Mallorca: One Day Road Trip

Mallorca is the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean. Other Balearic Islands are Menorca, Formentera, Ibiza and Cabrera, Dragonera and S’Espalmador. Even that Mallorca is mainly famous for its beaches, it is worth to plan a day trip there to explore the island.

During our trip we visit the Port de Pollença, which is situated in the Bay of Pollença. Next on your trip was the Mirador Es Colomer and Cape Formentor. Both give a pretty view on the ocean and the cliffs. It is recommenced to go there early because parking slots are limited.

There are a couple of tourist caves to be found in Mallorca, in which entry fee needs to be paid. In case you want to go to a more hidden gem, take the two hours hike to the L’Avenc de Son Pou Cave. The cave can be found between the Orient village and town of Santa Maria. Be aware that the access tunnel to the cave is only open over the weekend. We did not believe that at the end of the hiking path is really a cave because it is not marked in any map. But the adventure not knowing what is up was worth the hike. After walking through the access tunnel you will enter a 80 meters high cave. Stalagmite and stalactite formations can be found in the cave. After looking around for 20 minutes we hiked one and a half hours back to the car. During our hike we did not see any other hiker, and we had the cave completely for ourselves.

Sadly I do not have any good picture from inside the cave because of the less light.
