Scenic routes in Mallorca
The best scenic routes around Majorca
Get ready to discover the best landscapes in Majorca at the wheel of your rental car. Because of its small surface (3,640 km²), its excellent road network and its priceless combination of sea and mountains, the island is an ideal destination to explore by car.
One of the places you really can’t miss on your route is the picturesque Sierra de Tramuntana, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011. It is full of breath-taking corners such as Torrent de Pareis, a spectacular 3 km long canyon with 200 m high cliffs. Can you imagine?
The same can be said for Puig d’Alaró an 800 metre hill with a castle perched on tip from which you can enjoy magnificent views over the bay of Palma. Or the Santueri Castle, a fortification located in the Sierra de Levante, in the area of Felanitx, close to Cala d’Or, where we have a car rental office. The road from Valldemossa to Sóller, connects two of the most emblematic Majorcan towns, or further afield the area around Puig de Randa, including three sanctuaries, and a cave, where the philosopher and Saint Ramon Llull lived as a hermit, are all worth visiting.

On this island, even the sky is capable of hypnotizing visitors.
