|North coast beaches
The north coast of Mallorca
offers very varied natural settings. Here you will both find
flat farmland, preserved wetlands and high mountains. Not to
mention the many lovely beaches.
Without a doubt, the most
popular holiday resort on the north coast is
Port d'Alcudia, which is a family favourite due
to its very child-friendly beach and wealth of activities.
People, who prefer a quieter holiday, go to the nearby town
which also has a child-friendly beach.
The predominant mountain
range in Mallorca is Serra de Tramuntana, which stretches
over the entire north-western part of the island. The
highest mountaintop is Puig Major, which is located 10 km
east of Port de Sóller. The mountain view can also be
enjoyed from the beach Cala Tuent.
The mountain range goes all
the way out to the beautiful peninsula, Formentor. Here you
will find many lovely vista points, the most popular being
Cap de Formentor at the tip of the peninsula. Formentor also
has several natural beaches, where
Cala Formentor is the most popular one.
The northern part of Mallorca
is also home of the town that historians believe to be the
oldest town on the island. Naturally, the town in question
original Alcudia. Behind the restored town walls,
there is a labyrinth of narrow streets with charming
restaurants and interesting tourist shops. Particularly on
the market days on Tuesdays and Sundays, there may be many
tourists during the high season, and then the historical
town Pollensa would be a good alternative.
The combination of flat roads
and mountain roads has made this part of Mallorca very
popular among cyclists. This includes both amateurs and
professional cycling teams, which often use this area for
training sessions before the cycling season really starts.
Some hotels have even specialised in cycling tourism.
