Puerto Pollensa – Sierra de Tramontana

1 La Gola – Formentor

We meet at La Gola Beach on the far end of the Bay of Pollensa and kayak to Formentor, leaving the mighty Serra de Tramuntana Mountains behind. We will follow the coastline and explore emblematic landmarks like the Lighthouse of Punta Avanzada, the limestone quarry used to build La Fortaleza and the Estar d’en Ros. From here we will head seawards to the Cave d’en Borges and its startling turquoise waters. The route ends at Formentor Beach, where we will have a short rest and get our energy back before kayaking back.

Puerto de Alcúdia – Sierra de Tramontana

2 Alcanada – Coll Baix

We meet at Alcanada, a popular and family-friendly beach on the southern side of the Bay of Pollensa. The coastline here is mostly rocky at first, with clear transparent waters and a wide beach. At the end of the beach we come to “Punta des Far” where you will see the isle of Alcanada, some 150m from the coast, with its charming lighthouse built in 1860. From here onwards the coast, known as Platja des Secs, is virgin and wild with steep cliffs and pine forests.
The beach ends in a headland called “Es Faralló”, where the landscape changes abruptly, becoming more extreme and the cliff edges more pronounced, with heights ascending to 100-250 m, and small torrents etching into the rock.

The coastline is this part of the island is dotted with a large number of caves; “Sa Cova Tancada” etc, so isolated and difficult to reach that in the past they were used for contraband and are now only really accessible by sea. At the end of this route we come to the unspoilt headland of “Cap de Menorca”, from where you can see the vast Bay of Alcudia. To the southeast we come to the most memorable and virgin landmark in this corner of the island; the spectacular “Platja de Coll Baix” beach, a natural amphitheatre carved into the rock by the Torrent that crosses it.

Corral Benàssar – Sierra de Tramontana

3 Corral d’en Bennàsser – Cap Pinar

We meet at the “Corral d’en Bennàsser” and explore the coastline that runs from the Nature Reserve of La Victoria up to “Cap Pinar”. Starting at “Punta des Sebel.li”, we first head towards the marina of “Port de Barcarés”, kayaking past “Llosa de Barcares”, a good spot to catch some waves on days of easterly winds, and continue paddling to “Punta Manresa”, a slightly triangular shaped promontory with two small sandy beaches. From here we go on to “Punta de Tacàritx o Sa Guarda” leaving the Port behind and the last of the built up areas.
From this point onwards the coast is wild and unspoilt; “Racó de ses Barreres”,“Sa Ferradura”, la “Caleta des Capellanes”, S’Illot”, are all areas of magical natural beauty and exquisite turquoise waters, full of small coves and tiny islets.

Sa Dragonera – Sierra de Tramontana

4 Sa Dragonera– Sant Elm

We begin at “Sant Elm” Beach and head towards “Es Pantaleu”. History tells us that in 1229 King Jaume I landed his fleet on this very spot to embark on the Conquest of Mallorca, which was under Muslim Rule at the time. “Es Pantaleu” is 26 m high, 150 m from the coast. This is a particularly ragged coastline with numerous nips and crannies. At the far side of the beach you can see the tower of “El Castell”. From here we set out towards “L’Illa Mitjana” and views of “Sa Dragonera”, Mallorca’s 6th island. It is 4 km long by 1 km wide, some 700 m from the coast and the full loop is 13 km long. Though its form loosely resembles a dragon, its name actually comes from the numerous lizards that live here.

On our return, to the east of the beach of “Sant Elm” we will discover the coves of “Cala Llebeig” and “Cala en Rogau”, amongst others, and the small marina of “Es Mollet”. To the west of the island the coastal landscape is much steeper, without any coves or inlets, and with two particularly high peaks ; “Puig des Ancells” (311m) and “Puig des Faro Vell”( 360m). The island has two lighthouses; the “Far de Lleveig” lighthouse in the south and “Far de Tramuntana” in the north.

5 Cala Vinyes – Portals Vells

The route begins in the beach of “Cala Vinyes” and heads towards the lighthouse of “Faro de Cala Figuera”, leaving behind the small island “Illa de Sa Porrassa”. We follow the coast past sandstone cliffs famously used as stone quarries to build the “Palma Cathedral” and the “Bellver Castle”. From here we continue towards two small coves “Cala Falcó” and “Caló de sa Bella Dona” within the protected natural park of Cala Falcó. Steep cliff edges mark the coastline until we reach “Punta de s’Estaca, past the tiny island “Illa del Sec” and a submerged shipwreck 36m. below the surface. At “Punta de s’Estaca” we will see the tower of “Torre des Moro” and 3 small coves; the idyllic “Portals Vells” with its torrent and pine forest.

There are primitive sandstone excavations on the beach, which were later used by farmers and fishermen for shelter. The second beach is separated by a promontory to the north, known as “El Mago”, used in 1967 as the location for a film by the same name. “Portal Vells II” is the third cove and marina, and the end of the route.
