Easy

This is a lovely, easy coastal walk, and unusually for Mallorca, it is virtually flat! Our route follows a narrow coastal path around the edge of the Cap de Cala Figuera peninsular, occasionally dipping down to some of the loveliest beaches on the island. We pass some weird rock and sand cave formations, and the lighthouse at the end of the peninsular. It feels like we're a long way from civilisation with only squawking seagulls for company...

We start from the first of a series of delightful coves, Cala el Mago, following the beautiful coastline, crossing broad rock shelves and scrambling up a few steep scrubby slopes to reach more beaches and then a plateau beyond. Our route takes us past marble quarry caves (quarried in the 16th Century for stone for Palma Cathedral), which we can explore before continuing on our way south to the lighthouse and ruined watchtower.

From here we continue over unspoilt heath and scrubland, still along the coastline, and continue west to a number of natural look-out points across the dramatic Cala Rafeubetx. Continuing north we follow the coast and then follow sandy paths and tracks to return to Cala el Mago, from where we set off.

Highlights

Fabulous little beaches with clear blue water and tranquility - just a stone's throw from the busy south western coastline.
