arches, caves and deep blue waters and experience a variety of sea life including octopuses, moray or conger eels, and grouper fish.
The coves (calas) of Capdepera, Cala Mesquida and Cala Agulla in Majorca are perfect for sports involving a board. In addition to the already popular sport of surfing, we have wakeboarding which is a surface water sport which involves riding a wakeboard over the surface of a body water with your feet placed in the shoe-like bindings mounted to the board. Similar to kitesurfing, the rider uses the wake to launch into the air and do flips. The spectacular coves of Majorca are also a great place to learn SUP (Stand Up Paddle) or Paddle Surfing which is one of the trendiest sports at the moment and adequate for people of all ages. This sport involves standing up on a board while using a paddle to navigate through the water.
