What does Port d’Addaia offer us?

There are many options offered by this port and the town that bears its name. We can make excursions to learn more about the natural cove in which the port has settled or routes to know its surroundings and other nearby beaches.

In the surroundings of the port you can go horseback riding or snorkeling in the seabed.

If we like nature and, especially ornithology, the Addaia salt pans are the perfect place for us because, framed within the limits of the Natural Park of s’Albufera des Grau, there are many species of birds of prey and waterfowl that have found their home. If we are encouraged to visit them, we must be respectful and try not to disturb or frighten them with our presence.

The route to reach the salt flats is part of the stage of the Camí de Cavalls that goes from the cape of Faváritx to Arenal d’en Castell. So if, after the visit, we feel like doing some more hiking, we already know which path we can follow.

Also, back at the port, we can take a kayak to explore the Addaia Islands. These islets have remained unchanged for centuries and we can find hidden among them small coves that are authentic jewels.

How to get to Port d’Addaia by boat?

To get to Port d’Addaia by boat, we will have to leave the port of Mahón in a SE direction, leaving the dock to starboard. We will continue through the port until we reach the open sea (up to Punta de Sant Carles).

At this point, we will leave the San Carlos lighthouse to starboard, and continue to port along the coast (heading NE).

We will pass La Mola and Punta de S’Espero, to advance in a NW direction (always sailing with the coast to port).

We will pass Cap Negre, Punta de Sa Galera and, finally, Punta de sa Cudia. On the port side we will see an inlet that leads to Es Grau and in front we will have Illa d’en Colom. We will have to overcome it leaving it on the port side and continue in a NW direction until we pass the Cap de Mossen Vives and the Escull den Tortuga. From the bow we will see the Cap de Favàritx and its unmistakable lighthouse.

Skirting the Favàritx point, we will sail in a NW direction until we see the Addaia islands. We will go around them to the north and descend towards the south along a pronounced sea chute (located between Punta de Sa Torre and Punta Roja) that will take us to Cala Addaia.
