Playa de Palma Self-guided Cycling Tour

Through the placid heart of the island

Steep coasts, shimmering saltwater lakes and picturesque beaches and bays characterise the first two days of this cycling holiday. The dragon caves in Porto Cristo are arguably the best-known natural spectacle.The cultural highlight on the way North is the pearl town of Manacor, before you return to the coast in Can Picafort. After that you immerse yourself into the heart of the island, which is just as stunning as the coastal areas. Olive groves, orange orchards and sleepy little villages are situated directly along this phenomenal cycle route. Back at the Playa, the island is vibrant and awake again and is at the same time the finale of a diverse and impressive cycling tour.

  • Day 1

    Arrival Playa de Palma

    From the airport by taxi to the start hotel.

  • Day 2

    Playa de Palma – Colònia Sant Jordi approx. 55km

    Welcome briefing. The tour takes you closely along the coastline to Capocorp Vell, the realm of the cyclops (ruins of native inhabitants’ dwellings). Typical wind turbines line the way to the saline fields of Llevant with its pink and white shimmering salt lakes. One of the most beautiful beaches in Majorca is the white sandy beach ‚Es Trenc’. In Sant Jordi, you can enjoy even more beaches with crystal clear water.

  • Day 3

    Colònia Sant Jordi – Porto Cristo/surrounding approx. 55km

    Via Ses Salines to a botanical garden. Visit the picturesque bay near Cala Santanyi. Then cycle through little fishing villages to the famous natural bridge ‚Es Pontas’. Near Porto Cristo you find the dragon caves with bizarre shapes and wall paintings. We recommend a visit with a guided tour!

  • Day 4

    Porto Cristo/surrounding – C’an Picafort approx. 60km

    Cycle via the sleepy village of Son Carrio to Manacor. Here you find the factories producing the famous artificial pearls, called ‚Majoricas’. Countless little shops offer souvenirs and hand-made ceramic everyday objects. Via Petra (typical Majorcan lunch snack will be prepared) and Santa Margalida through one of the most enchanting landscapes of the island to C’an Picafort. Today you are back to the sandy beaches lining the coast.

  • Day 5

    C’an Picafort – Centre of Island/Inca approx. 35-65km

    Wonderful paths lead you along the World Cultural Heritage site Tramuntanas. This amazing mountain range serves as a backdrop for this valley lined by olive groves. The especially diverse limestone caves in Campanet are well worth a visit. Blending into the rural surroundings is also your accommodation for the next two days. You spend the night in one of the so-called Hotel Rurales, which ooze special charm and are kept and run in the traditional Finca-style.

  • Day 6

    Tour around the Puig de Inca approx. 55km

    Today’s tour takes you around the Puig de Inca, approx. 300 metres in height. You cycle through orange plantations and olive groves to countless Majorcan villages. Typical stone walls and village squares are the perfect places for a break. We recommend you definitely have a stop in the winegrowers’ village of Binissalem. This is the place where the most famous Majorcan wines are pressed and they can be sampled in various Bodegas.

  • Day 7

    Centre of Island/Inca – Playa de Palma approx. 35-65km

    A day of contrasts. Your tour starts in the rural hinterland and leads you through sleepy little villages. However, as soon asyou reach the coast, the island is awake and pulsating along the Playa. A wide variety of restaurants and leisure activities provide an entertaining final day of this holiday.

  • Day 8

    Departure or extension of your stay
