Cycling in and around the two towns of Cala Millor and Cala Bona is a great way to spend an afternoon working off a hearty Majorcan lunch because the hire is cheap anywhere you go in comparison to places in the UK and the two towns are also very cycle friendly.
Starting in Cala Millor you can cycle along the seafront on a specific pedestrian and cycle pathway all the way to Cala Bona where you can pass the shops and cafes. It is a great, cheap and speedy way to get around which is enhanced by the range of places to padlock your cycle too and the inclusion of a padlock with each bike.
You can hire a range of items from town bikes to mountain ones, electric scooters and children's trikes but the best of all is the car-like bikes. They have from 2 seats to 6 and have everyone pedalling and one person steering. They are fantastic fun to get around the place with family and friends.
Equipment: We went to Bonanza C.B. to get our bikes - you could expect to pay the very cheap sum of 5 euros for 3hours mountain bike hire or around abouts 20 euros for the hiring of a 4seat bike.
The area is very cycle friendly and everyone does it so I advise you to give it a go because it is fun.
This is another nice walk, On leaving Lluc Monastery you cross The Coll de Sa Bataia on the road and then head down towards Caimari on an old paved Camino, Unfortnately a section this old Camino has been taken out by a landslide so there is one signed diversion but it is easy to follow.
After Caimari the path continues, mainly following the road to Selva, then the last 3k are along the busy Selva to Inca road so either take care or if you prefer there is a bus every 2 hours.
We again took a taxi from Soller to the Cuber Reservoir but this time walked in the opposite direction, First we followed the old concrete water channels, Then after leaving these behind cross The Coll D’es Coloms and drop into a valley, passing Font d’es Prat.
Then we started a long climb, eventually crossing a pass a mere 150m below Massanella which is Majorca’s highest trekking peek. From here we dropped into the valley of Torrent de Coma Freda (My Guidebook described the route as following this valley down to the Lluc main road but the route has since been changed)
We then climbed out of the valley of Torrent de Coma Freda, crossing the ridge bellow Puig Galileu and down a magnificently restored track into the valley where Lluc Monastery is situated.
As we were a bit short of time we decided to catch a taxi to the Cuber Reservoir as soon as we could after arriving in Soller and then walk the Cuber Reservoir to Soller section of our walk. Originally we were going to attempt to walk from Soller all the way to Lluc Monastery in one day but decided against this as it would have involved around 10 + hours of walking with no possibilities of a lunch stop and only a few possibilities of replenishing our water. Also my Guide-Book had described this section of the walk in the Cuber Reservoir to Soller direction.
The taxi cost us 24 euro and dropped us at the Cuber Reservoir, from here there is a good dirt road that takes you to the dam, then you cross the dam and gently walk uphill and cross The Coll de L’Ofre before dropping into the ravine of Briniaraix, then following this ravine until it ends just above Soller.
The book describes this walk as one of the Best that Majorca has to offer and I agree, Even if you only have a day available I would Strongly recommend you walking this route !!
Height Gain 340m
Height Loss 1.000m
Time – 4 ½ walking
Easy to navigate on Good well maintained paths
As I have previously stated in my introduction, part of our little Majorca trip was a planned walk from Soller to Inca.
These next Sports Travel tips are how we broke this walk down into three stages and why we chose to break them down this way.
I hope that they are of use to anyone planning this route.

I really enjoyed going cycling in Majorca, we hired out some mountain bikes at the side of Magaluf/Palma Nova beach for only 10 Euros. We went out for around 2-3 hours & went to lots of nice places in Majorca. We stopped off at some nice Cafes to enjoy a Latte Coffee & had lunch at Cala Bona.
Id recommend this trip to anyone, you can hire out mountain bikes aswell as 4 wheeled bikes for the whole family & also childrens bikes & buggies.
Equipment: There are many places along the promenade of Magaluf/Palma Nova beach to hire out bikes. Make sure you find somewhere for a good hire price, they are very competitive.
They also give you a safety helmet, knee & elbow pads if you wish & also gloves for your ride.
The resort of Santa Ponsa is very proud to have no less than three full size golf courses within a few minutes drive of the town, which are known by the less than original names of Santa Ponsa I, II and III. The first Santa Ponsa I, was designed by Folco Nardi and opened to the public in 1977. The second course is a little shorter than Santa Ponsa I, but is recognised as being one of the most technically difficult courses in the Balearic Isalnds. The third courses is still a relatively new addition having only being open in January 1999 and was designed by Francisco Lopez Segales. Visitors to the island are only unfortunately allowed to play on number 1, with the remaining two courses being reserved for share and debenture holders only!
Ok, that seams nice...but i'm afraid of heights...put it here so you'll know that you can do para-sailing on the beach. wish i had the courage! Maybe next time
Equipment: You can rent all the material on the beach. Or you can always pay just for a little ride. Enjoy the ride and then tell me how it was..:-)
We found this funny football pub in Cala Ratjada, a popular German seaside resort. So if you can´t live without the Bundesliga games this place looks really inviting I think, even if it´s in German :)
Look how brilliant our team of Hannover 96 started this new season...they won 3:0 against Hamburg!!!!! Unbelievable!!!
Equipment: Some €uro tho buy you a pint of beer probably....
This picture was taken during a hike from Sa Coma to Cala Millor (spelling?), along the sea. There's a small path, it's kinda bumpy and rough though. So bring some sneakers or something. However the breathtaking views made up for it! On the way there's also a small castle or something by the way.
Golf Fantasia is situated in the resort of Palma Nova, set in wonderful landscaped gardens. It is a superb 3 course Crazy Golf complex.

Archery,it was great,my husband enjoyed this more than me,can be found in most hotels this was taken at the hotel Lagomonte.
On many parts of the Island you can go snorkeling and see the fish we went to Cala Millor which was lovely.
Mallorca definitely has some great beaches; the best ones are to be found at the east, south and north coast of the island. At the west coast you'll mostly find cliffs.
