Mar 20, 2008
Imagine floating on a yacht over the beautiful azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea, sipping a cocktail off the coast of Spain. Sound like a dream come true? A visit to Majorca this spring will make that vision a reality.

The splendor of the sun and sea surrounding Majorca are ready and waiting for you to enjoy at the 23rd annual International Boat Show. The event will be held from April 26 to May 4 in the Moll Vell port area of the island. The show encompasses over 15,000 square meters on land and 30,000 square meters of sea. Nearly 300 boats will be featured as exhibitions in the event, which focuses on the recreational side of sailing. One could also expect to see a variety of faces off the 'Who's who' list as well.

The International Boat Show promises visitors a detailed look at the past, present and future of sport sailing. The event features motor boats, jet skis, light yachts, canoes, kayaks, rubber dinghies, auxiliary tenders, naval electronics and marine engines. There will also be exhibits on sport fishing and deep sea diving. Marine construction, accessories and equipment vendors will be on hand to promote the latest and greatest advances in sailing technology. It is sure to be the spectacle to see in the world of sport and pleasure craft from the Mediterranean area.

Majorca is the largest island off the coast of Spain. It is a part of the Balearic Islands Archipelago, along with famed party destination Ibiza, Minorca and Formentera. It is a hub of tourism due to its picturesque beauty and exciting nightlife. The island also boasts some of the best food in the world. In 2005, the island reported 2,400 unique restaurants, according to the Mallorcan Tourist Board. That's quite a bit of dining diversity for an island that covers 3,640 square kilometers.

While you are in Majorca, be sure to visit the beautiful Bellver Castle. It was built for King James II in the 14th century and later turned into a military prison in the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, it is one of the most popular landmarks on the island. Palma Cathedral is also a must-see. Constructed on the site of a destroyed Arab Mosque, the architecture of the cathedral is stunning.

Moll Vell, also known as the Old Port of Palma, recently underwent an extensive overhaul. The area was renovated and redeveloped, making it an ideal location for Majorca's International Boat Show. Palma is the capital city of Majorca, and it boasts a rich history that is reflected in its architecture and culture. Roman and Moorish influence is evident, as is the vibrant Spanish element.

A visit to Majorca is always a magical time, and coordinating your trip with the annual boat show guarantees you a fantastic holiday. Admission to the 23rd annual Majorca International Boat Show is 15 Euros, and the event is open from 10:00 to 20:00 daily. You won't want to miss it.
