Link our two shorter holidays on Mallorca and discover varied landscapes, a rich gastronomic heritage and the deeply rural nature of the island as you cycle from the southern beaches to the dramatic north coast and the original ‘Costa Brava’. This is a side of the island that few tourists experience, and cycling here is a true delight, especially when combined with our selection of enchanting agroturismos and intimate country hotels offering a warm welcome and the freshest of local produce.Your journey starts on the quiet lanes that wind amongst the salt flats and sand dunes of the southern coastal plain where slowly turning windmills reflect a less hurried pace of life. It continues through the fertile patchwork of ancient farms of the central plain where red soil contrasts sharply with the pale almond blossom in spring, the orchards of apricots and cherries and the deep green of ancient carob trees. Finally, the almond groves and tiny farmsteads give way to the limestone hills of the Llevant Sierra and the dramatic north-eastern coast punctuated by rocky coves and quiet beaches. Each day there is ample opportunity to either stop and linger over a coffee and delicious pastry, browse a local market or take a dip in the Mediterranean while you cycle from one village to the next.
