The north eastern corner of Mallorca has some fantastic, and still very under-rated, walks. It is far less popular with walkers than the north west or even the south west of the island, and yet it is equally stunning - in a very different way. This is a gentler landscape with a very special atmosphere. Here the seas are azure blue and the coastline is indented by lots of small coves and beaches with white sand and views that stretch as far as Menorca...

This circular route starts and finishes in Cala Estreta just outside Artá. We set off along wooded paths and tracks, with lovely mountain views, from time to time dipping down to deserted beaches with striking tourquoise seas. We stop for our picnic at beautiful, sandy Font Celada beach and then continue our route back via rocky coastal paths. We are treated to spectacular sea views, cliffs, fascinating rock formations and (often!) a fantastic view of the island of Menorca. We then pass the beautifully preserved 16th century watch tower, Torre d’Albarca, and continue along the coast back to where we started.

We finish off with a cool drink at a nearby hilltop restaurant with sensational views of the whole area.

Highlights:

Amazing views and Mallorca moonscape!
