Nature in Majorca: discover an island of contrasts
Cabo Formentor cape
You will have no difficulty here if your aim is to enjoy the good weather, to practice sports in a natural setting and to explore the island without following the traditional tourist routes. A good plan is to cover the more rural parts of Majorca on foot or by bicycle; you will pass through the island’s valleys, mountains and plains until you come to the villages in the interior, the viewing points in the mountain ranges of the Sierra de Tramuntana (to the northwest) or the Mondragó Nature Reserve (to the south), where you can hear the roar of the waves against the cliffs. You will find there are numerous routes to follow along country paths and local roads.
Another fun option is to hire a sailboat or motorboat (with or without a skipper) with your travel companions, and to view Majorca’s natural charms from the sea as you explore its most secluded and sun-drenched azure coves.
