Talaia de Son Jaumell: Amazing Mediterranean
This is one of the many routes you can enjoy from the Hotel Rural Predi Son Jaumell

You’ll be able to drink in the very best of Mallorca’s natural surroundings and spectacular landscapes.

Mallorca’s main attraction

In Mallorca, the spectacular virgin landscapes are its main attraction, offering its visitors a totally unique scenery. Its coves of crystalline water and fine sand are some of its highlights, along with its infinite mountainous landscapes and its ancient ruins, which make up the cultural heritage of the island.

One of the most interesting ways to get to know this land is by walking through its natural surroundings and discovering little-known routes. From the hotel, there are many recommended routes that will take you on amazing excursions.

The route of Es Telégrafo, la Talaia de Son Jaumell

One of the paths you can take to discover Mallorca’s scenery is Es Telégrafo, also called the Talaia de Son Jaumell or the Talaia de Capdepera. With a distance of 7.51 kilometers, which will take you around 2 hours to travel, this is one of the most popular trekking routes due to its ease and cultural appeal.

What can you find on route?

This trek begins in Cala Agulla, considered one of the most spectacular beaches in the Mediterranean area for bathing. It is very busy in the summer, but has a length of 580 meters that you can explore at your leisure. It is surrounded by mountains and an extensive pine forest, which create a truly unique landscape.

From Cala Agulla you can see the route’s final destination: the Talaia de Son Jaumell, a tower built in stone that at the end of the 19th century served as an optical telegraph between the islands of Mallorca and Menorca. To follow the route we must cross the Cala and turn left on the Camí des Coll de Sa Marina. This route passes very close to a traditional building, that, in turn, leads to Cala Moltó.

After this, the route crosses a metal barrier and then continues along a dirt track on which you’ll be accompanied by Puig de S’Aguila for a good part of the route, at an elevation of 271 meters. Later, after a fork in the road, you take the road on the right and start the ascent.

During this section of the route, you’ll cross a spectacular pine forest with a very steep climb, up to a maximum elevation of 319 meters. You can find your way by following the red marks on the tree trunks – you can’t get lost! After a few minutes, you’ll see the town of Capdepera appearing, giving you spectacular views.

You’ll soon arrive at the Talaia de Son Jaumell, which dates back to the year 1566. From there, you’ll be able to enjoy large parts of the Mallorcan landscape, with spectacular features such as Gulló, Cala Rajada, the Canyamel mountain ranges, and the Albarca and Formentor mountains. This is the final part of the route towards Es Telégrafo, but the way back is equally diverse and impressive.

You’ll start back on the route you’ve just walked down, up to the fork that points towards the road to Cala Mesquida. This route leads down the hill, first towards the sea and then between the pines and reeds. On the right, you’ll see the Corral de Ses Cabres and the Pesquera d’en Jaume I. After crossing some dunes, you’ll arrive at Sa Mesquida.

Very popular with the residents of Capdepera and tourists alike, Cala Mesquida has a quiet beach, where you can practice different water sports, enjoy the sun and waves, and practice nudism in one of the furthermost points of the beach.

The way back is wider and with a pronounced descent. It ends at Coll de Sa Marina, then connects with a path which has a ruined old house on the left, and finally returns to the first section of the trek. In this section, there are lots of landscapes and places of interest, which will make trekking through Mallorca an unforgettable experience.
