- What people say...
Mallorca is one of the prime cycling destinations in the world. It has so much to offer...
A great climate which is ideal for cycling right through the season. The landscape is varied – often flat, but with the mountains in the north always close by. Beautiful villages and a combination of olive trees, pines, farmland, and the stunning coastline with its picturesque villages, crystal clear waters, and beautiful coves. The Mediterranean Sea is always close by and all our hotels on this circuit of the island are seaside hotels.
This tour can be done in conjunction with our Mallorca Sportive Cycle. Each night you are in the same location but the distances on this trip are shorter each day. Ideal opportunity to travel with others who might want a bigger cycling challenge!

From Ca'n Pastilla, you head south-east along the cycle path of the beautiful Bahía de Palma. Then the route turns inland before returning to the coast. This coastline is one of the least commercial in Mallorca due to its many cliffs sculpted by the blue waves of the Mediterranean, with long beaches and tiny coves surrounded by pines and junipers.

The coastline is one of the most beautiful to be found on any Mediterranean island.
