The Balearic Islands attract thousands of visitors every year for their stunning beaches, but that’s not all they have to offer. Whether you are a lover of the harsh nature or just a relaxing way to stretch your legs, you won’t want to miss this walking tour of the Balearic Islands.
North of Palma de Mallorca, the city of Valdemosa is one of the most beautiful in the archipelago. Take some time to explore the village, then walk the path known as the Archduke Way.
Some sections of the trail (which reaches a height of 638 meters) are steep, but the terrain is well covered. It is quite difficult and therefore suitable for experienced hikers or beginners looking for a bit of a challenge.
S’Albufera des Grau National Park
S’Albufera des Grau National Park is a particularly scenic spot for summer sightseeing and is considered to be Menorca’s largest wetland area. You’ll find many scenic hiking trails over 5,000 hectares.
The Sa Gola trail is characterized in particular by its level of difficulty and low accessibility. It’s by no means long – just under 2 kilometers, but it’s a short, sweet and unforgettable hike.
Cala de Sant Vicent
While its claim to fame may be an iconic party destination, Ibiza is home to some truly extraordinary natural wonders. One of them is the bay of Cala de Sant Vicent with its crystal clear water and dramatic cliffs that surround it.
Start on the trails before heading into the forest and mountains. At the highest point of the climb (only 240 meters), you will climb the same amazing rock before returning to the sea. To enjoy the ocean you can actually rent a boat with yachtrentalibiza.com and make a tour of the islands. The entire cycle takes about three hours and is fairly straightforward.
The Son Castelló Trail is a popular hiking option between the Mallorcan towns of Soller and Deia and is an easy and pleasant walk through the Tramutana Mountains. Within three hours (without a break) you can enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in the interior of Mallorca. If you need to return to Soler after completing the trail, buses are available.
Cala Galdana to Sant Tomas on the Cami de Cavalls
Cami de Cavalls is a centuries-old trail that will take about 20 days to fully climb. It is broken down into 20 small sections for easy management. If you only have time to walk one part of us, do this. The 11 kilometer hike from Cala Galdana to Sant Thomas will take you briefly through serene forests and along the coast. Look out for Cala Mitjana, a secluded white sand beach with turquoise waters just for swimming.
