This is one of the most remote and unspoilt beaches in Mallorca. The beach of Cala Tuent is a real hidden treasure on the north coast of the island, in the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana. It’s located in the municipality of Escorca, some 40 kilometres away from Sóller, at the foot of Puig Major. On this beautiful beach - one of the least touristy on the northern coast of Mallorca - you’ll be able to enjoy the many unforgettable shades of blue of the Mediterranean.
Besides this, near this cove, you’ll find some walking and hiking routes which are perfect for couples or groups of friends.
Betlem is one of the most charming and picturesque villages in the whole of Mallorca. It’s located in the coastal municipality of Artá, at the eastern end of the bay of Alcudia, in the north-eastern part of the island. This is one of the least developed areas on the island of Mallorca. Its beautiful natural surroundings and calm, clear waters make Betlem the ideal place for a stress-free break.
PUIG DE SANT SALVADOR
Located near the village of Felanitx, the mountain of Puig de Sant Salvador is 509 metres high. At its summit we can find the Sant Salvador Sanctuary, which dates back to the 14th century and is home to a church, a chapel, and a monument to Christ the King. Most of the track up to the summit traverses a pine forest, giving you plenty of shade, and making any time of the year ideal for the climb. It’s certainly worth the effort, as the panoramic views from the top are breathtaking.
Don’t miss the chance to admire Mallorca’s beauty from the heights of Puig de Randa. Ramon Llull, one of the most distinguished figures in Catalan literature, took refuge within the walls of the beautiful Cura Sanctuary, located at the top of the mountain. For him, it was the perfect place for study and prayer, due to the peace and quiet that you can still experience in this beautiful area in the heart of Mallorca.
Nestled in the Serra de Tramuntana, the public estate of Es Galatzó has a rich natural heritage with its holm oak and garrigue forests and pine groves, as well as extensive mountain vegetation and cultivated areas with its olive, carob and almond trees, and vegetable gardens.
The estate's buildings, which were built with the aim of improving its profitability, also stand out for their heritage and historical importance. The Galatzó estate is an impressive testament to the Mallorcan way of life and its traditions.
