Easy

The Serra de Na Burgesa is relatively unknown to walkers and yet it is just behind Palma and overlooks some of the busiest parts of the south-western coastline. In fact this is part of the magic - we look down on the hub-hub from a place a tranquility, where we hear only birds. Up here the walking is mainly easy with just a few ascents, the scenery and views are spectacular, and there are lots of examples of indigenous flora as well as many a siting of wild goat!

At weekends there are a few mountain cyclists and other local walkers, and at certain times of the year, the local residents are out gathering setas (wild mushrooms) or other berries etc. At other times we have the place virtually to ourselves! There are many different linear and circular walk options up here and one of our favourites is this one.

We start at the Na Burgesa restaurant climbing gently to the top of the ridge, from which we get spectacular views of the busy south coast on one side and the Tramuntana mountains on the other. All along we see excellent examples of some of the island's indigenous plants, an ancient lime kiln, and superb views of the Calvia valley and the high peaks of the Tramuntana range from the Mirador de n'Alzamora. Here we take a break and enjoy the view before continuing on our route. We finish back at the restaurant, where we can relax with the best view of Palma over lunch and a few drinks!
