Moderate

This is an excellent, and stunning linear coastal walk, and can just as easily be approached from either end - from Sóller or from the small bay of Cala Tuent. A delightful bonus to the walk is that we pass the fine old finca Balitx d'Avall (now a restaurant and hotel), tucked away in a valley lined by terracing with olive trees. Here we can stop, enjoy a freshly squeezed orange juice (from the farm's own produce) and lap up the atmosphere of one of Mallorca's old rural enterprises.

We set off from just outside Soller along wide easy tracks through open farmland and gnarled olive groves. We then dip into a deep valley lined with terracing and arrive at the lovely Finca d'Avall, where we can stop for a freshly squeezed orange juice, before climbing quite steeply (the only real ascent coming from this direction) up via Coll de Biniamar to join the coastal path of Sa Costera along to Cala Tuent. The views and scenery are varied and spectacular throughout....

We walk on wide - often stony - tracks and narrow paths.

Depending on the time of year (April to October) we can either get a ferry back to Sóller or we can organise the charter of a private sailing yacht with skipper for your return journey. A fabulous way to end a beautiful day's hiking!
