Amazing activities in Majorca

Rugged mountain peaks and lush countryside has made Majorca a paradise for mountain bikers, hikers and horse-riding enthusiasts. The island’s perfect size and good quality roads means you can base yourself almost anywhere – opt for the tranquil, four-star Iberostar Cala Domingos, situated next to a peaceful sandy cove with pedalos in Calas de Mallorca, and smack in the middle of hiking trails all along the east coast of the island. It’s a short drive to the Boquer Valley in the north east where you’ll spot birds including blue rock thrushes, warblers and wrynecks among the olive trees.

Leave your flip-flops behind for the hike from Port de Pollença to the sea at Cala Boquer, the secluded rocky bay, surrounded by limestone cliffs, has crystal-clear waters and an abundance of marine life. Sign up for family-friendly, beach life at the VIVA Cala Mesquida Resort and Spa (main image, above) in the quiet northern town of Cala Mesquida, close to the The Tower of Albarca, which is the starting point for one Majorca’s top mountain biking routes.
