Moderate

A walk of Mallorcan contrasts! Sleepy villages, a tiny fishing port, high peaks, incredible rock formations, torrents, turquoise seas, deserted beaches, and a sophisticated little port with delightful bars, cafes and boutiques to finish off with! This is a fabulous walk that shows the diversity of the south-west of the island to its very best. We have given it a blue boot largely because of a short section that requires a bit of scrambling - otherwise it is relatively easy walking though by no means flat!

We set off on foot from the serenity of the village of S'Arraco to ascend the peaks of Es Tres Picons. From here we get stunning views and some incredible rock formations. We then descend a broad valley via a wide, windy track to Cala Egos, an unspoilt shingle beach where we can stop for our picnic lunch and an optional swim. We'll probably have the place to ourselves as not even the 4-wheel drives can get there!

Recharged we then continue our walk along pine-clad cliff tops and over a series of rolling hills and a spectacular Coll to the little Port of Andratx. This is a place full of colour and charm with a chic Riviera-style waterfront and Mallorcan fishing boats. It is a perfect place to stop for a beer before taking a taxi back to your car or picking up a transfer back to your hotel.

Highlights

Lots of variety, fabulous sea views, deserted beaches....
