Self-guided 8-day Cycle Tour Majorca East Coast Level 2
Sandy bays and Dragon caves
It still exists, the other Majorca: picturesque tranquil bays with turquoise-blue water and fine white sand. A festival of colours, shapes, and the scents of flowering meadows among countless almond trees. Monasteries and pilgrimage churches, castles, mysterious flowstone caves and romantic country houses in the sun – jewels in the unspoilt hinterland far away from the tourist crowds.The plains and gently rolling hills of the interior of the island and its east coast offer a great climate and are ideal for biking tours. On your way, you will cycle past small sandy bays and cliffs overgrown by pine trees as well as past wind mills, olive groves, and almond trees.
The different stages between 20 and 50 kilometres can be cycled easily by anyone. Only a few slight climbs have to be mastered. Almost all of the paths are asphalted. The individual stages can be shortened or extended.

Arrival in Palma de Majorca
Transfer to Cala Millor/Sa Coma and to your hotel where you will find your travel documents and bikes. We recommend taking a walk along the promenade.
Trip to the Romantic Town Artà approx. 40km
First, you will ride your bicycle via Sant Llorenc (church Santa Maria del Bellver from the 13th century) and through the picturesque hinterland of the island. Wonderful paths will lead you to Artà. Numerous alleys lead up to the hill on which the town was built. From the pilgrimage church Sant Salvador you will be able to enjoy a unique panoramic view of the surrounding coastline, the hills, the almond orchards and olive groves. On your way back, you will soon arrive back at the coast and your hotel.
Trip to the Pearls of Manacor approx. 50km
Son Carrio is the first destination to stop and you should taste Ensaimades, the lightest, softest, and most delicious pastry of the Balearic Island. Refreshed, you will enjoy cycling over the gently rolling hills to Manacor and you will still have enough time to visit the artificial pearl production in the centre of Majorca. You will find yourself on quiet ways which are easy to cycle on the way back to the hotel.
Trip to the Cap des Pinar approx. 20km
A shorter stage today will lead you along the coast to the beautiful viewpoint Cap des Pinar. Here you will have a wonderful view of the bays of Cala Bona and Cala Millor. Cosy cafes in small ports invite you to stay and relax. Be sure to sit with the fishermen who are spending their afternoons there, they have one or two adventurous stories to tell and happy to share their stories.
Today, no bike ride is on the agenda. We recommend a short hike/walk to the Punta de n’Amer, a 2 km long peninsula and nature reserve close to the hotel. Besides enjoying the Mediterranean flora and fauna visit the defence tower Es Castell de sa Punta de n'Amer and the cave Cova de ses Crestes (a former cave dwelling).
Trip to the Caves of Artà and to the Cap Vermell approx. 40km
The day starts with a relaxed bike ride to Capdepera with its triangular fortress and fortification wall that can be walked on. Continue your trip on back roads with little traffic to Canyamel and to the caves of Artà. The impressive entrance, located about 50 metres above the sea leads to Majorca’s largest flowstone cave. Your way back will take you past the defence tower Torre del Canyamel . Follow the olive groves back to your hotel.
Trip to Porto Cristo and Punta de s’Estany approx. 40km
On beautifully landscaped bike paths cycle through the interior of the island to the viewpoint Punta de s’Estany with a marvellous view of the coast and sea. Continue your journey along the cliffs into the natural bay and harbour Porto Cristo with an interesting old town and the famous Dragon Caves which extend over 1,700 metres. Before you return to your hotel, jump into the water for a swim which was awarded with the 'Blue Flag' for excellent water quality.
