Viewing Mallorca from the water that surrounds it is a great way to experience the island’s remote corners and cerulean waters. Plus, many of the tours offer transportation from local hotels and resorts and some even include a nice meal, making the logistics simple. Most of the tours depart from and return to Palma's port, but they range in price and the length of time.  Regardless, of what tour you choose, remember to bring along sunscreen, a towel and bottled water for your day out at sea.

Captain Cook is a well-respected company in the Balearic Islands, and it offers a variety of sailing tours. Its full-day sailing package includes coffee and sweets in the morning, a three-course Spanish meal at lunch, and wine, beer, soft drinks and water, not to mention complimentary use of snorkeling equipment for use in a stunning bay. The cost is 195 euros (or about $220) per person.

Oasis Catamaran is another popular tour provider that sails visitors around the island, stopping in various bays and coves for swimming breaks. Prices range from 55 euros (around $62) to 79 euros (about $89). Lunch and drinks, as well as snorkeling equipment, are included in the price of the tour. For more information, visit each individual company's website.

Recent travelers said the experience of hiking through fragrant lemon and orange groves, olive orchards and awe-inspiring coastal views was "captivating." If you're driving rather than walking through Serra de Tramuntana, some travelers suggested taking your time – you'll be sharing the narrow winding roads with cyclists.
