Route through the Sierra de Tramuntana
What to say about this spectacular mountain range, located in the northwest of the island and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011. Within its 90 km long and 15 km wide stretch -which represents 30% of the insular relief and more of 1,000 km2-, we find 20 beautiful. Among them, it is worth mentioning the picturesque Sóller, surrounded by fruit trees; Calvià, Deià or Pollença. Anyway, we must also mention other less known populated villages, such as Costitx, where the Talayotic town of Son Corró is located; Llubí, Maria de la Salut or Sencelles.
Traveling along the roads of the interior of the island, you can discover Ariany, where the sanctuary of the Virgin of Atocha, Montuïri or Petra are located, which also stands out for its unique church. As the final stop of this tour, we find the city of Manacor, famous for being the birthplace of tennis player Rafa Nadal and an important town.
Palma de Mallorca-Banyalbufar (25 km)
Taking the Ma-10 and Ma-1040 roads from the Mallorcan capital, and in barely three quarters of an hour, you will reach the charming town of Banyalbufar. You and your loved ones can enjoy the views from your rental car in Mallorca too, as they are simply jaw-dropping. The route is quite winding, but we assure you it’s worth it.
Once in Banyalbufar, do not miss the tower of Ses Ànimes, which was built in the seventeenth century to watch the coast before the threat of pirates. Nor should you miss some villages nearby, such as Estellencs, very popular among hiking and cycling enthisiasts. This place is also famous for hosting some of the best coves in Mallorca. Do not miss it!
Palma de Mallorca-Cape Formentor (65 km)
This bus tour, most of which runs along the wide Ma-13, allows you to explore the island from end to end, from the southwest to the northeast, and get to know the northernmost point of Mallorca. There you will find a lighthouse that rises about 200 m above sea level, breathtaking cliffs bathed by crystal clear waters and coves such as Engosalba, Figuera or Murta. In its final section, the road winds, but the views you will enjoy from the viewpoint of Sa Creueta well deserve this small effort.
Wine tour in Mallorca
If you want to take advantage of your holidays in Majorca to do enological tourism, take advantage of your bus rental to discover the secrets of the Binissalem Denomination of Origin wine. To do this, you can move to the area of Raiguer, famous for its vineyards, and towns such as Benissalem, Consell or Santa Maria del Camí, where some wineries open their doors to the public.
Palma de Mallorca-Coves del Drach, in Portocristo (58 km)
If there is an iconic place in the east of Mallorca, those are the Caves of Drach. Located in Portocristo, these wonderful grottos unfold along 1.2 km in length, studded with stalactites and stalagmites. In addition, its insides are home to Lake Martel, considered one of the most extensive underground lakes on the planet.
